“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” 2 Corinthians 13:14
Do you have a goal that you are working towards? Or, maybe you have a dream that’s been in your heart for years where you see yourself becoming something, or doing something or going somewhere. Perhaps you are believing and praying for a specific change to happen in your life and have been patiently waiting on God?
Whether it’s a goal, a dream, or a change, one thing is for certain, we must be unified within to see results.
That’s a strong statement… yes, it is, but it is true. You see, as much as possible, all of us has to be involved in moving forward – our souls, spirits and body have to be united in agreement for what we are believing for and going after or we will not get very far. Every part of us is connected and we need each part working together in harmony to advance in life.
The more agreement we have on the inside, the more results we will see on the outside.
At times in my own life, I have fallen into the trap of dealing with personal disappointment by blaming others, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. And, if it’s not a person, then we blame the situation, the system or even the environment.
Yes, all these factors have a part to play in our life’s story, but we are to take personal responsibility to live the life we were born to live. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!
And so, I pray this prayer over us today: “May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with [us] all.”
God is unified in all that He does and as His children we are empowered and equipped to be unified as well. May we continue to work on our internal harmony and through the power of the Holy Spirit, rise to a new level of unity so that we can become all that we were born to be! Let there be “unity in me”.
