The Works Of The Lord

"Come and see the works of the Lord... Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth."
- Psalm 46:8-10

God is the Living God, and He is mightily at work in the world today. He is mightily at work, touching many hearts and lives, and pursuing a personal relationship with all people. He is the same now as He was in the days when He did miraculous works in the Bible. Nothing is too hard for Him and nothing is impossible for the Living God. He has total power and authority over our spiritual enemy and over all things (see Luke 10:19 and Matthew 2818). So why are there many people who do not see and experience the God of miracles, the Almighty and All-Powerful Living God ?

There are many reasons (sin, rebellion, unbelief,...). Another reason is that we need to adjust our lives to where God is working in order to join Him in His work, and many people are not willing to do this. We need to let go of our own will, our own visions, our own plans and ideas of how we can serve the Lord, and we need to follow God's vision. God is God, and we are not. And we need to be willing to pay the cost of joining God in His work. There will always be a cost, and sadly many people are not willing to pay it. However, the cost is always worth it to be able to see what God is going to do. Jesus paid a great price in order for us to have a personal relationship with Him and to have the privilege of serving Him, and we owe it to Him to be fully submissive and obedient in every area of our lives, including our ministry for Him.

In Psalm 46:8 God says "Come and see the works of the Lord." God wants you to join Him in His work of helping people to have a reconciled personal relationship with Him. He wants you to see His glory and His great works. But you need to be willing to go wherever He wants you to go, and be whatever He wants you to be, and do whatever He wants you to do. He has a plan and a vision for your life and ministry, and it is up to you to seek God with all of your heart to find it, and then to be willing to do whatever it takes to become a part of His plan and vision.
