#DailyDevotion: Blessed Hands: The Work Ethic of a Believer

Ephesians 2:8 declares, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9) NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast."

Beloved, I woke up with the word “work” ringing in my spirit.


It is given, even to the new creation being in Christ, to work. Miracles in their nature as a gift of the spirit are, “The working of miracles,” so miracles are not easy outlets; they belong to those that work. When we read the scriptures, it is also critical that we do not become rigid in our view of a dynamic God.

The Bible teaches us of God’s omnipresence; that being, present everywhere at once. Therefore when we go to service and we say God moved, technically it is wrong because we move it God, and the man of God moves in God, as there is never a good of God anywhere…

Now the same Bible tells us in the above that salvation is not of works, as a result, many Christians live how they please and use grace as an excuse to lead sinful lives. We often quote the scripture that serves our needs at a particular point in time, but Philippians 2:12 reads,

“Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, WORK out your own SALVATION with fear and trembling.”

This is in the new testament and the Apostle is instructing that the believer need to work out their salvation.

It is, therefore, my prayer for you today, may you catch the work ethic that God has released in this season, that carries a guarantee of success.
