We learned about God’s Process in “In Search Of My Soul Mate.” From God’s Process comes Dominion Power. Dominion Power is “the mark” the following Scripture is referring to:
“I press toward the mark of the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:14)
One of the aspects of Dominion Power is the Mind of Christ. The Mind of Christ is to sees things as God sees them. This comes from renewing our mind. The best mind renewal is the Word of God, which is the Mind of Christ:
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)
Over the years if something touched my spirit, made things make sense or it was just something positive I wrote it down. At first the Holy Spirit had me read them weekly. Now I read them as needed. If you recognize something you said Thank You for being a blessing in our lives.
This is a Prayer in “GOD’S SYSTEM – MIND RENEWAL:”
Father, In The Precious Name of Jesus. I Thank You for blessing me with all spiritual blessings in Heavenly places in Christ Jesus. You have chosen me before the foundation of the world to be holy and without blame before You in love. I have been redeemed through the precious blood of Jesus, and forgiven for all of my sins according to the riches of Your Grace.
Father, You have abounded toward me wisdom and prudence. You have sealed me with Your Holy Spirit of promise. And now righteous Father, I pray that my eyes will be enlightened so that I may know what is the hope of Your calling, and what is the riches of Your Glory. I pray You will strengthen me with might by Your Spirit in my inner man. That Christ may dwell in my heart by faith, so that I will be rooted and grounded in love, and I will be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, length, depth and height of Your love. And bless me to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge so that I might be filled with all the fullness of God.
Father, I pray You will help me to walk worthy of the Lord. Being pleasing and fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God. Strengthen me with all might according to Your glorious power unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness. I Thank You again for granting this petition based upon Your Word. I will Praise You, and give You all the Honor and the Glory. In Jesus Name. Amen.
I had put the above in my “Bible Study: Colossians 1” Blog, but it made the Blog too long. The prayer started in Ephesians and ended in Colossians. Thinking about how to continue this Blog as I was walking this morning at the mall I started thinking about Christmas.
I do not do Christmas. I was already on the fence about Christmas. Jesus has been removed from Christmas like God has been removed from everything else. The last time I did Christmas is when I fell off the fence. The last time I did Christmas was I was invited to a families’ home to join in their Christmas celebration.
The family is really big on Christmas. The house was decorated from top to bottom looking like a Winter Wonderland. The tree was beautifully decorated. There were so many presents people could barely walk through the living room.
The family did a name exchange. From what I was hearing one of the siblings wanted a car for Christmas. The sibling that had her name brought a matchbox car as her present. I thought it was cute.
When she opened it she said, “What the “F—k” is this” and the performance began. She went off saying how much she had done for her all year along. Trying to calm her down the sibling that had given her the car ran into the bedroom telling her she was just playing and handed her the real gift she had brought for her, which was very nice.
Even if she felt that way there were guest in the house. If it upset her that bad she should have taken her to the bedroom and said what she said there. Better yet she could have waited until they got home because they live together. After that I was done with Christmas.
I say “Merry Christmas” to everyone. Jesus is the Reason for the Season. “Happy Holidays” is just removing Jesus even more. I am so glad when Christmas is finally over. I am not saying there is something wrong with celebrating Christmas. Anything that brings people together is always wonderful. The Spirit of Christmas is Jesus, but unfortunately people have turn that Spirit into materialism and commercialism.
Christmas is Jesus’ Birthday. Actually He is the only One that should be getting a gift. The best gift you can give Jesus is YOU. I love Pinterest. I even have one set up for God’s System Helps Center. One of the Pins were, “Jesus died for me. The least I can do is live for him.”
As for me Christmas, Birthday, Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day are every day. When I see something I think someone would like I buy it then and give it to them when I see them so they can enjoy it now. If you have not given your life to God do so today. It starts by believing in your Heart and saying the following. This is the greatest gift you can give to Jesus, yourself and your family:
Jesus, I confess I am a sinner. I believe You are the Son of God and You died on The Cross and rose on the Third day. Cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Forgive me of my sins. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit so He can lead me to Your Perfect Will. Thank You for calling me. Amen and Amen
My daily Bible reading is the True Spirit of Christmas for Everyday:
“That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words. For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ. As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.” (Colossians 2:2-19)
