Goodbye Self Effort!
I'm done with my own self effort, in me is nothing but a wounded person that needs to be touch by his righetousness. . Before we came to the Lord Jesus we were wounded people. AS the word of God says in Isaiah 1:5-
5Why do you insist on being battered?
Why do you continue to rebel?
Your head has a massive wound,
your whole body is weak.
6From the soles of your feet to your head,
there is no spot that is unharmed.
There are only bruises, cuts,
and open wounds.
They have not been cleansed or bandaged,
nor have they been treated with olive oil. Yeah that was what sin did to us left us bleeding, AS the word of God says in Ezekiel 16:6-“‘I passed by you and saw you kicking around helplessly in your blood. All that sin did was leave us bankrupt, with no one to help us. As the word of God says in Mark 5:26- She had endured a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all that she had. Yet instead of getting better, she grew worse. Why are we trying to fix ourselves when we don't have the power to do so.When by right we are corrupt by nature. AS the word of God says in Psalm 51:5-
Look, I was guilty of sin from birth,
a sinner the moment my mother conceived me. We need to stop acting like we can change ourselves and those around us. We cannot change ourselves, it only the Power of God that can change a corrupt sinner into a rigtheous person. AS the word of God says in 2 Corinthians 3:17Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is present, there is freedom. 18And we all, with unveiled faces reflecting the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another, which is from the Lord, who is the Spirit. The Grace of God will never work on you as long as you are trying to deliever yourself in your own strength. As the word of God says in Galatians 5:4-You who are trying to be declared righteous by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace! This self effort, is nothing but leading us to be defeated , and having us frustrated. And feeling more harden then trusting in the grace of God that is available with every failure, and every sin and every mistake etc. AS the word of God says in Romans 5:20- Now the law came in so that the transgression may increase, but where sin increased, grace multiplied all the more, . The more we trust in ourselves the more we are missing out on our spirutal blessings. AS the word of God says in Jeremiah 17:5-
The Lord says,
“I will put a curse on people
who trust in mere human beings,
who depend on mere flesh and blood for their strength,
and whose hearts have turned away from the Lord.
6They will be like a shrub in the desert.
They will not experience good things even when they happen.
It will be as though they were growing in the desert,
in a salt land where no one can live. Is that not what lead Adam to live in self effort. AS the word of God says in Genesis 3: 17-
But to Adam he said,
“Because you obeyed your wife
and ate from the tree about which I commanded you,
‘You must not eat from it,’
cursed is the ground thanks to you;
in painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life. I do not think Jesus is calling us to a hardship anymore but rest for our souls. AS the word of God says in Matthew 11: 28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.WHatever you are going through , trust in Him to change you ,no matter if the sign has taken place right away. The Lord Jesus will change you if you believe.Jesus bless you all.
If you want to have a relationship with Jesus say this prayer: Lord Jesus I believe you died on the cross for a corrupt sinner like me.I come to you to believe that you have taken all my sins away and now mark me with your righteousness.I believe its you who will change me and not myself. I believe you will send me the Comforter in Jesus Name. amen.
Praise God you are a new creation In Jesus Name.Go to a God fearing church, Get a Bible that you can understand . Live your life eating the word and walking in the word of God and fellowship with the body of Christ. Jesus bless you on your journey.
Prayer to come out of self effort. Lord Jesus I know that I cannot change myself. So I declare that it is no longer I who live by you who lives in me. I live this life in my body by faith in you .Knowing that you love me. ANd because you love me, hope does not disappoint. I chose to believe the truth that I can be change, even if my healing does not come right away. Hope never fails, love never fails and neither does faith. I know that I am a new creation in Christ Jesus and all the old things have passed away.IN Jesus Name.Praise Jesus forever changing me.Amen
Meditate on Scripture in Philippians 1:6- being confident of this very thing, that he which began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Jesus Christ
