They that wait for Jehovah shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall be weak, and not faint. Isaiah 40.31.

I heard a missionary once say: if we are not able not to work for God, we will not be used by Him to save sinners; but if we are able not to work for God’s sake, we will be used by Him to save people. This does not mean He is going to save souls without the instrumentality of the preaching of the gospel by men. Nevertheless, if a work is not of God’s will, we must be willing not to do it. We must not act presumptuously. Without the command of God, we would rather be quiet than move ahead. And such kind of people will be sent by Him to save souls.

To do anything without being sent or ordered is like building a house on the sand or else like gold plating. It may stand temporarily or it may glitter for a while, but it will be destroyed at the judgment seat of Christ. Only those works that closely follow the command of God are useful.
