For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
Philippians 2:13 KJV
This is such a revelation to me. There are countless times that I’ve been taking credit for the little efforts I make to strengthen my walk with God, saying things like at least I’m trying. As a result I would end up feeling tired and lonely, sometimes eventually giving up. Thinking I’m the only one that’s trying to make our relationship work and it’s obvious that it takes two to relate.
Even the littlest of desire that I have to do something to please God, comes from God himself… I’m totally mind blown…. Wow…. I’m not alone God is walking with me step by step, egging me on. He’s with me people! Some of you may say, wait is it only now she’s realizing this? Leave me alone man, 🙈 let me revel in the revelation that my daddy has never left me. He has held my hand all the way.
This scripture may seem so insignificant to some but it has so much weight. Let this encourage your heart, may your eyes be opened to see that God is not far from you. May this scripture cause your relationship with God to deepen, widen, heighten. If you’re struggling in your walk with God but in your heart you’re saying ABBA (Father) I really want to please you. The fact that you even have the desire to honour God, that is God working in you. That’s one way to know that Your heavenly Father is close to you. Somebody shout Hallelujah! I literally feel like screaming. God is awesome friends!
God is with us always! One more time for the people in the back. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
Today I thank God for this revelation!
