41 "Keep watching and praying, that you may not enter into
temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
SAY THIS: I will "pray through" every day.
It has been quite some time since I posted anything from the heart. For a time I thought that maybe writing a journal on a my blog wasn't really necessary. Today I believe that any time we can lift the name of Jesus HIGH we should do just that.
Many times we become busy with life, ministry, family, friends and forget why we are doing those things. Is it not to bring glory to the King. To allow others to see Christ in us by our actions and our love?
Today it is my prayer that I will walk that narrow path of Holy living in order to bring glory to God and that others may desire what I have. People in our lives may not always understand our heart for the Lord. They may even attack us at every turn because darkness never enjoys the light shining on their sin...... BUT GOD!
What joy when the Holy Spirit knocks on their heart and they actual respond! Is it not worth it to witness that? :)
Today we may each have a situation that is causing us to want to react in the flesh, but God has called us to a higher calling. His word promises that if we keep watching and praying that we will draw on the strength of the Holy Spirit within us.
Greater is he that is in us than he that is in the world.
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
A holy life requires daily prayer. God expects us to have a daily prayer life. Through prayer we receive strength and Spiritual guidance from God.
It is my prayer that this devotional helps remind you in a gentle way to seek the Lord daily, just as it has my spirit.
