Aryan: Your Work!

Updated: Nov 15


The Lord has given to every man His work. It is His business to do it; And the Devil’s business to hinder Him, if he can. So sure as God has given you a work to do, Satan will try to hinder you. He may present other things more promising. He may allure you by worldly prospects; he may assault you with slander, torment you with false accusations, set you to work defending your character, employ pious persons to lie about you, editors to assail you, an excellent man to slander you. You may have Pilot and Herod, Ananias and Caiaphas all combined against you, and Judas standing by you ready to sell you for 30 pieces of silver; and you may wonder why all those things come upon you. Can you not see that the whole thing has brought about through the craft of the devil - to draw you off from your work and hinder your obedience to God?


Keep about your work. Do not flinch because the lion roars; do not stop to stone the devils dogs; do not fool away your time chasing the devils rabbits. Do your work. Let liars lie, let sectarians quarrel, let corporations resolve, the editors publish, let the devil do his work; but see to it that nothing hinders you from fulfilling the work that God has given you.


He has not sent you to make money. He has not commanded you to get rich. He has never bidden you defend your character. He has not set you at work to contradict falsehood which Satan and his servants may start to peddle. If you do those things, you will do nothing else; you will be at work for yourself and not for the Lord.


Keep about your work. Let your aim be as steady as a star. Let the world brawl in bubble. You may be assaulted, wronged, insulted, slandered, wounded and rejected; you may be abused by foes, forsaken by friends, and despised and rejected of men, but see to it with steadfast determination, with unfaltering zeal, that you pursue the great purpose of your life and object of your being, until at last you can say, “I have finished the work which Thou gavest me to do.”
