Stop Fighting. Start Worshiping. Start Cooperating

I’m Dr. Bob and for just a Mentoring Minute, I would like to share something my pastor, Dr. Tom Peters said years ago, while I was pastoring in New York City. He sent me a recording of one of his sermons and his thoughts caused me a great deal of introspection. Dr. Peters said, “Religion worships God for what He did, while fighting what He is doing.That will get you thinking! It certainly did for me. As I thought back on my personal journey, I could not help giving God great praise for what He had done in my life. In the midst of God’s countless miracles and showers of grace, I realized the great joy of worshiping Him for who He is, as I willingly acknowledged what He had done. I determined to cooperate with anything and everything He wanted to do in, for and around me. Psalm 99:5 (NKJV), says, “Exalt the LORD our God, And worship at His footstool; He is holy.” Carefully consider this advice. It is not to be a question of whether you like or approve of what He is doing. Simply worship Him for who He is. Acknowledge what He has done. Then, cooperate with all He wants to do, with no questions asked or objections raised! Within your obedience, you will find more grace than you can possibly need… and the best thing about this is that His grace will have your name all over it. I’m Dr. Bob.
