“My Food is To Do the Will of Him Who Sent Me and To Finish His Work”

Jesus in John 4:34

Jesus is talking to the Samaritan woman at the well and explains to her what his food is–what he lives off of–God’s work and God’s will.

This is a great mantra.  To do God’s will and finish what God started; His work for you.

It’s discovering this that’s the hard part.  For each of us has a different commission.

So I pray:

What is your will for me, God, and what is the work I need to finish?

And added:  Make it clear.  Hit me with it as hard as you must. Let me get it without a doubt.

Amen.

Creation Part 2: John 14

John 14:10-14  Jesus is speaking to Philip and says, “Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me?  The words I say to you are not just my own.  Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing the work.  Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves.  I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing.  He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father….You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”

John 20:22  “He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”

Translation:  Because we have Jesus (those who have accepted Him into our hearts) the Holy Spirit now dwells within us.  Jesus explains whoever has faith in Him will do what He has been doing and will do even greater things.

Philippians 4:13 “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”

I believe God can do anything through me.  My mind, my hands, my body are His.  I create with such.  He has granted me the gift of creation because He dwells within me.  I create on a human level, in an Earthly world.  God creates both in Heaven and on Earth.  I create what God has allowed me to create; what He has ordained to fulfill His purposes for me here on Earth.
