God's Holy Fire: 'Following the Spirit's Lead'

Monday, July 3, 2023

Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit's leading in every part of our lives.
— Galatians 5:25 NLT

Key Thought

We are given new life — born again into a new kind of life (John 3:3-7; Titus 3:3-7) in Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. Since the Spirit is the source of our new life, then shouldn't we ask the Spirit to take the lead in every part of our lives? Absolutely!

Today's Prayer

O Father, I want you to take the lead in every part of my life through the work of your Holy Spirit. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
