Notice Peter’s answer, it definitely is scripturally true. The Christ, the Messiah, the One God would send. The Lord gave Peter spiritual revelation of who Jesus really was, even though Peter didn’t understand the full impact and meaning of this truth. This, my dear friends, is the revelation you and I need to receive as well. This isn’t textbook knowledge. Yes, we do need to know the Scriptures as the foundation on which the spiritual revelation must be built. But without the spiritual revelation, the Word of God remains the logos Word, a written word that is good and has good instruction but has no life in itself. It is a good moral guide but it will not bring eternal life, joy, grace, compassion, mercy, love or salvation from the Lord into our hearts. The spiritual revelation turns the “Word of God” into the rhema which makes it alive and delivers spiritual truth and understanding that transforms us. It is the Spirit of God who brings spiritual revelation to your heart making God’s Word come alive. John16:13, "But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.”
Let’s look at a simple illustration. One of the Ten Commandments is, "You shall not murder.” (Exodus 20:13) Someone without spiritual revelation just hears in their minds someone imposing their own desires and rules upon them. In other words, someone in authority telling them what they can and cannot do. They may even agree that the “law” is good but they don’t care that the “law” protects them as well as others, they see it as bad because they resent someone else telling them what is right or wrong. We see this all around us today. Unless they are the ones “setting the rules” they will be in protest and oppose everything and everyone in authority. They are their own god.
A person with spiritual understanding is filled with the Holy Spirit which has transformed their sin nature to reflect the heart of God. God is love, He is compassionate, He is full of mercy and grace, His desire is for us, He is the righteous Judge. A spirit filled believer sees the value of each person and desires for them to know Jesus. They know that God loves each and every one even though He cannot tolerate sin. Murder to them is taking away a life that God created.
A believer truly understands that without Jesus as his Lord he is a sinner and his sin nature and desires will send him to eternal damnation. A believer has submitted his entire life to the Lord and becomes a bondservant of the Most High God. “For to this end Christ died and lived again, that He might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.” (Romans 14:9) The Lord is his authority and His ways are perfect and the Lord will walk him through each and every situation when he is in right alignment with Him. Please notice that we are not delivered from every situation but God will never leave us or forsake us. "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you.” (Isaiah 43:2) "If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.” (John 12:26) The following words of Jesus brings these Scriptures into full circle and were given to His disciples (past, present and future) to give them encouragement and hope as they faced uncertain days and trials that seemed unending. They are to remind us to keep our eyes on Jesus, our Redeemer who makes all things new for those who love Him. "If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.” (John 14:3) The disciples didn’t understand where Jesus was going that they could not follow at that time, but you and I have been given the precious gift of all the Scriptures to reveal a clear understanding of what Jesus was saying. I don’t know about you, but for me, this Scripture gives me great hope, comfort and strength to continue each day. There are circumstances that seem to overwhelm me and without the blessed assurance of the love of Christ and HIs plans for my life, all would appear bleak. But there is always the encouragement of the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, who reminds me that He not only understands everything I might encounter, He has experienced even more trials than I am going through and has overcome the enemy and won the victory for me! I love Him so much and just have to stop and thank Him so many times during the day. I also have to stop often and just ask Him “What do You want me to do?” “What is the purpose of this?” “How do I respond?” As I stop and wait and listen, I know without a doubt that He is with me and He will show me the way. I am reminded of a verse that helps me daily to walk with Him, “Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.” (Psalms 119:105)
So what does it mean to be in right alignment with the Lord? It is walking in spiritual truth. Only the Holy Spirit can lead us and keep us on the narrow way in obedience with the will of God. Let’s use the Scriptures as our example. When Jesus was crucified the disciples scattered and pretty much went into hiding. They were fearful of both the religious leaders and the Roman authorities. However, I find it very interesting that the women who followed Jesus out of Galilee (Luke 23:55) went to the tomb to see where He was laid so they could return after the Sabbath and wrap His body in spices. There are two things that I find very amazing in this situation. First of all, when Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus took His body they prepared it (quickly) for burial, but they had done so. Secondly, the women planned on preparing His body in a more proper manner but didn’t even seem to consider that they could be placing their lives in danger or that there was a sealed tomb until they were on the way to the tomb. Think about this a moment, their faith was so great that they didn’t even consider they would encounter a problem.
We didn’t hear a lot about these women during Jesus’ ministry but they were the women who provided food and money to support His and the disciple’s needs. They were in the background but not only believed in Him as the Messiah, they didn’t consider the risks involved in this task they set out to do because they fell “in love” with the Lord and truly understood that their lives were not their own. I truly believe that this is why Jesus chose the women to be the ones to first learn that He had risen! “But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared.  And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb,  but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.  While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling clothing;  and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, "Why do you seek the living One among the dead?  "He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee,  saying that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again."  And they remembered His words,  and returned from the tomb and reported all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.  Now they were Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James; also the other women with them were telling these things to the apostles.” (Luke 24:1-10) They were the first earthly messengers of the joyful news that Jesus had risen! But what was the response from the disciples? “But these words appeared to them as nonsense, and they would not believe them.  But Peter got up and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen wrappings only; and he went away to his home, marveling at what had happened.” (Luke 24:11-12) Peter went to his home “marveling”...he was in awe and wonder at what he had seen. It does not say he believed what he saw, it does not say that he remembered what Jesus had told them. He was in amazement. I believe that there was a small spark of hope that had ignited in him. But his guilt was so overwhelming that the flame could not ignite fully.
There are other accounts in the Scriptures of this marvelous event and I would encourage you to read them. They may be a bit different in each account but there is absolutely no conflict when all are considered together and each account has a special insight that the Holy Spirit will reveal to us. Since that isn’t our focus today we won’t address these today. But truly I feel like the Lord is challenging our faith today. Notice that the message given to the women was the Scriptures, nothing added...nothing taken away. Today the pastors, prophets and apostles are making up all kinds of messages that are not taken from Scripture. They are even promoting the “lost words of Jesus” in books written by man that are not included in the Holy Bible. GOD DID NOT FORGET TO TELL HIS FOLLOWERS TO INCLUDE THESE WORKS! While it is true that there are many miracles not included in the Scriptures, they in no way hinder our understanding of what the Holy Spirit lead the writers to reveal. There are no other “messages”, there are no other “secrets” that will impact our walk with the Lord. It is a trick of Satan to divert man’s attention away from the living word of God and deceive him into believing he is missing something important. Sound familiar? Yes, the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden!
The believers in the time of Jesus simply believed and obeyed the teachings of Jesus! They had the Torah, the books of the Prophets and the other writings that taught the same teachings that Jesus shared. The difference? Jesus brought life and understanding to the Scriptures and transformed one’s mind to understand the truth and cause them to become obedient to the Word! Because of man’s desire for fame and recognition, most of our biblical leaders have veered very far from the original scriptures. They have dissected it and made the word fit their desires and thus we are fed apostasy and false doctrine that are leading the sheep to slaughter. I believe that one of the main reasons the believers are so deceived is that they have been taught incorrectly. “Therefore My people go into exile for their lack of knowledge; And their honorable men are famished, And their multitude is parched with thirst.” (Isaiah 5:13) “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1)
The Lord wants to challenge us today to reveal where each of us are standing. Are you standing with the prophets and apostles of today and eating up every word that comes out of their mouths? Do you run to every church or event where they are speaking to hear “a new word”? Do you run up to the altar to receive their anointing? Do you seek them to learn how to heal people?
Do you line up every word you hear being taught with Scripture? Most do not. Most have not even read the Scriptures for themselves. GOD STILL SPEAKS TO US TODAY THROUGH SCRIPTURE!!! Are you even willing to spend the hours in THE WORD and prayer to receive revelation? Or are you content to hear someone else’s interpretation? If this is you, you are going to be greatly deceived and are truly placing your eternal salvation at risk. Why do I say this? If you have based your “belief” on a lie that is not the Word of God, you have not received the eternal life of the Lord Jesus Christ! Read our opening Scripture again, “The prophets prophesy falsely, And the priests rule on their own authority; And My people love it so! But what will you do at the end of it?” (Jeremiah 5:31) "Behold, you are trusting in deceptive words to no avail.” (Jeremiah 7:8) "Even the stork in the sky knows her seasons; and the turtledove and the swift and the thrush observe the time of their migration; But My people do not know The ordinance of the LORD.” (Jeremiah 8:7)
“But what will you do at the end of it?” My dear brothers and sisters that question should bring terror to our hearts! Yes, even to those who are truly committed to Scripture. Why? To ask the Lord to show us if we are in wrong understanding of anything. “Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you--unless indeed you fail the test?” (2 Corinthians 13:5) There is no shame in admitting that you have been taught or believed a wrong teaching. We have all done so at one time or another! Let me share a personal example that may help you understand what I am talking about. I worked for a Christian organization and was required to attend training sessions and was encouraged in those trainings to read “recommended” books. I am a reader so this was not a problem for me. The people teaching these courses were very transparent and compassionate people and had a great desire to help others. One of my directors highly recommended one of the books mentioned in this particular seminar and I ordered it and began reading. What wonderful material! Then there were a couple of words that I had a check in my spirit. Yes, you heard me, a couple of words! Something was wrong but I didn’t know what. I shared my concerns with my spiritual mentor and he began researching the author. The author was a very well respected “Christian” author. However, this author had recently converted to Buddhism and his “new thoughts” had begun appearing in this book that I was reading! Unfortunately, this and many other books written by this author are still considered the top rated books pastors are reading today! Are we humble enough that we can hear the Holy Spirit’s correction? I love the verse in Jeremiah that says, “Correct me, O LORD, but with justice; Not with Your anger, or You will bring me to nothing.” (Jeremiah 10:24) Do you accept the Lord’s discipline? “and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons, "MY SON, DO NOT REGARD LIGHTLY THE DISCIPLINE OF THE LORD, NOR FAINT WHEN YOU ARE REPROVED BY HIM;  FOR THOSE WHOM THE LORD LOVES HE DISCIPLINES, AND HE SCOURGES EVERY SON WHOM HE RECEIVES.  It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline?  But if you are without discipline, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons.” (Hebrews 12:5-8)
No, it doesn’t “feel good” when we are convicted. And it doesn’t “feel good” as we walk through the necessary discipline so that we can be delivered or set free from what had us bound up. But as the Lord walks us through the trial we are experiencing we grow in relationship, character, compassion and love so that when we come out the other side we are changed and the Lord has received the glory! Our lives on this earth are not about us, they are to glorify God. And that is where the church has missed the mark in teaching the truth. Those in the church look and act like those in the world. We live in the same manner and chase after the same desires. Those who say they are saved are in bondage to the same passions as the world’s inhabitants. They are living together without marriage, they practice immorality and sexual promiscuity, they are having children born out of wedlock, and divorce rates are as high among those who say they are saved as it is among the unsaved! Need I continue?
We shouldn’t “feel good” when we are walking apart from God! The good news is that when we turn from our wicked ways and repent, God hears us. When we confess our sins and ask for forgiveness we are washed clean by the blood of Jesus Christ! A transformation (or conversion) can be seen in our lives. We no longer walk and believe that sin is good and doesn’t matter. The Holy Spirit convicts us when we turn away from God and reminds us that we are no longer a citizen of the earth but we now have a new home, an eternal home in the Kingdom of God. His ways now have become our ways and unrighteousness is no longer appealing or acceptable to us "And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin, and righteousness, and judgment.” (John 16:8 ) We are a new creation in Christ! “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Why do we seek God? Is it to get our prayers answered? While God does answer prayers and loves to bless His children, that is not why we should seek God. We seek God because He is God and He is the Sovereign Lord! He created the universe! He took dirt, formed the body of a man and breathed into his nostrils and that dirt became life! While God does “control” the universe, we miss the real truth hidden in that statement. Scripture tells us that all of creation awaits the second coming of Jesus Christ so that the whole of creation can get back to the perfect balance in which the Lord created it! “For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.  For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope  that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.  For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.” (Romans 8:19-22) All of creation desires to obey the commands of God! It is only mankind that is in opposition to the authority of God, not just over their personal lives but they even declare that God has no authority over the oceans, stars, sun, moon, weather, etc.! Is your heart stirring within you? Are you now beginning to see the deception of the world around you? Are you beginning to understand the great divide that we are experiencing in this world? It is truly a spiritual battle between good and evil, between God and Satan. Man cannot save us from the coming battles. IF the people of God truly repent and turn from their wicked ways, God will hear and may delay the coming tribulation. However, only God truly knows man’s heart and whether the outcry we are currently hearing are truly repentance cries because man has realized that he has sinned against God or they are selfish cries that man is desiring delay of the coming tribulation because he thinks he can fix things. The Almighty God is speaking these words to us today just as He spoke them to Israel so many years ago. "Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, each according to his conduct," declares the Lord GOD. "Repent and turn away from all your transgressions, so that iniquity may not become a stumbling block to you.” (Ezekiel 18:30) Are the cries to establish a prophet or an earthly kingdom that espouses the desires of the people who still believe in the principles on which this country was founded? Yes, those were good principles! Yes, this country was established on the right to choose your religious beliefs. Yes, it was founded on the Word of God even though there are those trying to rewrite history and refute this fact. But the question is, what is the motive of man’s heart? Is it God’s Kingdom they truly desire or a kingdom here on earth according to their desires? There is a great difference between the two. Do you understand the differences enough to even know where you stand? Are you being deceived by those who are trying to use this time to establish the one world religion? Are you deceived by those who are believing they will make the world a better place by preparing it for the return of Jesus Christ? Dear ones, PLEASE read the Book of Revelations, neither one of these is scriptural!
The Apostle Paul spoke highly of the Bereans, “Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.” (Acts 17:11) If I had not “examined the Scriptures daily” for many years I would not have had the ability to discern that there was a problem in what I was being taught in those seminars nor in the days ahead, nor will you. The Lord gave this encouragement to the prophet Jeremiah in the following statement, Thus says the LORD, "Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches;  but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things," declares the LORD. (Jeremiah 9:23-24) This is a good place to stop and praise the Lord! “I know, O LORD, that a man's way is not in himself, Nor is it in a man who walks to direct his steps.” (Jeremiah 10:23) Oh Lord, thank You for this reminder that it is You who not only created us but also had a plan for our lives before we were even born! Forgive us Father for walking in the path of wickedness and our own desires. Lead us in Your paths, in the way of everlasting life! (Psalm 139:13-16; Psalm 23:3; Matthew 7:13-14)
The prophets of old heard directly from God to give warning to the people. If you carefully read all the books of the Old Covenant you will see that their messages were consistent with the Word of God in the Torah writings. The prophecies that have not been fulfilled were given to warn for the distant future. Today we are seeing many of those being fulfilled. We NEVER see or hear the apostles in the New Testament giving a NEW prophecy. They taught us how to interpret the Scriptures to see fulfillment and application for our lives. There is no one who has been called to interpret THEIR PERSONAL IDEAS (which will not be in agreement with the scriptures but they will declare their dreams and visions are from God) of how those prophecies are going to be fulfilled!
Does God still speak today? Absolutely! Does He give us warnings? Yes, He does. Does He give us understanding of the times? Again, I believe He does. Does that mean that everyone of us who receives a dream is called to shout it out to the world via YouTube or Vimeo or even Facebook? We have a major problem today. The majority of prophets and apostles of today have been appointed by man and not God. You might ask how can I make such a judgment? Very, very many make prophesies that don’t come true. Just because we are blessed by God with His insight doesn’t make us prophets or apostles! Sometimes God shares with us because He loves us and enjoys our relationship and is entrusting us with the task of prayer over the issue. Write it down and continue to pray over the situation as the Holy Spirit leads. Don’t be one of these self appointed “prophets/apostles”. They have a dream and they are off and running and stirring up the masses and one says one thing and another says another thing that is in conflict. What do you have? Total confusion! That is not God! That is Satan. Scripture tells us that Satan clothes himself as an angel of light so as to deceive. “No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” (2 Corinthians 11:14) "Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” (Matthew 7:15) Could Jesus have given any warning more clear to warn us?
A prophet of today is to interpret the Scriptures ACCORDING TO SCRIPTURE, not add to the Scriptures! “I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book;  and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book.” (Revelation 22:18-19)
Today many of those apostles and prophets are also the pastors of the churches. What does God say to the shepherds who lead the flock astray? A lot! "Wail, you shepherds, and cry; And wallow in ashes, you masters of the flock; For the days of your slaughter and your dispersions have come, And you will fall like a choice vessel.  "Flight will perish from the shepherds, And escape from the masters of the flock.  "Hear the sound of the cry of the shepherds, And the wailing of the masters of the flock! For the LORD is destroying their pasture,  "And the peaceful folds are made silent Because of the fierce anger of the LORD.  "He has left His hiding place like the lion; For their land has become a horror Because of the fierceness of the oppressing sword And because of His fierce anger." (Jeremiah 25:34-38)
“And the dogs are greedy, they are not satisfied. And they are shepherds who have no understanding; They have all turned to their own way, Each one to his unjust gain, to the last one.” (Isaiah 56:11) "Many shepherds have ruined My vineyard, They have trampled down My field; They have made My pleasant field A desolate wilderness.” (Jeremiah 12:10) "Woe to the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the sheep of My pasture!" declares the LORD.” (Jeremiah 23:1) Therefore thus says the LORD God of Israel concerning the shepherds who are tending My people: "You have scattered My flock and driven them away, and have not attended to them; behold, I am about to attend to you for the evil of your deeds," declares the LORD. (Jeremiah 23:2) "My people have become lost sheep; Their shepherds have led them astray. They have made them turn aside on the mountains; They have gone along from mountain to hill And have forgotten their resting place.” (Jeremiah 50:6) "Woe to the worthless shepherd Who leaves the flock! A sword will be on his arm And on his right eye! His arm will be totally withered And his right eye will be blind." (Zechariah 11:17)
Are you beginning to receive insight? Don’t turn away because these Scriptures are from the Old Testament. Jesus declared in Matthew 5:17-18, speaking about the Hebrew Scriptures, "Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill. "For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass away from the Law, until all is accomplished.” Not all has been accomplished or fulfilled from the Hebrew Scriptures concerning end times. So the Hebrew Scriptures are vital for us today. Jesus made that very clear in those two verses. “I know that everything God does will remain forever; there is nothing to add to it and there is nothing to take from it, for God has so worked that men should fear Him.  That which is has been already and that which will be has already been, for God seeks what has passed by.” (Ecclesiastes 3:14-15) “The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.” (Isaiah 40:8) “So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11) "As for Me, this is My covenant with them," says the LORD: "My Spirit which is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your offspring, nor from the mouth of your offspring's offspring," says the LORD, "from now and forever." (Isaiah 59:21) God does not change!
“But what will you do at the end of it?” Just because the pastors, prophets and apostles are leading the sheep to slaughter does not take any the personal responsibility of each believer to seek out the truth for themselves. The body of believers today have made it very easy to be taken captive and lead astray. What I am about to say is not meant to condemn, but it is the truth that will hopefully bring conviction by the Holy Spirit and cause those asleep to wake up and repent! IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO BE IN THE SCRIPTURES AND IN PRAYER AND IN THE SPIRIT TO HEAR FROM THE LORD! NOTHING REPLACES YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO BE IN A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD! Without this personal relationship you will not know the voice of the Holy Spirit nor know how to discern the truth from the lie.
My prayer is that you will commit your life to Him because you are willing to admit that inside there is a void which cannot be filled with anything this world has to offer. The only time there is peace in your soul is when you are filled with the Words of Life!
My prayer is that you will learn to trust the Lord Jesus Christ as the Cornerstone and you will no longer be lukewarm or satisfied listening to false teachings and apostasy. I pray that you will flee from the “high places” of worship that have become so popular and instead you will seek the Living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. You will no longer be satisfied to take a scripture and make a doctrine out of it but to take the time to search out the whole of Scripture and learn the truth. Do not be like those who have turned a deaf ear to the Lord. Listen to His words spoken through the prophet Jeremiah, "... But My people do not know The ordinance of the LORD.” (Jeremiah 8:7) Instead, seek Him alone! The Lord has told us in many different Scriptures what we are to seek and how to walk in His ways. But the last sentence of this verse unfortunately applies to the church of today as much as it did to the Israelites in the day of Jeremiah, Thus says the LORD, "Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, Where the good way is, and walk in it; And you will find rest for your souls. But they said, `We will not walk in it.'” (Jeremiah 6:16) Will you?
“You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard lest, being carried away by the error of unprincipled men, you fall from your own steadfastness, 18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him [be] the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.” (2 Peter 3:17)
Abba Father, Thank You that You challenge us continuously in Your Word! Like Moses, my desire is to “know You”! "Now therefore, I pray You, if I have found favor in Your sight, let me know Your ways that I may know You, so that I may find favor in Your sight. Consider too, that this nation is Your people." (Exodus 33:13) Thank You that like Moses, You have revealed Yourself to us through Your Son Jesus Christ and You have given us the gift of the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us in all our ways. Let us not be as the children of Israel who were unwilling to have You speak directly with them but wanted You to speak to Moses and then they would obey the words spoken by Moses. The deception in their hearts were evil in Your sight. I pray for those who are carrying that same spirit today. I pray for an awakening of their spirits to begin to seek You, the Living God, the Giver of Life, the Eternal One. I pray that the eyes of their heart would be open to see the deception of following man. I pray for a hunger and thirst to overpower them and for a desire to know You would become as a fire in their souls.
Lord, I need You more and more each day. I desire to worship You and to honor You in all that I do. My greatest desire is to know You intimately and to be a vessel that You can use. I bow my knees before You and thank You with all of my heart. All this I pray in the blessed name of Jesus Christ, the One who is, who was and who is to come! Amen!
