The Promises of God:
Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power" (Psalm 110:3).
Here again we have the promise of being made willing - God is always longing to show forth His glory and power through our lives but it does require our willingness! The best example of this kind of willingness is Mary - Jesus mother - when the angel came to her announcing that she was highly favored and would bear a child who would be the Son of God - she easily could have drawn back from such an assignment - she was not yet married - she was very young - it cost her embarrassment and misunderstanding - yet her response was one of absolute willingness - "behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it unto me according to your word." May our hearts and lives respond with that kind of willingness to God's desires - today and every day!
