I have always been one who would rather work alone than with a group. Other people slow you down and making decisions becomes tough, right? As I got older my point of view was challenged. I realized God’s intention is for us to live life together. My job is not to get as much done as I can but to invest in others and do life together.
In Exodus Chapter 35, God gives clear instructions on the tabernacle. God doesn’t tell Moses to do it all. Instead He tells him to include everyone “who is of a willing heart” and goes on to describe the work that needs to be done on the tabernacle. The chapter ends by stating God has given individuals the talents needed. God has uniquely designed each of us with talents and abilities. He has a specific use for you and me.
In the church, God states it this way….from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love (Eph 4:16) . You serve a purpose. God’s purpose. Trust in that and be available to allow Him to write your story.
