Daily Walk with the Holy Spirit

Saturday, September 16, 2006

Have you been accountable to God's Word?

"So then everyone of us shall give account of himself to God." Romans 14:12

Do you watch what you say?

Do you watch how you act?

How do you treat the person at the grocery store?

How do you live your life at home?

In all that we do, where we go and how we act do we portray Jesus?

No matter what we are doing we are to live Christ like.

"I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself foe me." Galatians 2:20

Who do you surround yourself with?

Are they people who are led by the Spirit?

Are you around those who try to manipulate, control, intimidate, or even humiliate you?

Do you keep searching to find that niche in God?

Where do you belong in the body of Christ?

Do you lean on God?

Do you pray for God's understanding when things go wrong?

Do you pray on a daily basis?

Charles Finney said it best.....
"I get down and pray like it all depends on God, and then get up and go like it all depends on me."

It all goes back to being totally dependent upon God.

We as Christians are not meant to be just holding on, or be miserable and unhappy.

"God created us with a drive for pleasure that only He, Himself can satisfy it." - Jonathan Edwards

When we indulge in the activities of this world they may satisfy, but only for a season.

The earthly desire in which we sometimes seek after it will never be able to permeate the depths of our soul.

Nothing can do this except for God.

Ya know even if you have messed up in the past ask for forgiveness from those that need be asked forgiveness from, ask God first and foremost. He will put whatever you have messed up into the sea of forgetfulness upon asking with a sincere heart.

God does not want us to get bitter, angry and hard hearted.

God wants us to learn from our mistakes and go on.

God wants us to expand our capacity for joy, the joy that only comes from Him.

We are to get to a deeper experience in God's presence.

We can only do this by diligently working the soil of our soul.

Why would we not want to be the one's with a song in our heart and a bounce in our step.

The master Musician will tune the broken strings of our heart, if only we will let Him.

We may feel the stabs at every turn, but when He is done, He will play a song that can not be undone.

Every note will be of sweet aroma, to soothe the anguish of our souls.

We should not forget who we are in Christ.

We should never forget what are here for.

We need to make God the central pursuit of our life.

We need to welcome each step in the journey of life.

We need not keep our focus on worldly things.

We are subject to our Creator, for all we do.

"For in Him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, for we are also His offspring." Acts 17:28

"And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist." Colossians 1:17
