what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony.”
– John
3:11

When is the last time God did
something in your work life that can only be explained as God? Was it
yesterday? Was it just last week? A month ago? A year ago? The answer to this
question may mean several things. If it has been some time since you saw God’s
activity in such a way that you know it was His hand, you may not be trusting
to a level that requires faith. You may not be risking enough for God to show
Himself. The converts in the early Church changed the world they lived in
because of what they saw and heard. It was the power of the gospel that changed
lives, not what they learned from mere teaching. This power drew people to
Christ. Things happened that could not be explained as anything other than the
activity of God. Is that the kind of faith you are experiencing in your life?
Many of us live a wholesome, moral life, but those we associate with do not see
this activity as anything that cannot also be achieved by themselves. That is
why many are not drawn to our lives. God’s power is not evident. The Lord has
been challenging me to trust Him at levels I have never trusted before. This
level of trust has placed me in a vulnerable position. However, the blessing of
this relationship is that I see the activity of God as never before, and those
close to me see it as well. It builds their faith and draws others to
investigate.

Sometimes the activity of God
comes in unusual ways. God often sets up scenes that appear to be negative on
the front end, but God has orchestrated these events for His glory.

  • Without Pharaoh’s pursuit of Israel at the Red Sea,
    there is no miraculous deliverance.
  • Without Lazarus’s death, there is no rising to
    life.
  • Without Goliath, there is no underdog story.
  • Without Peter stepping out of the boat, there
    is no miracle on the water.
  • Without Judas’ betrayal, there is no
    resurrection.

God wants to show Himself in ways you and I cannot
imagine. Let God demonstrate His power in your workplace today. Then, you will
see “all men drawn unto Me.”
