[Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.


You spend your life trying to “work” your own good pleasure, while it is God’s good pleasure that you should be working for!

When you work for God’s good pleasure, your focus is not on doing what pleases you, but on doing what pleases Him.  This kind of pleasure is fully satisfying and fulfilling, and will last for eternity, and not just for a brief moment.

He will bring true meaning to your life, and the necessary growth and change that you need will happen, as you yield your life to Him.

Allow Him to “work” in you, and through you. Not only for your blessing, but also for the blessing of all of those around you!

While He is working in you, He is doing a good work, and you are changing.

It is God’s good pleasure to work His will in your life.  When God is in control, life is blessed! All the pressure leaves, and the heavy weight lifts!

Give your life wholly to the Lord. Let Him work in you and through you. Don’t be afraid, because He is the great Master-Plan Master.
