Humble yourselves.

James 4: 10 AMP

“Humble yourselves [with an attitude of repentance and insignificance] in the presence if the Lord, and He will exalt you [He will lift you up, He will give you purpose].”

I mistakenly thought that if I had present myself as humble I needed to be weak, shameful or dishonourable in demeanour. Honestly, this frightened me, I have been through so much and had been humiliated on so many levels, I had a difficult time in showing my humility.

I prayed about my life, I repented and in time I was able to humble myself before the Lord. Accepting Him in my life and believing that He has accepted me as I am. I think in my own haughtiness I relied on my own strength for many years. I believe in God’s grace that He isn’t limited by our human flaws.

I believe all things are possible with God. I can count on Him to save me and I did.

Prayer

Abba Father, today in humility I stand before You, I repent of my own importance and haughtiness. I pray for forgiveness of sins and I ask Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth take Your place in my life. Holy Spirit You are welcome! In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Amen

Are you empowered by the Holy Spirit?

Galatians 5: 24 – 25 AMP

“And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature together with its passions and appetites. If we [claim to] live by the [Holy] Spirit, we must also walk by the Spirit [with personal integrity, godly character, and moral courage – our conduct empowered by the Holy Spirit].”

I believe the Holy Spirit gives each one of us the necessary chutzpah to get through difficult times. I have heard some of the ladies tell me that I am a strong woman. What they don’t know is that I used to be so fragile and so afraid. The one person that was supposed to be my friend turned out to be my biggest enemy. This person sold me out and threw me to the dogs so to speak. I had to defend and protect my children from such horrible things. I wasn’t able to back down but I had to stand up, against whatever came our way. I had no option, there was no one that I trusted and I was on my knees all the time.

I believe the Holy Spirit was with me all the time, I cried all the time, calling out to God and holding on for dear life. I didn’t have the nerve to let go of God I couldn’t do it on my own. In case you think I am harbouring ill feelings, bitterness and unforgiving towards this person – think again. I have asked God to forgive that person; I also forgive this person so that I can move forward in The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Prayer

Abba Father, humbly I come into Your presence today and I pray please help me to outlaw all bitterness from my life and fill me with love and with total forgiveness and acceptance of others. I want to live sacrificial seeking every moment to love and serve You Lord God in holiness, humility and humble prayer. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Amen

Come, Holy Spirit I need You!

I am praying for the Holy Spirit to activate my life so that I am able to reach the lost and bring them to the Kingdom of God, through the Bible and scripture.

1 Corinthians 2: 14

“But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

We need to remember that the Holy Spirit forms part of the Trinity: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. This tells me that the Holy Spirit is the third person in the God Head. I have read that the Holy Spirit is the representation of the holiness of God. His name is Holy.

The Holy Spirit works with the Father and the Son helping us to understand the Word of God and to grow spiritually. The Holy Spirit is everywhere and we can trust in Him. The Holy Spirit has feelings, emotions and a will. The Holy Spirit reminds us of what the Lord Jesus Christ did for all of us and teaches us.

Prayer

Abba Father, it is my heart’s desire that the Holy Spirit will teach me and help me going forward, I cannot do this on my own. Lord I am guilty of so many things in my life, I repent and ask to forgive me. If I have disappointed You humbly I repent and ask You to please forgive me in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I pray come, Holy Spirit I need You. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth Amen
