I pray that you are all blessed today as you walk in the righteousness of the Lord. I thank each of you for the "Spiritual Growth for Women Ministry".
(1 Cor. 6:9-11) Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor greedy nor drunkards nor slanders nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
I want you to imagine that you are standing in front of a huge bonfire. The flames are burning so hot and leading straight up to the heavens. The flames are so hot that you can barely stand within ten feet of it. Imagine yourself on your knees worshipping and praising God in the loudest voice you can. In your hands you are holding pieces of paper that you have written all your prayer request. Each small piece of paper has a different prayer request. As the flames grow taller and gets hotter its time for you to throw all of the pieces of paper into the fire and as they burn up the flames grow taller to reach the heavens. Now imagine the Angels of the Lord clinching each of the prayers under their wings and carrying them up to the Lord.
You continue praying and as you are praying the Spirit of the Lord is burning up everything in you that is not like Him. Everything that He cannot use, He is burning it up. God is burning it up so that even the devil can't read them or try to bring them back to you. Everything that you have prayed to God to remove from you, He has done it. Everything that you have prayed to God for your marriage, He has done it. Everything that you have prayed to God for your healing, your children, your jobs, He has done it.
Woman of God, I don't care what type of lifestyle that you are struggling to get out of; God is burning it up. You might be struggling with addiction, adultery, homosexual tendencies, God is burning it up. It does not matter if you are in the midst of those particular characteristics, God is burning it up. You have to have faith that God has washed you clean and set you aside for His kingdom and glory. Keep fighting, don't you quit ever. God loves you, He does not love the sin, but God is so merciful that He loves you. You are not wrestling against flesh and blood, but against principalities of this world. God knows exactly what to do for you to be righteous. LET US PRAY!
Heavenly Father, I pray that you forgive me for my sins. Lord, forgive me for the things that I do that does not bring you glory. I thank You Lord God that You are burning up everything that You cannot use for Your kingdom. I pray that You strengthen me Lord as I am being burned to look more like you, in Jesus name, Amen.
