No Longer I

My life isn’t mine anymore. Because I’ve been bought at a price. How can I live this life apart from Your Presence? How can I live this life apart from Your call and destiny? How else can I live apart from You? Lord, I couldn’t imagine. I can’t imagine life without Your touch, without Your love, without Your word, without Your Presence. Every move I make, every word I speak, every thought I conceive, every desire in my heart– I’ve resolved it to be under Your shadow… I am bound in You.

This life is not my own anymore. How can I possibly live without God’s affirmation? How can I possibly live this life as I please?

I don’t have to live this life as I want. And that gives me true contentment; and that makes me whole. And that gives me peace and true freedom.

“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” –Galatians 2:20

I ♥ God’s Word

Psalms 119:127
“Therefore I love Your commandments
More than gold, yes, than fine gold!”

“How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (v. 103)

God’s words are a treasure, that we must always keep in our hearts, and keep digging it up for more of God’s understanding and revelation. His words are the sweetest things we could fill our mouths with, for His promises are sure and will certainly come to pass. Taste and see that the Lord is good, through His words.

“More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.” (Psalm 19:10)
