Galatians: Chapter 5 v 16.
So I say, live by the Spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
Dear God help us today not to gratify those desires of the flesh that are not right by you. We do need your help God, we cannot do any thing good by ourselves without You and Jesus, by the help of your Holy Spirit. Amen.
Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’
So where are we at today then? What desire of the flesh are we thinking of today to do that we should not do? Are we going to argue with our friends and neighbours, gorge ourselves with unhealthy food, try to steal from the Supermarkets, or take money that we are not entitled to. There seems to be a lot of unholy desires of the flesh including coveting our friends husband or wives, getting drunk and disorderly, taking people to court for no good reason to do so except to satisfy our own thinking that we are right and they are wrong.
Today let our desire be to please God our Heavenly Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit.
Maybe we can do something nice for someone (God would be pleased about that) what can we do then for them? One good thing do do is to pray for whoever comes to mind or whoever we meet during the daytime. No need to stand and pray so that they can see, it is best to pray privately in our own Prayer time with The Holy Spirit.
I Pray you have a lovely day * today *
May God our Father in Heaven Bless you and your family wherever you are

Luke: Chapter 4 verses 18-19
“The Spirit of The Lord is on me,
because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor,
He has sent me to proclaim freedom
for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to release the oppressed,
to proclaim the year of The Lord’s favour”
Today we can proclaim the Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ.
Praise Him that He will anoint us to do so.
Let us ask for His special anointing of The Holy Spirit afresh today.
From the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.
The above Scripture was spoken by Jesus but we should remember that He has asked us also to tell people about Him. To proclaim the Gospel of the Lord is to let others know about our Lord Jesus, about God our Heavenly Father and about The Holy Spirit. We should not be ashamed of the Gospel of Christ because as it is written in the Holy Bible – the Gospel is to be preached throughout the world before Jesus comes back again.
As Christians we know this but really speaking we rarely talk about the Lord to our friends, family or workmates. Why are we hesitant to do this?
Mainly because we do not like being ridiculed but Jesus said that we as Christians will be made to look foolish sometimes when we talk about Him to unbelievers……..But how are they going to know if we do not speak out the truth so that they too came come into Salvation before they leave this earth.
All we have to do is to plant the seed of the faith that we have and tell them what we believe and The Holy Spirit may even convict them of His Presence.
A friend and I talked a long time ago and we agreed with each other that once you have lived with The Holy Spirit in your life you would never want to live without Him.
Jesus sent Him to be our Comforter, our Guide in our everyday living – He is the Spirit of Jesus – we need no other Spirit to Guide us. He is with us forever when we invite Jesus into our heart – that is into our life –
And do you know that our God (Our Father in Heaven) loves us and He never sleeps – He will hear us when we pray day or night where ever we are. So Jesus sent His Holy Spirit to help us to Pray.
Why not give Jesus a go if you have not already done so.
He is just waiting to hear from you.
If you have never thought of asking Jesus to be in your life, now is a good time to ask Him if He would like to be part of your life – you may be surprised that He would say yes if you would like to have Him. You need to mean it though, we cannot be flippant as it is quite an important step to take, because then you would be a Christian and belong to the Kingdom of God. What an honour that would be.
* Have a lovely Day today *
* May God Bless You *
