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.

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.
