Purify my heart
Let it be as gold
And precious silver
Purify my heart
My heart’s one desire
Is to be holy
Set apart for You Lord
I choose to be holy
Set apart for You my master
Ready to do Your will.
I need you Lord Jesus, oh how I need you for my now and forever.
Stand with me Lord, I have no power of my own!
Jesus help me to lean on you, to put on your strength and power that is able to sustain me
I receive of you Lord strength for my weakness and abundant grace to do all things
Gather me in your mighty arms Lord, for you are my safety
My life and destiny depends upon your faithfulness Lord
So is the life of my family and countless others in your kingdom
I pray Lord that you will take preeminence and glorify yourself in the midst of your chosen one
Let your Kingdom come Oh Lord and your Will be done!
The Importance of Attitude
Romans 12: 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
The transformed mind is:
Faithful, loyal, honest, graceful, joyful, peaceful, courageous, gentle, bold, compassionate, friendly, approachable, loving, kind, merciful, humble, adorable, patient, resilient, truthful, obedient, modest, trusting, ………………………………………………………………………………………..
However, an un-transformed mind is envious, backbites, false accuser, lies, a tale bearer, rumor monger, boastful, rude, proud, selfish, harsh, disloyal, fearful, insecure, impatient, weak, hateful, disobedient, wicked, depressed, lack self esteem, inconsiderate, slanders, manipulate, …………………………………………………………………..
Which mind is mine? Which is yours? Friends, let us examine ourselves and make necessary adjustment, maybe a 360 degree turn around to be transformed,changed by the renewal of our minds by the Word of God, to be who we are created to be.
I have been transformed, renewed, changed, empowered, endowed with the mind of Christ according to the scriptures. I am who God created me to be – a success, champion, over-comer, line crosser, barrier breaker, victor, discoverer, change agent, uniquely endowed to do exploit and impact my community for the glory of God, Most High.
Will you join me friends? Let us join hands together to encourage and assist each other to be who God created us to be. Let us unite to depopulate the kingdom of darkness to the glory of God Our Father, the King Eternal, All Knowing, All Seeing God. To whom be glory, honor, and adoration, world without end. Amen
Happy New Month!!!!
Friends, be encouraged and know that God will not leave nor forsake you. He loves you so deeply beyond human comprehension. Imagine your first love, the fluttering of butterflies in your hearts and stomach. The giggling sensation of a loving touch and overwhelming calmness of contentment in the arm of your love. All this is not adequate enough to describe the love experience with the most high God. It is just too awesome! Knowing God loves you, with weakness and all is something that should give you warmth.
You see we do not qualify for love because on our own merit, there ain’t anything good in us, we backbite, hate, envy, tell lies, an average Joe is full of arrogance and so on. Yet God gave his own son Jesus Christ to die for my sins and yours. Christ redeemed us from all the evil that was second nature to us.
The evil things we enjoyed in the past is repulsive to us now. In the past when a guy “checks you out” you feel good about it. Now you are like common man, repent. You are conscious of your royalty, you are not common, not cheap, you are rare, wonderfully and beautifully made, not a play thing to be handled any how. You are Christ ambassador, a diplomat, God’s own special person. Whoa!
Our God is awesome, recreating strength, courage, love and patience out of nothingness. Revamping our life’s to exude glory, honor and majesty. Can you see the picture of who you are through the eyes of the Master? Open your hearts my friends, let the love of Christ in. You will be transformed to be who you are created to be, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a special people that God gives authority to have dominion upon all things created.
Will you draw close to God today, repent of your do it yourself approach to life, invite Jesus in to take the rein and lead you on the path of righteousness. He loves you regardless of your decision today. You will be doing yourself a disservice if you reject Christ love. It is freely given, please stretch your heart, extend your hands today, reach out in faith, just believe and ask him to touch you today. Tomorrow might be too late!. Today is the day that the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it.
A song of ascents.
1 Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord;
2 Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive
to my cry for mercy.
3 If you, Lord, kept a record of sins,
Lord, who could stand?
4 But with you there is forgiveness,
so that we can, with reverence, serve you.
5 I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,
and in his word I put my hope.
6 I wait for the Lord
more than watchmen wait for the morning,
more than watchmen wait for the morning.
7 Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
for with the Lord is unfailing love
and with him is full redemption.
8 He himself will redeem Israel
from all their sins.
