LET GO AND LET GOD BE HIMSELF
Are you weary from the daily struggle of trying to understand what God's will is for your life ? Are you continually searching and pleading with God for direction ?
During a quiet time with the Lord (4:00 a.m. in the morning ) He revealed some remarkable Truth's about Himself to me..............
1. HE LOVES ME : This was settled on the cross. "In this act we see what real love is : it is not our love for God, but his love for us when he sent his Son to satisfy God's anger against our sins." I John 4:10
2. HE'S MY HELPER : As a believer I have Him (Holy Spirit) as my companion, friend, counselor and comforter. He has taken up residence (my body) and lives with me on a permanent 24-7 basis. " No one can call himself a Christian without the Spirit of Christ in him." Rom. 8:9
3. HIS WILL FOR ME IS : to allow Him permission to be Himself in me, through me and around me.
My job is to clean up my act ......
Natives in Asia would trap monkeys by drilling holes in coconuts just big enough to fit the monkey’s hand, insert a peanut as bait and wait. The monkey would reach in and grab the peanut refusing to let go choosing bondage over freedom every time. Are we like these imprisoned monkeys, refusing to let go of the 'peanuts' in our life. Peanuts of fear, jealousy, selfishness, greed, unforgiveness, etc. Our refusal to release these things to the Lord keeps us in bondage to live out our lives unfulfilled, without purpose or direction.
Things we can do to free ourselves from enslavement.........
REALIZE WE LIVE WITH ROYALTY : As a believer you have Royalty (Jesus) that has taken up residence in your home (body) for eternity. Treat Him like Royalty. Give Him the daily recognition, respect and awareness that he deserves. Walk with Him, talk with Him and work with Him. In doing this you will never have to wonder what His will is for you because you will be living out that will on a daily basis with Jesus himself. He will lead you to places He wants you to go. He will bring those people to you that he wants you to befriend, encourage, counsel and comfort. He will give you the right words to say at the right time.
Freedom in the Spirit is ........
" Letting God be Himself in you, through you and around you "
Enjoy the journey !!!
