You Letting Him Work?
Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
If you had someone show up at your house to mow your yard you might think that sounds like a blessing and would be more than willing to let them do it. However, if it wasn’t done exactly the way you want then you’d be hesitant to allow them to do it again. We all have certain things in our lives we want done a certain way. That also means we all have certain ways we like to do things. It can even be just simple things in our lives that we like done a certain way or in a certain order. We work on those things and do things a certain way because we think that’s what’s best. Why then do you think the Lord wants to work on us? God knows what’s best for us. God knows what our future looks like. We may have our own plans, but God knows. God knows what we need in our life in order to get through our future. He knows what we need to be equipped with in order to get through the storm that we have no idea is coming. However, how much work do we allow Him to do on us? How much do we allow God to have control in our lives? We want to constantly be in control of everything so much that we find it difficult to just allow God to do a work in our lives. We hear the little kids sing that song that says God’s still working on me. Can we say the same thing still? Do we still allow God to work on us or do we think we have it all figured out and can manage on our own?
