If You Want

Philippians‬ ‭2:13‬ ‭- is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

Remember Who has created us. 
Remember His miraculous act of earth's creation. 
Then remember His miraculous act of man's creation...then woman.
Look at how He merged man and woman to produce a life. 
Remember when it all started back in the garden. 
Look back on how many years life has continued.
See how many have transpired between the garden and today.
See how you fit, miraculously, into His plan.
Imagine you knowing this God in your life today. 
It's a miracle, this life we have, both on earth and in Christ.

Were the events of original creation too long ago? Too far back to make a difference in today's shifting culture? Times change, so shouldn't we?

But look back at Who created us. He never changes. I the LORD never change. (Malachi 3:6) He never lies. God is not human that He should lie...(Numbers 23:19) He is truth. I am the way, the truth, and the life. (John 14:6) He is not so distant that we cannot see or know Him. He is but a call away. Consider and hear me, O LORD my God; enlighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death... (Psalm ‭13:3) His, me, all of life, all that exists...miracle after proof. 

And greater still, new life today, at any age. It's a new spiritual life...created by God. A miracle. It is He who works in you both to will and to do His good pleasure...if you want to, if you want Him to. If you want. 

It's each of our decisions to do His believe in this Creator God and all He has said, has shown, has revealed in 
His Word. Receive Christ in your heart and His Holy Spirit and His Word become miraculously alive and life-filling. Another miracle. When this life in Christ occurs all makes more sense...this thing about sharing Him, following, devotion to His Word, this hunger for more. If you want...Him, life, understanding. If you want. 

He wants to work in us both to will and do His good pleasure. It's always about Who He is, what He can do. If we want. 

2Corinthians‬ ‭5:17‬ ‭- Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
