For this I toil, struggling with all His energy that He powerfully works within me.” Col 1:29 ESV
“It has become my inspiration and passion in ministry to labor with a tireless intensity, with His power flowing through me, to present to every believer the revelation of being His perfect one in Jesus Christ.” TPT
“For this I labor (unto weariness) striving with all the superhuman energy which He so mightily enkindles and works within me.” AMP
Doesn’t the Apostle Paul clear up something here? As we progress in maturity and intimacy with Jesus we actually learn to rest and trust in Him yet somehow our work WITH Him may increase as He opens new doors of opportunity. No matter our age, He will do in and with us as HE desires.
It is no surprise then, that we are able to “toil”, to “labor with a tireless intensity.” It’s HIS energy flowing through us. We may still get weary in the natural but He just fills us up again. One of the wonderful ways this happens is simply to worship Him. In the middle of your day, just pause and lift up hands of appreciation and wonder. Think and speak Jesus over yourself and every difficult person or situation that comes before you! See HIS energy and love flow up and out of you. Be refreshed, renewed and invigorated!
Where would ANY of us be without Him!!
