Lately, my thoughts and focus have mainly been on living in the Spirit. The scripture in Galatians 5:25, "If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit", resonates in me.
Being reminded each day that I have the Spirit of God living in me absolutely humbles me and amazes me time and time again! I am totally in awe of God's love in many, many ways...although this truth is positively the most compelling.
So I am asking God each day to equip me to walk by His Spirit. Asking Him to give me spiritual eyesight, spiritual hearing, spiritually keen sensitivity to the Holy Spirit. I am waiting on Him and His perfect timing to speak in certain situations of relationships I treasure. I am always asking Him for His strength in my "struggles in life". I am totally depending on Him, to prepare me to JOYFULLY go to China
to impact those I will encounter, for Him!
I am also daily asking Him for the renewing and transforming of my mind. Only by the Spirit working this in me can I break loose from the conformity of this world. Offering myself as a living sacrifice to Him can only be done in the Spirit. My mind is fallen, it has a bent - a mindset that is hostile to the Supremacy of God. Not naturally seeing God as infinitely more praiseworthy than me. My mind is not by nature a God-worshipping mind, it is by nature a self-worshipping mind.
So I have asked my God to ingrain in my soul and my mind the truth that I need to ask for daily renewing of the Holy Spirit. That I will be radically dependent upon Him. This is my only hope of desiring the Will of God. My only hope of my life being worship to the glory of Christ!
