In prayer, you will be confronted with the choice of choosing your will or God’s will. How long do you want the Spirit of God to keep striving with you? You are getting another chance if God is striving with you. There are people that God strives with and He knows they don't have much time left to have their way because there's a devil waiting out there to destroy them and God keeps coming to them. Don't win over the Holy Spirit. Don't win over the will of God; you will only end up losing in life.
The Bible says, “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land (Isa. 1:19).” If you are not willingly staying where you are, you will not get the good of that place. There's no crown without a cross. The cross is the will of God that crosses a man's will. Where the will of God crosses your own will, that's when you carry the cross and if there is no mark of the cross in your life, you are a weak Christian.
Every powerful Christian carries the mark of the cross. Paul said, “From now on let no one trouble me, for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus (Gal. 6:17).” He said, “But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world (Gal. 6:14).” That's when you are loosed from every hindrance and you begin to flow in the will of God and the power of God.
PRAYER: Lord, I am willing and obedient, I will eat the fruit of whatever I do in Jesus’ name. Amen!
