I repent of pride every day and ask him to purify my heart and motives. I realize, I have had
underhandedness, the methods and arts that men hide through shame
I can sit in church and
their clothes their hairdos,
their apparent lack of engagement in the service,
people’s clothes in Walmart,
critical judging of others anywhere I am.
I can find myself jealous of others of their gifts or positions in church. All kinds of impure thoughts and motives that must be brought under control to the Glory of God our Father.
I am submitting that to Jesus Christ for him to purify my heart and motives. We have assumed it is our thoughts, in our head and we can can allow them to run rampant and unrestrained. But our Father sees, hears and knows everything that is going through our mind. He requires love. Without we are only a noise, an annoying noise.
2 Corinthians 4:2 AMPC
We have renounced disgraceful ways (secret thoughts, feelings, desires and underhandedness, the methods and arts that men hide through shame); we refuse to deal craftily (to practice trickery and cunning) or to adulterate or handle dishonestly the Word of God, but we state the truth openly (clearly and candidly). And so we commend ourselves in the sight and presence of God to every man’s conscience.
We must bring every high thing (thought) into submissions that exalts itself above the knowledge of God and take it captive. Our Papa wants us to be a loving people who see through His eyes of Love.
2 Cor 10: 5 We are destroying arguments and all arrogance raised against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,
THIS IS NOT ANOTHER COMPILATION OF SCRIPTURE! THIS IS A CRY OUT TO WHOSOVER WILL READ THAT WE ARE ENTERING INTO A NEW ERA AND THE LORD IS SWEEPING THROUGH THE CHURCH. HE WILL HAVE A SPOTLESS BRIDE FOR HIS SON.
