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

There is another song that tells us about this idea. The song is entitled: ‘Every day with Jesus is sweeter than the day before!’

Every day with Jesus
Is sweeter than the day before
Every day with Jesus
I love Him more and more,
Jesus saves and keeps me
And He’s the One I’m waiting for;
Every day with Jesus
Is sweeter than the day before.

With God in our lives, we can discover more and more about Him. Our relationship with the Lord is like a voyage of discovery, where each day brings with it a new perspective, a new vista, and a new appreciation. Our relationship with God can grow until we reach that sweetest moment of all when we will see Him face to face.

1 Corinthians 13:12 For now [in this time of imperfection] we see in a mirror dimly [a blurred reflection, a riddle, an enigma], but then [when the time of perfection comes, we will see reality] face to face. Now I know in part [just in fragments], but then I will know fully, just as I have been fully known [by God].

Why would we walk the road of life alone, when we can walk it with the One Who loves and cares for us – the One Who made us. The Lord is our Good Shepherd, the Lord is our ever-present help in times of trouble. When trouble comes, He is our hope and strength. Each one of us is walking this road with our Saviour and He will show us the way we should go. In good times and in bad times, He is the One we need. Each day can be another day to follow Him in all we say and do. The adventure that is our walk of faith with God takes us from strength to strength and from glory to glory. And one day we will see Him face to face and know the One Who truly knows us and know the One Who has walked with us all the way, even when we did not realise it.

Psalm 23:6 ‘Surely Your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.’

Hebrews 12:2 ‘Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith!’
