Partnership

God does His part.
Do I do mine?

Am I being responsible for the aspects of my life that God put me in care of?

“Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm” (Ephesians 6:13, NLT).

Most times, I feel like I am doing an abysmal job of everything.
I feel out of control, out of step with this life that I have been given to live.
There are times I just want to sit in a corner while God does His thing.
Times I just want to be a puppet for God’s use – at least that way everything will be done “right”.

But that is not the life I have been given to live.
God’s calling has never been to “right” or “perfection”.
God’s calling has always been about grace.
Where partnership is the rudder that steers these sails.

Partnership. Wow. Working together.
The creator of this whole universe,
The maker of the many galaxies within it,
The architect of all the wonders of the world,
The designer of everything that takes my breath away,
The owner of all things that brings me pleasure;
Desires nothing more than to have a relationship with me, to partner with me.

I do not deserve this love.
That is just it. I. DO. NOT. DESERVE. THIS. LOVE.
But, God doesn’t care about that.
God chooses to love me still.
Every single day, every hour, every minute, every second;
God chooses me over and over again.

Because of God’s choice, God always keeps His end of the bargain.
God does His part (guides me, guards me, instructs me, protects me & prays for me).
Do I do mine?
Do I take time to understand what I need to do?
Am I intentional about this partnership?
““Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?” (Amos 3:3).

Am I being responsible for the aspects of my life that God put me in care of?
Am I suited up for each battle?
