If I empty myself of pride and selfishness, and fill myself with humility; if I deny my Self and let Jesus fill me with His Spirit; if I am nothing, and Jesus is all within me, then there is nothing for Satan to fight for.
And with no spiritual battle raging for my soul, with Satan defeated and the battle over, there is peace. And with Self no longer striving to have everything it’s way, Stress is defeated and its battle is over, and there is peace. Being nothing never felt so good.
As John the Baptist once said of Jesus, “He must become greater; I must become less.” (John 3:30)
Dear God, I pray for the peace of becoming nothing, and the Spirit of Jesus becoming all within me.
