God’s View Of Our Problems-Part 4

May 6, 2014

 

We need to see our problems through the lens of God’s grace. You see, success for you and I on this earth depends upon God’s grace. Here is what the Apostle Paul tells us in Philippians 2:13“for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.” 

My friend, God sees everything and He lives inside of you for His will, His doing, and for His good pleasure. It is God who works in you. It is God’s will not your will. This is something very hard for us to grasp…even as Christians, born again, indwelt by the Spirit of God, we have it within us to want to have our own way. We want it to be our own will and not God’s will. The child of God needs to surrender to God’s will because He is Sovereign and His will is from the eternal perspective. Our desires are temporary and God’s desires are eternal. While God has allowed us to have our own free wills, our wills are ours to make them His.
