Keep Doing It

 He did not understand.  Hope died, making  life seem to be impossible in one of the most difficult circumstances he had ever faced.  He had to make the choice to trust God, continuing to do  what he knew God had called him to do. 

The Psalmist understood what it meant to trust God day in and day out:
The LORD will accomplish what concerns me;
         Your lovingkindness, O LORD, is everlasting;
Do not forsake the (works of Your hands. (See Psalm 138:8).

We are called to do what God has asked us to do, regardless of circumstances. Thus, we put our will in the will of God . . . our work in the work of God . . .  receiving his strength. 
We continue doing what we are called to do at all times  . . . surrendered . . . empowered . . . confident in the good work of God.

 The Apostle Paul said:   for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:13

The Christ follower lives strong with surrender to the work of God.
Pray:  Father, God, I surrender all to You, trusting that You will do the work in my life regardless of the circumstance.

Learning with you to KICK START the day . . . trusting God to do the work.
