At Toronto’s airport waiting to board our flight back to Calgary. thank you Lord for an amazing YFL/SFL Canada national congress! You are so awesome!
Do you want to know God’s will in your life? I know there’s a lot of them. There’s SPECIFIC WILLS and UNIVERSAL WILLS. Like specific wills such as what school should you go to, person who you should date/marry, ministry to be involved in, etc.
UNIVERSAL WILLS are wills from God that there’s no room for ‘options.’ Things like prayer, fasting, discipleship, missions etc. Although these are all good questions to ask, I think we need to not look past this one crucial area of our lives. What exactly is God’s UNIVERSAL will in our lives. There’s lotsa’ of em, but there’s this one that I am forsure counts as UNIVERSAL WILL. It’s called PURITY.
PURITY. — It is God’s will that you live a HOLY and PURE life.
PURITY is not an option, it is a matter of OBEDIENCE to God.
You and me, not just pastors, or church leaders, ALL OF US are called to live a PURE life. Don’t get it twisted.
If you’re still struggling with PORN, LUST, MASTURBATION, KILL THAT NOW. Unless you have the area of PURITY down and under control, you have no right to date or even think about getting married. You can’t even lead and control yourself, how exactly are you going to lead your gf/wife?
If you struggle with lust, KILL that. At the same time don’t become an object of lust. Dressing promiscously to get a guy or lowering your standards so you can date the ‘man of your dreams’ won’t make you feel satisfied or happy. Your worth isn’t found in any magazines or tumblr pictures, only in Christ and in His love letters called Holy Scriptures.
God has a plan for you and me, He is ready to use you for His glory. Question is are you ready and willing to be used for His good works? Coz honestly the only thing that’s holding you back from growing and serving is your SIN so die to your old self/flesh everyday and KILL that.
I cried for hours today…realizing just how many broken pieces I have to work on in my own heart ….and I felt so unlovable…and I felt so much pride/bitterness/self-worthlessness/unforgiveness and anger…..And so I cried for hours….
but this sums up what God told me today in that broken moment of sobbing prayer. ♥
