By the grace of God, we are no longer living under the curse of the law. We have been saved through faith in Christ. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we are enabled to continue His work on earth. No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him – but God has REVEALED it to us by His Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. (1 Corinthians 2:9-10).
Jesus is saying,
O WHAT A WONDERFUL PROMISE!
Father God, thank You for giving us the Holy Spirit to teach us Your Word. Jesus has said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)
Father God, sanctify us by the truth. Your Word is truth. (John 17:17) Pour out Your Spirit of power and love and grace. Amen!
We are Your ambassadors. You made Christ who had no sin to be sin for us, so that IN HIM we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:20-21) Lead us and guide us in the path of righteousness. We know what is required of us – to act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with You (Micah 6:8b).
I pray in the name of Jesus for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on all people (Joel 2:28) so that we may bear fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23a). Father God, I pray that You enable us to test our own actions (Galatians 5:4). Amen!
Please search our hearts and test us and know our anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in us, and lead us in the way everlasting (Psalm 139:23-24). How blessed we are to be able to live EVERY DAY in Your Spirit. Thank You LORD!
