Sometimes I think it would be easier to walk with God if He would send us each a Post-it note every morning that included a list of “things to do” for the day.
We could then check off all the things specifically chosen for us.
__smile at your neighbor when getting your mail
__invite your co-worker to Bible study
__pray for your friend
__share a particular verse with someone who is struggling
If every Christian had this morning list, just think of all things that could be done every day in the name of God.
But, I’m just thinking that God knows how we are about lists.
At first, we check them off meticulously.
Excited about our new method of being organized.
After a while, though, those very lists we longed for become “one more thing” on our bigger list of “things we need to do,”and the stacking of lists begins.
Before we know it, we are days behind.
The arrival of our next list of “assignments” suddenly becomes more of a burden than an opportunity.
That may be the very reason God chooses to work in this world on His own and then allow us to step in when we see a work in progress.
Maybe God is working on the heart of a co-worker and we notice them asking more questions about God and faith.
This is a chance to share a little part of our life story with that person, joining God where He’s already working.
Today, walk with God by having your eyes and ears open to where He is already at work in the world around you.
Then join Him there.
That’s what walking with God looks like.
“Jesus said to them, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.” …….
Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself;
he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.
For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does.”
John 5:17, 19-20
