When we say that someone is always at work, it means that the person is always at work at all times and on all occasions. On all occasions includes both those times we think He is working and not working.
Therefore, God is always at work even when we do not see what He is doing. We cannot limit everything that God does for us only with our physical eyes. What God does for us is also beyond the physical.
There are times in life when we feel that God is very far from us. Some difficulties may besiege us, and we may feel God is already tired of our welfare.
In these moments, we feel like giving up on Him. There are also a few moments we have derailed, and we think He is very angry or He has given up, on us.
When the Jews accused Jesus of working on the Sabbath day in John 5, Jesus tells them that He has come only to work. He says in John 5:17, that the Father is always working, and so is He.
Therefore, He does not get tired of doing the Father’s will. The implication is that if God is always working, then it means that He does not give up on us.
Beloved, everything about God is never-ending. God is infinite, supernatural, limitless, and He is always at work. Our God we know can never and will never get tired of bringing people to Himself. He is always on the move to save His children.
God is always at work to save, to cause us to repent, to bless us with His grace, heal us and forgive us. But when problems come, we think He keeps quiet. God is always at work even in those seeming silent times. No one knows what He is doing in those silent moments.
God may be using those times to develop you, teach, direct, guide and inspire you. for during our trying moments are always the times we learn a lot of lessons.
The Reason He came.
In the gospel, When Simon and his companions set out in search of Jesus, and find him, they tell Jesus :
“Everybody is looking for you”.
Jesus answers them “Let us go elsewhere, to the neighbouring country towns, so that I can preach there too because that is why I came”.
Jesus says that this is the reason He came. He has come to work and save lives.
Jesus does not give up on us even when we have given up on ourselves. He does not give up on bringing us always close to God.
Jesus is not tired of healing us and saving us. He is always at work. Therefore, do not think that God is tired of you. God is always at work.
Even when He sends challenges, He may be gradually working on you. Not all challenges are bad in themselves.
God is Always at Work in saving Lives.
After Jesus preached at the synagogue, He visited Simon and Andrew with James and John. Not tired, He continues His work and heals Simon’s mother-in-law.
In the evening of that day, they brought to Him all who are sick and possessed, He did not tell them to wait or postpone their healing, He did not excuse Himself for being tired, rather He goes further to heal their various ailments and delivered all those who are possessed.
Not minding the tediousness of the work the previous day, Jesus still rises early in the morning and goes to a lonely place to pray and communicate with the Father.
When the apostles later found Him, He still proceeds with them into the villages, preaching, teaching and driving out demons. What an indefatigable God? He never gets tired in His work of saving grace.
He is Always there for Us.
Let us always bear in mind that God is always at work. When people lose faith in you and think you have no future, know that God is always at work. The table always turns.
When many hope and think you will suffer and die miserably, always bear in mind that God knows how to save us. He does not get weary.
Also, When you feel the worst has happened and God has forgotten you, He may still show up when you least expect. He does not give up on us.
When your prayers seem unanswered, always know that God is always at work. Some prayers were answered immediately, some after one week, some takes months, while some may take a year or years. Do not give up on God.
He does not give up on us. We are the ones who easily lose hope and give up on God. A father will always be there for His children.
A father can deny himself, only to make sure that his children do not lack. In the same way, God is always there for us in good and in bad times.
At that point when you think all hope is lost, know that He has not given up on you yet. The future can be brighter.
At that moment, when you feel like cursing Him, do not be surprised He is already working something in your favour.
When you feel like God must punish you because of what you did in the past, do not be surprised He is still working on you to make you perfect.
Then, If God can not and will not give up on us, giving up on Him should never be an option for us then.
May God bless us dearest, and give us the strength to hold on to Him despite whatever we go through Amen.
