“…he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 1:6, NIV
Sometimes, when God is doing a work in our lives, things can get a little uncomfortable. We may encounter people who are hard to get along with or experience circumstances that seem beyond our control. When this happens, instead of getting upset or complaining, why don’t you pause and say, “Lord, thank You for doing a work in me.”
God is more interested in changing you than He is in changing your circumstances. If you choose to stay sour because you’re not getting your way, or if you get discouraged because things aren’t happening on your own timetable, that’s going to keep you stuck.
If you want to see change, if you want to see God open up new doors, the key is to bloom right where you’re planted. You can’t wait until everything gets better before you decide to have a good attitude. You have to be the best that you can be right where you are. When you bloom where you’re planted, you’re allowing God to work in you, and He will be faithful to complete what He’s started in you!
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
“Father, thank You for doing a work in me. I choose to align myself with Your plan by blooming where I’m planted. Help me, by Your Spirit, to be an example of Your love and life everywhere I go in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
