Php 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
Php 2:14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
Php 2:15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
Who is working in us? ...What is He doing in and through us?...Why is He working in us?
It is God that is doing HIS WILL because of HIS good pleasure...so think about that...God desires to transform us and if He is doing the work He will use all
of our day to day activities and conflicts to do so. Which means, even when we mess up, God is training us to exercise HIS WILL and respond as He would
like us to! Rom 8:28 God is working ALL things out...do we believe this? If we do, we not only love God for taking our messy broken selfs and fixing us but
we now can see with spiritual eyes and see He is doing that with everyone else. As we see this we can claim...we wrestle not with flesh and blood...so if
we struggle with the tormentors of jealousy, anger, bitterness, inferiority etc...it truly is God working out HIs good pleasure.He wants to change us, he wants
us to love and encourage others, even when they cant see the truth....father forgive them they know not what they do! It shows us not to hold someone
else at such a high standard without giving them the benefit of the doubt when we ourselves are in desperate need of God's grace and molding, amen!!!
We all are capable of doing it and therefore should understand when it is done to us...to be compassionate and loving.
that is why He says, do all things without murmings and complaining...love one another...so we are blameless and harmless children of God without rebuke
in this perverse world...we are the ones that ought to shine!
May we all desire God's transforming grace upon us, as we are on the front lines in training with life, so that we can take accountability for ourselves
not complain and shine for Jesus!
YOU ARE POSITIONED BY GOD AND HIGHLY FAVORED!!!!
LET OUR LIGHTS SO SHINE BEFORE MEN THAT THEY MAY SEE OUR GOOD WORKS AND GLORIFY OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN!
Who might you love on today that is unloveable...love is unconditional...dont look for anything back...it becomes contagious
