The work that I am referring to is not your nine to five job where you work Monday through Friday. I am referring to "working God's way!" In Genesis 1:3-31, the scripture reveals that God re-created the heavens, the earth, and the host of them by speaking. Clearly, God "saying" or "speaking" is the work that He performed to make and create everything!
When He began to re-create the conditions were horrible. Genesis 1:2 says, "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep." Let me break this down for you. The place was in ruin and full of confusion. It was filled with darkness and emptiness (meaning containing nothing.) God did not allow what He saw to impact Him negatively. Instead, He decided to change what He saw. He envisioned a different world, one depicting His heart and desires, and He went to work! He continued to work despite what surrounded Him. WOW! What a powerful example for you and me to follow.
Believers are to mimic their Heavenly Father. Ephesians 5:1 says, "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;" God's design is that we change the adverse conditions of our lives by speaking forth His anointed Word. Therefore, like your Heavenly Father, despite everything arrayed against you, whether in a home filled with confusion, or in a marriage on the brink of ruin, amid financial lack, or, should you be depressed and your body is full of pain, speak forth God's Living Word! You still have a voice! Use it to create and re-create what you want to see in your life. What you see now is not the end of your story!
As you "GO TO WORK" you are painting a beautiful picture on the canvass of your new life, and you can rest assured that God will back up His Word with supernatural manifestations! He is faithful, and His Word is sure! Never allow a setback to become a destination! Work the Word!
Father, in the name of Jesus, I ask you to help me focus on the truths found in your Word instead of what I see and feel. I trust you, and the power housed in your Word to help me create a beautiful future. Give me the resolve to speak forth your Word boldly and consistently until the scenery of my life has changed. I give praise and thanksgiving in advance in the name of Jesus, Amen!
