You are learning to walk in a higher level of obedience, and for that I commend you. I long for all of My children to walk in greater light by following the truth of My Word and the prompting of Holy Spirit. I want a relationship based on love, not duty.
Trust that My ways are higher. If your obedience is lacking in any area of your life, it really means that you have bowed down to your way of thinking and believing. Carnal reasoning always spirals downward.
You cannot compartmentalize your life. All sin is an affront to Me for I am holy. Allow Me to have My way fully in you. Then I can use you as a vessel for My Kingdom purposes. Let it be said that the enemy has nothing in you. For My Kingdom is advancing, and through you, I am destroying the works of darkness.
John 14:21 (ESV)
Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”
Romans 5:1-2 English Standard Version (ESV)
1 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
John 14:29-31 The Message (MSG)
29-31 “I’ve told you this ahead of time, before it happens, so that when it does happen, the confirmation will deepen your belief in me. I’ll not be talking with you much more like this because the chief of this godless world is about to attack. But don’t worry—he has nothing on me, no claim on me. But so the world might know how thoroughly I love the Father, I am carrying out my Father’s instructions right down to the last detail.
“Get up. Let’s go. It’s time to leave here.”
