In this time of prayer and fasting one of things that should be coming to the forefront is this…honoring God in all we do and inspiring people. When we live our lives surrendered to the Holy Spirit, He empowers us to do things that others around us are not. Things like displaying the fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control) when maybe the situation or our emotions want to operate differently. Not only does that help inspire people because they see what “can be” in life’s situations but it also gives glory to God as you share how you’re able to live differently.
This is one of the by-products that is born in our lives as we press in and seek God with all our hearts! So let me ask you a question: What is hot off your press? What is the news coming from your life? Does it honor God and inspire people? Let us begin to ask ourselves these questions and let us listen intently to what the Holy Spirit is saying about this very thing.
Praying for you! Pastor Patrick
