Co-Work with God!


I downloaded an app unto my iPad today to help plan, pray and make daily progress in my up coming prayer effort for my community.  Beginning February 22 through April 1 – I will begin a forty day prayer journey asking God to fulfill His purpose in my community. The app makes it very easy to do it. While I was browsing, I came across this little article that I thought would be a blessing to you as it was to me. It is about how we can partner with God in sharing His love and kindness.

Co-work with God

Co- work with God in the story of His love. The story started early. When did God begin to do good things in your life? Was it only after you became a Christian? Actually, the Bible is very clear about God doing good things in people’s lives long before they even know about Him. There’s a story of kindness in every person’s life.

God delights in showing His premeditated, forever love with tangible acts of kindness. Here’s why: The Bible says that “the kindness of God leads you to repentance” (Romans 2:4). God’s kindness never coerces us. Instead, His goodness “leads” us through the events of our lives to the point where we can turn, or repent. God will never force people to turn around. We have to do our own turning.
God desires relationship. God is motivated with unstoppable passion to regain relationship with people. He deeply “desires” that “all people” would “come to the knowledge of the truth” about Him (1 Timothy 2:4). Knowing the truth about God can open relationship with Him. That’s what being “saved” is all about (again, 1 Timothy 2:4).

Two ways to co-work with God. Because of His constant desire for every single person to know Him, God gives us two simple but powerful ways to work with Him in accomplishing His purpose:

1. Pray for every person. First, and most important, He wants us to pray for every person. “First of all, I urge that…prayers, petitions and thanksgiving be made on behalf of all people” (1 Timothy 2:1).

2. Convey and display the message with perfect timing. Second, God gives His people opportunity to make the message clear about Jesus with divine timing, “the testimony to be given in its proper time” (1 Timothy 2:7).

    Mar 3:14 And he chose twelve men and called them apostles. He wanted these twelve men to be with him, and he wanted to send them to other places to tell people God’s message. … Lord use me as a co-worker….. Blessings.. Bro Pat

  2. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.
    1Cor. 15:10
