Oh WOW! ! ! ! Now in my last post we learned about being the fragrance of Christ, this time we see that we are tablets of flesh written on by the Spirit of the living God! How exciting. . . . or scary is that! God wants to turn us into walking, talking letters of Him! Our lives should be examples of Christ and His life! Now that is a pretty tall order, but with God anything is possible! These things are manifested through our hearts, so if we want to know where we are in our journey of being a living testimony. . . . we must reflect and look at the condition of our hearts! What is in my heart today? Is it filled with the love of Christ, not boastful or prideful? Is my heart pure, free from unforgiveness, anger, and wrath? This is where the scary part comes in! Am I living this day in the mindset of Christ. . . . or the mindset of sin? Every day I have a choice. . . . .every minute I have a choice. . . . . where is my heart. . . . what is my tablet saying? Yikes! ! ! ! ! One thing I do know for sure. . . . . when I am in the Word of God and in the Spirit of prayer as I am supposed to be. . . . there He is also, writing through His Spirit on the tablet of my life. . . . . now that is AMAZING! ! !
~Father God, I want to start by asking You to forgive me for allowing pride, anger, fear, and other things to often ruin my ability to honor You and Your Son Jesus for all You have done for me! I am so sorry that my tablet of flesh has been defiled with things that do not honor You and the sacrifice that You have made for me! Father, I pray that You will lead, guide, and direct my every step that I may be a living letter of Your love, grace, and peace! I also know Lord that as I allow You to write on my heart and my flesh. . . . there will be those who find me offensive for as You showed me before. . . . as I am being diffused by Your sweet fragrance. . . . those who are lost will smell death and destruction! I pray that even though they smell this. . . . .that the Words You have written on the tablet of my life as a living letter of Christ will be seen, understood and comprehended so that they may find Christ in their lives and start to smell the beautiful aroma of You! I pray that as I go day by day. . . . You will infuse me with Your peace, knowledge, and most of all wisdom so that I will not fail YOU! ! ! ! ! I often feel as if I fail others, but ultimately it is You that I need to please, not man. I thank You Father for the many blessings You have placed in and on my life! I pray Father that You will use me to the fullest extent so that one day You will look at me and say," Well done my good and faithful servant!" ! Thank You again Father for the friends and family that You have given me in my life! Thank You for the talents and abilities You have given me and help me to use them to the best of my ability to bring honor and glory to You! I ask all of these things in the precious name of Jesus. . . . . Amen! ! ! ! ! !~
