God is Busy

There was an old college professor who lived on the top floor of a tall building on a college campus. This man was happy to live there, but often people would ask, “Don’t you get lonely living up there?” The professor would always answer, “No, my only neighbor is God. He is always busy, but He’s quiet.”
In our Bible Reading today, Jesus was busy healing and helping people. Jesus said, “My Father never stops working, and so I work too” (verse 17). God is always at work in our lives. Sometimes God works in dramatic ways — when He heals us from a sickness or when He suddenly answers our prayer in an amazing way.
But often God works quietly in our lives. He is always with us and pays attention to our prayers. God continues to encourage and strengthen us as we work every day.
Thank God today that He is always busy working in your life!
