January 14 – Mighty and Marvellous
Glad indeed are the souls with whom I walk. Walking with Me is security. The coming of My Spirit into a life, and its working are imperceptible, but the result is mighty.
Learn of Me. Kill the self. Every blow to self is used to shape the real, eternal, imperishable you.
Be very candid and rigorous with yourselves. “Did self prompt that?” and if it did, oust it at all costs.
When I died on the Cross, I died embodying all the human self. Once that was crucified, I could conquer even death.
When I bore your sins in My own body on the Tree I bore the self-human nature of the world. As you too kill self, you gain the overwhelming power I released for a weary world, and you too will be victorious.
It is not life and its difficulties you have to conquer, only the self in you. As I said to My disciples, “I have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.” You could not understand them. But as you go on obeying Me and walking with Me, and listening to Me, you will, and then you will see how glorious, how marvellous My revelations are, and My teachings.
I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ
Jesus our Lord, I die daily. 1 Corinthians 15:31
