God’s Power Working In Us
By F. B. Meyer
Oh, ponder this! The Father wrought perfectly in the yielded nature of Jesus, and the result was summed up in the cry, "This is My Beloved Son in whom I am well pleased." In some such manner it is possible to walk worthy of God unto all pleasing. It is possible to have this testimony, even in our mortal life, that we have pleased God. At the end of every day, as we lie down to sleep--we may hear the whisper of God’s voice saying, "Dear child, I am pleased with you." But you can only have it by allowing Him, in silence, in solitude, in obedience, to work in you to will and to do of His good pleasure.
Will you begin now? He may be working in you to confess to that fellow-Christian to whom you were unkind in your speech and act. Work it out! He may be working in you to give up that line of business about which you have been doubtful lately. Give it up! He may be working in you to be sweeter in your home, and gentler in your speech. Begin!
He may be working in you to alter your relations with some with whom you have dealings that are not as they should be. Alter them! This very day let God begin to speak, and work, and will, and then work out what He works in.
God will not work apart from you, but He wants to work through you. Let Him! Yield to Him, and let this be the day when you shall begin to live in the power of the Mighty Indwelling One.
