BIBLE MEDITATION: ?For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.? Philippians 2:13
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: I can?t do anything like Jesus, can you? At least not in my strength. But, aren?t you glad that the Example of our obedience is also the Enabler of our obedience? God is responsible for not only the desire, but also the doing. The word ?worketh? in Philippians 2:13 is the word from which we get our English word ¿energy.? God energizes us to do His will. It is like the power steering in your automobile. The power steering is there to work for you, but it waits on you to turn the wheel. The moment you turn the wheel, you will notice the wonderful power. The moment you decide to serve God, His power takes over. God is waiting on you right now to serve Him. What are you waiting for?
ACTION POINT: Today, I challenge you to attempt something so great for God that it is doomed to failure without God in it. Attempt the impossible. Reach for the unreachable. Dream the improbable.
