Controlled By The Spirit

Controlled By The Spirit

You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ.  Romans 8:9  NIV

How we make it through our day?  Do we struggle through the responsibilities we face as best we can?  Do we take our problems to the Lord, but then stand up from our prayer time and go out to handle the situation on our own?

The person, who is dedicated to finding themselves with God, will seek to change this far-too-normal routine.  The true follower of Christ will be too consumed with turning their faith into an intimate walk with their Lord.  For those who we have heard of salvation in Christ, there is hope!  We can move to a new Spirit!  We can move to the Spirit of Christ!  He can live within us!  He can move us to seek God´s Way at all times!  He can drive us, guide us, and help us where before we were powerless!

But beware!  If we do find ourselves leaving the Lord when we leave our prayer time, we must recognize the distance!  If we find ourselves trying to go through the day on our own, we must call the alarm!  We must make our relationship the priority!  We must strengthen our walk with Jesus!  We must seek to move and to be controlled by none other than the Spirit of Christ!

Dear Lord,

Help us seek You, find You, and walk with You at all times and be completely controlled by Your Spirit in us we pray!

Amen
