Therefore, GET YOUR MINDS (and hearts)* READY FOR ACTION, being SELF-DISCIPLINED, and set your hope COMPLETELY ON THE GRACE TO BE BROUGHT TO YOU at the REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST. As obedient children, DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THE DESIRES OF YOUR FORMER IGNORANCE but, as the One who called you is holy, you also are to be holy in ALL YOUR CONDUCT; for it is written, Be holy, because I am holy.
1 Peter 1:13-16 HCSB
I need to think.
I need to Intentionally and Consciously
STOP and think.
I need to choose to
I need to make a choice
when I become aware of something
that is contradictory to the truth (my truth is God's word),
I can prepare myself in advance.
I will prepare myself in advance.
As I consciously and intentionally choose to pray
I will ask the Holy Spirit
to produce in me self-control
so that I will maintain the action
of being PROactive and not REactive.
When I pray
I will seek God for wisdom and peace.
When I see or hear
contradictions to His word
I will trust
the peace and wisdom
that He will fill me with in that moment
because of the time I spent with Him in prayer.
I trust He will be my strength in time of need.
I trust He will be the wisdom and peace that I need.
I boldy went before the throne of grace
and presented my request
and I trust and BELIEVE
that He will answer my prayer in my great time of need.
I will look to God and do
His will and His purpose
I will HOPE COMPLETELY ON THE GRACE AND REVELATION
not only that Jesus Christ brought me
on my day of salvation when I was ignorant,
but also to me in this very moment.
