“God is Working Behind the Scenes" - Friday, September 30, 2016 - submitted by Dianne Prince
The book of Genesis opens with a working God. God worked six days to create the heavens and the earth; a working God who created light, the sky, land, the seas, the grass, sun moon and start. Through God’s work, the fish, birds, cattle and every creeping thing of the earth was created. God is a working God, for on the sixth day, He created man. He breathed into man the breath of live. And as a result, man became a living soul.
Even now, God is at His job of sustaining all He created. He is on the job providing for his handiwork. God is on the job constantly, consistently, non-stop, twenty four hours a day. He is on the job, providing food, clothes, and shelter for you. And He is providing life, health, and strength for me.
God is always at work. He never slumbers or sleeps. He is busy right now being somebody’s way maker, somebody’s burden bearer, and somebody’s heavy load sharer. Right now, God is busy being somebody’s lawyer in a courtroom and somebody else’s doctor in a sick room. Right now, God is drying somebody’s tears and binding somebody’s broken heart.
Right now, God is busy delivering somebody’s child from their drug habit. He is busy breaking the stronghold of mental illness from somebody’s son or daughter. And God is busy putting somebody’s marriage back together again. Right now, God is busy being somebody’s Savior, being somebody’s protector being somebody’s deliverer, being somebody’s provided, being somebody’s peace and being somebody’s victory.
God is alive and well. He is still in the business of working on your behalf. He is still working to save the souls of your unsaved family members. He is always working to set you free from strongholds that are holding you captive. He is at work breaking that yoke of bondage from sickness, from sadness, from hopelessness, and from concern about your family member’s bad choices.
God’s job is to do for you what you can not do for yourself. His job is to control time, people, and events so when they come together, they will work out for your good. God is at work right now orchestrating time, setting people in motion and connecting events. With His controlling hand, time, people and events will all come together at the right moment. When God’s appointed time, His appointed people and His directed events collide, your prayers will be answered and your needs will be met.
Do not be anxious. Do not fret. Do not worry. Do not be concerned. Why? God is on His job seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day working on your behalf. Wait for Him to move. The Psalmist tells us, “ Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.” – Psalm 91:5-7
