Day 4 (Unexpected Adventure)

Rid me of myself / I belong to You.

The Enemy knows my weaknesses. He knows exactly when and how to feed me lies. He also loves reminding me of everything I lost and everything I am missing out on. He loves making me sad and bringing back my despair.
Thank goodness I do not belong to him. 
I belong to a wonderful and trustworthy God. He has been designing my deliverance long before the Enemy could devise my destruction. 
Romans 8:35-39
Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Just as it is written, 
“For Your sake we are being put to death all day long; 
We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 
But in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I read this on She Reads Truth this morning:
“I have to believe that the solid, reliable, and deep love of Jesus that surrounds me is better than the ephemeral lies swirling in my head.”

Today I’m praying for the Holy Spirit to help me discern the lies and to give me the strength to remove them from my heart, trusting in His love that conquers all. Rid me of all that is not of Him. I am His. No one and nothing can take me away from Him. 
(Just saying that out loud and writing it down is so powerful. His words and His promises are true and bring peace. I’m gonna be repeating these words in my head over and over today.) 
My song today:

Letting Go by Steffany Gretzinger

You’ve brought me to the end of myself This has been the longest road 

Just when my hallelujah was tired 
You gave me a new song 

I’m letting go
I’m letting go 
I’m letting go 
Falling into You 

I confess I still get scared sometimes 
But perfect love comes rushing in 
And all the lies screamed inside go silent The moment You begin 

I’m letting go 
I’m letting go 
I’m letting go 
Falling into You 

You remind me 
Of things forgotten 
You unwind me 
Until I’m totally undone 
And with Your arms around me 
Fear was no match for Your love 
Now You’ve won me 

And if I lived a thousand lifetimes 
And wrote a song for every day 
Still there would be no way to say 
How You have loved me 
Oh, how You love me 
And that’s how You’ve won me
