CityLight Pastor Commentary:
“For the land which you go to possess is not like the land of Egypt from which you have come, where you sowed your seed and watered it by foot, as a vegetable garden; but the land which you cross over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water from the rain of heaven, a land for which the Lord your God cares…” (Deut 11:10-12). There is a difference between laboring and co-laboring. You have a choice when it comes to your life’s work: do you want to work on your own, or do you want to work with God? When we work on our own, we are no different than everyone else around us, caught up in the ‘rat race.’ When we work with God, however, He promises to care for what we do. He promises to rain down resources from heaven so that everything to which we put our hand will be blessed. Is that an offer you can refuse?
Father, I want to partner with You! I know that when I yield to Your will, purpose and vision for my life, You will open up the windows of heaven and pour out for me such blessing that there will not be room enough to contain it. Bless my work, Lord!
