The Kitchen Table Day 63
Today’s Reading: PS 31; 1 Sam 16:11-13; Phil 1:1-11
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6
When we finally decide to surrender our lives to God, we choose to believe and surrender to His will, His way, and His work in our lives. God’s work is a work of love and love is what He wants to work in us. It takes work to walk in love because love isn’t just a feeling, it’s an action. It’s something we feel and see from God and it’s something we not only feel but see in our lives as the Holy Spirit works in us. The Holy Spirit anoints us, like He did David, to live in and to live out of God’s love. The Psalmist says, “But I put my trust in You, O Lord; I say, You are my God.: That’s love for God and in God. That’s why believers live in faith, not fear and the Holy Spirit will only perfect that work as we surrender to His love.
