How amazing this ! Often times , we think we’re the ones chasing after God, pushing ourselves on Him that He may accept us and accept all that we do to please Him; no! He’s responsible for that urge or desire in you to walk in His light, to please Him and bring Him glory. All the wonderful things you want to do for Him are the result of the inspiration and work of the Holy Spirit in your life.
All the time you had the thought to do something that’s good for God ,and good for people, it wasn’t your mind or flesh ; it was God working in you, both to will and to do of His good pleasure. He causes His power to work in you, and His word to stir up faith in you to do that which pleases Him and blesses those around you. Now you can understand why its so easy for many of us to walk in love , and be excited about serving the Lord; always willing to help , willing to do good things. We found out its the Lord that’s behind it.
He’s the one stirring your spirit inspiring you to want to do things God’s way.
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for making me an effulgence of your glory.
