A visit to the Ants-2
Proverbs 6:6 “Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:”
The first thing God introduced to man was work! The first thing God Himself told us He did was to create the heavens and the earth that was work, real hard work!
God didn’t rest until he was done working. Jesus also came and said:
John 5:17 “But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.”
John 10:37 “If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.”
In order words a lazy, non-working man is not a believer! Hear Jesus again:
John 14:12 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”
Jesus said, he worked hard and as believers we must work hard, if not harder than him! Don’t just read that scripture with your religious googles, bend your back and work hard!
Although ants are frustrating when they get into your home at times, it’s all part of their work ethics. You stop them from moving or working when you kill them. “Ants always die in active service”, no retirement scheme.
I have since discovered that some of the most slothful and lazy men on this planet are believers! Many a times we prefer to pray when work is required. We switch to prayer and fasting when the unbelievers are busy working hard and we wonder why God is not answering the prayer!
I have news for you:
2 Thessalonians 3:10 “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.”
Work is one of the New Testament commandments! There is a place for prayer and fasting and a place for hard work. God has answered your prayer but He will not come down and do your part.
God did His own work by providing all we need in nature.
