You're in a Partnership With God

You're in a Partnership With God

“We are labourers together with God.” 1Co 3:9

Did you hear the story about the little boy who was selling ten-cent pencils door-todoor to raise the money to build a thirty-million-dollar hospital in his community? One woman said to him, “Son, that’s a mighty big goal for just one little boy selling pencils for a dime.” With a big smile he replied, “Oh, I’m not doing it alone. See that boy across the street? He’s my partner; we’re doing it together.” Now if he had that kind of faith in a partner who was only his equal, shouldn’t you have confidence in a God whose power is unequaled, and whose partnership guarantees success? The Bible says: “We are labourers together with God.” When you truly believe those words you’ll begin to live like a “no limit” person. When Robert Morrison sailed as a missionary to China, the ship’s captain constantly criticized him and gave him a rough time. As Morrison left the ship, the captain said to him, “I suppose you think you’re going to make an impression on China.” Morrison replied, “No, but I believe God will!” There it is; when you’re in partnership with God your potential is unlimited. Here’s a prayer for you: “Disturb me, Lord, when my dreams come true only because I dreamed too small. Disturb me, when I arrive safely only because I sailed too close to the shore. Disturb me, when the things I’ve gained cause me to lose my thirst for more of You. Disturb me, when I’ve acquired success only to lose my desire for excellence. Disturb me, when I give up too soon and settle too far short of the goals You have set for my life.”
