I suspect part of Paul’s ability to be secure in his heart and mind lay in His honest assessment of himself. Paul didn’t judge himself according to himself. I believe he saw himself clear as day. He never lost sight of who he was apart from relationship with his Redeeming Lord. In fact, Paul’s own words were, “chief of sinners”. From that humble position, Paul did not neglect time with the Lord who saved Him. Night and day he prayed. Night and day! Therein lies one of my own revealed stones.Pray for me, dear ones, as Father and I do business concerning the stones in my heart and life. Praise God with me for His Word and its ability to consistently lay truth before us in the Person of Jesus, the written WORD of Life.
Praise Him that in this walk of faith, the call to victory is a grace-saturated process and we can all serve Him with a clear conscience.
My Challenge For you Today:
Go before the LORD. Prostrate yourself before Him. Seek Him for anything that may hinder your time with Him and then seek to destroy that thing, no matter what it cost!
May we all be able to say with Paul, “I am not ashamed, I am serving with a clear conscience.”
