Isaiah 49 : 8
In an acceptable time I have heard You,   says the Lord.

Above and Beyond!

John 14:
15 "If you love me, obey me;
16 and I will ask the Father and he will give you another Comforter, and he will never leave you.
17 He is the Holy Spirit, the Spirit who leads into all truth.
The world at large cannot receive him, for it isn't looking for him and doesn't recognize him.
But you do, for he lives with you now and some day shall be in you.
1 John 4:
13 And he has put his own Holy Spirit into our hearts as a proof to us that we are living with him and he with us.
Ephesians 1:
13 And because of what Christ did, all you others too, who heard the Good News about how to be saved, and trusted Christ, were marked as belonging to Christ by the Holy Spirit, who long ago had been promised to all of us Christians.
14 His presence within us is God's guarantee that he really will give us all that he promised; and the Spirit's seal upon us means that God has already purchased us and that he guarantees to bring us to himself.
This is just one more reason for us to praise our glorious God.
(The Living Bible)

Prayer:      Father,
this morning I want You to know that I love You and want with all my heart to obey You.
Thank You for giving me the Companion of Your choosing for me: Your Holy Spirit, who will never leave me.
It is so wonderful to know this:
   that He is always with me - always.
   and that the day has come when He is also in me.
Lord Holy Spirit,
today I bow my life to Your truth. If there are any places in me where what I think is the truth does not measure up to Your truth, please adjust me in that area.
Help me always to look for You and recognise where You are at work and fit in with what You are doing.
I welcome You today because You are the One who is proof that I belong to the Lord God of heaven.
Thank You that because I have heard the Good News of the Lord Jesus and trusted Him as the Christ of God, this means that
You have come into my life as the guarrantee that I will receive all that the Lord God Almighty has promised me.
Today I rejoice in You because Your presence in my life lets me know for sure that God has really purchased me and You are the wonderful guarrantee that He has placed as His seal upon my life.
I open my life to all You have to impart into my life today, Lord Holy Spirit    and I bow to Your will for me.
Thank You, Lord Jesus for sending me Your wonderful Companion to share my life always,      Amen.

See you tomorrow, God willing,
when you'll find a new thought here to challenge you!
Meanwhile, have a great day walking with the Lord!
