The scripture for February 13 is Philippians 2:13 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

“For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.”

Here is another related verse: “The Lord opened her heart to respond” (Acts 16:14)”

God the Father moved people’s hearts throughout the Bible ~ Old Testament and New Testament. But he never moved hearts to do what they were not already inclined to do. He does not go against someone’s will, for he gave everyone free will.

If you are struggling to know the will of your religious leaders and friends, you struggle alone. If you are sincerely struggling to know God’s will and do it, the Father will help you. If you are struggling to act according to the purpose of your religious leaders and friends, you struggle alone. If you are sincerely struggling to act according to God’s good purpose, the Father will help you. If you have a sincerely open heart, God can move you closer to himself so that he can work in you and through you on earth.

He will always tell you what to do through his Word ~ the Bible. You do not have to guess. It covers every possible situation you could ever face and shows you his good purposes. God the Father will work in you if you let him.

  1. STRAIGHT TO THE TOP! – Graham, Texas – When I was 19 and my wife was 16 we started our own construction company. We had no money and no jobs but I promised to pay the owner of a hard ware store $3 a weeks for an electric saw. The company grew into a large industrial/commercial business building schools, clinics, churches, manu-facturing plants, setting heavy machinery and we actual built a zoo with no fences, and a little bit of railroad. Also restored an 1867 calvary fort complete with hand whittled wooden pegs. After 28 years I burned out working 16 to 18 hours a day. My wife owned a furniture store and I became an employee. Went back to school and earned my CHC which enabled me to study for my Interior Design degree and registration. Practiced that for 28 years. Said I would never retire, but my wife closed the store! Past Lay Preacher in Methodist Church. Currently non-denominational. Have taught in Assembly of God, non-denominational charisamatic and Methodist. Teach Bible Studies, Christian Values and Christian Living. Artist, Interior designer, writer, Favorite hobby is reading, or is that sandpapering? We just sold our two story Victorian home with 17 rooms, 4 full baths, 2 half baths. Built in 1900 and 1901. Since it is all wood, keeping it in repair was a full time job. Currently living in the 'burbs', If there is such a thing in TEXAS! Can now mow the yard in only one and one half hours. Whooopieee!

    He will always tell you what to do through his Word ~ the Bible. You do not have to guess. It covers every possible situation you could ever face and shows you his good purposes. God the Father will work in you if you let him.

    AMEN Sister! These ‘lofty’ thoughts thingies are for the birds. Lets stick to the Bible, not some flouncy Shakessperian drama play on words!
