If I Take My Eyes off of YOU
What I have learned
I have learned if I take my eyes off of our Lord I get into so much trouble.
I have been told that I live in a fantasy world so what have I learned from this? Not to live in a fantasy world and to be grateful for what I got.
All I can say is I have peace now.
We all make mistakes but we have a forgiving Lord that loves us and we are saved by grace.
I have a husband that loves me. He has made a lot of mistakes and so have I.
I have to admit I have been unhappy for so long, and I had left My Lord out of the picture and that’s what made me unhappy. But it was all my own doing. I can’t blame anyone except myself.
The Law of Empowerment:
God Changes us from the inside out.
Romans 5: 12:21
God’s leadership is transformational. Paul carefully compares and contrasts Adams work with Christ’s and shows the fundamental changes God makes in us. He radically and permanently changes His people from the inside out.
God never demands conduct that he doesn’t first empower His followers to achieve.
Romans provide a virtual survey of New Testament theology and of God’s empowering leadership:
He frees us from chains, stains, and pain of the past.
He embraces us and lifts us up to reign with HIM.
He gives us wise counsel and future direction.
He fills areas where we are weak or lack competence.
5- He Motivates
He is our source of vision, hope and purpose.
6- He regenerates.
He transforms us to live on a higher level by His supernatural resources.
7- He activates.
He commissions us to obey and move forward in His cause.
I belong to you God!
Angels eagerly watch
So ready to catch
The heart broken
God reveal the thought
Open my heart
With God’s revealing Love
When you feel helpless, remember these words.
If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
Whatever your personal leviathan, try doing less resisting and allow God to do more assisting. In rhyme with HIM, “let the Spirit do the work!”
“Powerful God, thank YOU for my weakness, Help me to let go and let YOU do YOUR work in me.
I will make a list to you my Lord of the several areas where I need to give to YOU!
