Things the Bride of Christ Does

Friday, April 16, 2004

Jesus Christ's Bride says, "I Do" to:

I DO love with the love of God in me...

I do humble myself before the Lord...

I do cry, "Even so, Lord Jesus, come quickly!"...

I do pray to come to the place where we eternally embrace...

I do find it ever increasingly difficult to leave my kneeling position - worshipping place before You...

I do have tearing eyes for the things that make Your eyes tearing, too...

I do bow, my King, in reverence for You...

I do sing a new worship song to You...

I do give back to You everything that I have been given. Because I love You, I give more than my tithes as I live a life of obedience to You. I am a giver, and You are the Giver of all. My giving is the key to receiving Your blessings one hundredfold and more...

I do long for Your glory to be seen through me...

I do want a burning heart, Lord, for You...

I do all that I do unto You with all my heart...

I do dance on the rooftops, praising You...

I do not not use my tongue to re-nail You to the Cross...

I do cry, "Lord, cleanse my lips with a burning coal"...

I do listen for You in the early hours of each day...

I do not let my ears listen to gossip...

I do watch where I let my feet step...

I do fellowship with the believers...

I do keep Your commandments...

I do feed the hungry...

I do visit the prisons...

I do see a need and meet it...

I do find a hurt and heal it...

I do hunger and thirst after righteousness...

I do want to live my life in and for You...

I do keep You in the midst of my heart...

I do sow good seed and reap it unto You...

I do take Communion in daily remembrance of You...

I do keep my thoughts holy and unto You...

I do every day fast and pray...

I do pray in agreement and obey Your Word...

I do pray with a burning, fervent desire, knowing my answer's coming from You...

I do know that You knoweth and You worketh on my behalf...

I do love unconditionally, Master, like You do...

I do trust You...

I do bring all thoughts for harm and not for good into captivity to You...

I do seek to serve and not to be served...

I do be still and know that You are God...

I do reverently fear You...

I do pray daily to flow in the gifts of the Spirit...

I do bless and not curse...

I do let my "yes" be "yes" and my "no" be "no"...

I do know Your voice, and the voice of a stranger I do not know...

I do resist evil, and it does flee from me...

I do stand in the kind of faith that pleases You...

I do know that as I find You, I serve You, Master...

I do know one day I will sit beside You in eternity...

I do know that in the glory here on earth is the place where You make me Your bride...

I do know that the vineyard of my heart grows good fruit as I embrace the Cross for You...

I do know Your Love for me in the weakest times of my life...

I do know Your affection for me in the dark times in my life...

I do know my love and praise ascend to You as a fragrant scent...

I do know my purity is as a beautiful, white lily before You...

I do know I will do what I've been ordained to do by You...

I do know in the middle of the battle You will be there with me...

I do know "Yes, Lord" spoken from my lips pleases You...

I do know You endured the Cross for me. Help me to endure the cross for You when I do not know Your presence...

I do know what Your love for me is...

I do know You alone are my contentment...

I do know that I please You when I step out and follow You to all the places where You send me...

I do know that when I go where you send me, You will be there, too...

I do know that when I arise and go at your beckoning call, I am obeying and loving You most...

I do know that Your chastisement for me in my destiny is Your great Love for me...

I do know that when Your presence is gone from me, it is then that Your Love for me to help me grow closest to You is with me...

I do know my safest places are the places where You are with me, no matter where these places may be...

I do know You know me by the ache in my heart for You...and this keeps me going with You, even when I go afraid...

I do know that when I come out of the wilderness of my testings, I will see You and Your glory will fill the earth through me... Amen!

I do know my number-one thing on earth to do for you today is to win souls for you, Jesus, by plundering hell and populating heaven...

I do know that my life must be lived on this earth right now in the Psalm 91 rest in You for Your glory to be seen on earth as it is seen in heaven...

Love & Blessings,
