Abba Father, I understand…I have been transferred out of the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of Light…a citizen now of Heaven. As such, I am now under the jurisdiction of the Law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. Living a life that is holy and righteous…my sanctification…is the work of Your Holy Spirit Who dwells in me. [Col 1:9-14]
Abba Father…You are a shield around me; You bestow glory on me, and lift up my head. To You I cry aloud…and You answer me from Your Holy hill. I lie down and sleep in peace; I awaken again in the morning, because You sustain me. I will not fear even tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side! For have You not promised? I will never, never, leave you; I will never, ever, forsake you! Assuredly not! O Lord, You are my Help; of whom shall I be afraid? What can man do to me? Thank You, Father, for giving me a good night sleep. Thank You for bringing me safely through the night. Thank You for being my shield and my protector…for watching over me, protecting me, and keeping me safe. Thank You especially for keeping me safe from those temptations and sins that so easily beset me; I am so grateful. Father, I realize…I acknowledge…my sin-enslaved human nature has no power to stand against these temptations and sins. My human nature is a prisoner of sin, held captive by sin, in bondage to sin, enslaved by sin; it is hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless to do anything that is good or pleasing or acceptable to You. But Your Divine Son Jesus has set me eternally free from the penalty for sin, and He has set me free from the power of sin!
Blessed Jesus…by virtue of the Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of Your Blood, which You poured out on my behalf on that cross at Calvary for the forgiveness of my sins, there is now no condemnation for those of us who are joined together with You in a living union of oneness as Your bride…the bride of Christ [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/]! O death…where now is your victory? Where now is your sting? The sting that causes eternal death is sin…and sin gets its power and authority to cause death from the Law. For it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the Book of the Law, to do them;” and “The wages of sin is eternal death.”
But thanks be to You, Father…You have given me the victory over both sin and death through Christ Jesus You Son! In Him, You have given me the free gift of eternal life…for the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has set me forever free from the Law of sin and death! You have called me out of darkness into You marvelous Light; You have transferred me out of the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of Light! I am no longer a citizen of this world, no longer under the jurisdiction of the law of this world… the law of sin and death. I am a citizen of Heaven, and as such I am under the jurisdiction of the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus! Hallelujah!
Precious Jesus…the Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of Your Blood has guaranteed and secured that the Eternal Holy Spirit was indeed given as God’s Eternal gift to dwell in me…never to leave me, never to forsake me. He is the Power of the Divine nature now abiding in me Who continually guarantees and secures my capability to live my everyday life: faithful to my solemn marriage vows as the bride of Christ in our divine marriage; faithfully within the Holy of Holies in the inaccessible Light of the Glory of Your unclouded Presence, Father, in our Sacred Covenant relationship.
Sovereign Holy Spirit…You are my strength! You make my feet like hinds feet; You give me strength and courage to walk along my high places…places of trouble, and hardship, and responsibility. In Your Power, I can say to that mountain, “Who are you, O mighty impassable mountain of human obstacles! You shall become a level plain, a mere mole hill! Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea! Who are you, O great impenetrable wall of human obstacles! You shall become a garden border, a mere stepping stool! Spirit of the Living God…in Your Power, I can climb a mountain, I can scale a wall; my hands can bend a bow of bronze! I can do all things given me to do through Christ Jesus…Who strengthens me! Hallelujah!
