Still sharing some basic Christian thoughts I believe we should always be aware of. It’s a blessed week already.
I’ve got a simple thought for us from the Bible. One thing I’m certain of is that when we open our hearts to God’s word and prayer, we are never left the same way. Something has happened to our hearts.
From the previous post in this series, we now see that we are not alone because we have, not just nearby, but inside us the Holy Spirit. And I believe that because of this we can wake up to life as bold folks.
We can face life knowing that we are aided by the greatest force in the universe!
[[Rom 8:15]] BSB For you did not receive a spirit of slavery that returns you to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
This is a reality we have been called to be aware of. The Spirit we have received is not unto fear but unto confident declaration that God is our Father. We must see that this is really huge! That God, the creator of all, the Father of lights, the A L M I G H T Y is your Father(!) should blow your mind afresh everyday! In fact, knowing that we are God’s habitation is enough reason to be bold to face life. The believer is never without help! God is strong for us.
[[1Jn 4:4]] KJV Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
See! The Greater One lives in you! And this is the seal of our victory. We are bold being aware of this.
Ephesians 3:16 KJV
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
There is a working of the Spirit in the believer that stirs up boldness. Paul was praying for the Ephesians that they be strengthened with might by the Holy Spirit that lives in them. This means as we pray, we can expect to see boldness and strength coursing through our souls. We are emboldened in the place of prayer. When we pray we begin to see for real that God is for us and He is mighty in us.
