“For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver. You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs. You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance. I will come to your temple with burnt offerings and fulfill my vows to you— vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke when I was in trouble. I will sacrifice fat animals to you and an offering of rams; I will offer bulls and goats.” Psalm 66:10-15 .
Sanctification holds us accountable to Christ. True worship comes from a consecration of hearts to be like Christ. 2 Corinthians 7:1. How many of us hold ourselves accountable to the Word of God daily and our promises to God when He healed us or provided for us? Sanctification brings forth gratitude and thanksgiving in our hearts to make changes in our lives to serve God with our best.
Abel gave his best to worship and to please God, not man. God reminded David that a contrite heart and broken spirit He will not turn away or despise. Psalm 51:17. God desires to bring healing and restoration to the Nations through Christ Jesus living in us. Time for Change, and Time is Now.
With Love Always,
