Today’s Inspiration: “The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.” Romans 8:6 NIV. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God’s love for us as our heavenly Abba Father. Many people may not have good or godly fathers and few may not even have one. The foundation of the Kingdom of God is His love for us through Christ Jesus, who gave His life for us at the Cross of Calvary so that we as sinners could be saved by grace. 1 Corinthians 3:11. When a child makes a mistake, he or she is afraid of the punishment, and could mistaken the father as a judge rather than a Dad.
Know this that God love us more than our sins, iniquities and transgressions, far beyond our faults, flaws, and failings. To know grace, we need faith to give our hearts to God like a child who seeks the father’s arms, embrace, and elevation. Walking in the spirit is to walk in the love of God. For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. Romans 8:14-17.
Prayer: O Lord my God, thank you for your love and fatherly guidance daily. May I walk in your love and ways in the Spirit and not by the flesh of my own desires. It is through Christ, I know and experienced your unconditional, unfailing, and ending love for me. I will never have lack because of your richness and I will never be alone because of your faithfulness, in Jesus' Name, Amen
