Everyday God’s Home in Us
Life is hard. Can we do the hard stuff like forgiving those who never apologize or a health report that is terminal? We can live free. The moment you receive Christ you are filled with the Holy Spirit and so you have the potential to live a life of victory over fear, over sin. This potential is released by faith as you surrender control of your life. 2 Timothy 1:14 we read how the Holy Spirit makes His home in us! The Holy Spirit will lead you and become involved in every decision you make—both major and minor. He leads you by peace and wisdom and He speaks to your heart.
So now go to the Old Testament and read in Ezekiel, God’s promise when the day would come when He would give people a new heart and put His Sprit within them. Under the old covenant, the Holy Spirit only came upon people for special purposes, but He did not live inside them as He does with us who know Him. THAT is crazy amazing…everyday.
