As we journey with God, we will find that He is constantly working in us. He’s working to get rid of that which is unattractive to Him and that which is useless and possibly even dangerous. He wants to replace that which doesn’t belong with that which is beautiful and useful to Him and healthy for us. But there is another reality that comes along with our renewal process – exhaustion.
God’s purpose for our life and our profitability flows out of our foundation. That’s why God has to do a work in us before He can ever do a work through us. God knows what His plans are for you, but first He must take His truth and transform us. Together, the foundation and the transformation makes it presentation possible.
God has a wonderful plan for our lives that He is longing to bring into fruition. However, His will for our life requires work that must be done in, with, and through our life. While the work may not be easy, it’s necessary and rewarding. It’s time for the people of God to get back to the plow and make preparations for the blessings of the Lord.
While God had promised to bring His people out of Egypt and into Canaan Land, His primary goal was to bring them to Himself so that He could make them more like Himself. That’s the same thing that God wants to do in our life. Oftentimes what we view as a detour is actually a divine appointment – the exact place that God needs us to be so that He can accomplish something of great value in us.
Most would agree that God is good. However, it’s easy for us to overlook how God has blessed us when it seems that our whole world is falling apart. But here’s the thing, there is a huge possibility that you would never have noticed the blessing of God without your present burden. Our circumstances do not dictate or define the goodness of God; our circumstances simply direct us to the goodness of God.
