Deuteronomy 10 v 12
“And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the
LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy
God with all thy heart and with all thy soul.”
Service is work done or duties performed by some individual or group of persons, organizations
etc. for an individual, or a group of persons or an organization.

    Luke 22 v 26
    “But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger;
    and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.”
    Service is enjoined by God. Until you make God the center of your life, nothing will hold for
    you. Service is the gateway to greatness. Serving God is profitable. It is your insurance against
    every satanic yoke of bondage. Your commitment in the service of God determines the quality
    of your destiny. Service to God without looking back, will place you on a high pedestal and
    distinguishes you in your generation. Your freedom is tied to your readiness to serve God.
    Service makes a living conduit pipe through which God can flow to reach the world. God is
    looking for channels not containers. In the kingdom of God, only those who are out to serve the
    interest of and the needs of their subjects as unto God will ever become leaders. If you are not
    willing to serve, you will never become a leader in the kingdom. It is a choice you have to

    Of a truth, everyone on earth wants to enlarge in life and have good success. But there are
    conditions and standards for it. As children of God, we are expected to have good success. But
    no one can have it without service. This is because success does not jump at people at people
    like wealth does. Wealth could be of benevolent in nature. The true purpose of service is to get
    at an expectation.
    Exodus 23 v 25
    “And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy
    water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.”
    The scriptural essence of service is of 2 folds: Blessings and Healing. God expects that when
    we truthfully serve Him, he would bless us and also heal us. But when we do not serve Him
    accordingly, we would have the opposites i.e. Cursing instead of Blessings and Sickness instead
    of Healing.
    Ephesians 6 v 7
    “With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:”
    You cannot enjoy the benefits of being a covenant partner with God, if you do not know how to
    serve. There is a way of escape in God and that is by surrendering all that you are and have unto
    God. God’s way to greatness is through willing and obedient service. This guarantees your
    liberty. Great destinies are discovered and recovered through service. You can serve God in any
    capacity, even without being noticed or appreciated. You can work out a good and glorious
    destiny for yourself even for your generation yet unborn; as you commit yourself to the service
    of God, don’t allow your destiny to rot. You are a king and priest unto God. Rise up and shine,
    for you are a house that is built on top of a hill.
    Matthew 6 v 33
    “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things
    shall be added unto you.”
    If you refuse to serve God, you will not only serve your circumstances, but satan will begin to
    Lord it over you. Nothing could stop Daniel or turn his focus off God. Even in captivity, he was
    distinguished. He never gave in to the dainties, the fantasies from the king’s palace. If you allow
    sat, he will negotiate your destiny and your freedom to destruction. He hates the truth for he
    knows that service is the royal highway to a great destiny. If you are ready and willing to be
    committed and be the best in God’s service anytime, anywhere, your lifting will know no
    bound. You are in the kingdom to serve and not to usurp, there are needs to be met, fallow
    grounds to be broken, dry grounds to be watered, destinies to be turned around, we are not a

    wasted generation. God is counting on you and me; stop grumbling, stop murmuring, be who
    God made you to be. You can do all things through CHRIST who strengthen you. Give up self,
    give up any and everything that endangers pride and be wholly committed to God in service.
    Don’t be trapped by Satan, don’t destroy your destiny, don’t allow the devil to mess up your
    destiny for you. Be out to serve, not for what man can give to you for who can quantify your
    potential? Your service will take you to the top. It is a choice you must take.
