I Thank You For Your Love
SHEEP: Father, I thank You for the strength I am experiencing today – it started yesterday afternoon. More than this I thank You for Your love and faithfulness, grace and goodness You extend to me daily. You do everything for our best and I praise and thank You.
When I consider the cross and all You suffered for me – I am humbled.
You know every thought, every part, every movement I make. You want nothing but the best for me and that can only be found in You alone. I confess I don't always understand Your ways or like it at times (Sometimes it scares me and I realize I'm not trusting because of the wrangling of my mind.)
However, I choose to walk in simplify and trust of a child with my hand in Yours. It is only by Your grace this can be accomplished. I love you, Lord. Thank You for first loving me. It's all about You.
May my life bring glory to you. Amen.
GOD'S WORD: 1 John 3:5-6 "You know that He appeared in visible form and became Man to take away [upon Himself] sins, and in Him there is no sin [essentially and forever]. No one who abides in Him [who lives and remains in communion with and in obedience to Him—deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] commits (practices) sin. No one who [habitually] sins has either seen or known Him [recognized, perceived, or understood Him, or has had an experiential acquaintance with Him]."
SHEEP: We keep from sinning by abiding in Christ. He frees us from the power of sin and enables us to live to please God.
To be free from the power of sin – take these words
"of God I am in Him"
"He that establishes us in Christ is God.
As I seek to abide in Him, Christ will live out His own life in me in the power of the Holy Spirit so I will do all things pleasing in His sight.
