Hi Guys, Today will be such a great day!
The verses for today are,
1 Thessalonians 5:7-8
For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.
Now that we have stepped into Christ, since we are standing strong in Him, we are no longer in darkness; we stand in the light. Other translations say ‘let us be self-controlled.’ Self control is a fruit of the spirit that we need to cultivate. By pursuing self-control many areas of our lives will be brought under Gods rule and authority in doing so we become free in those areas, no longer being bound by fleshly desires. So let us put on faith and love as a breastplate, let us put the hope of Salvation on as a helmet and march on toward Gods future of us in Him; pressing through the troubles, and standing firm in the light of Christ.
Father God, we come before you today to be cleansed of all wrongdoing, to be filled by your presence. Lord, we pray that we would stand in the light today, we would make the choice to pursue self-control, a fruit of the spirit, today. Holy Spirit, we ask that you would fill us with wisdom, and bless us with the fruits of the spirit, as we press on into Gods presence. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen!!!
Have such a blessed day everyone!!!
