I don't know about you all but, lately I have resisted from doing what God expects of me. Some things, I get right and do when HE asks, some things not so much. How do you prevent the urge of slothfulness, or going with the crowd when you know that is not what is best for your Christian life?
I am in the process of becoming Spiritually mature....It has been far too long. And, I know that God is trying to refine me and set me on my Purpose Path. He is readying me for a wonderful work that will Glorify Him. However, there are times when I feel that I am acting like Moses or Jonah. I am reluctant to do those things which will strengthen my Christian Faith and help me to witness more to those that are lost. Why? I imagine it is the age old battle between the Flesh and the Spirit (Romans 7:19). We/I want to do that which is pleasing to my Lord but, the Sin that is within me wants to come out and rule my life that is not my own.
Yet, there is Hope. His name is Jesus. I know that my Soul Saver came to capture me from myself, from my wicked flesh, and from eternal damnation. When, I experience those moments, days, weeks of weakness, He is strong and will rescue me and continue to set me on the Path that is straight and narrow and leads me to Him..
Jesus help me to fulfill that for which I was created. Help all of your Children to succeed in our Christian Elite Life. It is in your Name that I Ask, Pray, and Believe.
