Depend Upon Jesus

Sunday, May 19, 2013

“Christ has set us free to live a free life!” Galatians 5:1 The Message
Depend Upon Jesus
Proverbs 3:5  “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” 
John 14:1 “Trust in God; trust also in me.”
What does it take for you to trust someone…
What does it take for you to trust Jesus Christ?
Trust comes from deep knowledge and a conscious choice.
Deep Knowledge
John 10:27  “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them and they know me.”
John 8:32 “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
John 7:17 “If anyone chooses  to do God’s will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own.”
Conscious Choice
…you must no longer live as the Gentiles do in the futility of their thinking… Ephesians4:17
Romans 8:38-39 “For I am convinced that [nothing] will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
John 10:3 “He calls his own sheep by name and he leads them out.”
John 16:33 “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Daily Prayer:
Dear Heavenly Father, I praise You and honour You as my Lord.  You are in control of all things.  I thank You that you are always with me and will never leave me nor forsake me. You are the only all powerful and only wise God.  You are kind and loving. I choose not to love the world nor the things in the world, and I crucify the flesh and all its passions. Thank You for the life I now have in Christ.  I ask You to fill me with the Holy Spirit so that I may say no to sin and yes to You. I declare my total dependence. I choose to believe the truth of God’s Word despite what my feelings may say.  I refuse to be discouraged; You are the God of all hope.  Nothing is too difficult for You.  I am confident that You will supply all my needs as I seek to live according to Your Word. I now take my stand against Satan and declare that the evil one cannot touch me.  I choose to put on the full armour of God so that I may be able to stand firm against all the devil’s schemes.  I submit my body as a living and holy sacrifice to You, Lord. By so doing I will be able to prove that Your will is good, acceptable and perfect for me.  In the name of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.  Amen.
