Happy Anniversary to us, 35th.
On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. Psalm 62:7 ESV
8 There are seasons of service in the Kingdom of God. God was not done with the Levites over 50, they just had a different assignment. It is important to come holy before the Lord no matter in what capacity we serve Him. Sin cannot rule in one who belongs to the Lord.
9 Passover is significant to me in that the Lord passed me over when He went to the Cross so that I may enter into eternal life with Him. I am dead to self but alive to Him. Go when the Spirit says, “Go”. Stay when the Spirit says, “Stay”.
When people choose the world over the Lord, they are choosing adultery against God. Discipline is important in living for the Lord.
2 Corinthians 5
I do long to put on my heavenly dwelling and look forward to when I will eternally be with the Lord and not have to deal with earthly things. Thank You Lord that You have given me the Holy Spirit as my guarantee. I can cope with the things on earth because I have the Holy Spirit to lead and guide me. Praise the Lord that I am a new creation in Him who saves me and He who reconciled me to the Father. Death to self while on earth and living in Messiah is what proves that Yeshua is truly Lord of my life. As the Lord reconciled me to the Father, I am to share this good news so others can also be reconciled to Him.
Meditate & Apply: There have been and will continue to be Spirit led seasons in my life and in each of them I must live dead to self and alive to Lord Yeshua. This year I am working on being intentional which means discipline. I do welcome all of Your direction Lord for me to do this. Being a Christian means I no longer live for self because I am supposed to be dead to self. It means I must be 100% surrendered to my Lord, led by the Holy Spirit through this life to the next one to come.
,This year I am working on being intentional which means discipline. the D word. Yesterday I was struggling in my mind on how I need to continue to being disciplined in my life with food and the Word. My flesh is nuts and wants what it wants, but my spirit man wants discipline. So I strive toward that. Daily. Some days are better than others.
Yes, I totally understand! I think the best thing to do when struggling is to stop and pray in the Spirit until back on track!
Praying for direction right now for that- seasons of service. Thank you Lord for Your direction, guidance, and peace.
