We are God’s workers, working together. (1 Cor. 3:9)
In Just Like Jesus, Max Lucado writes: "It’s a wonderful day indeed when we stop working for God and begin working with God… Fellow workers? Co-laborers? God and I work together? Imagine the paradigm shift this truth creates. Rather than report to God, we work with God. Rather than check in with him and then leave, we check in with him and then follow. We are always in the presence of God… There is never a nonsacred moment!"
I don’t know about you, but I need constant reminders of how differently the Kingdom of God works from the kingdom of this earth. God the all-knowing, all-powerful, omnipotent, all-loving, holy, just, righteous King wants to be my friend, my father, my savior, my co-worker. My roll is to see where God is at work and to join Him in it. This life isn’t about me, it’s about Him. I’m to thank Him in all things — including leaky shower stalls and holes in my kitchen ceiling. For this is the will of God for me in Christ Jesus. (1 Thess. 5:18)
I think my vision is way too small most of the time.
Lord Jesus, expand my vision. Help me to see beyond my own little domain where I fool myself into thinking I’m the master. Open my eyes that I might see the broad vistas through Your eyes. Remind me that I’m yoked with You and that the canvas upon which You are painting eternity is endless, not the little square that I’m looking at from three inches away. Amen.
