There are those who will achieve greatness in their earthly walk. You must remember each day, that it was I who allowed you to step to that platform. You are not greater than any who might look to your life for inspiration, I have chosen you to be a servant among many.
If you are a pastor or a teacher and you speak to many who listen, you are serving my chosen ones, you are a minister of my words and the works of my begotten. Allow not the following to be your reward for that will usurp your true rewards that are of me. Allow not earthly rewards, though you might enjoy many, be your true reward either for these will be cast away when my son returns in all his glory.
Give all glory unto me. If men seek to glorify who you are, if they want to praise you because you have ministered to their hearts, to their infirmities, if you have spoken words that have moved others and stirred longings in their hearts for truth, you must turn that praise unto me. The prince of darkness will seek to lure you into taking on the mantle and crown as a king so that you can then be toppled and those who followed you be dismayed and lost.
You are my guide that you teach those who look to you to look to me that they find their true reward is in heaven.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD: and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Psalms 33:12 KJV
