I came across this recently: “Keep your ministry on a miracle basis. If you can explain what’s going on, God didn’t do it.” [Bob Cook]
In the eyes of God, all of life is “sacred.” It’s all “ministry.”
“Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (Colossians 3:17).
How does a busy mom keep her home-making on a miracle basis? Or, a high school student attending classes, or your work-out time at the gym, or your fifty hours of labor each week?
Henry Blackaby reminds us, God is always working around us and he wants to open our spiritual eyes so that we might see what he is doing. As he does this, he also invites us to join him in his “miracle work.”
So, how do you keep your ministry on a miracle basis this week?
Abide in Christ. “I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without me.” –John 15:5
Deny yourself and take up your cross daily. “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.” –Luke 9:23, 24
“Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God.” –Wm Carey
“Without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”
The Take-Away: God is working around you. Miracles are happening. Roll up your sleeves and join him.
