Oh Lord, I pray that people will learn what it means to obey You. To not just say they believe in You, Jesus, but also do as You say. To come to You with their whole heart for salvation, not just a portion of it. God, all I hope for is to have Your presence in my everyday life. I know that this is impossible when sin abounds. You have made this clear to me, God, that without going all in, I am a slave to sin and what the lustful passions of my flesh desire. Lord, I am honored and blessed to know that You are there for me now. I have done some terrible things and I should have been cast off forever. Thankfully, Your mercy endures forever and my cries were heard. It is so wonderful to know that I am in a place where Your Spirit abounds. To be led by You and not the flesh is what truly makes me happy. I pray that others who say they are in the faith will mean it and be saved. I love You, Jesus. I give You my life, heart, mind, and strength. Amen.
Psalm 60:11,12 (KJV)
11 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
12 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
If we are willfully disobedient to God, He casts us off. We are scattered along with the wicked in this darkened world.
