103- Consider Your Temperament –
And Cling to Christ – Part III
On June 17, 1983 – last week I groaned over my actions and wrote in my journal:
Galatians 4:19 My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you—
WOW! that’s it—I want to do this for my own little children—care carefully for them so that Christ will be formed in them!
Proverbs 17:27 He who has knowledge spares his words, and a man of understanding is of a calm spirit.
What are my two biggest problems?
*too many words
*a negative, depressive, cast down spirit.
All of this says to me, you’ve got a rotten heart – the flesh nature – I sense the Lord saying:
“Don’t turn to men or put your trust in men in order to build yourself up, to get feedback, or to vent your frustrations!
Look to Me. You can get knowledge and understanding and have the self-control and the joyful spirit you so greatly desire. TRUST WHOLLY IN THE LORD!
Your friend [Jenny] sought Me out for three weeks and received! Let’s go.”
What a great and glorious miracle I am asking for! You met Jenny in her seeking, You will meet me.
Lead, my dear Spirit
