Godliness Is A Partnership!

“In everything that he undertook in the service of God’s temple and in obedience to the law and the commands, he sought his God and worked wholeheartedly. And so he prospered.”  (2 Chronicles 31:21, NIV)

Hezekiah was a man of God and a godly king. He was also a talented businessman and builder. He was responsible for many noteworthy projects that are described in detail in the Old Testament. 2 Chronicles 31:21 teaches us King Hezekiah had two major attributes that contributed to his success and prosperity: He sought God, and he worked wholeheartedly to uphold God’s laws.

Godliness involves a partnership between God and us. We become godly when we have achieved the purpose for which God has made us. That purpose will never be discovered, nor will we ever achieve the things God has planned for us, if we do not seek Him with our whole heart.

So what does it mean to seek God? It means taking the time to sit before Him in solitude. It means studying His Word in order to get to know Him more intimately. It means developing an ear to hear His voice so that we know when to respond to Him. It means living our lives – every single day – for Him. God knows everything there is to know about each of us. He just wants us to get to know Him a little better.

Spend some time with God this Wednesday. You can be sure He will guide you toward those things that will bring success to every aspect of your life.

Enjoy your day, “Working for Christ”!
