Being purified by God
The more you seek God, the more poison He purges from us. If you don't see that happening in your lives then I'm afraid you aren't growing.
18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble. Proverbs 4
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 1 John 1:7
And God will show you where ignorance is within you. False doctrines. False beliefs, Pride, God will show you what you need to do to be successful in your walk with Him so He can use you more completely. If you don't feel you need to be in His blessings every second of the day then you are deceived. .
It is God who will do it but we have to walk with Him. We have to deny ourselves. Our thoughts. Our wills, THAT is "taking up the cross" and following the Lord. You can't just drop that cross anytime you feel like it... This is basic doctrine here. Baby Christian stuff!! And yet so many don't know this. Or don't want to know. God sees your heart.. You have a little piece of yourself you're not willing to give.. This needs to be purged and that happens as you walk with the Lord every day!
And God will grant you power to overcome and He will replace every bit of darkness within you with His LIGHT which is God's Word.
For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 1 Corinthians 11:31
Judge yourself now through God's Word, and allow yourself to be corrected by God the Father. In Jesus Name. Amen
If you have never repented of your sins and been saved and feel the desire to do so now please say this prayer. This is how I was powerfully saved 20 years ago!
"My Lord and my God, Have mercy on my soul, a sinner, I believe Jesus the Messiah died on the cross and shed His precious blood for the forgiveness of all my sins. I believe God raised Jesus from the dead and Jesus is now on the right hand of God and can hear my prayer at this moment and wants to live through me and give me power to keep His Word. I open up the door of my heart and I invite You into my heart Lord Jesus. Please be my Lord and Savior in every aspect of my life. Thank you God for saving my soul and I vow to serve you with all my heart which is the first and greatest commandment. Amen"
