God is looking for a relationship with you each and every day. He wants you to want to be with Him eah and every day. He wants a relationship with us and to trust Him for everything we need. Some Christians let the Holy Spirit be watered down in their life. When we do that the Holy Spirit can not work in our lives. He guides us so we go forward and not backwards. If you are standing still then you are actually going backwards. If you let the Holy Spirt consume you then He will burn the dross off. As long as you let Him, He will refine you like gold by filling us with more of Himself and burning away everything that is not of Him. The Holy Spirt gives you strength you need to follow His direction for your life. Without Him you can not face what is ahead, for the enemy would have fun throwing you to and fro and following every doctrine that comes along. We need to pray to be strengthened with the might through His Spirit in our inner man. It is not a weakness to depend upon God it is actually a strength.

Have you ever wondered why Jesus needed to be baptized by John the Baptist? It was because He knew the Holy Spirit would come upon Him. To move into what God wanted in His life. The Holy Spirit had to fall upon Him in order for Him to start His ministry. So this is showing us that we have to have the Holy Spirit dwelling in us to move in all God has for us. So if Jesus needed to be empowered by the Holy Spirit and look at who He was, then how much more do we need to be empowered by the Holy Spirit. Jesus said you shall receive power as the Holy Spirit comes upon you. that means there is a direct correlation between the Holy Spirit and power. As long as we dwell in righteousness, the Holy Spirit can dwell in us. Even though the Holy Spirit dwells in us, we can still grieve Him and quench His work in us. We grieve Him by our sin. We quench His work in us by ignoring Him, neglecting to acknowledge His presence in us, or refusing to follow his leading. So we need to respond to His presence in us and not just when we become desperate for it.

If you are truly walking with God, the devil will come after you to get you to stop believing in God. If you are not getting attacked then you are not walking with the Lord the way you should be walking. The devil knows the true Christians and he wants to destroy you. His plan is to take as many of God's people with him when his time is up. In the Word of God, He shows Jesus how to defeat the devil with Is Word. But the only way you can use His word to defeat the enemy, is to know that Word. The only way to know the Word is to constantly be in His Word. The time is getting short and if you don't have God's Word in your heart then the devil could defeat you. When the enemy comes and encroaches upon your life, humble yourself before God and declare your dependence upon the lord. Have complete faith in His Word and pray for him to move in each circumstance. Pray for his glory and the leading of His Spirit daily. Worship in the beauty of His holiness. When you following His leading believe for victory. Confuse the enemy with praising and worshiping the Lord daily.

The Holy Spirit will always directly lead you to bond with Godly people for spiritual and personal input into your life. As always He will lead you away from ungodly people. The Bible shows us through the scriptures how important it is to have godly friends, and you should not ignore it. Bad friends corrupt us, and read God's words to see what happens when you allow them in your lives. One of the worst examples of the terrible influence of bad friends is David's son Amnon. The scriptures show how this runs all the way down to Absalom turning on his father. Also, look at Job's friends. You will see with these situations that you want to pay attention to the leading of the Holy Spirit. We must be connected to other believers so we can stand strong with one another. Pray for one another. Yes, pray for others when the Holy Spirit brings them to your mind. Your prayers may be life or death to someone that needs them. In this day and age, don't pass by praying for someone. If King David would of not strayed from the leading of the Lord, his family may not have been destroyed.

It is important to lead someone to the Lord, but it is also important to teach them to pray.
Start out praying for them and when they decide they want to pray, pray with them. Prayer is a powerful ministry that every Christian should be doing daily. Pray for people in your life daily and when the Holy Spirit moves on you to ask someone, "Can I pray for you?", pray. People across this land needs prayer and when you pray God listens, when it comes from the heart. When you walk daily with the Lord, people can see the love and peace you have. They want that, but they don't know how to ask for it. Well, pray for them, that God will open their eyes and ears to hear His still small voice. Some think, if I pray and God does not answer, then how can they believe. It is not our job to get the answer, our job is to pray and God's job is to answer. God will bring people into your life to pray for. Even move you in your life for them to come across your path. You just never know what God has in store for you or them. When you say, you will pray, you better because God does not take that lightly. Pray when you say you will pray, so you don't forget to

When you have the Holy Spirit moving in your lives you can show others how the Lord loves them. Everyone is special in Gods sight, but the enemy makes them think they are not worthy or they have done too much that the Lord would not even look at them. But that is a lie from the devil because He loves all and wants all to repent and come unto him. Show others the hope you have in believing and trusting in the Lord for all things. It can be so rewarding when you share the love of the Lord with others, to help them find the way everlasting. The Lord is our strength and our every present help in time of trouble. If you see one that is hurting, ask God to guide you in every step of the way to open the door to talk to them. People in this world are lost and you would not want one to go to Hell, not a pretty place for anyone or anything. So reach out and touch someone with the love of the Lord. Let the Lord guide you in your words, but you need to step out in faith believing He will give you the words to touch that one that needs the Lord. Be strong and of good courage for God is with you when you desire to walk in the way He would walk. Help save someone for the Lord.

Most people don't think to pray for their country. If you are walking with God, you should be able to see what is going on in this country with the evilness that is trying to take over this land. The sin in this land invites God's judgement. You do not want to see what can happen when He takes His hands off and there is no protection. This land was founded on the Word of God and now man has taken God out of everything. First it was schools, then public buildings, and then Christmas was removed until our present President brought that back. But we are not to sit back and think someone else should change the evil that is spreading. What we are seeing that even ones in our government sit back and doesn't stand up for righteousness. Well, you talk about that, but what do you think the Christians are doing by not praying for the wrongs that are being done. They are sitting back and doing nothing if they are not praying for God to move. God hears each and everyone that prays with a true heart. If you read God's Word, you know that we will all be accountable for what we say and do at the end times. D o you want to be one of those Christians that don't pray and think it is someone else responsibility.

You asked the Lord in your heart and He is Holy. His Spirit is Holy. There for, you should be holy. This does not mean you isolate yourself from the world. You just don't want to be influenced by the ways of the world, separate yourself. So seek the counsel of God in everything and He will direct your path. You must believe and have faith that His perfect will is what is good for you. When you walk with one step in the world and one step in God's world. Then you can loose something valuable that God has for you. Is it worth loosing what God has for you, just to please the world. There are all kinds of things that can pull you away from God. It can be love ones, friends, or even ungodly things you have in your house that you don't want to let go of. Refused to let anything pull you away from God. Even though the world will try to divert you away from God's purpose for you. Reject the counsel of the world and seek the counsel of God. How many times have we lost something valuable that God had for us, all because we did not separate ourselves from the world?

Be led by His Spirit because Jesus has power over all disease. When you read His Word, Jesus went about healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. God hears our prayers and He moves if you are believing He can when you pray. When you walk before Him in truth and with a loyal heart and do what is good in God sight, He responds. So even in the face of death, pray for a miracle. When Jesus died on that Cross at Calvary, he declared Victory and said IT IS FINISHED. Do you believe that or not? Do you believe His Word or not? Ask God to help any unbelief within you. Divine healing is a gift from God and was accomplished by His death and resurrection on the Cross. By whose stripes you were healed. So He not only suffered for your sins, but also for your sickness. Having faith in God and His ability to heal will bring healing to us. So believe and watch Him work.

If you are saved, you have the Holy Spirit dwelling in you. Therefore, yoiu should be worshiping in Spirit and Truth. The Holy Spirit guides us in all truth. As you worship, you must trust, rest, and believe that He can do all that He says He will do. When you rise out of bed each day, you should start to worship Him. That should be the first and last thing on your mind. Go expecting He will do miracles in your life, in your family, and all that you pray about. Does your earthly Dad give you what you ask for, if it is in your best interest. How much more will your Heavenly Father give. He is your Heavenly Father, Bread of Life, All-Knowing, Light of the World, Lord of Lords, Kig of Kings, Stronghold in the Day of Trouble, Resting Place, Refuge from the Storm, Shad from the Heat, Rewarder, Shield, Sustainer, and Merciful, thank Him that He is these things to you. When you look at His names, each one is worthy of praise.

This is the time we all should bow down and worship the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. He has given you a special gift of salvation which is the most precious gift of all. Some take it for granted, but you know if you were the only one on earth, He would of still came and died for you. The love He has for you, is the love you need to have for Him. Jesus should be your everything and if He isn't, you need to check your heart and where it is. Your desire to worship Him at all times is where our heart should be. Let go of all of you and grab hold of all of Him. You won't be sorry, for He is all you need. Thank Him for all He has done, doing and yet to come. Trust in Him with your whole heart and lean not to your own understanding.

If you allow the Holy Spirit to indwell in you, then He will enable you to resist temptation. When you are tempted to do something that is not of God, you are enticed to do evil. The devil is very sneaky and knows how to sway you to do what is against God. Look at what he did to Eve and he still does to this day, the same deception that he did so long ago. So ask the Holy Spirit to lead you each day, so you don't give into your own weak and sinful nature. So pray each day that the Lord will lead you away from the trap of the enemy and in the right direction. God will allow some things in your lives as a test to see if we will choose Him, to obey Him, serve Him, reverence Him, and cling to Him no matter what tempttion arises. Jesus was tempted just as we are and He used the Word against the devil, just as we are instructed to do through His Word. Don't doubt God, resist temptation. The devil wants to steal, kill, and destroy. S o pray harder. and with reverence to the Lord. He will see our heart and hear your prayers. T rust, obey and rely on the one that has redeemed you.

The enemy will always draw you into pride, but the Holy Spirit will lead you away from pride. He comes to you with lies and make you feel that you are great and deserving. If you follow him, you will fall, maybe not right at first, but yes you will fall. You are told that you are responsible for all that is accomplished in your life. When these thoughts come to you, cast them down and out of our mind. He is trying to take you down and if you let him, he will succeed. God hates pride because it is rebellion. In the last days perilous times will come. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy. Each one of these has pride as it's root. When good things come into your life, don't accept pride, thank the Lord that He has blessed you. The fall that is preceded by pride is always an enormous one. God is why you have what you have, not that you have done something to get it. No matter how faithful you think you are, anyone can become prideful. Ask the Lord to show you when you are entertaining thoughts of pride and help you cast it down.

You must watch out and not allow yourself to grow cold. Stay in communication with the Lord to keep the fire burning within you. Don't let outside influences draw you away from spending time with the Lord. God wants us to cut away anything in our heart that keeps us from Him. He requires reverence, live his way, love and serve Him with your whole heart and keep His commandments. If there is anything in your life that keeps you from that, you need to remove it. Sin separates us from God, but busyness, obsessing over work, the internet, television. If you feel you have been doing these things and you don't have that closeness that you need with the Lord, then ask Him to revel what you need to change in your life. Get rid of wrong influences, jealousy or covetousness, tying to be like others, controlled by money. These are things that can draw you away from God and the enemy does it slowly, so you may not notice it is happening. Ask Him to show you when you are walking backwards.

It is Christmas time and people have lost the true meaning of Christmas. You don't even feel the spirit at this time anymore. People have taken Christ out of everything in thier lives and the Spirit has been shut down. You can see what this is doing to our world. The church has let the world creep in and take over this world even though this world was created by God's Word. You see the chaos and evil running rampant. What can change this is God's people rising up and seek His face in prayer and fasting. People think this is a time of getting, but it should be time for giving. Over two thousand years ago, Jesus gave you the best gift of all, salvation. He gave His life to save us. Would you do that for someone? You should be on your knees every day praising and exalting Him for who He is and what He has done for you. Bring Him back where He belongs. Christ and Him Crucified should be what is on our mind this Christmas season and all year long.

As we start into a new year, you want to draw ever closer to our Lord. The time is short and He is about to come. You want to be ready or you won't be caught up with Him. Don't be caught without the oil of the Word and the relationship with the Lord. Our Father who art in heaven, hallow be though name. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts as we forgive debtors. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen. When you say this, pray believe it and place it in your heart. This is time to pray fervently for your loved ones to come to the knowledge of God. God hears our prayers when they line up with His Word. His desire is for all to be saved. Don't give up, keep knocking, seeking, and asking for them to be delivered and go in the rapture. our life and their life depend on it. Believe as Abraham believed, trust as Abraham trusted.

As you walk with the Lord, you need to walk in faith. Faith in Him, that He can do all things. Faith is believing till you receive, not the faith of the microwave that the answer should be instant. That faith is not believing. Believing is to have faith that it will happen, but just in God's timing not yours. Don't doubt or give up for then you are not believing. God says trust and believe till it comes. When you constantly think about something that you want, you are not trusting. Also, some allow fear to come into their lives which brings doubt. That stops the work of the Lord in all areas. You need to get to the place that even if the answer does not come, you will be fine. That is letting go and letting God work. In the days ahead we will have to trust and believe for the end is coming soon and you want to be caught up and not swept away. Get close to the Lord for your life will depend on it.

We know the most important thing to do for someone is to lead them to the Lord. But the second most important thing to do for someone is to pray with them or for them. Prayer can be powerful if you spend time with the Lord daily. It is our job to pray and the Lord to answer. Ask the Lord to bring someone in your path that would need to know the Lord or would need prayer. God will answer this prayer for it lines up with His Word. God will open doors. You want people to see Jesus in you. When someone needs prayer they will know who to ask because people are watching just as God watches us. You want your actions to glorify the Lord. Even if you only silently pray for that person without their knowledge, that prayer has enough power to draw them into a relationship with God in the future. Prayer is the means by which we help others get close to God. As you pray for others and with others, you would have changed lives for eternity.

When you fear that means you believe God is not in control. Jesus connects fear with lack of faith and that's what tormenting fear is. It is written, without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. You need a faith that you can cast down all fear and ask the Holy Spirit to grow faith in you. Jesus says have faith, don't doubt. Believe God is with you and He is diligently working on your behalf if you trust in Him. That means you must know that you know that He hears you and answers you. Ask Him to teach you to pray in faith without being double minded, for anyone that is double minded does not receive from God. You need mountain moving faith, ask for it and believe you can have it in order to glorify the Lord. Seek Him with your whole heart, for it is written, He rewards those when they seek Him. Confess that fear and doubt is sin and ask for forgiveness.
