For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope.
— Galatians 5:5 NIV

Key Thought

Waiting is hard. Waiting for something or someone special is incredibly hard. Waiting for our transformation to be like Jesus, full of righteousness and grace, is impossibly hard without the gift of the Holy Spirit. But with the Spirit, we eagerly hope and expect to see all that God has prepared for us and all that he will transform within us!

Today's Prayer

O Father, I eagerly wait to see what your Spirit will do in me and through me. Please use me to your glory! In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
