Pastor’s Desk

February 2019

Today I want to introduce you to a phrase that Susan has been using recently. It is ’’we have to give God something to work with’’. It works like this: When there is something we would like to see happen; could be in our lives or in our family or in the church and we go to God asking for His help he may ask us; ‘well are you going to do something towards it’?

’We have to give God something to work with.”

Paul tells us that ‘we are workers together with God’

A great example of how this works is when Elijah went to the top of Carmel to ask God to send the rain and end the three and a half year drought. Seven times he prayed and all he could produce was a cloud the size of a man’s hand but when Elijah had done all he could God filled the sky with clouds and a deluge of rain fell upon the earth. He gave God something to work with and when he had done all he could God moved in and added His mighty power.

The next time you are wanting something to happen take a step of faith and give God something to work with. It could be your time, your energy, a telephone call, your money or a visit you make, and then see God work on your behalf.

Exciting isn’t it.
