Morning by Morning, June 5 - Confidence and Competence in Christ
Good morning, Lord Jesus. In Your Presence, I humble myself to willingly choose to be desperately dependent upon You alone, O Lord, my God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. ...
"Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God. Not that we are competent of ourselves to claim anything as coming from us; our competence is from God, who has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant, not of letter but of spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life" (2 Corinthians 3:4-6).
Lord, I have no confidence nor competence apart from You. Apart from You, I can do nothing (John 15:5). Every good and perfect gift comes from You (James 1:17).
You are my credentials. Your Spirit is my Teacher and Your daily guidance along my life-long journey is my school. Your New Covenant, this Gospel of the Kingdom of God, is my curriculum and the Word of God is my text. Help me learn Your ways to minister Your truth in love through the nature and Presence of Your Spirit, ever-abiding in me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
My Friend, may you be confident and competent in Christ, as His Holy Spirit anoints and empowers you for the ministries of truth and love He has planned for today. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
