Daily Walk with the Holy Spirit

Are we teachable?

"Teach me Thy way O Lord; I will walk in Thy truth: unite my heart to fear Thy name." Psalm 86:11

Do you trust God's Holy Word and use it as an absolutely necessary, essential tool to guide your steps? Or do you go a different route? God's Word is or should be your road map. The Bible is the ultimate guide for life! His wisdom and truth never fails!

When bad news comes, or difficulties arise, how do you deal with them. One thing which can be very helpful is to turn to Scripture. It is remarkable how much guidance, encouragement and comfort can be found in the words of Scripture. Scripture is life-giving. It is alive and active!

"For the Word of God is quick, and poweful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."  Hebrews 4:12

"The word of God, which is at work in you who believe." 1 Thessalonians 2:13.

"Anything that comes to us from the God of the Word will deepen our love for the Word of God." A.W. Tozer

A pessimist see the difficulty in every opportunity, an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty- which are you?

Thank you, God, that when things get to be too much for me, when I am feeling defeated, I know I  can come to you and you will be our refuge. You will give us shelter and protection. Thank you that you are our strength. I can't deal with this own strength, but You. We have your incomparably great power (Ephesians 1:19) in us. We can be strong in you and in your mighty power (Ephesians 6:10). We can do all things through you who strengthen us (Philippians 4:13). Thank you, Lord, that you are an ever-present help in trouble. You are always there when we need you. You don't always take the trouble away, but you help us in it. You make it possible for us to handle it.!You are with us even in the shadow of death (Psalm 23:4). Therefore we will not fear. We will not fear! Whatever happens, whatever we have to face, we will not fear! You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). We will not fear!"

"Teach me. O Lord, the way of Thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end." Psalm 119:33
