Riding the fence

Am I Lukewarm Within my walk with God? Click To TweetAs I sit straddling the fence of wanting to live for Jesus I sometimes have this faint desire to satisfy my flesh. Lord, I know I must love one and hate the other but, how do I combat this thirst I have to drink from the fountain of flesh. I ride this fence torn between the two. I want to live for you but, I’m torn because my flesh rules over me. I hate to admit that sometimes I fall into submission to this desire. I am stuck riding this fence.

God has taken heed to the tug of war that has been place within our spirit it’s as if we have this desire to live for Jesus  but we aren’t fully ready to adopt to his principles, his teachings, his will for our lives. So we ride this fence of uncertainty when the question arise on if we’re willing to get off the fence and completely surrender we battle with ourselves. It’s as if we aren’t ready to acknowledge that God is the head over our lives and his way is the best way, so we tighten our grip on this fence and we allow the enemy to whisper things into our ear and we become numb to the presence of God.  Riding the fence is  just a terminology that’s used to explain our unwillingness to fully surrender to God. Walking with God requires for you to walk blindly removing yourself  from the fence requires that you walk by faith and not by sight.  In revelations 3:15-16 it says

I know you well you’re neither hot or cold. I wish you were one or the other but since you’re merely lukewarm I will spit you out of my mouth!

God is requiring that you acknowledge who you live for, for you cannot be lukewarm. You cannot love the pleasantries of the world but still have a heart that loves God for God says in Matthew 8:36″ What good will it be for you to profit the world yet lose his|her soul”. Why are you so hesitate? What stands in the way of you fully accepting Jesus? God has so many amazing things aligned up for your life but, you will never experience that if you allow the enemy to play tricks on your mind. Get off of the fence, run to Jesus. Your salvation is awaiting for you. I know you have reservations on this whole christian thing and that is the reason on why you haven’t removed yourself from the fence and cry out to God. He wants to hear from you

Psalms 55:22 says” cast all of your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you”.

God wants for you to love him without a shadow of doubt. Unloose your grip from this fence and climb down into his arms. Know that God has you covered; His blood is your security. No demon can cross the blood of Jesus. Get off the fence and run to the plate of eternal life, for Gods gracious hand will lead you along the way.

I come to ask ” Are you riding the fence”?

    I struggle with my flesh and straddling the fence. I know that God wants me..all of me. Still I find myself in a quagmire, when I think I am in the clear, I succumb to fleshly desires and fall into feeling bad and repenting. Someone said repenting while knowing in your heart that you are going to commit that sin again is not true repentance. At times it seems my heart is dirty, mean and craving dirty pleasures which are contrary to God’s will and commands. God help me please!

      Yes, that statement that someone told you is very true, With repenting you want to feel sorrowful over your actions. If you just say Lord forgive me without actually meaning it- its just words without meaning.

    Now this is good. We’ve all sin and come short of God’s glory. We should allow ourselves to experiences ups and downs, learn from them, and move on. Never beat yourself up or judge yourself for anything, as our words are power and can place a spell called black magic on us.
