God IS at work in your life
September 8, 2009
"… And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?"
The verse above presents a profound question, doesn't it? It asks, "What is God calling you to do?"
The book of Esther is one of the most intriguing in the Bible. It never mentions the name of God. There's not even a pronoun that refers to him! Yet Esther was someone who fulfilled what God called her to do.
And what we see in Esther is the miraculous hand of God at work through her to end a holocaust being waged against the Jewish people! We also see God orchestrating circumstances so that the king of Persia would choose Esther as his wife. And in his perfect timing, Esther used her God-given influence to save her people!
From our perspective, life can sometimes seem like a random series of events, when what we are really witnessing is the invisible hand of God at work around us.
That same hand… the invisible, sovereign hand of God… is at work in your life. No matter what you're going through, God is working progressively and providentially in your life right now.
So today, ask him to help you recognize where his hand is at work, and then choose to work with him to fulfill his purpose for your life.
GOD IS WORKING PROGRESSIVELY AND PROVIDENTIALLY IN YOUR LIFE.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
