The power is in your hands

"Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might." - Ecclesiastes 9:10

"Whatever your hands find to do," refers to works that are possible. There are many things which our heart finds to do which we never should do. It is well it is in our hearts; but if we would be eminently useful, we must not be content with forming schemes in our heart, and talking of them; we must practically carry out "whatever our hand finds to do." One good deed is worth more than a thousand brilliant theories. Don't wait for large opportunities, or for a different kind of work, but do just the things we "find to do" day by day. We have no other time in which to live. The past is gone; the future has not arrived; we shall never have any time but time present. Then do not wait until your experience has ripened into maturity before you attempt to serve God. Endeavor not to bring forth fruit. Serve God now, but be careful as to the way in which you perform what you find to do - "do it with all your might." Do it promptly; do not fritter away your life in thinking of what you intend to do tomorrow as if that could compensate for the idleness of today. No one ever served God by doing things tomorrow. If we honor Christ and are blessed, it is by the things which we do today. Whatever you do for Christ, throw you whole soul into it. Do not give Christ a little slurred work, done as a matter of course now and then; but when you do serve Him, do it with heart, and soul, and strength. But where is the might of Christians? It is not in ourselves, for we are perfect weakness. Our might lies in the Lord of Hosts. Then let's seek His help; let's proceed with prayer and faith, and when we have done what our "hands finds to do," let's wait upon the Lord for His blessing. What we do in this manner will be well done, and will not fail in its effect.
