As a Christian there are seven areas in our live that we need to have fully consecrated to the Lord and to keep consecrated.
–Thoughts and Opinions
We must give each of these fully over to God and see ourselves only as stewards of them. As we go through live and deal with trials, tribulation, and temptation we will find ourselves in need of reconsecrate.
We need keep it in mind that our consecration will be challenged in all these areas and need be ready to fight that self, sin, and the devil do not regain control of our lives.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”
1. Are you consecrated in all these seven areas?
2. Do you lack consecration in any of these areas?
3. Will you pray right now and ask God to help you to be fully consecrated, to live a life of total self denial, to give yourself fully to unselfish living, and giving up all your rights?
4. Did the Lord point out some selfless thing that he wants you to do when you prayed? If not will you pray again and ask him to?
