Working alongside God

Colossians 3:23-24
“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.”

The words of Apostle Paul to the Colossians in chapter 3 were words of encouragement, on how to live a great life as a family and as individuals.  In the last verses, Apostle Paul admonished us on how to work wholeheartedly for God without wavering and not for men, remembering that there is a great reward in working alongside God. “knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward”.

What a great joy it is to work alongside God! He is the creator of the universe and He can impact His creativity and wisdom on you as you work for Him. The key to attaining that creativity is the Holy Spirit. In 1 Corinthians 2:10, we read how the Spirit searches out everything and shows us even God’s deep secrets.  This includes secrets that science can never discover. He wants to take you to places beyond the physical realm. Being you is not enough, you can do greater things for God, even far more, when you work alongside God.
I want to ask you these questions.

1. Can you be busy for God? 

2. Can you sacrifice all for God?

3. Can you let go of that hectic schedule for God?
Spending quality time with God provides continual recharging of your spirit man.
When you are working alongside God, you can listen to His directions and continually enjoy His presence.
Do you know, that after Jesus had spent time alone in worship and prayer to the father (God), He knew the direction He was to take and shared it with His disciplines: (Mark 1:38)?
As you withdraw to express your love for the Lord in that secret place of prayer, the Lord will reveal to you the deep things for your life.

Hence, draw aside from the world, and work alongside God, making it your major priority.
Claim His creativity today in your work, your finances, your ministry, and your home. Then, build according to the blueprint He showed you. Our God is a God of possibilities, He never fails and He will never fail you. Be available for Him and He will surely be there for you. His rewards are readily available for they are promises to them that work with and work alongside him.
