I am forgiven of all my sin, and God lives in me, I have strength within me, and I understand fully God's word. I am a child of God, born of His word and born of the Spirit, my path is bright because I have direction from above. As Gods child I'm never confused, God lives in me #confess

One day as these men were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Dedicate Barnabas and Saul for the special work to which I have called them.”
So I want to touch on something really critical to our growth in Christ? Well, what is it? You may ask; I believe the key scripture touches this a little. It’s the matter of dedication. Now as much as Gods ability is available to us, if we don’t consciously make use of it, it remains dormant. God is not a taskmaster, so He won’t force you to dedicate time or effort toward seeking Him, He’s also not a magician, he won’t function outside the range within which you let Him operate.
In the scripture, the disciples could clearly discern God’s will in the place of seeking him in prayer (fasting there entails they had their entire being involved in what they were doing). Many people meet me and tell me about how they want to be like…and they call the name of a popular minister. Well it’s simple really, all it takes is dedication. You need to dedicate time to knowing Him more, praying and seeking Him. It’s conscious effort you have to make, and the result is always blissful, more like heaven on heart hallelujah.
Lord Jesus, I need to be more dedicated to you and your cause, help me and teach me, amen
