God never takes a break. July is a summer month perfect for vacations. Some of us are getting ready to spend some leisure time at the lake, in the mountains, or even in a foreign country. We disconnect, leaving behind our work, hectic schedules, and the minutia of the daily grind. Hopefully, we return refreshed and ready for a new cycle of work, family, and routine.


Many know John 3:16 by heart. Its core message is that God loves humanity and came to save it. From the moment humanity chose sin in the Garden of Eden, God never had a day off from His “work.” Every day, the Creator of the universe “shows up for work” by healing, protecting, advising (via the Holy Spirit), admonishing, hoping (for wise choices), crying, and smiling.


Can you imagine the 9-to-5 grind in God’s schedule?” The sheer magnitude of God’s presence in our universe at all times and being of service to a fallen humanity is overwhelming—yet encouraging. He is there for us—we can count on Him. At all times.


Let us remember God in the midst of our vacation preparations. God never takes a day off, or a break. He is serving humanity 24 hours a day, every day, until His Son returns again.
