Pursue God’s Plan for You
My precious friend, today’s promise is taken from Philippians 2:13. It says “for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill His good purpose.” Yes, according to this verse, God is working in you in such a way that you will have a desire according to His good purpose and will also have the power to fulfill things according to His good purpose. So be of good cheer! God is in control.
When can the Lord work in you? You must first realise that God has a good purpose for your life. Things may have gone wrong in your life. Bad things may be happening around you and, in every place, maybe you have had to go through shame. Also, you may have had to go through several losses in your life. Do you know why God allows it? So that you will become empty. The faith in your strength will be gone. My friend, that’s how God begins to work in your life. God makes you empty first so that He can fill you with Himself. So that His good purpose will be fulfilled in your life and through your life. Only those who do the will of God will live forever. But those who do their will according to their strength will only last for some time since man and his plans can never be everlasting. But God is everlasting.
Precious Heavenly Father, thank You for Your wonderful promise. Lord, I believe that You have a good purpose for my life. Even now, Lord, I come before Your cross and pray that You will empty me. Empty me completely of myself and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Lord, I pray that You will begin to work in me for You are the Author and the Finisher of my faith. It is no longer I but Christ who lives in me. Lord, resurrect me from every situation that is troubling me. Let Your good purpose for my life be fulfilled from today and let Your name alone be glorified in and through me. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
