WHATEVER IT TAKES
You must be ruthless in addressing sin in your life! Do whatever it takes to master sin or it will master you. Swallow your pride. Get help. You were meant to bear each other's burdens. You were meant to confess your sins to one another in order to be healed. You were meant to strengthen the weak.
Sometimes you are the one who is weak and sometimes you are the one supporting another. It is all a part of the process of sanctification. Do not refuse the prompting of My Spirit when I bring up an area I want you to address. I know what it takes to make you whole.
Do not make excuses. Do not give in to a fleshly mindset, but yield to Me. Start each day by committing yourself to Me and My ways. Declare "Not my will but Yours, Lord," and "I delight to do Your will." For one day you will be stronger for having persevered through the fire. In that day, you will shine forth as a trophy of grace. Do not give up, My beloved, but do whatever it takes, for the rewards of obedience are great in My Kingdom!
Jeremiah 17:14 Contemporary English Version (CEV)
You, Lord, are the one I praise.
So heal me and rescue me!
Then I will be completely well
and perfectly safe.
Psalm 37:4-5 Living Bible (TLB)
4 Be delighted with the Lord. Then he will give you all your heart’s desires. 5 Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him to help you do it, and he will.
