When God is your partner in ministry…

Working together with him, then, we appeal to you not to receive the grace of God in vain. (2 Corinthians 6:1)

For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building. (1 Corinthians 3:9)

And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them (Mark 16:20)

So if there is any encouragement in Christ…any participation in the Spirit…complete my joy. (Philippians 2:1-2)

And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age. (Matthew 28:20)

If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. (John 12:26)

And the Lord said to Paul one night in a vision, “Do not be afraid, but go on speaking and do not be silent, for I am with you, and no one will attack you to harm you, for I have many in this city who are my people.” Acts 18:9-10

For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me. (Col. 1:29)

What an encouragement to remember. God works with us as we work for him. This reminds of William Carey’s memorable saying: “Expect great things from God; attempt great things for God.”

If God be for us, who can be against us?
