Conquer Your Will

This is the confidence you have in approaching God: that if you ask for anything according to his will, he hears you. Submit yourself, then, to God; come near to him and he will come near to you. Do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is, that you turn away from your own will which, being of the flesh, always leads you astray. Conquer your will.

Jesus answered, If people love me, they will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. John 14:23

So do not be foolish but learn what the Lord wants you to do. Ephesians 5:17

So give yourselves completely to God. Stand against the devil, and the devil will run from you. Come near to God, and God will come near to you. You sinners, clean sin out of your lives. You who are trying to follow God and the world at the same time, make your thinking pure. James 4:7-8

The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:17

And this is the boldness we have in God’s presence: that if we ask God for anything that agrees with what he wants, he hears us. 1 John 5:14

About admin

I am a depraved, morally bankrupt wretched sinner through and through. I’ve attended church sporadically most of my life, haven’t spent a minute in seminary and only recently gave the Bible more than a cursory review. I’ve attended exactly one theology class and I dropped out of that. However, in spite of my moral infidelity, I’ve come to be filled with the Holy Spirit. I’ve learned my salvation isn’t the result of what I do, but rather what Jesus has done on my behalf. I didn’t find the Holy Spirit, He found me. And in our relationship I have invited Him to change me, to use me for His purpose, to conquer my will with His own. Praise the Lord, for even an unworthy, chronic sinner like me can experience and give testimony to His glory!

One Response to Conquer Your Will

  1. Ginny Baker says:

    …and then release your will, emptying yourself of anything and everything that stands in the way of the Lord using you, so that His perfect will may come to full fruition within your life, that He may be beautifully glorified before a watching world.
