Make My Life a Prayer to You
We all hear Christians talking about they have a right to be mad, etc.
The Holy Spirit spoke to me this morning, “Keith Green”. I felt it was for a song to go with this article. I had never heard this song before. I hope you will take the time to play it.
Now to get started today. What rights should us Christians have?
We died to self or suppose to have, that Jesus Christ might live through us when we were born again.
We then can live a ‘resurrected life’ through Him!
Never have I said I have arrived, or do I near think it. It is a daily walk, a daily dying to self for each child of God.
Self is made up of only self-ish desires!
That is why our self needs to be crucified.
I’m so glad we have a advocate with the Father if we do sin.
“My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:” 1 John 2:1
We all miss the mark at times and come short of His glory!
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;“ Romans 3:23
Getting back here, sometimes kindness is mistaken or weakness. The world has it turned around backwards. Kindness is actually a strength.
We are not weak but mighty and strong to do exploits through our God!
Are we troubled, perplexed, persecuted and cast down today?
It is by dying to what we want, that we will then begin to live!
In the natural, our way out of this life is of course to die one day.
The only other way if we are translated out as some have been. That of course would be Enoch & Elijah.
Still, I’m guessing more throughout the ages have translated without dying in the natural.
Still while we live on this earth we must decide to surrender all and die to self.
We are then being translated from one kingdom to another!
God bless you all.
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.” Matthew 16:24-25
“We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.” 2 Corinthians 4:8-10
“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Philippians 1:21
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:201
“And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” Daniel 11:32
