The top 10 things I know about God - Psalm 118:14

April 30, 2011

Psalm 118:14 The LORD is my strength and my song. He is my savior.

On May 2, 2011 I celebrate five years since the Lord changed my life. As I look back, I realize that these have been the most on-purpose and fulfilling years of my existence. I will be recording the journey in a detailed way so that I will always remember the things God has done for my family, but I want to share the following things that I know for sure.

1. I am not the person I was

2. I have unshakable peace through storms

3. God is real; God is personal

4. God wants to know our hearts and he wants to share his heart with us, consequently Bible study and sharing with believers is vital

5. God eases us into the journey with him

6. If we are serious about passionately serving him, God will make radical changes in us – it’s called sanctification and it’s not easy

7. God will clean up the hurts of our lives so we can be effective in representing him

8. Expect conflict, your own sin nature rearing its ugly head and intense spiritual warfare. He will help us get up and stay connected to him if we're passionate and real with him

9. Our agenda (personal, professional, ministry) will be radically changed to conform to his plans

10. Surrendering ourselves to God’s will is the ultimate sign of strength and not weakness

Words cannot thank the Savior of my soul for all he has done in my life.

Sin on the journey

Before I know it, sin drips from my mouth and floods my mind. Oh the struggle.
Romans 7:22-23 I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free. 
My current struggle is in not easily recognizing the extent of my sinfulness. I can easily preach it, but continuous righteous living eludes me.
Ouch. It hurts. I reveal this because I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul, but the sinner in me wins. It's the same struggle the A…
