PRAYER: Dear LORD, so often I have walked on my own instead of walking in YOUR SPIRIT. Inspire and guide my footsteps this day, I pray in JESUS’ name.
WHY PRAY THIS?: Galatians 5:16- says “I advise you to obey only the HOLY SPIRIT’s instructions. HE will tell you where to go and what to do, and then you won’t always be doing the wrong things your evil nature wants you to.”
Of course, to walk in the Spirit is a challenging and inspiring exercise, for it combines spiritual activities with rest of mind. To walk means to place one foot in front of the other. If we stop doing this, we are no longer walking- meaning -we are standing still. Well, As against Sin, walking always implies movement, progress, and direction off a sinful point to receive and maintain GODs Kingdom Visa and other Documents till arrival at the destination (Kingdom of GOD).
NOTE: All you and I have to be doing, as our little efforts, is to be allowing HOLY SPIRIT to lead the way always. With this, be rest-minded for “Sin shall no longer rule or dominate anyone of us when we are allowing the HOLY SPIRIT to live CHRIST’s life through us.” Remember, “It is living by faith, living by trust, living in dependence upon GOD.”
BEWARE: If we look to our own resources, our own strength, or our own ability, as Peter did when he walked on the water, we will fail, (..we cannot attain by our power or work).
You cannot live the Christian life by yourself. The HOLY SPIRIT must live in you and express HIMSELF through you. Living for CHRIST is a day-by-day experience. It is a continuous believing in JESUS CHRIST, trusting HOLY SPIRIT, with full dependence upon GOD. Yes, It is believing in HIS overall faithfulness to the end. Peace be unto You!
