|Everything Good Comes From God, But We Must Be Willing To Receive It.|
All that is good comes from God
Don't try to make your own.
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by [the] word (literally utterance) [of] God.
Romans 10:3 For they, being ignorant of God's righteousness and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves to the righteousness of God. Real righteousness is by grace through faith.
Micah 7:19 He will turn again, He will have compassion upon us; He will subdue our iniquities; and Thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
Don't try to make your own faith or righteousness. Yield your members to God's righteousness. Don't try to make your own righteousness. Stand in His presence and receive His faith for healing, righteousness, and grace. Don't try to rationalize your own faith or hypnotize yourself into believing.
Romans 5:17 For if by one man's offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 45:8 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.
Hebrews 12:28b let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear
When a leaf is blown by the wind it is carried by the wind. It has a shape and structure that makes it submissive to the wind. The wind can carry it anywhere the wind wants it to go. Faith is like the shape and structure of the leaf. A stone is like a person without faith. The wind blows on the stone, but the stone doesn't move with the wind.
The wind is like the free gift of Grace. It is like the Holy Spirit. We are saved by grace and through faith. God drops faith into our hearts, and we either receive it or we don't receive it. It all starts with and utterance of God.
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by [the] word (literally utterance) [of] God.
Faith cometh by hearing and hearing cometh by an utterance of God. When faith comes in, we either obey God or not. God lets us know His will in a matter. We either obey or not. There is no gray area here
Romans 5:21 That as sin hath reigned to death, even so might grace reign through righteousness to eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
So the choice is clear. Will you yield your members to God, like that leaf in the wind, so He can take you where He desires, or will you take control yourself? Will you yield to the Holy Spirit, the ministries in the Church, and the instruction from God's Word, or will you yield yourself to the devil, the world, and your sinful flesh?
1 Cor. 15:10 by the grace of God I am what I am...I laboured...yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
Hebrews 5:14 by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
1 Timothy 4:1-2 having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
Romans 5:21 as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 6:13 says that you are to yield your members as instruments of righteousness. That is, instruments of His righteousness, not your own.
The Choice is clear:
Let Your Spirit so dwell in me,
