If the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also, through his Spirit dwelling in you. Romans 8:11 NIV
I love knowing that God’s spirit who raised Jesus, gives the same life to my mortal body. That spirit is always with me giving me the strength to get through my problems. He doesn’t solve my problems, but guides me to the answers. I don’t have to depend on myself. A little prayer, a little elbow work, and belief gives me the strength to go on.
Did you know that same spirit is with you and that you don’t have to do things alone. Even if you feel alone, you’re not. That spirit and strength is always within you supporting, leading, and loving you. Use prayer this Lent to get closer to your spirit. Spend more time getting close to your inner spirit. You will grow stronger and happier. If the spirit dwelling in Jesus could raise Him from the dead, your spirit can handle your problems.
Lord remind us the You and the Holy Spirit are always with us to lean on. We don’t need to do things alone. We thank him and you for the life giving power strengthening our lives. Help us work hard during Lent to gain a stronger bond with our Holy Spirit. Amen
