Why We Should Rejoice In our Amazing Partnership With God, your partnership with God is unique because he shall provide all your needs and remove any obstacles in your way.
Sometimes we feel that God is not near us, listening to what we are asking for, or even intervening in this world of lies, chaos and destruction. Our partnership with God is life itself in full measure for all who know and trust Him. God also calls us into partnership with Him as personal extensions to fulfil His plans for world redemption.
Accepting that concept, let’s turn to the bible for further understanding of what God is doing and why there is a plan for the world, even if we disagree with what we think we know.
Ecclesiastes 4:9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Philippians 1:5 For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now.
1 Corinthians 3:7-9 So neither is he that planteth anything nor that watereth, but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his reward according to his labour. For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
2 Corinthians 6:1We then, as workers with him, also beseech you that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
John 15:4-5 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine; ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: without me ye can do nothing.
Joshua 1:9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
1 Corinthians 1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
2 Corinthians 6:14-17 Be ye not unequally yoked with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God; as God said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
Matthew 11:28-30 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavily laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Philippians 1:7 Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all because I have you in my heart; in as much as both, in my bonds, and the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace.
1 Peter 4:11 If any man speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
