Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for Food, For we are called not to live off Bread Alone! I Thank the Lord for Fasting, For we starve the Flesh to feed the spirit! I Thank the Lord for Drive, For we are all called to a High Power!
It is Written, “See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand! Those who want to impress people by means of the flesh are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ. Not even those who are circumcised keep the law, yet they want you to be circumcised that they may boast about your circumcision in the flesh. May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is the new creation. Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule–to the Israel of God. From now on, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers and sisters. Amen.” Galatians 6:11-18
Prayer: I Pray Father that your Children seek not the things of the Flesh, But run after the Authority in the Spirit given to us in Jesus Name, Amen!
I love this part of the Bible, as it really shows that God wasn’t so concerned with the rules of the religious leaders as much as He’s concerned with their hearts. That’s how He feels about us too, that He doesn’t want us to get so caught up in all the “do’s” and “don’ts” of religion but rather to know that our hearts are in it for Him.
