YOUR EVER AMBITIOUS GOD ;
(He’s More Desirous For You Than You Could Ever Be);

📖 TO THE BIBLE
Philippians 2:13 AMP C “…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.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
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 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.
One time, Jesus encountered a leper who said to Him, “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, but His willingness to. 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 say, and then run to the doctor for help. If it’s not God’s will to heal you, then why go to the hospital or take medications to get healed? Wouldn’t you be committing a sin by trying to get something that’s not God’s will for you to have?
But here’s the truth: God is 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. He loves you, and He’s more passionate and concerned about your success and prosperity than you could ever be. His answer always is, “Yes, I’m willing!”(Luke 5:13).

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.
