It’s Happening Real-Time by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

It's Happening Real-Time by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

For it is God which worketh in you both
to will and to do of his good pleasure
(Philippians 2:13).

Notice that the verse we just read doesn’t
say, “For it is God who used to work in
you….” Rather, it says, “For it is God which
worketh in you….” The word, “worketh” is old English
for “works”; it’s not in the past or future tense. It’s a
present progressive tense. God is at work in you, NOW!
It’s happening in real time. He’s effectively at work in
you, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the
longing and the ability to fulfil His perfect will for His
good pleasure. Aren’t you glad about that!

This means there’s no margin or possibility for
failure or weakness, because the Almighty God Himself
is the one propelling, inspiring, enabling and driving you
to do His will! There’re those who are concerned and
even scared about tomorrow; not being sure if they’d
still be pleasing God, and walking in His light. No! Not
when you’re conscious that He’s the One at work in
you.

Yes, by your own strength you won’t make it;
you might falter and fall. The Bible says “He will keep
the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in
darkness; for by strength (natural human ability) shall no
man prevail” (1 Samuel 2:9). He thus gave us the Holy
Spirit, to live in us and help us live the God-life to the
full.

Walking in righteousness, participating in godly and productive activities, attending church meetings,
preaching the Gospel, loving others, etc., are results of
His effectual, real-time work in you! All that time you
had the thought to do something that’s good for God,
and good for people, it wasn’t your mind or your flesh;
it was God working in you.

Even now, He’s the One at work in you as you
study this devotional. Through the teachings, prayers,
further study, and the different daily Bible readings,
He’s bringing you information and enlightenment. The
intensity of His glory is increasing in your life, as you
bask in untold blessings of His Word. He’s making
necessary adjustments, transformations and changes in
your life, to keep you a champion and a victor forever.
And He’s doing this in real time! Hallelujah!

PRAYER
Dear Father, I acknowledge, and take full advantage
of your inherent power and energy, which so
powerfully works in me. I bask in your mighty grace
that’s at work in me even now, and I declare that
I can do all things through Christ which strengthens
me. I’m sufficient in your sufficiency, functioning by
the ability, efficiency, and might of the Spirit, in
Jesus’s Name. Amen.
