DAY 9 WEDNESDAY: JUNE 2021

GOD IS AT WORK IN YOUR LIFE!

Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13).

A Christian should take note of the fact that God is at work in his life. Therefore, it is his duty to allow Him to perfect His work in his life. The Bible says in the opening text that therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God is at work in his life. Hence, he is absolutely expected to allow God to indeed perfect His work in his life forever.

The Holy Spirit is in you perfecting the work of God in your life. That is why the Holy Spirit is our great Teacher, Comforter and Helper in life. Without Him, we can do nothing in life. That is why the Bible says in Acts 1:8, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Therefore, a life that is devoid of the Holy Spirit becomes redundant and ineffective by nature. It is of course the Holy Spirit that empowers the believer to become a great witness to the gospel message of Jesus Christ in life. God is indeed and absolutely at work in a Christian’s life forever.

The Spirit of God is always there to guide and direct a Christian in life. When you yield yourself to the Holy Spirit, you can never make a mistake because He is working in and out of you perfecting the work of God in your life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Ezekiel 2:2, “Then the Spirit entered me when He spoke to me, and set me on my feet; and I heard Him who spoke to me.” In fact, whoever the Holy Spirit set on his feet and established can never falter no matter the challenges in life. It is indeed the Holy Spirit that perfects and empowers the life of a Christian for success and breakthroughs in life. However, every Christian is expected to give room for the Holy Spirit to perfect God’s work in his life. A life that is lived by yielding to God’s working is absolutely a life that often becomes a great blessing to his generation in life forever.

Daily Tip: A Christian is absolutely expected to surrender his life totally to God and allow the Holy Spirit to perfect His work in his life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Then the Spirit said to Philip, “Go near and overtake this chariot (Acts 8:29).
