Dear Lord, I pray that we can all come to an understanding of Your desires for our lives. May our heart and soul rest upon You all our days, that we may know what is your will and what is of this world. Your ways are higher and by the Holy Spirit we can live apart from the flesh and live for You. You make us able ministers of the gospel, through our faith and devotion to You. As we put our trust in You, Lord, for salvation, our lives are changed. Even in an instant, our wicked hearts are put to death and we are resurrected into new life. Just as You rose from the dead, we rise into a new life that glorifies You and not the flesh. Our new God given instincts are what leads us to do things that are righteous and holy and not to blaspheme the temple of the Holy Spirit, that is inside of us. Therefore, we pray each day that we may be led away from temptation and into Your love. May Your words always be in our hearts, that we may know how to follow You and do Your will. Now, in all things Lord, we desire the Holy Spirit to be with us always. Lead us and protect us in this life now and ahead of us. I know that You have us in Your hands and will never let us down. I trust in You, Jesus. You are my Lord and my God. I love You. Amen.

Every true believer is led by the Spirit and not the desires of their own heart. We are resurrected into new life in Christ Jesus.
It is in God’s hand that we are made to be His ministers. And with the Holy Spirit in us, we can speak about condemnation and death, while leading people out from the path of destruction and unto God. Continue Reading
