One Thing 7/23/13
1Pet. 3:14 But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. AND DO NOT FEAR THEIR FEAR, AND DO NOT BE TROUBLED,
1Pet. 3:15 but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts….,
If you are going to live without fear or always being troubled on the inside, then you must sanctify Jesus as Lord in your heart. As I have said, you can’t live by faith, trusting Jesus to live His life through you, unless He is enthroned as Lord in you. When Jesus is sanctified as Lord in your heart then all internal controversies are ended. As Lord, you are simply now trusting Him to do His will (and He always does) in and with your life. No more anxiety because He always knows what He is doing, for in Him are stored all of the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. As Lord, He calls you into all kinds of situations and He promised in 1 Thessalonians 5:24 KJV that in everything He calls you into, He is prepared by His divine adequacy to DO IT. Only those who have surrendered their will to His Lordship live untroubled while being surrounded by troubles. Only those who have crowned Him King of their lives live free from the fear that is all around them. Thanks be to God Who always leads us, and the One who leads us always leads us in His TRIUMPH. To sanctify Him as Lord is to walk in perfect heart freedom.
