“And we know that in all things GOD WORKS for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”- {Romans 8:28}.

God is working ABOVE US, the Heavens declaring His glory and the skies showing forth His handiwork {Read Psalm 19:1} including the clouds of all shades sizes and always on the move by His wind that comes from His treasury. “He causes the clouds to rise over the whole earth. He sends the lightning with the rain and releases the wind from His storehouses.”-{Psalm 135:7}.

I read that some clouds can move hundreds of miles a day depending on His wind and He who orchestrates the movement then to the location of His choosing and as He desires, opening the clouds and sprinkles or unleashes rain, hail, snow as He deems fit, measuring to the specific amount as He purposes. “Whatever the Lord pleases, He does, In heaven and on earth, in the seas and in all the ocean depths.”-{Psalm 135:6}.

God is working AROUND US in creation and peoples lives. -“He changes times and seasons; He removes kings and sets up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding;”-{Daniel 2:21}

God is working IN US as He promised, “He who began a good work IN YOU will complete it…” And “God is at work IN YOU to give you the desire and power to do what Pleases Him!”-{Read Phil 1:6; 2:13}.

Some people have heard it said, find out where God is working and go and join in. So, they look for a place and miss where they are and who is in their circumstances. It can be like someone standing on a beech and constantly looking at the horizon wishing that they could get to that place, and missing where they are and what is happening above them, around them and in them. They can waste their lives “wishing” their lives away. Always trying to get to another place and missing the place where the LORD presently has them!

If He wants you in a different place, He will circumstance your life, but if you keep looking for another place and think there you will be different, you won’t! For when you get there you will probably fall back into what you are doing now, as it is always a heart issue, what is in our heart comes out. If you are not sharing the Gospel where you are, you will not long term share the Gospel if you go to that wishful place. Be faithful in the place He has you and let Him orchestrate if He would have you in another place. The saying, ‘find out where God is working, and go join in,’ can be… to infer that He is not working where you are, or that He wants you somewhere else, another place, but be assured God is always working, Above us, Around us and also In us, by His Spirit through His Word.

God is working everywhere and it is not a place that we need to run to and fail to realize He is working where we are, in a person, and that person is… YOU… He is working in and through you! God continues, desires to do so! Trust Him in the place He has you! You can know Him in the place He has you. You can love Him and others in the place He has you. You can share the Gospel in the place He has you. You can encourage His People in the place He has you. Live now, occupied with Him and pre-occupied with His business in the place He has you!

Yes, we can go to a different place to share Him, help others but realize it is not the place that is special but God working in you and through you as you depend upon Him and align up with His Word to govern and guide, is wonderful and that is special, because you are special to Him, the cross and resurrection and new birth the evidence!

That the eternal God would not only know you but love you intensely, affectionately, powerfully, eternally is a wonderful gift of His mercy, grace and love! You may think nothing is going on, but be assured God is always working, above you, around you and in you, and this He does “…for His Pleasure!”- {Read Phil 2:13}.

LOOK UP and See His Work Above you in the Heavens, the sun moon, stars, clouds, the elements of rain, snow etc…LOOK AROUND and see His Creation, the streams, waters, rivers, lakes, oceans, seas, the flowers, the birds that fly in the expanse of the heavens, the birth of a child, the raising up and taking down of those in authority, kings and presidents, lords, and queens, dignitaries, life and death is in His hand. LOOK IN and see His Work in you how He has and is changing your desires, convictions, affections, loves and loyalty, pursuits and He who began a good work…” Where? “….IN YOU will complete it”-{Read Phil 1:6}.

Where is God Working?

God is Working Above you, Around you, within you!

Consider and celebrate and rest your weary heart and frayed nerves today in Him who is always in Control, always Consistent, always Present, always Working… Above you…Around you…In you!
