Your Fruit Basket

December 9, 2016

 

"Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates [of the city]!"

Proverbs 31:31

 

When you give someone something you release it unto their keeping, custody, possession, and for their choice of use. You are presenting, gifting, and transferring something unto them for their authority and providence. As you give, you put them into a position to receive and accept.

 

The family and loved ones of the Proverbs 31 Woman did just that. They talked about her industrious and kind deeds, and reminded her of her praiseworthy efforts. They allowed her own works to testify of her. They remarked on how effective he efforts had been; for they each yielded fruit. And this was what they used to bless her with. They didn't have to finesse her character, or embellish her works; her lifestyle spoke loudly and clearly. All of her accomplishments were a praiseworthy testament to the God that she served.

 

So when others begin to remind you of your accomplishments, accept it.

When others begin to credit you for your participation in their positive life changes, believe it.

When others begin to testify of your good works in the earth, praise God for it.

 

Your own works WILL begin to praise you in the gates (from a public place, and a place of authority), and this is okay. It's okay to let your light shine. God says that a town built up and shining brightly for and in Him should not be hidden (Matthew 5:14). God has called you to partner with Him, and this is how people will come to see His goodness in dark times (Matthew 5:16). And even if others should accuse you of wrong, it's your good and honorable behavior that will shut them up (1 Peter 2:12). 

 

Receive His acknowledgements of you today. Enjoy your basket!
