Thought for the Day: I read these words, and though Paul said that God is able to do more than any of us can imagine, I want to say that I can imagine a lot. Though for Paul, in a time of personal risk, these words suggested a great deal of trust. It is one thing to speak of a leap of faith, yet Paul was referencing God’s creative capacity to put together people and gifts and wisdom in such a way as to create something that no one person could have created. I believe this is where the Spirit is often at work — piecing together the right mix for the moment. Of course, as one who believes that every person has free will and thus can decline the Spirit’s invitation, this process can be slowed or hindered in the moment. This is where God’s patience and persistence is so important.
Prayer: Lead me! Guide me! Allow me, O Lord, to serve you wherever you believe I can be of the greatest help. Amen.
