Do you want to be blessed? Develop a servant’s heart. If Jesus stepped down from his glorious equality with God, and serve humans we ought to be willing to step down from SELF and serve Him & others.
I know that most of you have heard the statement: “God knows my heart”. Well that is very true…Mark 28 tells us how Jesus knew that the high priest reasoned within themselves. Luke Well, from the beginning of time, even in the first book of the Bible, Genesis 6:5, God say that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of mans heart was only evil continually.
Not one of us has the ability to cleanse our own heart. Proverbs 20:9 states: “Who can say, “I have cleansed my heart, I am pure and free from sin?”
Proverbs 21:2 says people may be right in their own heart, but the LORD examines their heart.
God wants wicked hearts to depart from him. In Psalm 101:4 it states: A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person.
Ezekiel 11:19 says: And I will give them singleness of heart and put a new spirit within them. I will take away their stoney, stubborn heart and give them a tender, responsive heart, a heart of flesh.
It’s amazing how humanity tries to change God by coming up with man made laws to justify their actions so they will not have to conform to the Word. Romans 10: 3 remind us: For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
Everyday we experience different confrontations and so many different people cross our pathways. Sometime we get caught up in situations and it it difficult to figure out how we got there. For this reason, It is important that each day before we take off into the world of battles we should ask the Lord to prepare us for what is coming.
Take this scripture with you each day and say it:
THE PEACE OF GOD WHICH PASSETH ALL UNDERSTANDING KEEPS MY HEART AND MY MIND THROUGH CHRIST JESUS. AND THINGS WHICH ARE GOOD, AND PURE AND PERFECT AND LOVELY AND OF A GOOD REPORT, I THINK ON THESE THINGS.
Heavenly Father, these days are days of sorrow and great trickery. I thank you for being ever-present in my life and in all the decisions that I am faced with. I ask forgiveness of any decision that I have made that is not in position with your will. Furthermore, Lord, I need You to get involved in my life in a powerful way and grant me the skill to separate of the “Spirit” of truth from the spirit of error.
Teach me to examine the spirits to see whether they are from You (1John 4:1). Let your word prick my heart and cause me to practice how to distinguish the good from evil so I will be unpolluted and blameless for the day of “Christ”, help my love to flourish more and more in all judgment
Lord, allow my eyes to see the disguises of “Satan” In the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, show me through your eyes, let me hear with a spiritual ear and embrace me with Your mighty power. Father, I thank you for hearing my prayer. I trust and have faith that You are giving me that special ability to discern what your will is for me. I thank you Lord, in the name of Jesus, ….Give me Your Eyes So I can See.
According to the Bible…
The Ten Commandments were only a reminder that we indeed needed a savior to cleanse us from what we inherited through Adam and Eve. The Ten Commandments was a constant reminder that we are sinners. Like a sign displaying the speed limit, we are reminded not to go over that speed limit, however it does that sign does not stop us from sinning. The Ten Commandments did not stop people from sinning and neither did all those sacrifices. Brothers and sisters, it is only through the indwelling Holy spirit that we can obey the ten commandments.God puts his word in our hearts when we invite Him into our hearts…We’re under a new promise…
This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
We no longer need to be reminded of our old sinful nature, now we are to concentrate on our new nature, the born again nature put on the inside of all those who truly received Jesus as their personal Lord and Saviour.
Now when God looks upon us, he see the Blood of Jesus instead of our old sinful nature. We are the only ones that continue to condemn ourselves, God has forgiven therefore, we must forget the old man and concentrate on the new man. God passed over our sins like in Exodus chapter 12:12 says:
On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn—both men and animals—and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the LORD. The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.
I don’t know about you but I am glad God sent Jesus…The Living Word!!! Our Savior!!!
