Life-Changing Way to Live Out Life
Updated: Nov 14, 2020
I find myself asking today, “do I fully understand this gift of God’s Holy Spirit?” Maybe you are like me and have walked many days of life, consumed with life, busyness, and the weight of the world. It pains me to think of days I maybe even forgot He was there. In Ephesians 1, Paul prayed over the recipients of his letter, and that includes you and me today.
UNHURRY HACK: Let the Holy Spirit change the way you approach every area of life.
FIRST READ: Ephesians 1:16-20
We can read this passage as a prayer over our self and others: “I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms,” Ephesians 1:16-20.
I pray today that you and I can walk each day fully realizing the hope and power that indwells us through the Holy Spirit of God. What a life changing way to live out life, but our awareness of the Holy Spirit is constantly at battle with sneaky attacks by the enemy to keep us distracted and forgetful of the power and peace and guidance that is available to us. Join me in surrendering this day and its troubles to God. Let his Holy Spirit encourage, reveal, teach, correct, guide, and bring you freedom as the Spirit of God works in us and through us. For many of us, that would change the way we approach every area of life. What peace and what hope that would bring every day! Be sure of this my sister or brother in Christ, Jesus is with us always, even this very day, even to the end of the age.
