    What does it mean to Work Out Your Salvation?

    I think a lot of believers don't know what it means to work out your own salvation. Many, I've come to realize think this means that salvation comes by works and not of free gift of grace through Jesus Christ. So, let's study this. I found a great little bible study on this passage below.

    Finding God's Will

    When you make a decision, how do you know you are choosing to do the right thing? In this message, Dr. Stanley explains why we have trouble discerning God’s will and how sin affects our ability to walk in the path He has chosen for us. He also encourages us to discover the Lord’s will through reading the Word of God, praying faithfully, trusting our heavenly Father’s sovereignty over our circumstances, and listening to the wise counsel of others.

Ask God for what you want!

    Ask God for what you want!

    'THE REASON YOU DON'T HAVE WHAT YOU WANT IS...YOU DON'T ASK GOD.' JAMES 4:2

    Imagine walking into your local Chinese takeaway and asking if your order is ready. 'When did you phone it in?' the server asks. 'Oh I didn't,' you reply, 'I just thought perhaps you'd have something with my name on it.' Sound ridiculous? No more so than expecting God to answer requests you haven't made. The book of James says, 'The reason you don't have what you want is...you don't ask God.'

    Does that mean He'll automatically give you everything you ask for? No. James adds, 'Even when you do ask you don't get it because...you want only what will give you pleasure? (James 4:3 TLB). Your motives need to be in tune with what God knows is best for you. John says, 'This is the confidence...we have in Him...if we ask anything...according to His will...He...hears (1John 5:14 AMP). Lamentations 3:25 says, 'The Lord is good to those who wait...expectantly for Him' (AMP).

    Expectant prayer demonstrates confidence in God's goodness. Instead of stressing out and taking matters into your own hands, when you say, 'Lord, I'm going to trust you with this, no matter what happens,' He'll honour your faith. Paul says, 'Pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks' (Philippians 4:6 NCV). Do you need a job? Help overcoming a problem? Do your friends or family need to become Christians? Need a deeper walk with God? Do you need physical or emotional healing? Jesus said, 'It gives your Father great happiness to give you the [benefits of his] Kingdom' (Luke 12:32 NLT).

    God wants to be good to you, so tell Him the 'desires of your heart' (Psalm 37:4 NKJV). Thank Him that the answer will come in His time!
