Oh Lord, thank You for anointing Your people and myself with the gift of the Holy Spirit. We are so lost without You and are truly grateful to have true direction in this life. Every time we come to You, we find counsel and wisdom and are so humbled to receive it. Thank You for giving us knowledge and leading us on your path of righteousness. This is what we need to be happy. There is hope, because You have us by the hand and are leading us now. Apart from You, there is no joy, but only guilt and shame. We can find joy for a time, but it never lasts and are always back trying to find something better in life that will fulfil our lusts. These types of feelings are so destructive and never lead me to happiness, Lord. I am only more desirous of things that I don't have and need and covetousness enters my wicked heart. So Lord, I pray that I may never be ruled over by the flesh again. Instead, I pray that You will lead me and guide me. My desire is to have you build me up with Your strength and not my own any longer. From this day forward, will follow You and not just say I believe. It is my true desire to make You Lord of my life and have You remove anything that is causing a right in our relationship. So may there be less of me and more of You in my life. Only by abiding in You can I ever experience what true joy is like. You are my King and I come to You now in honor and praise. I exalt Your holy Name, Jesus. Please help me know what to do now and I will do more than listen, but follow Your every footsteps. It is with great pleasure to do whatsoever You command me. I love You Lord. Amen.
1 Samuel 16:6,7 (KJV)
6 And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the Lord’s anointed is before him.
7 But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.
The Lord Jesus wants to anoint you with the Spirit. So make Him Lord of your life and the Holy Spirit will come like fire.
