Prophetically Aligning With God’s Activity Around You

Learn this insight from Moses, who accomplished God's exploits in his life.

I’ve been working through Experiencing God (again), and I find myself pondering “Reality One: God is Always at Work Around You.”

This is summed up in John 5:17: “Jesus answered them, ‘My Father is working still, and I am working.'”

The same God Christ knew as His Father is our heavenly Father today. God was working before He sent Christ to the world. He was working while Christ was in the world. And He continues to work through His Spirit today.

I love how Moses’ story ties into this. God heard the cries of the Israelites, and He desired their freedom, so God invited Moses to join Him.


It really didn’t matter what Moses thought the plan for his life was. What mattered most was God’s plan for Moses’ life.

Many Christians today have a preoccupation with knowing God’s will for our lives. I know I’ve struggled with this before, and I’m still struggling. There are some areas where it is very evident God has been at work (as with my family and with writing), but there are other areas where it appears He is silent.

It helps when I remember God’s focus has always been on getting His people to come into line with His will and with what is on His heart, so that we (I) can adjust our lives (my life) to Him, rather than having God design His plans around us (me).

And what is God’s plan? God is and always has been actively drawing people to Himself.

This also means I do not have to come up with plans for God or design ways to achieve kingdom goals. God is at work, and when I join Him in His activity, I am in perfect alignment.


When we seek God’s will, He reveals to us what He is doing. When we see His activity, we can then invest our time and energy in His work and not waste time and energy on our plans for God.

Think about the people in your life. Remember that God has been at work in each of their lives since their births (and before). Your role is not to do the Spirit’s work but to recognize where the Spirit is working in other’s lives and to join Him.

Where do you see God at work around you? How does He want you to join Him? {eoa}
