Our Daily Manna December 1, 2017: ODM devotional – Lord, Work Your Will In Me

Topic: Lord, Work Your Will In Me [Friday, December 1, 2017]

Basic Scriptures: Hebrew 6:1-11

Welcome the last month of this year! Today’s devotional write-up creates an atmosphere of joy/relief because it shows that your pursuit of holiness/pleasing God is not a STRUGGLE. It opens your eyes to know that God is NOT difficult to please and holiness is easy!

Hebrews 11: 6 is an existing foundation for this: “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Some delays to prayer answers this year so far, may make you to be working yourself to a point of frustration trying to be PERFECT so that you can please God for faster testimonies. You may have tried so hard and become so disappointed that you are about to give up. Well, maybe you should quit trying to perfect on your own – because none of us will ever be perfect through our own efforts.

God knows that you are human and He did not expect perfection from you through a struggle! He knows that if you were perfect, you would not even need a savior! So, the all-wise God loves you and accepts you as you are because He made you. And He is able to make you into what He desires you to be – if you Him and LLOW Him to work in you. In fact, Phil. 2:13 says: “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.” So, GOD WORKS IN YOU TO PERFECT YOU! Wow! What loving Daddy! Also Hebrew 13:21-22 declares: “God…make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well pleasing in His sight…”

Again a clear emphasis: It is God that works in you to make you perfect (see underlined above)! So, it not your struggle! He wants you to TRUST HIM to work in you! He hates to see you STRUGGLING to please Him! What does God desire from you? Not perfect performance, but perfect trust. Perfect trust is what brings perfect performance!

DECLARES THIS LOUD: “I trust You Lord. Thank you for loving me. I will rest in your love, instead of worrying about my performance and perfection. WORK YOUR WILL IN ME. Produce your perfection in me!”
