Colossians 1:29 (KJV) Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.
One thing is certain: the work of the Lord lays on us a lot of spiritual, physical, psychological and emotional demands. You can’t function in the Kingdom without a huge amount of spiritual, psychological, physical and emotional intelligence. The work of the Lord is about dealing with people and meeting their needs on all these levels of human interaction. It lays on us a huge demand of exertion and pushes us to our limit. We must all expect this. It is usual.
But then, while the above is the fact, the exciting truth is that we are divinely helped and built up in all of these spheres by Christ who is in us and is MIGHTILY WORKING in and through us. Our anchor scripture captures the reality of this. In Ephesians 3:16, Apostle Paul shows us how the Lord does this by strengthening us “with might by His Spirit in the inner man.”The might of God is not just only spiritual, it is also both physical, psychological and emotional.
Why will the Lord do this for us? Because He wants us to be effectual and profoundly fruitful. He wants us to be able ministers of the gospel, being His hand to reach out to a lost world with salvation, first spiritually and then at all other levels of human engagements. No wonder He says in 3 John 1:2 – “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” So, while we know the demand the work lays on us, we are assured of strength from Christ, as He supplies all our needs (spiritual, physical, psychological and emotional) according to His riches in glory.
Go into today with the understanding that you can do all things through Christ Jesus who strenghtens you.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank You for Your strength that is made perfect in me and that renews my strength always. I do not lack the spiritual, physical, psychological and emotional support I need to function in Your kingdom. And as You supply my needs, I meet the needs of people in my sphere of influence for You, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
