For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. -Psalm 84:10
“I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than . . .” I believe this is a heart that God wants us to have when it comes to serving Him.
So many times when it comes to serving God, especially as we grow and mature, we can get to the point where we think we’re above certain tasks. What used to satisfy us, doesn’t any more, our attitudes shift, we think we should be doing “more important” tasks. We become frustrated that we’re not advancing as we think we should.
Anyone else guilty of this other than me?
God’s really been showing me that He wants me to have the attitude of the psalmist. Recognizing that if I’m doing anything for God, it’s better than anything else I could be doing with my life.
I’m recognizing that it doesn’t matter if the only thing I’m asked to do is to hold a door for the rest of my life, if it’s for God, I’ll do it, I’ll be faithful, I’ll have a great attitude and I’ll do it with all of my heart.
Faithfulness is a much bigger issue than we’ve made it out to be. Faithfulness is a heart issue. Promotion is a God issue. If we take care of the faithfulness issue, God will take care of the promotion issue. In His timing.
Are you willing to be a door holder for God? What areas of your life have you let a bad attitude sneak in because you forgot who you’re really working for and why you’re really doing it? Repent, and with humility, become a door holder!
