Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. Philippians 2:12–13
Thinking about what to do today and came across some good directions of where to start. It doesn’t really matter what I put on my check list for the day, whatever I do I need to be about my daily work – my ministry. And what exactly is that? My ministry is my work . . . whether I’m a teacher, videographer, law enforcement officer, stay-at-home mom, landscape worker, veterinarian, lawyer, clerk at a store, CEO of a company, plumber, minister, administrative assistant or . . . and that list goes on and on. I am called to work at it, believing in His promise that in this day God will be at work in me to will and work for His good pleasure
So whatever I find written on my “to-do” list today . . .
- plants for planter
- pick up birthday cards
. . . I know that with every moment God is graciously with me. I am filled with confidence, hope, and energy for the day because He doesn’t just “show up” – He is there as the decisive worker in my day.
Whatever I am to do today, I don’t do it on my own. I have the grace of the living Christ — always there to work for me at every moment today that I enter.
