Today Reminder - 09 January 2012

My prayer for you for today is that you will live a life of goodness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. In the name of Jesus.

Romans 13:14
Instead, clothe yourself with the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. And don't let yourself think about ways to indulge your evil desires.

Romans 14:17-19
For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. If you serve Christ with this attitude, you will please God, and others will approve of you, too. So then, let us aim for harmony in the church and try to build each other up.

Clothes do not make the man. It is funny how a small change in our clothes can have a huge effect on our self-confidence. If there is a tiny spot of dirt on your pants or shirt, it seems to highlight itself in every situation you find yourself in and you continuously wonder what people will think. Or maybe your socks does not match or your pants are too tight, whatever the problem it can change your day. When you clothe yourself with the presence of the Lord and you ask the Holy Spirit to dwell in you, you are different, and yes you are going to wonder what people think. When we clothe ourselves with the presence of the Lord it resembles the closeness of your relationship with Him. I think it is how we stand in that relationship, how we see Jesus in our lives. He must be so close to you as your clothing is, and a small change in that should affect you completely. The closer we will get to the Lord the more comfortable we will become with ourselves and the less we will worry about what others think. You see it is not what we do or what we did, but it is what God does through us. In the end I do not want people to see me for what I did, but I want them to say that God is awesome when they see me. God must be my clothing, my whole self must reflect Him to the world. Let the Holy Spirit guide you in this process of being clothed by the Lord and let us try and live a life of goodness and joy, so that we can live in harmony with each other and build each other up. My prayers are with you friend of Jesus, may you find that Jesus is closer to you with every moment. 

God blessed us with rain during the night, I always seem to sleep so much better with the soft sound of rain on the roof. It is going to be a beautiful day.

Have a great day!
