Active: Day 18 & FMF

Your commitment to God is a settled affair. You are not going anywhere. To borrow from the words of the Apostle Peter, you would say to anyone who asked why you are still serving a God who appears absent or inactive in your life, “To whom shall I go? He alone has the words of eternal life. He is my only hope” (John 6:68, AMP).

At the same time, you are feeling weary. You hear the testimonies of others and see how active He is in their lives and wonder, “When will my turn come?” Child of God, know this to be true, your Father God, is active in your life right now.  May the verses below remind you of this truth and infuse you with strength in every place you need it. 

“For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure” (Philippians 2:13, AMP).

“And there are [distinctive] ways of working [to accomplish things], but it is the same God who produces all things in all believers [inspiring, energizing, and empowering them]” (1 Corinthians 12:6, AMP).
