Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
- James 1:27
This Morning I read about the Nazarites in Numbers 6. The Nazarites were men and women that made a vow to be consecrated and Holy unto their God. Due to the fact that it was written under the old covenant before Jesus I was a bit confused about how one could make that vow today. I knew the basic idea was purity and holiness but how; I found James 1:27. Princess, our Abba desires that we be unstained by this world. The lover of your soul wants you to be so set apart. The pleasures, ways, patterns and ideas of this world are beneath you anyway. You are royalty. You are a Princess, daughter of the King of ALL King's. What we have is way better than anything this world can give you. A lot of times we compromise and choose the world's way because it seems more appealing. The world's way can seem more delightful, and yes let's be honest the world's way is delightful for a season but don't forget the consequences of the world's way. The world's way leaves us confused, lonely, hurt, and worst of all feeling distant from our Abba. BUT God's way, God's way is full of everlasting joy.
You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
- Psalms 16:11
Alot of God's Princesses don't know what they have. When you don't know what you have of course you'll settle for something else. TODAY, CHOOSE to settle NO MORE. TODAY, get in the word and read about what you have in this new life with Christ. The drugs, sex, partying, drinking and flat out lawlessness you may sometimes engage in has NO comparison to the FULLNESS OF JOY & ETERNAL PLEASURES found through living a life holy unto to God.
Holiness is simply being in one mind with God. Liking what God likes. Hating what God hates. Living in agreement with God. Beloved, today & this day forward will you be set apart Princess?
