His Good Purpose

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Philippians 2:13

For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

O-bservation:

The Great Apostle said to every Follower Of Jesus, “It’s God who is working His Will in our lives. The reason He is working His will in us is so He can fulfill ‘His Good Purpose’ through our lives.”

A-pplication:

The thing that troubles me more and more is my inability to try and accomplish good on my own. It was King David who said, “There is no one who does good … Not even one!” (Ps. 14:3). That’s important to note, because without the Lord in our lives we are hopelessly depraved.  Please know this AM that Jesus has a Will and Purpose for each and every one of us. However, until we fully yield to Jesus, He cannot fulfill “His Good Purpose” in us. And make no mistake, anything we try to accomplish outside of Him is filled with our own inadequate ability to totally see through and around the challenges we face. So before any of us decide to go out there on our own to try and make the world a better place today, stop and remember only Jesus can make it happen. He’d like to use us, if we’ll let Him fulfill “His Good Purpose” through us. I’m willing to let Him, will you join me?

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

My life is Your earthen jar to use to fulfill “Your Good Purpose” in and through me today. Amen
