Now We Can Work Together

Now we can work this thing out: If you let Me work through you and you let your work reflect Me, then everybody looking at you will really see Me, and when they see Me they will understand that it is not you they see, but Me, and they will be drawn to you because I AM in you.

Sounds like a riddle, but after all, that is the way life in Christ is. Sounds like something worthy of repeating, like something you've got to hear again, but after all, that is the way life in Christ is. At first glance it doesn't seem to make sense, but it sure works. It brings about My will.

Stop resorting to your own ways. Discouragement has been bound up, disappointment has been cast back into the pit, anguish and anxiety have been overcome by the blood of the Lamb, now walk in the understanding and the confidence that I AM your God and now we can work together.

I know you've read it, but I'll say it you again: If you will be My people, then I WILL be your God. Being your God means that I AM in control of all things, far and near, that concern you. Being your God means that I know what you don't and you can trust Me to work on your behalfeven when you can't figure it out. Being your God means you can let down your defenses and trust Me to take care of these things for you. And, when it is all said and done, you will figure out that it wasn't you, nor your witty inventions, nor your abilities, but you will be able to say "THAT was God."  [Thus Saith the Lord, Our God]

"For I am the LORD your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place." Isaish 43:3
