Daily Bread 8/28/2023


Daily Bread – August 28, 2023 (The Second Day – Genesis 1:6-8) Ephesians 5:18 – And be not intoxicated with wine as one unsaved, but be continually filled with the Spirit. Continually Filled With The Spirit There is only one way to enjoy the abundant life provided for us through Christ Jesus, and that is to be continually filled with the Spirit. We have to deal with so many things in the high paced life of keeping up with the job and the issues related to the house and family. If we are not careful, we will find ourselves constantly overwhelmed with the cares of this life which will choke the Word of God and prevent it from bringing forth the fruits of the Spirit in our lives. However, if we are willing to cry out to God throughout the day and yield to the Holy Spirit through prayer and praise, the Holy Spirit will fill every dimension of our lives with His glory. In this fellowship, we will not only be so much more happy and pleasant, but we will be filled with the divine ability to move in wisdom and faith instead of human frustration. If you are willing to give yourself to this lifestyle of constantly being filled with the Spirit, then you will literally step into the pages of the Bible as you step into the realm of the unseen where God dwells (2 Corinthians 4:18; Romans 8:6). All we have to do is to be willing to take a drink of the water of the Spirit, and God will provide for us rivers of inspiration and of the goodness of the Spirit flowing forth through our emotions and passions (John 7:37-39). At some point, God’s people are going to have to make a shift from living in the natural realm to living by the Spirit (Romans 8:9; Galatians 5:25). There are so many wonderful things God has for us to experience and do; but if we will not let the Holy Spirit take control of our lives, then we will never really know what they are, nor will we enjoy the glorious life like days of Heaven on Earth (1 Corinthians 2:12; Deuteronomy 11:21). Will you commit your life to the Spirit of God today and begin to worship Him through psalms and hymns and spiritual songs and be what God has created you to be? If you are willing, you will find a realm of glory that will overwhelm your soul with the goodness of God continually! Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
