19 Aug Jesus is Always Working – 8/19/20
John 12:16 – “His disciples did not understand these things at first, but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written about him and had been done to him.”
Even the disciples who were walking with Jesus weren’t fully aware of the magnitude of all the things that had happened. It was only after the crucifixion and the ascension when the Holy Spirit woke them up that they realized everything that had taken place.
Can you look back at your life and see what Jesus has done for you now that you have been spiritually awakened? If so, give God his praise and glory. If not, ask him to reveal to you how he’s worked in your life. Just because we don’t see Jesus working in our lives everyday doesn’t mean that he isn’t. We must believe that everything he does has a purpose and trust that all things are done for the good of those who love him (Romans 8:28)
Dear Heavenly Father, I want to thank you for always being there for me even when I didn’t realize it. Thank you for opening my eyes, heart and soul to see how merciful you have been in my life. I pray that those around me can see how you have worked in their lives as well. I pray that we all continue to see that even in our hardest moments you are working in our lives. You’re such an amazing, big and wonderful God and I thank you for never giving up on us. In Jesus Name, Amen.
