“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control. Against such there is no law.” – Galatians 5: 22, 23
Over the past ten days, we have been learning about and discussing the various fruits of the Spirit. Should we choose to dedicate ourselves fully to the Lord and His work, these are attributes that will develop and reign in us. Our characters shall be changed, molded ever closer into the image of the Son of God. As we choose to reflect the image that our Heavenly Father designed us to have, others will be drawn and become curious to know what is it that we have, what do we know that makes us so different?
I pray that these last few days have been a great blessing to you; they certainly have been for me. I have watched as God has worked in the hearts of individuals and encouraged them to take steps out of their comfort zone, but in line with will of the Lord. Do you have a testimony of something that has happened to you over these ten days? Or to someone else? Would you like to place a prayer request or share a praise report? My prayer warriors would be honored to pray on your behalf.
Scripture tells us to “pray without ceasing,” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). From these humble beginnings, bowing our hearts in earnest, constant prayer, true revival and reformation can and will take place. May we all strive to become more Christ-like. May we all choose to delve deeper into the Word of God, asking for the Holy Spirit to guide us in our studies. May we remember to focus on the Lord at all times and to rely on Him for our every need. May we surrender to the Lord all that is keeping us from an active, intimate relationship with Him. May we plead for a clean and pure heart of flesh to replace our hardened heart of stone. May we more often and more earnestly seek the Lord in prayer. May we request and mightily receive the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
“Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the Lord. Till He comes and rains righteousness on you.” – Hosea 10:12
Lord Jesus, help us to be prepared for the day when You return to take us to heaven with You. Amen.
May you be blessed!
