God Causes What He Commands

“[God] does not say, ‘Delight yourself in the Lord’ (Psalm 37:4), and then merely stand back and watch to see if we can. He makes a covenant with us and says, ‘I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes (Ezekiel 36:27).’ He causes what he commands. Enjoying Jesus is not optional. It is a duty. But it is also a gift – spiritual and gracious.” – John Piper

What a comfort it is to know that God’s Spirit enables us to do anything He asks of us! Nothing is impossible with God!
