QUOTES ON TOP

You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

GHG SHORT DEVOTIONALS - 16 (GIVE PRIORITY TO GOD'S WILL IN YOUR LIFE)

And it happened when He was in a certain city, that behold, a man who was full of leprosy saw Jesus; and he fell on his face and implored Him, saying, "Lord, if you are willing, You can make me clean."- Luke 5:12

What a wonderful prayer this leper made! He is a leper. Bible says He was full of leprosy. He was thrown out from the society. No one wanted him. He was alone in a very desperate state. He never led a normal life. He needs a healing. He is desperately in need of healing. He believed that Jesus could heal him and so he came running to Jesus and fell on his face and begged Jesus. 

But the prayer was not a normal prayer. He should have prayed like Lord, heal me. He never prayed like that though he was in a desperate state. Even in that desperate state, that leper made a very beautiful prayer putting God’s will in front and his desire behind. He said Lord, if you are willing, make me clean. A submissive prayer completely surrendered to God’s will. A healing touch of Jesus would change his life completely. He knew that. But he gave importance to God’s will.

1.      How are we praying today? Are we putting our desperate needs before God’s will? Are we praying in a selfish way? Today God wants us to surrender to His will completely.

Jesus prayer was recorded in Luke 22:42 in which He had put God’s will in priority than His own wish. “…Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” 


2.      You might be in a tough situation. You might be carrying a burden that you can’t able to bear. You need a miracle desperately. So you might be praying for it. But today Holy Spirit wanted me to say to you that you should pray for the fulfilment of God’s will in your life and not for the fulfilment of your wish. Your prayer should change. Do not run behind worldly blessings. Run for the fulfilment of God’s will in your life. God will definitely give you what you need and also you will be a blessing to many. God wants you to know that you are called for a special purpose.
