Helplessness comes from standing in the pride and belief that I am in control and can take charge of the experiences of life that are thrown at me throughout the year. I need to take care of others. I need to change the way others are acting. I need to change my sensitive spirit. I need to stop being hurt by others words. I need to hurt others as much as they are hurting me. I need to stop thinking negative thoughts about myself and others. I need…. I am a believing Christian. I do good things. I read my Bible. I pray… Again the ‘I’ disease!
When did the ‘I’ disease invade my spirit? What have I done to fail in my belief that Jesus is King? How did I forget He takes care of my circumstances and me? Who is bigger than God? Where have taken God’s power?
In Ephesians 3:20 we see His sovereignty over our lives, not in our own ability but in His. He is able! His power is at work in us! Let down those constraints that we place on ourselves and pick up the power that He has already placed in us.
Today I begin the first full week of the New Year accepting the Power that Christ has put in me to be able to live the Immeasurably More that He wants to accomplish in and through me. Watch out world His glory is going to be put on display!
Let’s make this year a year of adventure with Christ. Giving His Holy Spirit free space to roam within us, His power working through us, allowing Him to do immeasurably more for His glory.
Lord heal me of my ‘I’ disease. You have free reign over my spirit. In this adventurous journey, change and mold me to be more Christ-like. Speak to me in new ways through your Word. May your Spirit to do more than one could ask or imagine.
