The Holy Spirit fills us, empowers us and is working perfectly to accomplish that which is for our good and God’s glory. Thankfully, we are not robots, and God allows us to be co-creators and partners with him in accomplishing his will in earth (your life) as it is in heaven. It is a privilege to not only participate in this exciting process, but to have guidelines spelled out in God’s Word of what we can do ourselves.
- Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven (Matt. 6:20)
- Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another (Mark 9:50)
- Yield yourselves unto God (Rom. 6:13)
- Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith (2 Cor. 13:5)
- Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs (Eph. 5:19)
- Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God (Eph. 5:21)
- Submit yourselves therefore to God (James 4:7)
- Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord (James 4:10)
- Keep yourselves from idols (1 John 5:21)
- Building up yourselves on your most holy faith (Jude 1:20)
- Keep yourself in the love of God (Jude 1:21)
Most importantly, we know we can do ALL things through Christ! He empowers us to be all that we were created to become! Such bliss!
