“FOR GOD IS WORKING IN YOU, GIVING YOU THE DESIRE AND THE POWER TO DO WHAT PLEASES HIM
(PHILIPPIANS 2: 13)
The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness but it’s patient towards you not wishing that any should perish but that all should reach repentance. God in his passionate desire to restore the relationship with all His children hence has patient towards us. It is His desire to see us grow in all holiness and godliness that He waits to bring about restoration of all things to him with the coming of the new heavens and earth. Lets open our hearts today to become more like our heavenly Father and allow Him to create in us a heart worthy of Him who has so patiently loved us.
Because God loves us, He does not desire for us to remain as we were or as we are. His plan is to do such work in us that we live on this earth as Jesus did. But he is entirely patient with our sanctification.
Spend time praying discovering the patient heart of your heavenly Father. Spend time allowing His love to draw you into the process of sanctification and allow the Holy Spirit to do a mighty work in you today bringing about holiness and godliness were it seemed only sin and worldliness could dwell.
Allow Him to reveal to you places in your life that you do not align with your new nature. Ask him to take you to the source of your sin and correct your understanding so that you might walk in His holiness today. Allow your desire to live like Jesus be stirred up in his presence. Do not work in your own strength but the power and love of the spirit who dwells within you.
