Thy people shall be willing

(PSALMS 110:3)

  Willing for what? What are the people of God willing? Could it be to seek after God? If that were so, the scripture in Romans 3 would be a contradiction (There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God).


And as we know the word of the Lord is truth! So, there are none who seek after him willingly! The nature of men fell in Adam! All mankind willingly follows their nature, being spiritually dead in trespasses and sin, we seek only the things that satisfy the flesh! This is why there are so many different types of man’s imaginary gods, we conjure up god’s to fit our hearts desire, according to what satisfies our nature, a deer eats vegetation, because that’s it’s nature!


A lion will kill and eat meat because it’s their nature! The nature of man is sin and cannot understand Spiritual truths, for the truths of God are Enmity to our very nature (Rom.8:7). The Lord of Glory declares “YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN” (Jhn.3:3), this is the work of God and God alone! Who has had anything to do with their own birth?


To be born again means too be given a new nature, the old natural heart, must be removed and a new heart that desires the truths of God must be put in its place, a new man, a new will, notice the last half of the statement “Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power,” it takes the power of God for life to form, and the power of God for men to willingly seek after him! man will not seek God until the Lord by His power gives Spiritual life, then once alive, seeing our desperate need of a Savior, we submit willingly, yielding, and fully to Jesus the Lord!

   “There can be no grace when there is no sovereignty.  Deny God’s right to choose whom He will, and you deny His right to save whom He will.  Deny His right to save whom He will, and you deny that salvation is of grace.  If salvation is made to hinge upon any desert or fitness in man, seen or foreseen, grace is at an end.

Horatius Bonar (1808-89), minister in Scotland
