I Infection

What stands between us and totally serving our LORD?  For me, it is often what I want to happen.  Sometimes, want the credit for volunteering to do a service.  Sometimes, want others to see what a great job I‘ve done.  Obviously, one can see that an “I infection” is creating a barrier between us (me and JESUS).  Since I’m being totally honest here let me say, I’m also totally aware that I am not giving Him total control of all parts in this life.

So then what happens?  How do I make the necessary changes?  Through lots of prayer, asking forgiveness (sometimes begging forgiveness), knowing and claiming His Word.  Matt. 6:33 can be the focus for a prayer like this.  Are we truly seeking His Kingdom and His Righteousness?  Then we can serve Him and know how He wants us to serve Him.

Understand that not just “I infections” get between us and really serving Him.  It could also be family, friends, spouse, career, home, “stuff”, other addictions…

He wants a strong relationship with us (through prayer and knowing His Word) so when He has a service opportunity for us we are ready and willing to do what HE needs!

Pray hard and pray often!!!

Blessings to you and yours!

Thank you Marie for the reminder that an "I" infection can be very serious in our walk with the Lord.

I too am in danger of the "I" infection; your words have reminded me of my great need to come closer to God and His truths.

Great reminder, Are we in the habit of thinking God, or in the habit of me, me, me?
