Lord, make me full of Your Holy Spirit? I want to be full of You this 2020. Show me how I can get full of You.
Above All Else, The Way to Find Victory
To begin with, one must believe I died just for them, for their personal sins. And that I died so they may live. They must also believe after I spent 3 days in the tomb of death, that I rose again to eternal life. Then they must repent, and ask forgiveness for their sins. (When you ask, I promise to forgive.) Finally, one must turn away from their sins and surrender their hearts and their lives to Me.
Some people forget this part. They continue on with their sinful life choices, choosing to live for their own selfish pleasures instead of seeking My will for their life.
Some people have the misconception that they can say a few prayerful words, shake a preacher’s hand, and all is well. They believe the words of that prayer saves them. Not so.
It’s a total heart and life surrender. It is My Presence within their heart. True repentance is a complete turning away from sins. It’s a total life change.
Prayerful words do not save you. But a real relationship with Me does. One must surrender their heart to ME. It’s all about a relationship with Me.
None Are Excluded From His Love
I love ALL and exclude none from My love. But some exclude Me for they choose their own fleshly self-pleasures over My love. They reject My plan for their life and My love for them. They reject Me. Their life choices and rejection of My love for them grieves My heart for I know what they could have- eternal life and complete peace, My peace.
I long for My children to accept My love. But I will never force My love on anyone. Although I am the eternal, omnipotent God, I allow My children free will to choose whether to accept My love for them or not.
Those who choose My love will live forever in My love. Those who reject My love will forever be in rejection. I call to them, but they close their ears to My voice.
They chose eternal damnation. They determined the consequences of their life choices.
But now I reach out to offer My love to you. What do you choose?
Within your love, Lord, I choose You. I want Your love and I want Your will in my life. So make me full of Your Presence, and Your Holy Spirit.
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in the present age. Titus 2:11-12 NIV
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not of works, so that no one can boast.Ephesians 2:8 NIV
