MFM Daily Devotional May 14, 2022 MESSAGE
Failure to walk in obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit will result in powerlessness, failure and disappointment. It behoves us therefore as believers to walk in total obedience to Him.
When we are totally yielded to the Holy Spirit, we stand to experience a lot of benefits such as the following: wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to know the truth and how to apply it to specific situations (1 Corinthians 12:8). He gives us strength such that even when we are tired, we do not expire or burn out. Many believers are burning out today because they lack the wisdom of the Holy, which the Bible says is profitable to direct (Ecclesiastes 10:10b).
The Holy Spirit helps us not to get discouraged by the challenges that we face as children of God in our daily activities and life generally. When we are aware that it is by the power of the Holy Spirit that we move and not by our own power or might, we are able to forge ahead to accomplish any assignment He has for us, no matter how difficult they may be (Zechariah 4:6).
We rely on God to see us through rather than try to manipulate or scheme to achieve our goals. So, even when we experience distress, we will not become negatively desperate or cut corners to get things done as children of God.
When we do God’s work with the help of the Holy Spirit, and according to His leading, we will be successful and blessed, no matter what is happening around us. However, the fact that we are walking in the Spirit does not mean that life will be easy. But we will continue, knowing that we have a Helper who will never leave us nor forsake us. That is our confidence (Romans 4:21).
- Father Lord, baptise me with the power of the Holy Ghost, in the name of Jesus.
- Grace to live in complete obedience to the Holy Spirit, come upon my life, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord, release Your warrior angels to scatter the camp of my enemy, in the name of Jesus.
- Let my life be released from every bondage, in the name of Jesus.
- Every wall of satan against my life, be broken, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise and let my head be lifted up, in the name of Jesus.
- The labour of my hands shall prosper, in the name of Jesus.
