2 Timothy 2:22 (AMP)
“Shun youthful lusts and flee from them, and aim at and pursue righteousness (all that is virtuous and good, right living, conformity to the will of God in thought, word, and deed); [and aim at and pursue] faith, love, [and] peace (harmony and concord with others) in fellowship with all [Christians], who call upon the Lord out of a pure heart.”
What is your focus for 2012? Who and what will you decide to pursue? I will pursue Christ and His righteousness, for He is all I want and all I need. I will seek His very heart, His kingdom and His righteousness, becoming more intimate with Him every step of the way, knowing full well that He is providing me with all I need. (Mt. 6:33)
2 Peter 1:3 (MSG) says,
“Everything that goes into a life of pleasing God has been miraculously given to us by getting to know, personally and intimately, the One who invited us to God. The best invitation we ever received! We were also given absolutely terrific promises to pass on to you—your tickets to participation in the life of God after you turned your back on a world corrupted by lust.”
His word is so clear! He has given us the power it takes to truly live for Him. And in living fully for Him we can receive all His promises, which are Yes and Amen!!
The best revalation I’ve ever had is this…
I can strive and try to be a ‘good’ Christian to the best of my own ability, but all I’m going to get are natural results, or I can abide in Him and BE who He has told me I am in Him and get supernatural results!
This set me free. He really does ALL the work on you if you’ll let Him! So choose to pursue Him today!
