At Work

What’s at work in you? What do you believe? What are you willing to stake your life on, in an all in decision?

This morning, as I read my bible, I imagined myself in the times just after Jesus had died and arose again. These men and women, were so convinced of the truth set before them, that they wrote letters about Jesus and what occurred for all to see. They were willing to be put in prison. Families left them, thinking they were crazy. Romans (others too) tortured them at every turn they made. Things like beating them up, imprisoning them, even death by stoning or in the same manner as our Savior Jesus, crucified on a cross.

Even when you can’t completely understand, you just know that you know, that you know, in your knower. Paul states below that he was thanking God constantly, all the time, that when this city heard the word, they received it as complete truth, as the Word of God.

1 Thessalonians 2:13  And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God, which is at work in you believers.

When we do this, believe this, and know it is Truth, the Word is now at work in us, molding, changing, developing us.   If we align ourselves with truth, seeking it out, it will have it’s power made effective in us.


Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

It’s work is getting to the bottom of who we are, where we are. It determines our thoughts and our intentions and brings to light what we do well, where we need to grow, what we need to face, and how we see God, ourselves and others.

I’m willing Lord. I believe your Word is truth. I believe it is a light to my path and a lamp to my feet. I believe and am willing to open myself to what You have to say. I want to be like you. I want a clean heart. My desire is to love others the way you love me. I believe. Help me in my places of unbelief. I need you as much as the next breath I take. Amen
