Yesterday, I shared with you about my recent date with my eight-year-old. Sharing with you about it, I had tears come to my eyes multiple times. Holy Spirit used my little girl to work in my heart.
Whether or not Lily would use the same language for it, that day she was living out exactly what this verse describes. She was keeping her eyes open for God, watching for His works. She was alert, tuned into His stirrings on the inside of her. When her spirit picked up on God’s love for the hungry man outside the restaurant, she responded. She moved in tune with His movements that day.
In like kind, I then allowed God to work inside of me… in response to seeing Him work inside of her. I gave space and a listening heart to what He was saying to me through her. Her attentiveness to the work of God in her world had ripple effects. Now look! Those ripples are reaching even to you today.
Jesus said, “My Father is always working” (John 5:17, NLT) What beautiful, powerful truth! God is always doing something right there in front of us, if we will develop eyes to see it and a heart to respond to it. May the Father give us attentive hearts to the work of the Spirit in the spheres where He planted us. When He grants us eyes to see what He is doing, may He find us longing to enter in and partner with what He is doing.
When we do, my friend, you know what? The ripple effects just might change the world!
What has God been showing you about what He is doing in your world?
