Jeremiah 9:23 Thus says the Lord:
“Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;
24 But let him who glories glory in this,
That he understands and knows Me,
That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.
For in these I delight,” says the Lord.
25 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “that I will punish all who are circumcised with the uncircumcised— 26 Egypt, Judah, Edom, the people of Ammon, Moab, and all who are in the farthest corners, who dwell in the wilderness. For all these nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in the heart.”
There are quite a lot of Us brethren that are so puffed up with our “suffering” for Christ, triumphs, victories, exploit and so on that we have forgotten that we are Vessels through which God makes His manifest power known. Our victories and successes have so much blinded us that we have become to share the glory with God.
Our hearts have become so calloused that we have become the alpha and the omega, all knowing, all seeing mini god!!!! Humble thou yourself now under the mighty hand of God. In your private space friends, is God enthroned?
Or have you and I gone off tangent, in darkness without an iota of consciousness. Are we subverting the work of God – carelessly speaking, acting and living in a way that unbelievers don’t really want to know the kind of God we say we serve. We preach and speak love but hatred and wickedness is our undergarment. Lord have mercy!!!!
God Almighty is Sovereign and rules in the affairs of men. Oh yes, we have mastered some things, we are intelligent and knowledgeable, self sufficient, self made, etc! Where is God in the equation of our lives? Is our hearts really circumcised? Or maybe it is riddled with wickedness, hatred, greed, envy, jealousy, deceit, pride – our nature before Christ found us.
Most High God we come to you today by the blood of Jesus Christ. Cleanse us, purify us and help us to see ourselves through your eyes. Our eyes have been blinded by the deceitfulness of sin.Wash us clean by the blood of Jesus Christ. Please Lord help us in Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen
We want you Lord to work in Us to will and to act in order for your good pleasure to be fulfilled in our lives. That we might be a sign and a wonder to this world of wickedness. We pray Lord that your light will shine through us to the uttermost part of the earth. Let our lifes, conduct and all bring others to the sheep fold in Christ Jesus name. May you open the eyes of our hearts to see wondrous things in your words Oh Lord in Jesus name. Amen.
