A practical challenge…take 10-15 minutes today to do the following:
1. Spend the first couple of minutes worshiping the Lord in song.
2. Pray out loud anything on your heart and mind…worries, struggles, daily needs, concerns, anything that you need to just get out!
3. Quiet yourself before the Lord and listen for the Holy Spirit. Remember that in order to be filled we must allow the Holy Spirit to penetrate our hearts.
Please do this today and everyday and let’s be a people that is continually filled up with the Holy Spirit, everyday!
Lastly, my prayer for you is out of Colossians 1:9-14:
“For this reason also, since the day we heard this, we haven’t stopped praying for you. We are asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, so that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the saints’ inheritance in the light. He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son He loves. We have redemption, the forgiveness of sins, in Him.”
