God Is Working In You!
“For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure” (Philippians 2:13).
God is the one at work in you now and He’ll never leave you at the mercy of circumstances. You’re not living by chance nor are you here by chance, for you’re not a child of chance. Don’t make light of this truth. Years ago, as I studied the Scriptures, I came to this portion of the Bible and the truth suddenly dawned on my spirit. I didn’t know whether to scream or laugh. Since I discovered this truth my life has continually moved upward. How could I fail with God at work in me? It’s absolutely impossible! This is reality! You need to be grounded in this truth. Recognize that God is at work in you irrespective of your successes or failures in the past. If you’ll only assent to God’s Word to you today, there’ll be a turn around in your situation for the best. Take time to meditate on God’s Word and not on the problems you’re going through and your attitude to life will immediately change, causing faith to well up from within you. It’s not too late to make the mark you set for yourself. God is working in your life today and He’ll meet you at the very point of your need or desire. Like David you’ll be able to say, “If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us: Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us: Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul: Then the proud waters had gone over our soul. Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth” (Psalm 124:2-6). Recognize that God is with and in you, your circumstances notwithstanding, and your life will be free of ups and downs.
