“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Joel 1-3, and 2 Timothy 1.
This is what “right” looks like: fearless, loving, and self-disciplined.
There is no way in our own strength that we can pull this off. We must be filled with His Spirit.
I believe that I have His Spirit within me. The ongoing issue is, how much of me will I allow His Spirit control?
I look at my behavior and my thoughts for a gauge of His level of control in my life. Those two (behavior/thoughts) betray anything I may be trying to tell myself about my spiritual condition.
What would I be like if my life was flooded with His power, His Love, and His good sense? I dare say that it would be NOTHING like the life I am leading.
How sad it is to know what could be and yet continue to live separated from what could be.
I don’t want to look back at my life wondering why I lived a “lukewarm” life so despised in Revelation.
Solomon pleased God by asking for discernment and the ability to get wrong/right right. I must ask for the same twosome.
“Lord, my life is so lacking. I don’t want a sense of accomplishment. I want a sense that I am riding Your Wave to wherever it takes me. I want the sense of being in Your Will and therein being: fearless for You, loving as You loved me, and able to exhibit Godly discipline in my life. Help me, Father, I beg.”
Are you a lukewarm follower too?
