JESUS SAYS “I WILL”,
(He’s More Ambitious For You Than You Can Be),
TO THE BIBLE Philippians 2:13,
“For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.”
It often amazes me how some people are quick to say they don’t know God’s will while at the same time they demonstrate a desire for good things. It’s very clear from Philippians 2:13 that the desire in you for good things is a reflection of God’s desire and His will for you to have a good life. That shouldn’t be a surprise to you because no good father will watch his children suffer through life.
Check out the Lord Jesus’ encounter with a leper in Luke 5:12-13. The leper said to Jesus, “…Lord, if you are willing, You can make me clean” (Luke 5:12). Notice that he didn’t question Jesus’ power or ability to heal him, just His willingness to heal him. In other words, he knew Jesus could, but didn’t know if He would. That’s the mindset of many today. “I don’t know if it’s God’s will to heal me,” they’ll say, and then run to the doctor for help. If it’s not God’s will to heal, one shouldn’t go to the doctor to get healed, otherwise, he or she would be committing sin since they’d be trying to get something that’s not God’s will for them to have, isn’t it?
Realize that He’s more willing and ambitious to help you than you could ever be willing to receive His help. You couldn’t be better than God in taking care of your need. God loves you, and He’s more passionate and concerned about your success and prosperity in life than you could ever be.
17 Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath,
3 John 1:2
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for your willingness to provide for me more than I can ever dream or imagine. As I walk in the knowledge of your Word today, I experience success, prosperity and divine health, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
