PRIME TIME WITH GOD

 

Good morning Pat, here is today’s prayer…

Dear Heavenly Father, 

I feel so busy and stressed at times.

There is so much to do…working at home and outside my home, activities at church and school, taking time to exercise, appointments, family obligations, invitations to special events…

Please help me to make time with You as my priority.

I submit to You and I want to draw near to You…

Therefore submit to God.
Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you…
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord,
and He will lift you up.

James 4:7-10

I want to start fresh right now and come to You each day.

I want to spend time talking with You, meditating on Your Word, listening to You, worshiping You and thanking You.

Please, Father God, like a breath of fresh air, cleanse alease fill me with the presence of Your Holy Spirit and with Your power for living.

Thank You.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen

    

 

 

TODAY'S DEVOTION

Reflecting on the Names and Nature of God

The Holy Spirit: The Spirit Who Dwells in You

But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you,
He who raised Christ from the dead
will also give life to your mortal bodies
through His Spirit who dwells in you.

Romans 8:11

The Spirit Who Dwells in You is the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Godhead. Long before the Holy Spirit indwelt you, He indwelt Jesus Christ. At the beginning of His ministry, Jesus was “filled with the Holy Spirit” (Luke 4:1). After the Holy Spirit led Him to the wilderness to be tempted by the Devil, Jesus “returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee” (Luke 4:14). Jesus said, “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me” (Luke 4:18). When Jesus faced death, the indwelling Spirit helped sustain His sufferings. When Jesus died, the Holy Spirit was with Him in the tomb. When Jesus was raised on the third day, the Holy Spirit brought Him back from the dead. Just as He was with Jesus, the Spirit Who Dwells in You will be with you in your hour of suffering and death.

Holy Spirit, I can face problems when You are with me. I can even face death because I have both You and Christ dwelling in my life.

Christianity is much more than creeds, rituals and religious practices. Christianity is having the Holy Spirit dwell within you (John 14:17). The Holy Spirit has many ministries in your life, but one of the most important is to raise you up in the day of Resurrection, just as He raised up Jesus. You can live triumphantly and die confidently because the Holy Spirit dwells in you.

Holy Spirit, You give me great confidence to live on this earth because I know what will happen at death. I submit to Your will, and ask that You guide me through this life. Amen.

Go Deeper: Romans 8:1-11

The Holy Spirit can give you resurrected life, just as He gave to Jesus.
