Today’s devotional is teaching us that when we are on a mission for God, or doing His work, that He covers that with His blessing. What that tells me is that even my human self who screws up from time to time, God uses my works in His name to bless others. Even when we may not give it our all that day, or outside sources are interfering with our work, God steps in and fixes it, so that it can still help His people. I imagine when the deciples were writing the books of the bible, they had bad days, and the same with the many scholars that King James employed to translate the bible from many books in different languages to what we know as the Bible. King James knew mistakes could be made and that is why he had so many translating the bible and then after completion, only what they all agreed on was the true and proper translation, was written down in the Kings language. He did this for himself yes, but he also shared it with the common man so everyone could read the word and not just the priest or pharaccies. Every man had access to the Bible, God’s direction and guidance for mankind. In this same fashion, mankind begins projects with the best intentions, then our human nature, with distraction and sin come into play. It is God’s blessing on the work that allows what reaches His people to be exactly what He wants it to be. He knows what will effect John boy, and what will move Mary Ellen, and that is what gets done in the end so it can affect change and allow God to speak to the average man. God’s blessing on a project is detrimental and we must stay in constant prayer, so that He will allow you to reach others with His message.
Even my blog, there are days when the world drags me down, I could be in extreme pain, or having a hard time staying focused on the scripture and it’s meaning. It is God knowing my heart and intention is to bring Him glory, that lets the words come out the way that they should. I spend time in prayer before I begin reading the devotional each day, asking God to use me to reach others. I believe that everyone who has a true love of God, can be used for His purpose. I chose this way because I was so desperate to still feel like I could do something to give back to my Father God, and I can do this from the prison known as my bed. I ask God to give me the words that will reach others for Him.
There will be days when the world interferes, but I have to keep my self focused on doing His work. I pray that I might be able to help just one person, and I give it over to God. I pray that I am completely open to being His tool to help others. Thanks so much for sharing part of your day with me please enjoy this devotional from His Victorious Indwelling:
