“So that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good.” Titus 3:8
(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading – Isaiah 1-3 & Titus 3)
I must live a Godly life.
There is no place for selfishness. That “good” I’m to do must be for others. I am not trying to make things better for myself.
I pray that God will give me His eyes and ears so that I can see and hear in my midst as He does. Sometimes there is deeper meaning to what is going on around me than I can sort out apart from His Holy Spirit.
I pray that God will control my thoughts and words. He knows what is going on in those areas.
I basically want Him in total control of my life. I continue to long for it. I continue to flounder in making it consistently happen. My problem is that I am not flooded with Him. I have tastes. I have sips. I even take an occasional full-sized “drink” of Him. But there is far more that I could intake. I know that I’m missing out as I watch my life have spiritual ups and downs in the midst I am currently in. It should not be that way.
The Bible is verrry clear on behavioral things; I must be completely Godly.
“Lord, I want to be saturated with You. I am obviously not taking in enough of You because my spiritual life is so erratic. At times I am pleased but more often I am embarrassed by the shallowness of it. I need You completely. Invade me. Overwhelm me. I want a full spiritual hit so that I can level off my behavior into a steady Godly pattern. I cannot do it without Your help. I love You, Father.”
