“For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for his good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13 (NKJ)
The Amplified Version of the book of Philippians 2:13 says: “For it is God who is eventually at work in you, energizing and creating in you power and desire both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight” Therefore, let Him do the work. Rest and let Him do the work. He that has begun the good works will complete it.
Ephesians 5:25-26 declares: “Husbands love your wives even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of the water by the word”. For those of you trying to straighten every other person, stop straightening them, the word will straighten them. Verse 27 says: “That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having a spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.” He does the presentation. He knows when to work for you and how to work for you. He knows where the mistakes are. He wants to present you to Himself a glorious church, not having spots or wrinkle but that you should be holy and without blemish. He knows how to make you holy. Take your hands off the steering and let God do the job.
1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 says: “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is He that calleth you, who will do it.”
God is the one at work in you! Let go and let Him do His work.
