Is It You or God at Work?
“For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13
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 the desire and 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?
