The Promise of the Spirit -- The Comforter
January 15 & 16
Jesus calls us to come to the throne of mercy with a humble and contrite heart seeking God’s grace that we might understand the things He has for us.
For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Isaiah 57:15
Speak with Him when you wake, when you are going through your day talk with Jesus, let the seeking of His presence through the Holy Spirit be the guiding force in your life. He will instruct you in the ways of righteousness. He will empower you to serve Him. He will open up things to your life you never thought were even possible.
14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height — 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:14-19
My desire is that each one of us will make that decision, that choice to come to God in full surrender, and bare our souls to Him. Pleading with God to fill us fully with His Spirit, claiming these promises as if they were made personally to us. Jesus dying on the cross is the guarantee that every promise of God is a personal promise, for you, His child He wants to bless beyond measure.
Have a great day! Thank you for spending some time considering these thoughts.
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we
ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be
glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations,
forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
