Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure
Did you know that God is at work in you. He gives you the will or desire to do things. He gives you the do or ability to do things. All that He is working in you will cause you to do His will or His good pleasure.
This is one of the most exciting truths that I ever learned. When I was young I wanted to preach with all of my heart. I wanted God to use me. I wanted to be called to preach. I heard many people talk about not wanting to preach and how God forced them to preach. He called them against their will. They ran from God.
That wasnâ€™t my story. Then one day a friend explained to me that God was at work in me. He was giving me desires to do things that honored Him. He was giving me abilities to use for His honor and glory. It took a while for me to accept that and realize that it was God at work in me. He was putting that desire in me to serve Him.
Finally, I was so excited when I understood that my desires were something He was doing in me. I surrendered to preach. It was something that I wanted so bad.
Now I say to you. Surrender to God, seek Him. He is not hiding His will from you. He does not want to torture you. He has something super for you to do. He will gift you to do it and make you want it.
You do not have to fear that He would do something that would not be a blessing to you.
Think on this. He is giving you His desires for your life and will give you godly desires to do so. He will give you the ability.
It is wonderful to serve God this way. I have had a blast all my life. I love doing what He wants me to do. I want to do what He wants me to do.
Let God work in your life. He is at work in you!
