I am sitting here and thinking to myself, "Just how much am I giving up because I am not willing to give up something or someone that was really never even mine to begin with?"
God is speaking to me. And I love it when He does.
One of our principals in BSF last week was...
"The yielded life is the fulfilled life."
Then through a daily prophecy I get every morning, yesterday's prophecy was this...
Move quickly through the responsibilities of this time, for you are transitioning into a new season and a different set of circumstances. Clean up and clear out things that are no longer significant or relevant to your spiritual growth and kingdom position. Deal with distractions that keep you from complete concentration on being yoked with me in kingdom work, says the Lord.
And then today, as I am reading the notes for BSF for this week's lesson...
"As individuals indwelt with the Holy Spirit learn more about Jesus and increasingly yield themselves to Him, they are filled with His person and power."
Also, in the same lesson,
"Each time a person yields his will in obedience to the truth of the Bible he is filled with the Holy Spirit."
I know the Spirit is leading me to give up or yield something in order to be more filled and yoked with Himself. God knows this is my heart's desire, to know Him fully and be filled with His Spirit more and more everyday. Yet, somehow in this season of my life, I am keeping something to myself .
What is it?
God show me.
Reveal to me whatever distraction is keeping me from receiving more of You.
Give me the courage and boldness to release it to You as You do.
Help me to not to grieve You nor the Holy Spirit by keeping something or someone in my life this is hindering You from filling me more.
Thank you Lord for loving me so much that you would use so many different avenues to speak to me.
In Jesus' name, Amen.
