Only in You

So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.  He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.
—Ephesians 1:6-8 (NLT)

I'm so glad you know me, Lord, because there are days when I don’t know me. There are days when your purpose in my life is strained—when there is just not enough of me to accomplish what you see in me. 

There is never enough of me and never will be. It is only through you and in you that I accomplish anything of lasting value. I yearn to know more about what you see in my life. I want to be fully alive in you. I don't wish for any lie to keep me from the spiritual richness of your Grace. Help me realize any lie that holds me back and to bury it. I want to know what it means to love without thought of the cost. I want to know what it means to rest in peace no matter the moment or what circumstance raises its head.

I’m tired of self, which keeps me from seeing your infinite Truth and blessings in my life. I believe that you give me your eyes to see and your ears to hear. Please help me get past myself so that I can. I believe you give me the spiritual depth of your understanding. Help me to get past analyzing and reasoning with my own. I believe I have your capacity to love. Help me to get out of the way so you will flow without restraint through me—living in the completeness of your unconditional love. Nothing can stand in its way of your Grace when self is out of the way. 

My mind is limited in what it perceives and recognizes. Your mind is all-knowing and aware and in tune with the rhythms of Grace. Your mind is all I desire. Living your boundless Grace is my longing—my desire. I want to ebb and flow with your Spirit, Jesus—never with my emotions or feelings.

I trust you, Lord. I’m your child. I ask for greater faith. You died so that I can have a new life in you. I believe you, Jesus, and I have your new life. I am healed by your blood, which you shed for me. I am not partially healed. I am completely healed—whole in your marvelous Grace. I choose to live my life from your perspective—from the Truth you know about me. I stand unmasked in your presence with nothing to hide. You have the right to do with me as you wish—to change my perspective continually—to mold me—to transform my mind to the wonder of your Truth. 

I judge no one—not even myself. You have judged me righteous with the gift of your life for mine. I don’t walk in condemnation or shame. Neither do I need to condemn anyone else. My spirit overflows. You heal me. I receive it. I’m not limited by any lie or any fear or any doubt. I believe. I praise you for the marvelous Grace you have poured within me. You are everything within me. I live in you alone. The voice of the enemy is quietened. I no longer hear him. I am FREE.
