“[Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.” (Phil 2:13 AMPC)
We know that GOD doesn’t want us to blindly follow religious rules and that He wants a living and loving relationship with us. As this relationship is all about choices, then He won’t force us to do good, so He doesn’t (won’t) ‘possess’ us as the evil around us wants to do and His Holy Spirit doesn’t nag or tut when we choose not to listen.
But if we ‘choose’ His path then like Jesus told us, everyone gets Blessed. “Don’t you believe that the Father is living in me and that I am living in the Father? Even my words are not my own but come from my Father, for he lives in me and performs his miracles of power through me.” (John 14:10 TPT)
Holy Spirit, forgive me for being so easily tempted and distracted. Help me to grow up and choose You always. ❤️
