Put God in Charge

Proverbs 16:3 Put God in charge of your work, then what you’ve planned will take place.

Does God go to work with you? Right now in my work life, it is pretty hectic. Circumstances beyond my control or my companies control have made it necessary for us to move from one work site to another in order to keep providing services to our client. Which in turn means working longer and working harder for everyone.

When this happens in my life I find myself having to rely on God more and ensuring the lines of communication with Him remain open 24/7 and that I take time throughout the day to pause, Listen to Him and pay attention to Him. The Bible says in Matthew 11:28  “Come to me all of you who are tired from the heavy burden you have been forced to carry. I will give you rest.” The Message Bible, it says “Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.”

Circumstances in our lives, not just our working lives but in every area of our lives don’t always go according to plan. That is why every day in every situation and circumstances we need to remember 2 Corinthians 1:9, which says “We felt like we’d been sent to death row, that it was all over for us. As it turned out, it was the best thing that could have happened. Instead of trusting in our own strength or wits to get out of it, we were forced to trust God totally–not a bad idea since he’s the God who raises the dead!”

Verse of The Day

John 13:34-35  “Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way, I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples–when they see the love you have for each other.”

Made for Community

1 John 3:17 Suppose someone sees a brother or sister in need and can help them. If he doesn’t take pity on them, how can the love of God be in him?

 We need each other. None of us were designed to be alone. That’s why God created Eve.

Helping one another is an important part of the recovery process. In the recovery process, we should never think of ourselves as totally independent. We need the help of others and they need our help.  And, none of us are excused from that task. John 13:34 says “I give you a new command. Love one another. You must love one another, just as I have loved you.” Loving each other is a commandment, not an option.

 Recovery only works as it should when we all work together for the common good of all.

– Do you know someone who needs help and you can be that help?
