Phil 2:12-13 [NET]
12 So then, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence but even more in my absence, continue working out your salvation with awe and reverence, 13 for the one bringing forth in you both the desire and the effort - for the sake of his good pleasure - is God.


A newborn baby has nothing to do with his birth. His birth was not a product of his will, but that of his parents. When the child is born, naturally, he would want to live and not die. That is the natural instinct, and his system does everything possible to keep him alive.

As the child grows older, he continues to have the will to live, but there are certain things that he would have to do if he wants to live a healthy life. For example, his parents would instruct him to be careful with what he puts in his mouth and not eat certain harmful substances, but whether this happens is ultimately his decision not theirs.

So it is with the spiritual life. Your salvation and spiritual birth is not a function of your will, works or any such thing. It is a product of God’s will and grace (John 1:13, Eph 2:8-9). You have been born again and brought into God’s kingdom. But to stay alive and healthy, you will have to continually yield to God’s will through obedience and faith.

Go into today knowing that the reason you can work out your salvation is because God has worked it into your spirit and eternal destiny. Your glorious destiny is a partnership between God and you. You are not alone.

Ask the Lord to help you always yield to His will and leading.
