my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but
now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and
trembling. For it is God that worketh in you, both to will and to do of
his good pleasure. Philippians 2:12-13 (KJV)
body is out of shape, isn't it up to you to work your own body back in
shape? Nobody works out for you, right? Well, in the same sense, the
Bible tells you to work out your own salvation. Nobody can do it for
you. You cannot depend on ministers, your family or friends to do it
for you. It is your salvation. You have to work this thing.
work out your own salvation by working God's word into your life, and
by personalizing and making His word real to you. When you do this, God
can complete His plans for you, and then you will see success in your
life. Not a smidgen of s uccess every now and again, but the everyday
success that God has for you.
Now, here's the good news! God
is not asking you to work it out all by yourself. But God is, all the
while, effectively at work in you, energizing and creating in you the
power and desire to do His will. So, while you are working it out, you
are giving God control to do His will in your life. There is no excuse
for you to not work out your own salvation when God is the source of
your strength. Yes, problems may come against you, but if you allow
them to keep you from working out your salvation, then those same
problems will stop you from doing what God has called you to do. God
didn't say to work out your own salvation as long as no one talks about
you, bothers you, or hurts you. He said to work it out everyday.
you need help working out your salvation, go to God. He's the only One
who can help you. Give God every area of your life. Don't pick and
choose what God can handle! He can handle all your problems. Do it
God's way and you will have victory every time.
