Philippians 2:13 “For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him.”
Everything about the Christian life was meant to begin and end depending on God. EVERYTHING! From the desires in your heart, the thoughts in your mind, the strength you live by… there isn’t any part that He isn’t meant to be in the center of. That’s why we are called in the Book of Ephesians “God’s masterpiece” – because we are the work of His hands. He puts in you His desires so that we want what He wants, that way you can just flow. That is the work of grace. Grace supplies you what you need so you don’t have to constantly struggle. And when you live flowing out from the God-Source in you, you find yourself empowered to do that which He wants you to do. He doesn’t leave you alone to figure it out or to find your strength to accomplish it, He supplies and He empowers. He is your loving and faithful Abba!
“You are the beginning and the ending of every part of my life. When I lean on and rely on You to live this life, I know I will not be disappointed. You are faithful and true to Your Word, and by Your grace, I will live every single day in Jesus Christ, my Hope of glory, amen!”
