Who Works In You.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:12   New King James Version                                   

I believe we all have that time in our lives when we ask the question: why am I here? 

                                                                                        

Some go off on stupid treasure hunts for the meaning of life without God.

It will never be found.                                                                                    

When we sincerely request of our Lord what His mission is in our lives He will slowly (it may take years, it may take decades. For me I served Him in many capacities over thirty decades. Each service was preparing me for a bigger one he had in store for me) reveal it to us.                         

Do not forget that Moses was tending sheep in the wilderness for forty years before he received his calling In that time he learned how to tend sheep which was preparing him to be the Sheppard for the Israelites.           

It is in a long slow process that both our obedience and our faith grows stronger. 

                                                                                                  

One feeds the other.                                                                                        

As we obey and step out into the unknown having little faith, Jehovah reveals He is there to guide us. This builds our faith which prepares us for even greater challenges in which we are obedient to His next calling in our lives.                                                                                                      

Once this occurs we understand Gods divine providence for our being here which brings true satisfaction to our lives which is a great blessing.                                           

“It is a vain thought to flee from the work that God appoints us, for the sake of finding a greater blessing, instead of seeking it where alone it is to be found – in loving obedience.”  George Eliot

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (God is present) for being there to constantly guide me on the divine path You have prepared for me to travel in my obedient humble service to You which ultimately leads to the Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me from before time began. I humbly thank you in the name of my gentle but strong Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                            

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day.

According to Who?

ACCEPT HIS CALL INTO HIS LIFETIME SCHOOL AND SERVICE

We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28 New King James Version

Are you involved in ministry and no matter what you do it seems to fail?

Are you involved in ministry and no matter what you do it seems unfulfilling?

Could it be that you are not where you belong?

Could it be that you are doing ministry that you want to do instead of being where Jehovah wants you to be?

Notice we are called to Gods purpose not our own. Now where He leads us will be difficult and many times unglamorous.

 

It is good for it to be difficult because hat help us be more dependant upon Jehovah and not ourselves. In the process this leads us to a deeper love and appreciation for the Lord.

Could it be that it is unglamorous because the Lord does not want us to be full of pride but rather full of respect for Him?

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hesseh (God is love) bless me to concentrate on emulating Your divine love while fulfilling Your divine purpose in my dedicated life to You. I humbly request this in the name of He who followed Your purpose all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                      

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day.
