The Holy Spirit Strengthens You


 HAVE YOU BEEN ASTOUNDED AT HOW DIFFICULT IT IS TO BE A PARENT?
Who would have dreamed that your beautiful little children, or your teenagers, would zap you of so much energy? While caring for their needs you are also expected to run through the thankless repetition of house cleaning, laundry, cooking meals, grocery shopping, driving children to school, play dates or sports. We berate ourselves for finding that the fulfillment we thought we would receive from having a family has flown from our grasp, possibly bringing us frustration or even tears?

WHERE IS THE STRENGTH THAT I SO DESPERATELY NEED?
There is a strength we too often forget to turn to or call upon. When we receive Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord we are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. This is a gift that can never be taken away and that fills us with strength in our everyday life situations. Too often we begin our day without finding encouragement through the Word of God and refreshment by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a gift that keeps on giving. We need to turn our thoughts to His strength, grace, wisdom and leading at every opportunity.

THE WORD OF GOD ENCOURAGES US:
“For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope, for why does one hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it. And in the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.”

EMBRACE THE GIFT!
What a wonderful gift we have been given! Recognize the Living God is residing in your heart and is continually praying for you to receive strength to persevere. As you continue parenting your children, no matter what age, to the best of your ability you are actually pleasing God. Understand that you can call on Him to help you on a daily basis. Nothing is too big or small for our Lord to be actively involved.

LET’S FOCUS ON A PLAN
As you wake in the morning invite the Holy Spirit to be an active part of your day ahead, to immerse you with His presence.

Turn to the Spirit in the hard or frustrating moments and find His strength and wisdom to increase hope and trust in Him.

Praise the Lord and thank Him for His Holy Spirit that helps you persevere. Take a moment and remember the good things that He has done for you.

Now put a genuine smile on your face and enjoy the day!
