Called and sustained by grace

But by the grace of God I am what I am,
and His grace toward me was not in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:10

I am who God says I am & not what the devil whispers when I am low.  I am what the Truth in the Word calls me - more than a conqueror - able to do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  I am well able and fully equipped by the power of Almighty God himself living within me!

As I seek after Him and commit all of my way to Him, choosing consciously to lean on God as my foundation and bedrock, He will sustain and carry me, lead and guide me - and as I follow all His direction in humble and glad obedience with a willing and grateful, praise-filled heart, He will uphold me & make it so I shall not stumble or fall.  It is the combination of all these things, the walking in a life wholly surrendered, that enables me to live my very best life in Christ led by the Spirit as God always intended.  And by His grace I am well able ❤️ and only by His grace - not on my own strength or means could I ever live up to this high calling...

But I want to go to the TOP of the mountain!  I don't want to stop halfway & say I've had enough!  Let my hunger for You never go away, my appetite always be with me that I will have a seeker's heart to follow - the yearning to dig in and chase after, to pursue and do the work needful to come after You to the highest place where I can see You face to face. 

Sustain me, O God, to do the good work that my work may be rewarded with the gift of always being ever more aware of Your presence, being drawn infinitely closer day by day as I persist by Your grace at work in me that in this intimate love relationship I may know You, my God - that I may experience all of Your goodness and mercy here in the land of the living - that I may have the revelation of the fullest measure of Your love and joy that I can receive while still here on earth... So that I can then share Your light and love, Your truth and great grace with all whose hearts You have opened - that all would come to know You personally and rejoice before You with songs of gladness - that so many would be saved by receiving Your Son as their Savior, coming to accept the blood of Christ as atonement for their sins that they may stand before You clean and made whole - and that Your Kingdom may be advanced, one by one, until all come to know and worship You in Spirit and in Truth as the one true God of all the heavens and of earth here below.  

Let those of us who know You be so filled with the Spirit that we cannot contain Your love and light that we all might share with at least one the love and hope, the joy and peace of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.  In His Name and for His sake, I lift this prayer.  Amen!  ❤️
