WORKING WITH GOD

We all know the things we want God to do in our lives. We keep talking about what God should do to turn our lives around and take us to the next level. What we tend to forget is the fact that we are co-workers with Christ. This means that God works with us to do His will on the earth. From the creation in Genesis, we see God give man dominion over all the earth. That dominion has not been taken from us. By falling into sin, man gave the devil opportunity to take that dominion, but God still expects man to exercise dominion on the earth.

Therefore God expects you to work with Him to bring His purpose and Will to be done on the earth. You are a partner with God in your life. God has a plan for you and you must work with Him to bring that plan to pass. While we raise our faith and trust God to do great things, we must always remember that He is going to do them in us, through us and with us. You are a very important part of the plan of God. You are his ambassador on the earth acting on His behalf as He works through you every day.

SCRIPTURE READING: Matthew 16:13-19 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” So they said, “Some [say] John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed [this] to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

DEVOTION PRAYER: Oh Lord, may I work with You to bring your purpose and plan in this world. Teach me to raise my faith to see that these great things that You’re working in me come to pass in Jesus’ name, Amen.
