As I reread my last post about the God moment in the park, I realized how limited my awareness is! Sharing that experience was meant to remind us all how God is at work in our lives. But it wasn't meant to intend that He was working only at that moment!
Think about it. We go on about our lives...we wake up after a night of sleep, we get dressed, eat our breakfast, take out the dog, go to work, eat lunch, do our usual things, eat supper, watch television, read books, and go to bed. We get immersed in our routines, without any realization that what we do is all because of God's love and grace on our lives! It's because of His protection that we get a good night's sleep. It's because of His provision that we have food to eat, a job to earn money, a home and bed to sleep in. It's because of His grace that we can go about independently without being on our backs in a hospital. And if we do find ourselves on our backs, He gives us the grace and peace to endure it. It's all because of Him! Not because of us!
God is in the control room, and He is at work at all times! He uses us to build His kingdom here on earth, and His purpose for us is to glorify Him, to have an intimate relationship with Him, and to obey Him, thereby sharing His love with others. Are you fulfilling His purpose for you? Have you thanked Him for all that He does behind the scenes?
Every minute is a God moment. Take the time to thank Him!
"My Father is always at His work
to this very day, and I, too, am working."
- Jesus (John 5:17)
