I’ve “been meaning” to have a Spiritual Journal (private) and writings (public) via a blog for some time, but like everything in this last decade the tyranny of the urgent, the seeming importance of things much less important have taken precedence, and it is Sin as i have not sought God with all my whole heart mind and strength but often pursued idols – things that were mostly “good” in the natural but where not where my treasure should have been.
I feel for a decade I have been asleep and growing ever more weary but I’ve also moved further from personal legalism ,where how much i accepted myself was how good i felt i was doing spiritually , to a dynamic experience of God’s grace.
This is a RE:SET – setting my focus on pursuit of God. It may be a day in many, and it doesn’t mean that I’m , on my own strength , going to be great and faithful to God in all ways which of course I’m not capable of anyway. Everyday really is a reset because His mercies are new every morning, (lam 3:22-23) … Great is his faithfulness. And this is what it is about HIS FAITHFULNESS.
Hebrews 12:2 says … Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, Not only my saviour who founded (or authored as many translations say) my faith, but he is the perfecter of my faith. He is the one who is leading me in sanctification and transformation and its his faithfulness.
years ago in the prophecy I received at my baptism a message that the Lord wants to sow back into my life faithfulness.
I’m excited that he is doing that by his sovereign grace. Before i thought it was a standard i had to live up to, by my own strength, cause though God saved me, i felt he was disappointed in me, but not now i have a greater freedom in his grace and acceptance.
