Quiet Time with Jesus – GROW

Wednesday, 5 March 2017

When we work with ONE heart, we demonstrate His LOVE. When we walk IN CHRIST, we demonstrate His POWER. When we wrestle in PRAYER, we declare WAR against Satan. And when we worship GOD, all heaven declares He is LORD. Hallelujah!


My Prayer: Father God, help us GROW!

Jesus said,

For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
— Matthew 6:14-15

YL: LORD, I am in no position to forgive anybody.

ONLY JESUS can forgive because HE is the PERFECT MAN, the Sacrificial Lamb, who died on the cross bearing all our sins, and in so doing, HE has obtained forgiveness for ALL WHO BELIEVES. Hallelujah!

We are forgiven because of what Jesus did for us. Our old self has died and our new self is born - to live and move and have our being in Him. We want the world to see CHRIST IN US. We want the world to see us as ONE IN CHRIST – the beautiful BRIDE.

LORD, we are not perfect yet… Make us perfect! Amen!

Therefore, help us to GROW in CHRIST: GIVE, RESPOND, OBEY and WORSHIP.

Help us: give without expecting anything in return;

Help us: respond to You continually so that we become more like Christ;

Help us: obey Your commands because before we can teach others to obey everything You have commanded us (Matthew 28:20), we ourselves must first obey;

Help us: worship YOU in spirit and in truth, in everything we do and say;

When we worship YOU in this way, we are declaring war against Satan who lurks around looking for someone to devour.

When we are clothed in YOUR Righteousness (not in self-righteousness), we will be able to resist the devil and stand firm in the faith.

We KNOW that our brothers and sisters are undergoing the same kind of temptations... Father, make us ready at all times to face the enemy - like David faced Goliath. We have no fear because we know that the battle belongs to You.

Almighty GOD, enable us!

Yes! We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us because JESUS HAS OVERCOME! HE HAS RISEN!

Please give us the Spirit of wisdom and revelation so that we may know Him better. We pray that the eyes of our heart may be enlightened in order that we may know the hope to which He has called us, the riches of His glorious inheritance in us, and Your incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of Your mighty strength, which You exerted in Christ when You raised Him from the dead and seated Him at Your right hand in the heavenly realms, FAR ABOVE all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.

You placed ALL THINGS under His feet and appointed Him to be HEAD OVER EVERYTHING for the church, which is His body, the FULLNESS OF HIM WHO FILLS EVERYTHING IN EVERY WAY. Hallelujah! (Ephesians 1)

TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

AMEN!

It is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God - that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 1 Corinthians 1:30
