Devotions are from Gary Thomas’s book, The Beautiful Fight
“The world is anxiously waiting to see what Jesus Christ can do in, by, for, and through one man wholly given to Him-God –led.” Frank Buchman
Every time we enter a room we bring something with us. We can bring the presence of Christ or we can bring a destructive attitude.
Jesus brought glory to His Father by completing the work he was given to do.
We are also called to surrender and do God’ will– to be faithful to His will at that moment.
God often makes us aware of a great need as a call for us to become part of the solution. Instead of asking why God doesn’t do something, we should ask God, “What do you want me to do?”
Great joy comes to us when we are actively involved in the larger work of building God’s kingdom. The greatest unhappiness is focusing attention on ourselves.
The object of our life is to do God’s will. It not to be happy or to be successful or famous. The happiest people are those who believe they are exactly where God wants them to be. The most frustrated ones are those who are fighting God rather than surrendering to Him.
God wants to empower us, equip us, and sustain us as we are available to do His will each day.
