“In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18 NKJV
Today I’m grateful to God for…”Living By Faith Blog” and his post “Are You Misdiagnosing Your Sin?” By Steve Fuller. He helped me to realize that what I thought was an issue of laziness when it came to reading the Word of God was actually a sin of unbelief.
Thanks to his blog I have repented of that sin and pray that the Holy Spirit work in my heart. I also have started praying along with him …“over Scriptures showing God as my Treasure and the Word as the way to experience Him.” The scriptures I’ve started praying over are; “God promises to provide the Spirit as we hear His Word with faith (Gal 3:5; John 7:38).” and “So I prayed over Scriptures like Psalm 4:6-7; Psalm 16:11; Psalm 19:10; Psalm 119:72; 2Cor 4:6; Phil 3:8-9.” My prayer is like his heart mine will change.
It may take time. But I’m grateful to be made aware of the sin so that I can do something about it and become more of the woman of God that He wants me to be. So even if it is a painful lesson, I think of it as a blessing because I want to be all that my Lord wants of me.
