"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement # 144 Today's Word Is: Willing"

Definition of the word Willing: Favourably disposed; readily: gladly willing, joyously acceptance.

Exodus chapter 35 -5 : Take ye from among you and offering unto the Lord: whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an d offering of the Lord; gold and silver and gold.

Psalms chapter 110 - 3" Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauty of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.

Matthews chapter 26 - 41 : Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing , but the flesh is weak.

2 Corinthians chapter 5 - 8 : We are confident, I say and willing rather to be absent from the body; and to be present with the Lord.

2 Corinthians chapter 8 -12 : For if, there be a willing mind, it is acceptable according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.

1 Timothy chapter 6 - 18 : That they do good, that they be rich in good words, ready to distribute, willing to communicate.

2 Peter chapter 3 - 9: The Lord is not slack concerning his promise ,as some men count slackness;but is long suffering to usward, not willing that an y should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Today's daily words of encouragement is the word Willing.  The bible says the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak, what that means is we as children of God; want to do the right things, but our flesh and yielding.  I thin k the apostle Paul had the same problem, because he made the statement that when ever he would try to do good, something made him do wrong. even with that said and done' we all have to always be striving and willing to try and do better. 

We have to be able to love our brothers and sisters in  Christ, even if they lie on us and hurt us; we have to be willing to forgive them their transgressions. We have to have a willing heart in all things pertaining to the word of God.  We must always be willing to live our lives according to Gods word, and  not the doctrine of men.

Oh, yes creativeone. Due to our many imperfections we have wanted to do what is right, but have allowed our flesh to interfere. That's where prayer and supplication comes in. It's only through the help of God that we can truly pummel our bodies and lead it has a slave - a slave to good practices. Thanks for another great reminder.
