Isn’t it funny we can think we are so holy while those around us act inappropriately, flesh out, fit out, down right sin. Pay attention and listen to the inner hearts response. Does your heart recoil and judge? Does it whisper accusing thoughts saying how dare they say and act that way?
We all look for the perfect person, full of strength power and encouragement. Someone to cheer us on, who will never make a mistake, nor fall. The perfect mentor, role model teacher, wise sage. WAKE UP there is no perfect person. We all have weekness, opposing opinions, views, and favourite sayings we preach.
I am interested in only one thing at present and that is to know Jesus Christ. See Him, Know Him, be in Him, and have much much much more less of me.
I am am tired of me. I am not very impressed with me. I fall short so often, and constantly reminded how easy it is to listen to doubts fear, and shame. I can boast boldly how great I am at submitting to God, resisting the devil, only to fall so quickly with a hard heart in judgment towards another tumbling over pride and self conceit. At times I feel ashamed, stained exposed.
Love patiently waits to remind me of THE PERFECT HELP. Paul said it in Philippians 3:8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith.
You see, even the disciples were told by Jesus to wait in Jerusalem till the promise arrived. Holy Spirit power, strength, fire, came upon and in them to live and further the Kingdom of God here on earth as it is in heaven.
Let Heaven invade us, let the Kingdom of heaven be our destination. Let the King of the Kingdom reign and rule our heart, so when we are faced with too much I, we can surrender and once more say with the Apostles Paul in Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
