It's Not About You

Philippians 2:13[Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while (effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.

This week as we talked a bit about motivation we looked at the scripture above. Take a good look at it again...I have given you the Amplified version this time...God is all the while doing things inside of you that are energizing and creating in you power and desire. But even better than that the power and desire will join forces so that you will be able to actually do things that bring him pleasure and satisfaction. It's not about you!

You have probably heard it said that where there is a will, there is a way. Perhaps that is true. If you will ignite desire in you to move forward you are in a better position to actually make your way. As you enjoy this last weekend in October, let God bring your desires to the surface and make a new way for you. Power and desire are both potent forces by themselves and when they are being energized by God, He is able to create something wonderful in you and through you.
