Purity is not something spoken of much anymore. However, those that love God strive to be pure, as He is pure.
Oh Lord, I pray that we, as believers, will focus on what is most important in life and that is You and Your ways. For Your ways are higher and will lead us to choose what is right and away from the dangers of this world. So may our thoughts be in line with Your ways and not our own any longer. Keep our hands apart from what is wicked and connected to the right people, that You may purify them through Your blood. There are ways that we can do what is right in this fallen and dark world, but we need the Holy Spirit to lead us in order to do so. Therefore, shine down upon us now and cast out every bit of darkness that is left inside of us. You know our bad habits and addictions that are keeping us apart from You and we wish that You would distinguish those things now. We will never do what is right unless You cleanse us. Our desires, Lord, is to have You make a home inside our hearts, that we may walk in Your holiness. We are convicted because of sins and no longer desire to in walk in the ways of the flesh, but in Your light alone. It is my desire to be saved, oh Lord, so take me as I am now and put me on Your path. Then, can I be reborn in the Spirit and be used for Your kingdom. I know that this means giving up some things that I am holding onto, but I am ready now to give up these things, in order to order to serve You completely, my King. Lord, take every ounce of fear from my heart, that I may walk in faith. Take all my guilt and shame and put it upon your shoulders, that I may experience Your peace and joy. I no longer wish to be burdened by the bondage of sin in my life, but to be lifted up in Your holiness. I wish to be made new through Your blood, which was spilt for us on the cross. So come Lord, and cleanse me of all my sin. Make me whole again. I believe in You Lord. I love You. Amen.
Matthew 7:12-14 (KJV)
12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Are you on the path which leads to eternal life, or on the pathway to destruction? Only Jesus can help you find the way to heaven.
The ways of God are made clear to those that desire to follow Him until the end. Knowing that many don’t, we know that such people that do are God’s elect. Continue Reading
