One of the most important things I learned from Henry Blackaby’s Experiencing God is that God is always working and he invites me to join him. When I listen to the invitation and look to see where he is at work, it always creates a crisis of belief that will require faith and action on my part.

Eugene Peterson’s quote expresses the same truth:

The assumption of spirituality is that always God is doing something before I know it. So the task is not to get God to do something I think needs to be done, but to become aware of what God is doing so that I can respond to it and participate and take delight in it.” – Eugene Peterson

Where do you see God working in your life right now?

Will you respond to his invitation to join him?

Jesus said to them, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working. . . I tell you the truth, 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. Yes, to your amazement he will show him even greater things than these. – John 5:17, 19-20

Grace and Peace,
