“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Philippians 2:13

TODAY’S WORD…

.

God is always at work in you

to make you willing and able to obey His own purpose.

– Philippians 2:13 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

The Holy Spirit is at work in us.

He wants to change us, to give us a better life, to make us holier.

We can, and should, rely on Him and His work in our life.

Jesus did not leave us on our own to work things out

– Jesus prayed to the Father

and He sent us the Holy Spirit as our Consoler, our Counselor, our Sanctifier

…always by our side.

.

God wants all to be saved.

As Christians we should press forward

and, in doing so, we are always being helped by grace,

which will lead us to implement God’s plans for us.

Yet grace does not overpower our freedom:

it is we who love, and we who act.

.

But God’s kindness towards us should not be an excuse for inaction on our part.

He is always desirous of entering our soul

but He will not do so if we refuse to listen to His voice;

if we bar our heart to Him.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Work in me, Lord, cleanse me, transform me, renew my mind

and fill me with the desire and the power to do what pleases You.
