I have a request.
I want to make sure all who are reading this have acknowledged Jesus as Savior (Romans 10:9-10). If so, would ALL of you please respond with your name, location, and a simple phrase like “I love Jesus” or “I know Jesus as Christ” or any other phrase you like?
There are two reasons for mentioning this. First, because of the upcoming Easter celebration and second, because upon acceptance of Jesus as Savior you were given the Holy Spirit to dwell in you (Eph. 1:13-14, 2 Cor. 1:22, John 14:16-17, Acts 2:38). We need the assistance of the Holy Spirit in our lives to direct, guide, and teach us. If you know Jesus, you have access to the Holy Spirit. Second Timothy 1:6 tell us to “fan into flame the gift of God that is in you”. During the days of the Old Testatment tabernacle, God sent down holy fire on the sacrificial altar and from then on the priests were to keep the fire ablaze – never to let it go out (Leviticus 6:12-13). We have been given the gift of the Holy Spirit (one of the ways He is represented is by fire) and we are not to quench that gift (1 Thessalonians 5:19). We are instructed to fan it into flame! We want the Holy Spirit to be ablaze in us! Don’t settle for a meager fire look for a bon fire!
Without the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives, it is difficult to make the transformations we are attempting to achieve. Some of the works of the Holy Spirit are as teacher (Luke 12:12), supplying power (Acts 1:8), providing insight (Acts 13:9-10) and the affordance of righteousness, peace, and joy (Romans 14:17). These are only some of the scripture reference available to you. As you find more you can post them to encourage our sister DIVAs!
Our aim is for our husbands to perceive us as delightful. We need the assistance of the Holy Spirit to guide us in directing our paths forward. He will supply overflowing peace and joy as we seek reshaping, being transformed into the image of Jesus (Romans 8:29). God is faithful to do it because He poured out this Spirit on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior (Titus 3:6).
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe in Him so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13).
