Jesus Lives

Abiding in Him

You live by the Spirit: He is the very source of your eternal life. When you were dead in trespasses and sins, it was impossible for you to receive Me as Savior. The Holy Spirit had to make you alive before you could respond to Me. So you do quite literally live by the Spirit.

I want you to go forward along your life-path in step with the Spirit. He will not help you go backward, so beware of seeking refuge in the past. You need to keep moving forward and also to walk in the direction I choose. Moreover, it’s vital to pace yourself according to My timing: neither dashing ahead nor lagging behind. The Spirit will help you in all these matters, as you live in reliance on Him. You can engage His help any time, any place—simply by asking. If you find yourself anxiously rushing, pray, “Slow me down, Holy Spirit.” If you’re uncertain about your direction, ask Him to show you the way. When you don’t know how to pray as you should, cry out, “Help me, Holy Spirit!” He will intercede for you with groanings too deep for words.

The more you seek My Spirit’s help and yield to His loving guidance, the better your life will be. As you keep in step with the Spirit, you find yourself walking close to Me.

Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
~ Galatians 5:25 

And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world.
~ Ephesians 2:1–2 [NKJV]

Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
~ Psalm 25:4–5 

In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
~ Romans 8:26 NASB

Who Am I?

When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers— the moon and the stars you set in place— 4 what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them?
Psalm 8:3-4 [NLT]

When we pause to ponder the greatness of God, humility is the natural response.  God holds time and space in His hands.  Who are we?  We are passing dust compared to His grand eternal glory.  Yet, He still loves us and calls us His children.  Thank God for calling you His own.

Evening Prayer

WORSHIP HIM ONLY 
Exodus:20:3-4

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you will not allow anything to take the place of our Lord in your life. May you prioritize and put Him before your job or your relationships, your activities or any material things. I pray that you will not worship anything else other than the Lord. May nothing get in the way of your relationship with God. May He expose anything that hinders you from truly worshipping Him. I pray that God will give you the grace to say no to things that go against His will, for your God is a jealous God. May He be in the center of your life.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Jesus Calling

GROWING IN GRACE IS ALL ABOUT trusting Me: in good times, in bad times, at all times. One of the best ways of connecting with Me—here and now—is trusting Me in the very situation where you find yourself. Be encouraged by knowing that though you may see only darkness, My Light is shining through you in surpassing splendor!

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

~ 1 JOHN 1:7

Even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me.

~ PSALM 139:10 [NKJV]

Also read: PSALM 62:8

Before You Turn Out the Light 

Grasp My hand in the dark, and don’t let go, for I will never let go of you.

Daily Light on the Daily Path

In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.

~ Ps 94:19

When my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

O Lord, I am oppressed; undertake for me.—Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee.

I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.—If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, … and it shall be given him.

Who is sufficient for these things?—I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing.—My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.

Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee … Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.

My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; … when I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
