Work Out What GOD Works IN | Oswald Chambers

Posted by on Jun 6, 2011 in the Thread | 0 comments

. . . work out your own salvation . . . for it is God who works in you . . . -Philippians 2:12-13 Your will agrees with God, but in your flesh there is a nature that renders you powerless to do what you know you ought to do. When the Lord initially comes in contact with our conscience, the first thing our conscience does is awaken our will, and our will always agrees with God. Yet you say, "But I don't know if my will is in agreement with God." Look to Jesus and you will find that your will and your conscience are in agreement with Him every time. What causes you to say "I will not obey" is something less deep and penetrating than your will. It is perversity or stubbornness, and they are never in agreement with God. The most profound thing in a person is his will, not sin. The will is the essential element in God's creation of human beings- sin is a perverse nature which entered into people. In someone who has been born again, the source of the will is Almighty God. ". . . for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure." With focused attention and great care, you have to "work out" what God "works in" you- not work to accomplish or earn "your own salvation," but work it out so you will exhibit the evidence of a life based with determined, unshakable faith on the complete and perfect redemption of the Lord. As you do this, you do not bring an opposing will up against God's will- God's will is your will. Your natural choices will be in accordance with God's will, and living this life will be as natural as breathing. Stubbornness is an unintelligent barrier, refusing enlightenment and blocking its flow. The only thing to do with this barrier of stubbornness is to blow it up with "dynamite," and the "dynamite" is obedience to the Holy Spirit. Do I believe that Almighty God is the Source of my will? God not only expects me to do His will, but He is in me to do it. Original post by the Tapestry See More Here: Church, Life, Business, Charity, and Link...

Seriously?!

Posted by on Jun 2, 2011 in the Thread | 0 comments

So, I worked all day to get air conditioning at the house and to get my truck finally inspected and emissions and registered. As I came home triumphant, two window air conditioners in hand, prepared for the LONG anniversary weekend, what happens? I walk in to Lori introducing me to the Montgomery County Health & Human Services Inspector. That's right! Surprise Inspection!!!!!!!!!!! Wow! And I thought nothing else could go wrong. Good news:1- Health Inspector passed us!2- Truck is done! Praise Jesus!3- Air is not working, but we do have air with the window units and Eric, our neighbor had a portable unit we are borrowing. We are now firmly again focused on this weekend. Get ready for some encouragement!!!!!! I am SO SERIOUS about your lives! God is getting ready to knock all your socks off! That's why I'm getting hammered in life. I got news for you… It's all worth it to me as long as I see Jesus come and blow all your doors off and see God exalted over all.
