May 11: Lay Down Your Life

Let me start today’s letter by stating, when we follow the book, His Word, the Bible, we will see the outcome of our prayers, our answered prayers according to the very will of God.

Jesus laid down His life for you and for me. We are to lay down our life for Him. What does it mean to lay down your life for Him? As His servants, ALL aspects of self-determination MUST be surrender (turned over) to Him. He is our Lord, our Master. What He wants is all that matters. This is what is meant by “taking up your cross daily”.

Yes, His will is to be our will. You may ask, what is His will? His will for all of us is to be obedient to His Word; a life that is holy, pure, and living a life of righteousness; right living, so we can be in communion with Him.

Yes, when we are obedient to His Word, we are obedient to Him, for the Word and Jesus are one. As we yield and surrender to Him, He has promised to answer our prayers and work in us and bring our wills in agreement with Him, His will. How wonderful this is when our prayers are in agreement with His…they become MOST POWERFUL!

In other words, true faith in God, believing His Word, WILL ALWAYS bring about the promise conceived in your heart. The end result of your faith, that of believing, will be the ability to see the promise fulfilled…it is finished!

Decide what you want from God and get the scriptures (the promise) that definitely promises you these things. Fix the promises written in God’s Word firmly in the heart and not only in the mind and you can say as Jesus states in Mark 11:23-24 For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore, I say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have [them] (KJV). 

Yes, God’s Word has promised to fulfill good things in the life of the believer!
