True and lasting freedom comes not from man but from the Holy Spirit. As you celebrate your independence from all your past problems and oppression remember that freedom is not a cheap thing. And Salvation in Christ Jesus is not limited by the laws of a nation but superceded it by virtue of it being eternal. Be independent and free to do what is right and just. That’s the real reason why anyone should have freedom at all.
O God, may Your Spirit speak in me that I may speak to You. O Lord Jesus, great high priest, You have opened a new and living way by which a fallen creature can approach You with acceptance.
Help me to contemplate the dignity of Your Person, the perfectness of Your sacrifice, the effectiveness of Your intercession.
O what blessedness accompanies devotion, when under all the trials that weary me, the cares that corrode me, the fears that disturb me, the infirmities that oppress me, I can come to You in my need and feel peace beyond understanding!
The grace that restores is necessary to preserve, lead, guard, supply, help me. And here Your saints encourage my hope; they were once poor and are now rich, bound and are now free, tried and now are victorious.
Every new duty calls for more grace than I now possess, but not more than is found in You, the divine treasury in whom all fullness dwells. To You I repair for grace upon grace, until every void made by sin be replenished and I am filled with all Your fullness.
May my desires be enlarged and my hopes emboldened, that I may honour You by my entire dependency and the greatness of my expectation.
Be with me, and prepare me for all the smiles of prosperity, the frowns of adversity, the losses of substance, the death of friends, the days of darkness, the changes of life, and the last great change of all. May I find Your grace sufficient for all my needs. Amen
This method can help you daily give God control of your life by using the six major parts of the body as a guide for what specifically to turn over to God. You can turn over additional things as well.
“And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.” Romans 6:13
Heavenly Father, I thank You for the Holy Spirit living within me. I yield to You and ask that the Holy Spirit will take full control of my life using these six parts of the body as a guide: mind, eyes, ear, mouth, hands and feet.
Mind: I ask that You will allow my mind to think only on what You want and not on the things I shouldn’t be thinking about.
Eyes: Have my eyes look at what You want me to see, and not anything detrimental to me.
Ears: Allow my ears to hear what You want me to hear instead of negativity.
Mouth: Direct me to say what is pleasing to You and to not say things that could be hurtful to anybody.
Hands: Guide me to do things that are gratifying to You and keep me from the activities that are not helpful to me.
Feet: Direct me to walk to places that are pleasing in Your sight and turn me from any roads that lead to destruction.
Thank you that when all these parts of my body are under the control of the Holy Spirit I am able to lay aside my own desires and instinctive actions, enabling me to grow in my Christian walk.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Seek the Lord every season,
Let wisdom be your reason.
Seasons come and go away,
It’s faith that is here to stay.
Seek the Lord in joy and peace,
Let your love for Him not cease.
Christ Jesus on earth did arrive,
He rose from the dead all alive.
Seek the Lord when the season ends,
Let those who believe be God’s friends.
The Holy Spirit will remind you of him,
And give you true joy to the brim.
Seek the Lord when seasons renew,
Let your praises for him be never few.
All in all love the Father who is great,
For he did truly the whole world create.
