More of Him Less of Me
My fast has begun at 12 midnight, I seem restless in my mind where I am half asleep but not able to rest my mind nor my body. I realize that my flesh is at war with my spirit. So I am awake 3:30 am reading my bible seeking the mind of the Spirit.
Romans 8:1-39 ('…For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spiri tthe things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be .
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot * please God.
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you
PRAYER POINT – Father I give you my mind and I pray that the soulish mind be subject to your will in Jesus name.
Isaiah 61:1-11 (… The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the broken hearted*, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
PRAYER POINT – Thank you father for choosing t use me for your glory and I prayer that I will live an effective life bringing the necessary change in peoples life through your Gospel the way you intended it to be. Amen
Isaiah 58: 1-14 (…' Is not this the fast that I have chosen ? to loose thebands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
5:30 am Going back to bed!
Monday Morning: start with prayer, the whole day is truly a prayer walk even though I have to take care of business. ( I usually settle down towards the evening.)
- Drink water pretty much all day
Consecration: Man does not consecrate himself because he has chosen God. Rather, God is the One who chooses and calls, and then man consecrates himself to Him. Those who consider that they are doing God a favor by forsaking all are but outsiders; they are not consecrated at all. We must realize that our service to God is not a favor or courtesy to God. It is not a matter of offering ourselves to God's work, but a matter of God being gracious to us and giving us a portion of His work. It is God who has given us the glory and the beauty. The Bible tells us that the holy garment of the priest is for glory and beauty (Exo. 28:2). Consecration is God giving us glory and beauty; it is God calling us into His service.
Note: What I have felt led from the Lord is to seek humility Prov. 22:4 'By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.
- Look for scriptures on humility and pray the scriptures into your spirit and ask the Lord for the scripture to come alive within you.
