God works in you.

vaD  'oH  ghaH  joH'a'  'Iv  vum  Daq  SoH both  Daq  DIchDaq  je  Daq  vum,  vaD  Daj  QaQ pleasure.
For it is God who works in you both to will and to work, for his good pleasure. (Philippians 2:13)

God works. 

God works in you.

Matthew Henry puts it well:

It is the grace of God which inclines the will to that which is good: and then enables us to perform it, and to act according to our principles. Thou hast wrought all our works in us,Isa. xxvi. 12. Of his good pleasure. As there is no strength in us, so there is no merit in us. As we cannot act without God's grace, so we cannot claim it, nor pretend to deserve it. God's good will to us is the cause of his good work in us; and he is under no engagements to his creatures, but those of his gracious promise.
