Most of the time our strongest and biggest enemy is ourselves, we bow to the power of the flesh and yield to its demands.
My biggest fear is not in failing for if my God is for me, who can be against me?
My fear is that I believe I did it on my own and forget who Christ is so easy and that my life is about me.
I need to be reminded that without Him, I am nothing more than dust, pride rules our hearts and minds, our flesh is strong and our enemies numerous, but thanks be to God who gives us the victory over the flesh, the devil, and the world.
May we never forget where we came from, where we are going, or who we belong to.
If God has raised you up from the ashes, then you are His forever.
My prayer is that in all things my life would glorify Him, that I will walk humbly in His presence, hating what is evil in me and in the world, live mercifully with others and give the grace I receive, these things I know I cannot do on my own, but only with the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Surrendering our will is a daily thing, in every decision, in every act, in every thought and deed we must surrender to the will of God.
Pride's folly has led me down the wrong road more than once, it is a place I pray I never return to.
Help me Lord Jesus to live my life totally abandoned to self, and surrendered to you. My victory, my life is in you alone.
God’s word say this;
“Mankind, he has told each of you what is good and what it is the Lord requires of you: to act justly, to love faithfulness, and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8 CSB
“For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am of the flesh, sold as a slave to sin. For I do not understand what I am doing, because I do not practice what I want to do, but I do what I hate. Now if I do what I do not want to do, I agree with the law that it is good. So now I am no longer the one doing it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh. For the desire to do what is good is with me, but there is no ability to do it. For I do not do the good that I want to do, but I practice the evil that I do not want to do. Now if I do what I do not want, I am no longer the one that does it, but it is the sin that lives in me. So I discover this law: When I want to do what is good, evil is present with me. For in my inner self I delight in God’s law, but I see a different law in the parts of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and taking me prisoner to the law of sin in the parts of my body. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with my mind I myself am serving the law of God, but with my flesh, the law of sin.” Romans 7:14-25 CSB
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!” 1 Corinthians 15:57 CSB
