Today’s Scripture: for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. Philippians 2:13 ESV
Do we really grasp how God is working in us now? In Philippians 2:6 in the ESV it states “who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,” and in the KJV it stated “thought it not robbery to be equal with God:”
We can not grasp this concept in the 150 words I have here and I am not sure we as a people or a church have grasped this since Jesus came to set the example for us.
Even though we may not grasp it yet; God works in us and His Spirit indwells in us.
I was also in Matthew 5 this morning and Jesus’ first beatitude is that if we are poor in spirit the kingdom of heaven is ours. Ours now, God in us now, can we grasp how we are to live as Jesus today?
Today’s Prayer: LORD God, help me to grasp Your presence in me. Your kingdom come Your will be done today here on earth as in Heaven now. LORD I want to live in You as You live in me today. I can not grasp this in my egotistical mind but Your Spirit within me is You. Amen
