Desire and Power

September 09, 2019 — Thomas M. Hochmann

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. (Philippians 2:13 NLT)

It's not natural for us to want to do what pleases God. Thankfully, he gives us that desire. It's also not natural for us to have the ability to do what pleases God. Thankfully again, he gives us that power.

🙌 Praise God that we have any desire and power to do what pleases him, because Lord knows we couldn't generate any of that inside ourselves, by ourselves!

🙏 Pray to God that he will give us more desire, and more power, to do what pleases him!

May he equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen. (Hebrews 13:21 NLT)
