Sometimes God is working behind my back

The earth does it all without his help: first a green stem of grass, then a bud, then the ripened grain. - Mark 4 v 28

Jesus spent a lot of time trying to explain to the disciples what His Kingdom was like. He needed to and still needs to for us. We find it difficult to understand it, it goes against the grain. Its values are strange.

Service gives you significance.
Selflessness gives you reward.

Humility gives you power.

The list goes on.

But the thing that we find the hardest is that entrance, acceptance and growth in His Kingdom is not about what we do but about what he does. Like the farmer in Jesus story in Mark 4 who even forgets about the seed he has sown but finds it growing. He doesn't know why or even how but it grows.

I am so thankful that even when I am careless & forget about God and what he has told me, He never forgets about me and is constantly working to bring about fruit in my life.

Thank you God for sometimes working behind my back and I am totally unaware.
