Because of Who You Are

The Watered Soul: Because of Who You Are

Dec 3, 2010

Because of Who You Are

Oh precious Father, how I love so. Thank you Lord that you don’t deal with me as my sins deserve. Forgive me for all the times I have failed you, doubted you, or grumbled against the course of my life. For you have been far better to me than I ever could deserve. For you are mighty and sit upon the throne of glory forever. Who am I that you are mindful of me?

 

So many things to be thankful for but today I pause to say thank you for sending your son-Jesus-my risen Savior. And because the Savior rose,

  • I and any other, who trust in his name can rise above those things that attempts to hold us captive.
  • Because He got up we can rise up from the need to please self and others.
  • We can rise above our desires and instead seek your perfect will for our lives. Because He rose, we can rise past old hurts and troubled past. We can walk in the wholeness He provided for us when He received those 39 strikes and the blood came running down.

Because His blood came down, we can walk freely. Thank you for the blood that covers minds today. Lord, silence every voice that speaks contrary to your word. Give us ears to hear you Father and may we not follow after strange shepherds. Give us the discerning mind you promised us in your word. Illuminate our paths today precious Father. For we do not know the right path or the correct course of action but you Lord, the creator of the heavens and earth, knows all things so we turn to you and are attentive to your word.

 

I pray for the body of Christ all over the world. Strengthen those who are suffering persecution for your name sake. May the good news of the gospel be boldly proclaimed across every nation and continent. May the kingdoms of this earth become the kingdom of our great Jehovah God. Let hope spring forth now. Let joy bubble up within us now as we reflect upon your great name-Jesus.

 

I thank you for those you are drawing by your Spirit. Thank you for breaking them free. Free from sin, free from addictions, free from shame, free from bondages. Thank you that it is for freedom that you have set them free. Free to walk according to your call. Free to be who you destined them to be before the earth was formed. Thank you for purpose and choosing me to be one of your dearly loved children. You are everything I need Lord. Love you. In Jesus name, Amen.  

 

 

Wanda

What a beautiful prayer and amazing perspective. If Jesus can rise from the dead then we can certainly rise from the struggles and temptations we face!

Hi Wanda,

Thank you for interceding on behalf of so many. Proclaiming the word of truth that we've been set free. I stand with you in prayer, touching and agreeing with your petition. Praise God! "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed."

To be free from fear, sorrow, worry, and the cares of this life. Free to love God with my whole heart, soul, mind and spirit. Free to love my neighbor as myself.

Thank You Lord, for the freedom You established through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Blessings and peace.

MTJ

Walking in His freedom, paid for already, simply takes my step of walking into it to have it.
