The Kitchen Table Devotions
Philippians 2 Day 6
So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure
Work it out! Every single one of us must eventually work it out. But don’t put on your work boots, put on your sandals. This life isn’t about forcing something, it’s about following someone. The work of working it out is found in the will and the want to follow. The Holy Spirit lives in us and with us; we just need to learn to follow Him. The moment we quit trying to impress ourselves and others and possess Him and His will, it is the moment we start working it out. Make life about following, not forcing.
