Growing in Convictions

I make it a practice to write down specific personal convictions that God reveals to me in my communion with Him. It is not that I live in folly, but I need to grow, just like everyone else, in convictions of precise light. "The entrance of thy words giveth light" (Psalm 119:130). "In thy light shall we see light" (Psalm 36:9b). The Hebrew word for "light" means accurate, precise light with no invasion of shadows.

In light, we get more convictions. It is imperative that we have convictions-convictions of loyalty, convictions of love, convictions of edification. We need to enter into silent prayer for people and then speak words of edification.

We must grow in convictions through mercy, grace, love, and forgiveness, always hating sin and loving God. A Christian who doesn't grow in conviction is a casualty waiting to happen. He will become a statistic, indifferent toward his call as a member in particular in the Body of Christ.

It is a wonderful thing to live in convictions from a Finished Work premise as the basis for divine mobilization and spiritual motivation.
