IF YOU THEN, THOUGH YOU ARE EVIL, KNOW HOW TO GIVE GOOD GIFTS TO YOUR CHILDREN, HOW MUCH MORE WILL YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN GIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT TO THOSE WHO ASK HIM!
Precious Child, today, I want to remind you that I have sent you a Gift—My Holy Spirit. I want you to know that My Holy Spirit can do something very supernatural. He can make things that are dead come alive. He can change your darkness into Light, your brokenness into Wholeness, and your guilt into Blamelessness.
THE [HOLY] SPIRIT MAKES ALIVE
(2 Corinthians 3:6).
What need do you have, today, that needs the supernatural touch of My Gift, the Holy Spirit? Is it hopelessness, helplessness, or powerlessness? Is it sadness? Is it confusion? Is it bitterness? Maybe you need love for someone you have not been able to love. Maybe you need to forgive someone you have not been able to forgive. Maybe you need patience for the people in your life…or for your circumstances. Understand that the father-of-lies has come to kill you, steal from you, and destroy your heart from the inside out. But My Holy Spirit has come to make you alive, no matter how bad your circumstances are, no matter how bad the damage in your heart is, and no matter how black your darkness is. Will you receive My Gift, today?
NOT THAT WE ARE SUFFICIENT OF OURSELVES TO THINK ANY THING AS OF OURSELVES; BUT OUR SUFFICIENCY IS OF GOD
(2 Corinthians 3:5).
What is there in your life that is dead—that needs the touch of the Holy Spirit, in order to come alive? Name it and then ask the Holy Spirit to work His supernatural Life in your heart and life.
PRAYER: Perfect abounding Father, I thank You for Your Gift, the Holy Spirit, who came to make alive in me what is dead. Thank you that You did not abandon me here on earth to deal with life and death on my own. How encouraged I am that Your Holy Spirit can do what I am not able to do.
Perfect Father, I am not adequate in myself, but my adequacy is from You. I need the help of Your Holy Spirit, every day, every hour, every moment. Come into my heart, Gift of God, and change my darkness into Light, my brokenness into Wholeness, and my guilt into Blamelessness.
Holy Spirit, come and create Love in my heart for those I have not been able to love. Create Forgiveness in my heart for those I have not been able to forgive. Create Patience in me, so I can deal with the difficult people and circumstances in my life. Make alive what is dead in me.
Maintain an Awareness
And after we have sucked others empty and they have nothing more to give, we turn to distraction and destruction to ease the excruciating pain that oozes from our hearts…because we still believe we do not matter.
