Now that we talked about words and the importance of lining our prayer lives up with the Word and focusing on Jesus and not ourselves or our circumstances, and believing that God made us amazing, we can go back to 1 Corinthians 5:17.
We are new creatures in Christ, no longer wanting to be our former selves, we have a new spirit aligned with the Holy Spirit. A spirit that hungers and thirsts after the righteousness of God that He has imparted to us.
Lying should not come naturally now, we have respect for ourselves and others, the thought of stealing or harming someone is not part of us. We are not under the law, but under grace. And if you follow Jesus’ command to love we are new creatures.
We are graceful butterflies setting out to worship our precious Lord. the past is The past and we are to let it go and look forward in Him. We seek His face and it will shine on us, if the enemy comes in thought or trial, cast the thought or imagination out with the Word, replace all the negative with the confidence in Christ.
I once read that arrogance smirks but confidence smiles. I know that is true first hand having been scoffed at with that smirk. The smiling confidence of a graceful woman of God will slap that grin off the devil, as much as we might feel like that toward people, it is better for us to turn the other cheek and keep that quiet composure that only Jesus can bring out.
Okay believers and butterflies, let’s dance to the peaceful worship of a Lord who bends to listen and rejoices over is in song. Rebecca Jones
