Take time to pray and ask the Spirit to guide you as you seek the Lord today.
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”
Ephesians 6:18 NLT
- We are commanded to pray in the Spirit all the time! So… look at a headline in today’s news and write a prayer. I challenge you to pray often for the events you see in the news and swirling around you every day. Prayer is powerful because God is powerful! Alleluia!
Ask the Lord to guide you with how and when to pray each day. Ask the Spirit to reveal to you what burdens Him, and seek God’s will in all circumstances. We may not even know what or how to pray, but we know that “the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.” Romans 8:26. May we all be daily prayer warriors. Praying for you.
How to Act Like a True Christian – Digging Deep Into Romans 12:9-21
“Abhor what is evil.”
Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today. Remember to read the entire passage.
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”
- When did evil make it’s first appearance (see Genesis 3. Especially 3:21-24)?
- Who initiated it’s entrance?
- Ephesians 6:12 reflects on exactly that. Rejecting evil is rejecting who?
- Ephesians 6 goes on to remind us how to combat this spiritual darkness. What are the pieces of armor.
- Romans 1:18-32 gives us a glimpse of evil in our world. Yet…we are told instead how to live our lives (1 Peter 1:14)?
- We can live transformed lives through the blood of Jesus. He allows us to overcome evil by the power of the cross. I try to use Philippians 4:8 as a benchmark in regards to what I watch, listen to, say. Write down the things we are called to think about.
We are called to take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ. May Jesus guide and protect you as you seek to reject evil and follow the way of the truth! Praying for you…
