Good Morning Gorgeous,
It’s a brand new day. A fresh new start.
A new day to rise and trust Jesus.
A new day to trust that He is who He says He is.
He will do what He promises to do.
You can rest in His Word and the commands that He gives.
He is a good God. He is for you. He desires to protect you, guide you, and lavish His abundant blessings upon you.
Receiving the fullness of His plans and His protection for your life includes submitting to His ways and rejecting the will of the devil for your life.
Adam and Eve were safe in the garden and the rules God gave them were for their protection and safety. Satan came along and portrayed God as unfair and withholding. He still uses this same tactic today. He attempts to make the scriptures seem outdated, not for us, for a different time in history, and he sells the lie that God’s ways are not best anymore. That times have changed and we can be in charge of our own destiny as long as it feels good to our heart.
Humble means to release your will and receive God’s will. To surrender to Him and recognize He’s Lord and He knows best for you. Become like a trusting innocent child who will follow wholeheartedly.
Humble yourself and RUN to His Arms when:
When you feel tempted to take the easy route that’s short of God’s Word
When you feel like you can’t put something down that you know isn’t good for you
When you feel like just going with culture
When you feel like holiness is just too hard
When you feel like it’s easier to be in control than to surrender your will to God’s
It is written to humble myself before God and Resist the devil. So I will flee into the arms of my Lord. I will give this worry, this desire, this need for total control over to Jesus. He will gently take it and the enemy will flee!
Lord, I surrender it ALL to You today. I humble myself and accept that Your ways are higher than my ways. Your thoughts are higher than my thoughts. I will trust Your Word. All of it..Even the parts that seem unfair or I don’t understand or I haven’t seen yet with my eyes. I will humble my mind, my will, emotions, my dreams and visions and submit my whole body as a living sacrifice unto You. Help me to recognize when the enemy is offering me a cheap counterfeit and to resist him and his plans for my life. Open my eyes to Your Ways Lord. Keep me in Your will over my own. There is safety there.
In Jesus’s Name,
