Reading the Word of God is so important in a believer’s life. It is there that we hear from God, learn about what God says (versus the lies that come from the enemy), and learn how to win spiritual battles from a place of victory. This morning, as I was studying the Word of God, I was brought to John 14:12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
This was not the first time I had read this verse, but today I obtained from the Holy Spirit the true meaning. I had previously thought how can we do anything greater than Christ? He is our Savior, the true Vine (John 15:1), God himself, but it was revealed to me that God will continue to do the work through us – He’s still a part of it!
It says in John 14:10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. The Father’s Will was done on earth through Christ, who came to earth in the flesh to save us. He now lives in those of us who have accepted Him as our Lord and Savior.
Though He is now in Heaven sitting at the right hand of the Father interceding for us (Romans 8:34), Christ is still working in the earth through us who believes and is willing to accept His Will for our lives. It’s not us alone who are able to accomplish greater things, but it is Him who works in us who enables us to do so through the power of the Holy Spirit.
We all have talents that we have been given, but sometimes they are pushed to the side with excuses. I don’t have the time today; I am tired; I’ll get to it tomorrow (and then tomorrow turns into the next day, and then the next day, and so on…). Please know that God will never ask us to do anything that He has not already made provisions for, or equipped us to accomplish. Therefore, I leave this message with you. My prayer is that it will bless you and tug at your heart to ask God what He has for you to do today (your assignment). Whatever it is, I’m certain that He will help you achieve it. Just have faith and believe.
God bless and enjoy your Sunday!
