COOPERATE WITH GOD

A group of miners were trapped in a mine shaft some years ago in Chile. It took several weeks before they were freed from their cave as the process was delicate and required the expertise of many professionals from around the world. While these miners were trapped, the rescuers had to make their lives a bit comfortable as they waited for their deliverance. So through the tiny gaps in the rocks they sent them the things they needed bit by bit. They sent mattresses, a telephone, a computer and even a television. The items were disassembled into tiny pieces, sent through these tiny cracks in the shaft then re assembled by the miners in the cave. The miners had to do something in order to enjoy what was sent their way.

God has been giving you what you need bit by bit and he expects you to assemble it into what you need for life. God is not raising a lazy church that simply sings and all is sorted. You must actively cooperate with God in order to get into your destiny. Go get that degree you need. Go start that business. Lay the foundation of that building. Do something practical that cooperates with what God is doing in your life today. God is waiting on your cooperation to release in your life that next level of your destiny. So don’t just sit there doing nothing! Get busy working with God today!

SCRIPTURE READING: 1 Corinthians 3:6-10 I planted, Apollos watered, but God [all the while] was making it grow and [He] gave the increase. So neither he who plants is anything nor he who waters, but [only] God Who makes it grow and become greater. He who plants and he who waters are equal (one in aim, of the same importance and esteem), yet each shall receive his own reward (wages), according to his own labor. For we are fellow workmen (joint promoters, laborers together) with and for God; you are God’s garden and vineyard and field under cultivation, [you are] God’s building. According to the grace (the special endowment for my task) of God bestowed on me, like a skillful architect and master builder I laid [the] foundation, and now another [man] is building upon it. But let each [man] be careful how he builds upon it,

DEVOTION PRAYER: Oh Lord, teach me to cooperate with what you are doing in my life. May I have understanding in all that You are building in me so as to assemble the bits in Jesus name. Amen
