IT’S ABOUT POWER! 08-25-15

_ 031514 Holy Ghost

Good morning everyone. This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. I have received numerous prayer requests from individuals that have had fear wrapped all around them. I remind everyone right now that God has not given us a spirit of fear; He has given us power over fear.

Today’s Prayer

Father, in the midst of today’s fast-paced society, help us slow down for fear that we will miss all that You have for us. There are moments when Your creation crosses our paths — a bird’s song, a new rose bud after a dry summer, a child’s laughter, a friend’s greeting, a stranger’s smile — but are our minds on other things? Have we missed these moments that You have provided for our enjoyment, our renewal, or our opportunity? Have we neglected to recognize another’s need; an encouraging word, a helping hand? Have we missed the right time to tell someone about You when we failed to point out that it was not “luck,” but You Lord when a prayer was answered? Have we forgotten to encourage or express our love to a spouse, an offspring, or a friend? Help us recognize and seize these precious moments that will not come again. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.

The Work of the Holy Spirit

John 16:5-15 –

But now I am going away to the one who sent me, and none of you has asked me where I am going. Instead, you are very sad. but it is actually best for you that I go away, because if I don’t, the Counselor won’t come. If I do go away, he will come because I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convince the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment. The world’s sin is unbelief in me. Righteousness is available because I go to the Father, and you will see me no more. Judgment will come because the prince of this world has already been judged. “Oh, there is so much more I want to tell you, but you can’t bear it now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not be presenting his own ideas; he will be telling you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. He will bring me glory by revealing to you whatever he receives from me. All that the Father has is mine; this is what I mean when I say that the Spirit will reveal to you whatever he receives from me.

Quote of the Day

Lord, I am no longer my own, but Yours. Put me to what You will, rank me with whom You will. Let be employed by You or laid aside for You, exalted for You or brought low by You. Let me have all things, let me have nothing, I freely and heartily yield all things to Your pleasure and disposal. And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, You are mine and I am Yours. So be it. Amen.
