Philippians 2:13
‘For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him.’

Mark 8:34 Then he called his disciples and the crowds to come over and listen. “If any of you wants to be my follower,” he told them, “you must put aside your own pleasures and shoulder your cross, and follow me closely.

If we are going to keep in step with God we need to follow the beat of His drum. We need to flow to His rhythm.

Psalm 1:1-2 Oh, the joys of those who do not follow evil men’s advice, who do not hang around with sinners, scoffing at the things of God. 2But they delight in doing everything God wants them to, and day and night are always meditating on his laws and thinking about ways to follow him more closely.

To be able to march to His beat we, we first need to be able to hear His beat. As we experience His presence in our lives, we begin to hear that beat and in the process we can walk in step with Him

Galatians 5:25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. (NIV)
