Yoked for Greater Works

Today, I want to take one more giant step in processing this wonderful offer.

Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. - Matthew 11:28-29

As I said yesterday any work God has for us, He will do the heavy lifting, and bear all the stress. We, in peace, abide in and follow walk beside (yoked to) Jesus while the Father gives us the plan, the power, and the peace to carry out what is going on.

This may explain the oft misunderstood comment from Jesus in John 14:

Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. - John 14:12

The greater works that we do, we do not do because of some crazy new abilities that we have. We are able to do these awesome, wonderful, “finger of God” type works, because we are connected to the Father through Jesus and He is doing the work, as He did for Jesus.

And the WHO behind the HE is – well – WOW – the One who created the heavens and the Earth. The One who breathed breath into the dust and up stood a living, breathing, thinking Adam. The One who sent His only Son to reconcile Adam’s lost kids to their Creator, and Father.

Lord, I am willing to do greater works as long as you are the One doing the doing.

Thanks Father!
