Self denial and dying to one’s self..
I thought I had a different understanding of what self denial and dying to one self means..
To be like Christ, to die to one self is to accept the lordship of Father God in one’s life and to place an immense urgency to honor and obey whatever His will is without any regards to self and other people.. no ifs, no buts..
Dying to onself is to be like..
Samuel who was the faithful priest who did all according to what is in the heart and mind of God (1 Samuel 2:35)..
David who was regarded to be the man after God’s own heart because he did all of God’s will (Acts 13:22)..
Jesus whose food was to do the will of God and to finish His work (John 4:34)..
So I urge you brethren, when we pray, let’s take heart and mean (with a humbled, accepting heart of submission) what the Lord’s prayer said:
Matthew 6:9-10 NKJV
In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Absolutely good and infinitely wise will of our sovereign God
Psalm 115:3 NKJV
But our God is in heaven
He does whatever He pleases.
I pray that the LORD God Almighty bestow upon you the grace to desire to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Here’s a prayer for you.

i am who i am because of Jesus.
i am saved by His beautiful grace,
redeemed in His unfathomed mercy,
forgiven in His everlasting love.
Now i am living this life by His given faith,
through His amazing grace,
with the Holy Spirit’s guidance,
in His unfailing lovingkindness,
and all for God’s highest praise and glory.
i’ll always be His grateful daughter
and He will forever be my faithful, sovereign King.
Jeremiah 29:13 ❤️🙏☝️
