Gut Check (for me at least)

 —  May 10, 2010 — 1 Comment

I was on a plane recently and was looking out the window at the clouds. I love doing that. It free’s my mind from so many things. Nobody can call my cell, I typically can’t check email, and I always request a window seat. I used to request the aisle, but have found that the window allows me to really think, pray, and process much better. Plus I don’t feel so confined – just a personal issue, I guess.

I’m often praying for God’s favor and blessing on our ministry. And I’m always, of course, seeking to be in tune with what He wants for us. Well, recently as I was enjoying the beauty of clouds and mountain tops, I was praying through ministry. And something hit me like a ton of bricks. And that is that I can’t expect God to bless what I’m doing.

Yeah, I said that.

All the sudden I realized that God doesn’t bless what I’m doing. He blesses what He’s doing. And, in fact, He always blesses what He’s doing. The question is: am I in line with what He’s doing?

Are you asking God to bless what you’re doing…..or are you in tune with what He’s doing? If it’s the latter, then no worries. God always blesses what He’s doing! We just have to be in line with that…

    Great thought. Thanks for sharing this. I to often wrongly assume that what I am doing in ministry is what God is doing. Obviously the Holy Spirit challenged you in order to challenge others with this same insight. Thanks bro.
