Point it out!
Hello blog readers,
I want to share something with everyone on their Christian walk. I’m learning to understand the importance of giving God my time. In prayer, in giving to others, in confessing my sins, in study, in worship — my time with God is of great value. The truth is, I need Him more than He needs me! Everything I need is in Him. Wisdom, patience, forgiveness, love. And without Him, I’m pretty wretched. We all are.
One thing I’m learning is that He doesn’t allow me to be comfortable in sin. I’m finding out that the Lord has no problem convicting my heart. The other day, I saw a quote that read, “Admitting you have a problem is the first step in fixing the problem.”
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Makes sense that God would point out what areas need fixing. And frankly, I need Him to point it out! He wants us to live abundantly – not as slaves to our sin.
Psalm 107:14 He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness, and broke away their chains.
If you find yourself noticing plenty of areas within you that need fixing, don’t be discouraged. Know that God is working.
Philippians 2:13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
