Believing - Conversion Pending!

Luke 22:32 (KJV)
32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

For all your dealings with us to completely turn us around with a whole heart departing from self opinion and interest to be totally your possession and swayed only by you.

What encouraging Light comes from this word to Peter; that though we may be the Lord's we still have a need to be "converted".

¶ How great the discouragement can be when we exhibit more of self than Christ and experience so much of self, that we can wonder if we know the Lord at all! Such would have been Peter's great sorrow when he denied the Lord after being so confident about his spiritual growth, and yet what comfort there would have been when he remembered the Lord's warning to him and his promise that the Lord was praying for him and that he would be perfected because the Lord said - "WHEN" not "IF" thou art converted.

¶ Take courage that the Lord knows all about our huge lack and if we don't know it he will allow proof of our pathetic spirituality to come up in the face of our self confidence and bring home to our hearts how much we need to be yet "converted" and turned completely around from self to Him alone!

¶ Go on with the Lord! He is there for you. It can be devastating to be squared up to our great need but that is always the way of change as Job expressed the result of the lengthy painful dealings of the  Lord - Job 42:5-6 (KJV)
5 I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.
6 Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.

¶ The Lord continue to strengthen us to respond to all the light that he shines upon our hearts for our good and JOY IN HIM!

¶ Jesus is reaching for you

God Bless
