God Is Working Through You

March 20 (2 Corinthians 9:8)

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.  (ESV)

Almost all of us have programs or apps running in the background that we have forgotten or were completely unaware of.  Sometimes I will check my phone and find apps operating that I have no recollection of opening.  Do you realize that God is always at work in your life, whether you realize it or not?

In a quite stunning away I came face to face with this recently.  Omitting the details, I will simply say that God showed me very clearly how He has been using my calling as a teacher to work in lives in ways I could not possibly have imagined, and I needed to see that.  I needed to have this peek behind the scenes, and He was gracious enough to give it to me.

When you question your calling or the value of your work or just call into question what you are doing with your life, consider this verse.  God is at work in all things and at all times so that you may abound in every good work.  If you have surrendered your life to Him then He is at this moment working through you.  What more could anyone want?

Father, I have doubts sometimes about what I am doing.  Am I truly doing all that You have called me to do?  Confirm Your calling in me.  Show me how Your purposes are being accomplished in my life so that with confidence I may run my race to the finish.  I pray this in the name of Jesus, Who for the glory set before Him endured all things, even the cross.  Amen.

  1. I find my personal and praise life constantly thwarted by work life. I've tried to create balance but work keeps demanding more while offering little. I don't understand what God is trying to show me with the constant professional stress.
