I see you and I honour you in your journey of life with me. I love your enlarging capacity to face your difficulties and I rejoice at your humble devotion to me.
Now I challenge you to put aside even more of yourself, laying down your selfishness in a way that demonstrates how bored you are with living for yourself. For I am bored with how much unnecessary time you lavish on you and yours and how you protect space for you, without inviting me, YAHWH, into that space. Leave behind the hours of only planning and thinking of you.
I bought your life at my Son’s expense, for your value is immeasurable to me. So, my church, bring your fullness of heart to me for the sake of others, as Christ did for you.
Activation: Ask Holy Spirit, ‘Where are you provoking today?’ Is it to rely less on yourself, your intellect? Have you yet come to the end of yourself? Choose this day how you will live. Do not run past His challenge. Trust in Him and He will act.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.Philippians 2:3 (NIVUK)
In fact, the mind-set focused on the flesh fights God’s plan and refuses to submit to his direction, because it cannot!Romans 8:7 (TPT)
