GOD IS AT WORK

GOD IS AT WORK

Philippians 2:13 (NKJV) For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

God is always at work in us.  He never stops, even when we think that nothing is happening.  His love is so overwhelming that in spite of us, He is there doing what needs to be done.

When we realize the amazing love that our Heavenly Father has for us, and His intense patience, we can sit back and let Him do what needs to be done, because He will only do things that are for our good.  You know the old saying,  “When life throws you a lemon, make lemonade!”  Well, life will throw things at us, but as we put our trust in the Great I Am, believing that He is at work within us, He will work things out for our good.  As it says in Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God.”

Now, I am not talking about when sickness or something bad comes.  We who are growing in the Lord know that these things are not of God.  But when the enemy brings stuff, and life brings stuff, we need to hold on to Him just like we would if we were on a wild ride.  We know that as the ride comes to an end, we will get off and say, “Man, that was fun!”   Well, even the bad things that happen to us will come to an end, and God will work them out for our benefit.

I am always amazed that no matter how bad a rain or snow storm is, when you give it a little time, the sun will come out again and the blue sky will appear.  Many times, it is more beautiful and fresh than ever!  In the same way, what you are going through today will come to an end, and God will bring His beautiful sunshine out for you!

Confession:  God is still working on me.  He has not given up on me, and I will not give up on myself.  My Father God is doing a good work in me, and just like it takes time for a seed to grow, this work will grow in me and bring forth a great harvest.
