Recollecting Of The Soul
Psalm 59:9 - "O my Strength, I will watch and give heed to You and sing praises; for God is my Defense."
The soul that is not recollected in one appetite alone -- the desire for God -- loses heart and strength in the practice of virtue.
I WILL CONCENTRATE THE STRENGTH OF MY APPETITES ON GOD ALONE.
Mark 9:24 - "And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief."
I AM NO LONGER TROUBLED BY THE DEMONS OF FEAR AND DOUBT. I REPENT OF MY UNBELIEF.
I DRAW UPON THE FORGIVENESS OF CHRIST AND HIS PURITY OF HEART AND THEN I YIELD MYSELF TO CHRIST'S FAITH AND EMBRACE HIS LOVE WITHIN ME.
James 3:8 - "But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison."
I BOLDLY DECLARE THAT MY TONGUE IS UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
MY WORDS ARE SEASONED WITH GRACE, AND MY LIPS ARE CONSTANTLY GIVING THANKS TO GOD! THIS IS WHAT MY TONGUE SPEAKS BECAUSE IT IS SUBMITTED TO THE LORDSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST.
