The Living and Transforming Word of God - Unleashed in Us Through Humility - Friday, August 25th
Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord, equip you in every good thing to do His will, “working in us” that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:20-21
Today's thoughts from today's verses:
Humility is all about embracing completely the reality that we don’t have what it takes on our own, but that we do when it is God “working in us.” That is what the new covenant is all about – God coming to dwell in us by His Spirit on the basis of our being cleansed through the blood of Christ so that He does in us and through us that which pleases Him and which we on our own could not otherwise bring about. Is it not high time that we move from the place of denial of our true condition to the place of full acceptance of and participation in God’s complete provision for genuine transformation of life?
Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:
Lord, I thank you that your living and transforming Word has been unleashed within me. Help me continually bow before you in full awareness of my forever need to surrender to you and depend on you for the righteous life you have called me to. I am so blessed to have you “working in me” that which is pleasing in your sight and for your glory forever and ever. Amen!
