Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
(I John 2:15-16)
We cannot say we are of God, living for God, serving God, being a disciple of Christ etc. and still be in the habits, conducts and activities of the world. There are some truths we have to acknowledge, accept and live by:
→ DEVELOP A PROPER ATTITUDE TOWARD THE WORLD:
* Do not let yourself be spoiled by the philosophies of the world
* Keep yourself unspotted from the world
* Crucify the power of the world
* You can escape the corruption of the world
* You overcome the world by the blood of Jesus and your testimony
→ UNDERSTAND YOUR MISSION IN THE WORLD:
The believer should be a light in a world of darkness, reflecting the glory of God and sharing the good news of the Gospel.
As soldiers in an army sent on a mission in a foreign nation, believers are on a special mission of God in the world.
We know that this is a suffering way, that even as Jesus suffered, we must suffer also. Help us Lord to stay donned in the armour of spiritual warfare and graced with the fruit of Your holy spirit so that in all our ways, we are able to withstand and stand against the influences of evil and be a shining light to a dying world darkened by sin and shame. Help us Lord to be good followers and laborers for You.
In all of our ways, You said Lord, that we are to acknowledge You; that You will direct our path. Lead us and guide us today; allow us to be ambassadors for You, Jesus, remembering at all times that we are walking in the holy spirit with the anointing that You, the sovereign one, the king of kings and Lord of Lords have placed within us.
We ask Lord that You help us to keep our minds stayed on You. Help us to be prayerful in our actions so that we are pleasing in Your sight. There is none greater than You Lord. It was You who sent us Your son to purchase our salvation. We thank You Lord for the comforter, the precious Holy Ghost that You sent to keep us and intercede on our behalf. And with the Holy Ghost and the name of Jesus, we are victorious, we are more than conquerors because there is power in the name of Jesus, that in the name of Jesus there is victory, there is healing, there is salvation. At the name of Jesus, demons flee, yokes are broken, strongholds are cast down, and souls are saved. Through the mighty name of Jesus and the precious Holy Ghost within us, we are more than overcomers, we are conquerors and we are no longer victims – but we are victorious through You!
In the name of Jesus, we plead the blood against everything that is not like You. We ask that You command Your angels to guard us in all our ways; in our comings and in our goings; to protect us from all hurt, harm and danger of those things seen and unseen.
Lift us up in Your righteous hand and help us not to grow weary while doing good, help us not to faint while fighting this fight. Keep us dear Lord; we know that You are able because all power belongs to You!
Give us increased faith, Lord God, when we call on You, to know that You will rescue us, that You will protect us and keep our minds in perfect peace. Help us to remain steadfast in You so that when we call upon You, You will not only hear our cry from above but You’ll answer us, You’ll be with us and deliver us in our times of trouble.
Dear God, we thank You for great and everlasting faithfulness! We thank You for Your goodness and for Your mercy. We know that when we walk in obedience according to Your
word that You will supply every need we have according to Your riches in glory.
We need You, oh God, in our lives. Remember all of those who are suffering both physically and mentally. We pray, oh Lord God that You bring peace and deliverance to those that are
troubled, that You bring comfort to those in sorrow, healing to those who are sick. We pray in the precious name of Jesus that You bind everything that is not like you. Help us O God to keep our minds stayed on You!
And now Lord we pray that You be with us, that You lead us and guide us, give us wisdom and knowledge to speak and act according to Your will; that we may be laborers in Your field; that Your manifested glory be revealed through us dear God.
We ask all these things and we thank You for all things, in Jesus' wonderful name we pray,
Prayerfully, something was said that will bless you and keep you and that your minds will be in perfect peace with the Lord.
In closing know that there is a liberty that God ensures us:
God bless you all!
