Most people feel that they don't have solid control of their lives. This article will examine what is needed to really have control and authority over your life.
Whenever we don't have wisdom or experience it is wise to seek out the One Who does. The Bible tells us to pray to God and ask Him for Wisdom (James 1:5-8). God is All Knowing And All Wise (Psalm 139:2-6; Job 37:16; Romans 16:27). We are advised to read God's Holy Word and devote ourselves to obeying God. He will give us His Holy Spirit Which will bring Wisdom and Desirable opportunities our way (Psalm 119:105).
Jesus tells us that God will provide all other things when we put God's interests (the Kingdom) first in our lives (Matthew 6:25-34). God's Word tells us not to harp (overly think) on the sins and flaws of life. We are told to trust in the Abundant Forgiveness and Love of God through Jesus Christ's Shed Blood (1 John 7-10; 1 John 4:8; 1 Peter 4:8; Romans 5:9).
Therefore we should never harp (overly think) about life's flaws. We should always be forgiving and ready to move our focus back to God. God promises to give "perfect" peace to those who obey this commandments. (Matthew 6:9-14; John 14-16; Psalm 26:3; Philippians 4:4-8).
If you haven't done so already ask Jesus now to come into your life. It is Jesus who will be your Wonderful Counselor and Provider/Savior (Isaiah 9:6; Romans 10:10-13). Once you have done that you will have Access to God's Throne and His Holy Spirit Presence (John 4:24; Hebrews 4:16). You must then ask God's Holy Spirit to help you strip off your Pre-Jesus (Salvation) ways (Galatians 5:1-24; Corinthians 6:9-14; 1 John 2:15-17).
Your Pre-Jesus ways are fleshy and sin. You must cultivate the things of the Spirit. You can view these Holy Spirit Things at (Galatians 5:19-24; Ephesians 6:10-18; Philippians 2:1-10; Philippians 4:4-8; 1 Corinthians 12: 1-31).
As you begin to think "In The Spirit" (as a Spiritual person) "doors of opportunity" will Supernaturally swing open for you. God will shower you with His Love. Life will not be perfect and will still have it's daily concerns BUT you will see your Faithful God Working In Your Behalf (Matthew 6:25-34; Hebrews 13:5-6). The key is to always cultivate the Holy Spirit into yourself. Never cultivate, accept or confess what is occurring outside of God's Spirit Presence realm. You must also shun anyone or anything that is not helping you Grow In The Spirit Of God.
Never let your sins or the trials of life sway you. Never trust your feelings or anything occurring around you. Always remember that God and His Holy Word Is Faithful. You are fully forgiven in the Name and Blood Of Jesus Christ and no one can bring a sound accusation against you (Romans Chapter 8). When you sin or make mistakes do not overly think your flaws.
The Bible says to confess your sins to God and plead the Blood of Jesus Christ. God will definitely forgive you of your errors buy you may "escape" the results of your sins (1 John 1:7-10; Exodus 34:7; Numbers 14:18). The key is to always cultivate the Holy Spirit into yourself. Never cultivate, accept or confess what is occurring outside of God's Spirit Presence realm.
