Sometimes I forget things…I guess some of you do as well. Sometimes I forget important things…I’m hoping I’m not the only one that does that.
Anyway, there’s something I’ve been working to remember at all times…
The Holy Spirit lives in me.
You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you. [Romans 8:9-11 ESV]
I am a temple of God, and the Spirit is within me. (1 Corinthians 3:16 & 1 Corinthians 6:16-19)
I have been given everything I need to live a Godly life.
His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. [2 Peter 1:3-4 ESV]
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. … But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. [Galatians 5:16-18, 22-23 ESV]
We have been given EVERYTHING, the fruit of the Spirit is our…because He is in us. So when the world attacks we can rest on the promises that we have JOY, PEACE…we have PATIENCE…sometimes we may not be accessing it very well, but it’s there.
So this is a little reminder to those who need such things (like me)….He is our source of power, He has given us everything we need…the world does not win. The victory is HIS!
