Philippians Again, our meditation is from Philippians Yesterday, we saw that God must be allowed to work within our hearts, if we are to walk in obedience. First, the Lord wants to effect our willingness to obey Him to fulfill "His good pleasure". So, He invites us into His word to learn of His will.
Then, His word goes to work within our hearts, convicting us of our need to obey it. All the while, He is nurturing in us a love for His word. Increasingly, we become willing to we desire to obey His word. After working in our hearts a willingness to obey Him, the Lord also wants to work in us until we are doing His will. Yes, willing and doing are two different matters. We easily forget this distinction.
We wrongly assume that once the willingness is present, the doing will inevitably follow. Jesus revealed the fallacy of this thinking in a well-known warning to His disciples. The spirit indeed is willing , but the flesh is weak " Matthew Even when our hearts are willing to obey, our flesh is inadequate to bring the willingness on to obedience. Thus, we are to recognize our need for prayer, that we might obey and not yield to temptation.
The word even teaches us how to cry out to God for the internal inclination that we need to actually obey His will. Dear gracious Lord, how wonderful that You want to work in me unto obedience. What a gift of Your grace that You desire comprehensive involvement in this vital process—from the willing to the doing.
Lord, draw me day by day to Your word. Work in me a growing willingness to obey You. Also, strengthen me to actually do Your will, in Jesus' name, Amen.
