Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Corinthians 3:9(KJV); For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
We are labourers with God.
Even as we build the kingdom and minister the gospel to the world, He labours in us; supplying wisdom, sufficiency and strength.
I have known ministers and servants of God who have fainted in their service to God. Why? They did not understand that they are labourers together with God.
The ministry has become too much of a burden for others. Some have been drained of their resources so much that one may be tempted to think that they love the work of the gospel more than God Himself does or that they love people more than God loves them.
As a co-labourer with God, what does not defeat God cannot defeat you. What does not fail Him cannot fail you. What does not diminish Him cannot diminish you.
This is the attitude you must embrace in your service to God. Ministry cannot be difficult for a man who understands this truth about their service to God.
This is the mind with which we do great exploits for the kingdom; the mind with which we withstand persecution; we labour with God.

As a co-labourer with God, what does not defeat Him cannot defeat you. What does not fail Him cannot fail you. What does not diminish Him cannot diminish you.
PRAYER: My Loving Father, I thank you for this Word. Thank you because you labour in me and through me mightily. I have sufficiency because you do exceedingly, abundantly above what I can hope or ever expect. I am revived in my service to you because I labour with you. I am strengthened in my service to you because I labour with you.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
