Prayer Challenge

I want to ask you to say this prayer out loud, if possible.

“I belong to God. I am a holy vessel because I have the Holy Spirit of the Living God. The Lord of Heaven and earth has said to me; “I declare you holy!”. I commit to start believing what He says. I AM HOLY! Remind me daily, Spirit of the Living God, to treat myself as holy, open my eyes to every scheme of The Enemy to treat me as if I'm not. You, God, are Holy. Your word is the truth. This day Father, I chose to believe you! I ask this in the mighty name of your son Jesus Christ, who died on a cross for me so that I could be a coheir to the kingdom of God. Amen”

Psalm of the Week - 119:26 - August 10, 2015

Psalm 119:26 NIV
I gave an account of my ways and you answered me; teach me your decrees.

"While the souls of the children of this world cleave to the earth as their portion, the children of light are greatly burdened, because of the remains of carnal affections in their hearts...We can talk of the wonders of redeeming love, when we understand the way of God's precepts, and walk in that way."                           Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary
 Children of light. I love that phrase! I am a child of light. You are a child of light. We are children of light because we gave ourselves to Jesus Christ. Can you see yourself as a glowing child of light, filled with the Holy Spirit? You should, because that is who you are through Jesus Christ. I LOVE it! 

Carnal affections, fleshly desires, satisfying the physical body, satisfying the flesh all mean the same thing. The old person we were before we gave ourselves to Jesus is still trying to pull us down. 

We fight that by asking God to teach us the Bible and what it means. Ask God for understanding, or enlightenment. The indwelling Holy Spirit will guide you. We have God and Jesus in heaven,  BUT we also have been given the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth to guide us to a greater understanding of the Bible (John 14:16-17)
