For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.

Philippians 2:13

This is an awesome reminder. Too often I see obedience to Christ as a powerfully difficult job. But in reality, when I am obedient to what God says to my heart, I increase my sensitivity to his voice. And the desire to do what pleases him grows as well as an increase in the power to do it. This is all work he is doing on my behalf while I focus on obedience.

May your Sabbath today be sincerely restful, renewing and filled with joyful surprises of His presence and power!
