FORMULA: If God is the originator of something, He seems it through. Q.E.D. (Quod Erat Demonstrandum - That which has already been proven)
ACTION: The verse explains itself. Our part in the equation is simple - yet sober and difficult without commitment and perseverance. We have to cooperate with Him. Without our acknowledgment of His Lordship over our lives, sanctification to the high standards He set, will be either slow or almost non-existent, since we do grow even if by a centimeter. Trust and obey, because there is no other way,
PRAYER: Oh most kind and gracious God in Heaven, creator of all heaven and earth and as Charles Wesley says He Who loves our souls, we repent this day for having fallen short in our reaction to that to which You have called us in Your and Grace to us. First of all, Lord, thank You for calling me to Your side. Thank You for sending the Ancient of Days to sacrifice His Life for the forgiveness of my vile sins. Thank You for saving me and sticking with me through this process of drawing me even closer. Thank You that as time is fleeting, You still call me, and all Who will listen to come to the Knowledge of You so much so that it will mold and transform our lives into what You would have us be and what you created us to be, Father, we cry out for Your longsuffering and mercy as we grow more and more into the Image of Your Dear Son, so we will not be ashamed on that Day, to the Praise and Glory of His Name, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, amen and amen.
