It is Father’s love to give us a share in His works, His pleasure, His plans. John 5:20, “For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself is doing; and the Father will show Him greater works than these, so that you will marvel.”
Jesus is our Leader in every aspect of life. We live IN Him. He lives IN us. We behold Him and we become like Him. I want to be like Him who does the greater works which Father gave Him to do. Everyday, what I do and how I think, can reflect Father’s heart, plans and purposes. I’m not referring to being in the prayer room or at church. I’m talking about our everyday lives, where we work, produce, are occupied with tasks which are important and unimportant.
I want to find that place of worshipping God wherever I am and in whatever I am doing. I want to step into that place of living in His presence, consciously knowing that Jesus is with me. I want to live in the truth of this. He said, “I am with you and you are with Me. Abide in Me and you will bear much fruit.”
He wants to do this everywhere, anywhere, anytime. Wherever we are. Father invites His children to discover Him in the workplace, in the marketplace. He wants us to experience that He is with us, and that there are greater works to walk in, to manifest, in everyday life. He wants to reveal Himself as the Abundant Life God in the workplace. As well, He wants this at home, when we are washing the dishes or mowing the lawn—in the mundane—and in the outward public works that are seen in the workplace.
*Holy Spirit, teach me. Bring me into this place of reality. Break me out of my box, where I think Jesus is only in certain places. I want to live in full truth and experience Jesus everywhere that I am. I want to live in that place of holy creativity, of greater works. What are the greater works in everyday life? Amen.*
