John 1:14, "And the WORD became flesh and dwelt among us,...full of Grace and Truth." I can "GIVE" you a text telling you I am praying for you or I can "COME" to you and pray with you. If I come to you, it is much more personal. Grace (unmerited Favor) and Truth come together through the person JESUS CHRIST. Grace is not a doctrine or teaching; GRACE is personal, it is JESUS! JESUS did not come to give more laws, HE came to "bring" GRACE, which is HIS Truth. JESUS came down to where we are to lift us up to where HE is! What does all of this mean? Romans 8:1, "Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in CHRIST JESUS." We have the power of CHRIST to rise above our temptations and be in our righteous identity in CHRIST. How can we stop our temptations? At the very moment it comes, confess that you are the righteousness of GOD in CHRIST JESUS! You may not be able to stop the birds from flying over you, but you can certainly stop a bird from building a nest on your head. PRAYER - ABBA FATHER, thank YOU that JESUS came to set me free of bondage and sin. THOUGHT - I am lifted up with JESUS because of HIS Grace and Truth. MEDITATION (remember Meditation is to speak out loud) - The HOLY SPIRIT quickens me to be an "over-comer", I am a conqueror . REFLECTION - The HOLY SPIRIT will guide me in triumph over every challenge today. HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH, I AM FORGIVEN, I HAVE NO DOUBTS, I HAVE HIS POWER! AMEN.
I pray today that you realize you are HIS, just focus on HIM and expect miracles of faith. Remember Grace and Truth are personal!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
