"We often pray that God’s will come to pass in our life, yet do we really know what we are asking? What He commands of us requires complete sacrifice of SELF (Rom 12). Do we really love Him like we say we do? “If you love Me, keep My commands,” (John 14:15). Do we deny ourselves on a daily basis (Matt 16:24)? Is it possible that we can really obey and trust God wholeheartedly? Yes! Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come (2 Corinth 5:17). God’s will for our life requires a spiritual circumcision! We are crucifying our flesh! Death to self! He must increase, I must decrease (John 3:30)! Without holiness, we will not see the Lord (Heb 12:14)! Pursue Jesus Christ with all of your heart. Delight yourself in the Lord! I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus (Phil 3:14)."
