Be Faithful to the Lord in Your Daily Actions

Good morning, Happy Souls!

Bill Keller wrote a devotional today that I
recommend to you. He has given me permission to
copy his e-mails, and I'm sure he would be happy if
you would share this with people you know as well.

Your relationship with Jesus just begins with salvation.
Then it's time to walk your commitment as a Christian.

Please read on.


(Luke 19:17, Revelation 2:10, 1 Samuel 12:24, 26:23,
2 Chronicles 19:9, 1 Peter 4:10)

Being faithful. Between the news, what happens in my
life on any given day, the issues I read about in the
lives of those we minister to, a "to do" folder with
hundreds of Devotional topics and always 30-40
Devotionals that are in various stages of completion,
I could continue to write the Daily Devotional every day
as long as God gives me breath or until Jesus returns.
However, today I want to share with you what is perhaps
the most important thing a follower of Jesus Christ can
do each day, and that is being faithful.

I had been serving the Lord full time for over 9 years
before Liveprayer began. As I look back over these past
80 months, without a doubt the most important lesson I
have learned is to be faithful. Now, that may sound
very basic to you, and it is. However, knowing to be
faithful and BEING FAITHFUL are two different things.
During those first 9 years I KNEW to be faithful and
believe in my heart for the most part I was. These past
80 months I HAVE been faithful, largely because it was
the one thing that I had control over and was able to do.
I have learned the hard lesson that if nothing else, no
matter what life may throw at us, we can be faithful to
the Lord.

This word today is perhaps one of the most profound
things I will ever teach you so please, open your heart
and receive this. It doesn't matter where you are in
your journey with Christ, whether you got saved 5
minutes ago or you have been walking with the Lord for
80 years, whether you are still looking for some way to
serve God or have been faithfully serving the Lord for
many decades, this message is applicable and relevant to

You see, every child of God, every person who has accepted
Christ into their hearts and lives by faith, has the same
general purpose of serving and glorifying God with their
life. Everyone has been called to do that in different
ways, but all of God's children have the same general
purpose. We are here to serve Him and bring glory to His
name through our daily lives. The greatest way we can
accomplish that is by being faithful to whatever it is God
has called us to do that day.

I get people asking me every day what great things they
can do for God and I tell them that the greatest thing
they can do for God is to be faithful to whatever it is
God has called them to do that day. Nothing impresses
God more than our faithfulness. We can talk about loving
God, but we prove we love God by being faithful. As the
old saying goes, "talk is cheap, actions speak louder
than words." God is not interested in our words as much
as He is in our ACTIONS!

Again, I believe in my heart that those first 9 years in
the ministry I was being faithful, but during these past
80 months I KNOW I have been faithful. Like most things,
I learned how to be faithful by being in the fire. Prior
to Liveprayer, I never owned a computer, never sent an
email, and to be honest never wanted to either! I was one
generation above the computer age and was very happy to
not have that as part of my life. Looking back, it is
no wonder why God called me into this ministry since
anyone who knew about computers would have thought it was
impossible to do what Liveprayer has done. In the natural
it was, I was just too ignorant to know it at the time and
allowed God to be glorified since we know NOTHING IS

I have kept fairly comprehensive notes on the nearly 7
years of Liveprayer. Other than God and my wife, nobody
would ever believe what has happened or what goes on
behind the scenes that people never see to make
Liveprayer possible each and every day for so many lost
and hurting people all over the world. I thought I had
faith, but I didn't know what faith was until Liveprayer.
I thought I was being faithful to God, but I learned how
to really be faithful during these years of Liveprayer.

Between the technical challenges to do live-streaming
video 24/7, something at the time and still today is
really only done by the pornographers, sending out a few
Daily Devotionals by email that is now over 2 million
daily, the free LPeMail service, the daily hack attempts
by people trying to shut Liveprayer down, and all that
goes into keeping this massive technical system up and
operational 24/7, to the ministry challenges of writing a
theologically sound, interesting, challenging, and
inspirational "word" every day that will minister to the
reader, sending personal answers to over 40,000 incoming
prayer requests daily, encouraging the lost to come to
faith in Christ and those who know the Lord to live a
committed life, to do what nobody else is doing by having
a "live" TV program on major network stations for an hour
a night, 5 nights a week and all that entails, to the
never-ending challenges of raising the finances without
falling into the traps, games, merchandising, and
manipulation so many use to survive....Liveprayer has
been and still is literally a 24/7 walk of faith so far
above my ability to comprehend or control.

The one thing that I could understand and the one thing
I could control was being faithful! That starts with
getting up. Yes, I said getting up. How many days did I
want to simply stay in bed, forget whatever the problems
were and just sleep. Being faithful starts with
something as basic as getting out of bed! I can't tell
you how many days over these past 80 months I have shown
up at my office, put the key in the door, and prayed as I
turned that key that God would give me the strength to do
what I was I supposed to do that day and surrendered all
the rest to Him. After that, it was simply a matter of
being faithful and doing the things that I needed to get
done that day.

I love you and care about you so much. I know many of
you are struggling today with the problems of life. My
word for you is to BE FAITHFUL. As you are faithful in
being about the Father's business, He will be faithful
in being about your business. God knows your hurts, and
your pains, and your needs. He has promised to never
leave you nor forsake you. Be faithful in doing the
things that you have been called to do and know that the
Lord will take care of the rest. Don't allow the enemy
to distract you and paralyze you over things you can't
control, since that keeps you from doing the things that
you can control.

I will be praying for you today. I will be praying for
you and your family and the needs you have in your life
today. However, I will be praying especially for you to
hear this message today about being faithful. No matter
what is going on in your life, the one thing that you CAN
do, is be faithful. Be faithful to pray. Be faithful to
trust the Lord for whatever your needs are. Be faithful
to live your life in a way that is pleasing and acceptable
to God. Be faithful to serve the Lord in whatever way you
have been called to serve. God loves you so much and you
can show how much you love Him by being faithful.

When your life is over and you stand before God, there is
only one thing the child of God should desire to hear,
and that is "well done thou good and FAITHFUL servant!"

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller
