1 Corinthians 13:1,2 (KJV)
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
Every born again believer in Christ also contain characteristics of the Holy Spirit. Are the fruits of the Spirit in your life?
Daily Prayer:Lord, I pray that everyone that has faith in You, will also build upon that belief. May our hearts be continually open to the truths of Your Words, in the Bible, and in prayer. Open our hearts and minds to knowledge that only comes from above. Help us learn how to have self-control and be patient. Give us over to live like You and be more selfless. We desire to live differently and know that You can help us do so. Shape our lives that we may shine brightly. Help us to show kindness and love towards everyone we meet. May forgiveness be in our hearts no matter the cause. And if someone is in need, bring us to care for them. We hope in You, Lord. Your love gives us reasons to endure in our faith. If there is any goodness in our lives it is from You. You are the reason why we are joyful. Your presence gives us peace. We love You Lord and our lives are to follow You, even till the ends of time. Amen.
Our belief in God is the first step of following Him. Our openness to God allows Him to pour into us and give us wisdom. Continue Reading
1 Corinthians 12:12,13 (KJV)
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
Everyone that is gifted with the gifts of the Spirit is also a person that is baptized by the Holy Ghost.
Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, I pray that more people that believe in You, take the extra step and repent and be baptized. So many people in church do not understand the need to be born again of the water and of the Spirit and I pray that this changes. May this teaching be plain in churches that Your gifts of the Spirit are for every person that has committed their life to You, through baptism. I am amazed at the gifts that You have bestowed upon me. Thank You for the gift of wisdom. I am now able to gain Your insight and apply these teachings in my life. Your words of knowledge has helped me grow so much in the faith. You have strengthened my faith, each day that I seek You. You continually pour into my soul and give me guidance. Thank You for opening my mouth and giving me words to speak. I rely on the Spirit, oh Lord. Without the Spirit, I can do nothing. Work through me Lord and help me show kindness towards everyone around me. Also, help others that are seeking You and have not experienced these gifts yet. Help them take the extra steps needed, in order to experience these spiritual gifts for themselves. I know that You can do all things. I trust in You Lord. I love You. Amen.
Some of you may recognize the gifts of the Spirit in your life and others, not so much. For me, God has given me the gift of wisdom, knowledge, faith, and to discern spirits. Continue Reading
Galatians 5:24,25 (KJV)
24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
Galatians 5:22,23 (KJV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Only those that are born again in the water and the Spirit will enter the kingdom of God. Are the fruits of the Spirit in you?
Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, thank You for giving us Your divine wisdom on how to enter the kingdom of God. We are grateful to come before You and be cleansed from all our sins. We give every evil work of the flesh over to You, this day. We acknowledge our sins and ask for forgiveness. Have mercy upon us Lord. We are sorry for living for the flesh and apart from You. We wish to not live this way any longer. Help us to no longer serve the flesh but live for the Spirit. And Lord, to those that have not been baptized of the Spirit, convict them now, to do so. May they repent and be baptized before it is too late. And to those that are already baptized in the Holy Spirit, wake them up. Set a revival in their hearts. Lead them away from all uncleanness and unto repentance. May they come back to their one true love, which is You, Jesus. I pray that they remember the day when they were baptized and filled with the Spirit. This I plead for them. Come back and be filled again. I know that You are waiting Lord. Lord, cleanse us this day, of all our sins, and fill us with Your Spirit. We believe in You. We trust in You. You are our hope. I love You Lord. Amen.
Paul mentioned that there is a difference with somebody that is born again in the Spirit than someone that is living in the flesh. Continue Reading
Proverbs 18:10-12 (KJV)
10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
11 The rich man’s wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit.
12 Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.
Proverbs 18:1,2 (KJV)
1 Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.
2 A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.
God's wisdom is better than anything we could ever experience in life. It is refreshing in every way possible.
