Today Reminder - 12 March 2012 (Sunrise)

My prayer for you for today is a prayer for renewal in your life, a new you with new thoughts and a new attitude with a new nature created to be like God, in Jesus name.

Ephesians 4:21-24
Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from Him, throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.

Sunrise. I love the way the African sun breaks through the darkness and brings light all over the land. As the warm sun rays touch the ground and embrace the plants, they start to lighten up and you can almost see how they rejoice in the sunlight warming them up, after a cool night. Even the animals come out of there shelter to bask in the morning sun warming up their bodies and almost being renewed for the new day ahead. 

When Jesus brings light into your life after you have given up your old ways, your mind and body goes through a transformation. The warmth of His love fills your spirit and you start to bloom and radiate with His light. As the plants open their flowers to be filled with this life giving light you too must open your heart and mind and allow the Holy Spirit to fill it with God’s glory. Let the Holy Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes so that you can be a new creation, created to be like God. 

My dear friend, don’t let this world pull you into the shade to keep you cold and stiff so that you cannot feel the warmth of God’s love. Instead ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom and strength, so that you will see through the traps the enemy has laid and that you will know how to avoid being caught in them. Let the warm light of Jesus radiate through you so that you can touch the lives of those you meet with Godly strength and Godly wisdom. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to show Jesus, even if it is only a smile, a hug, a little time, a little patience or a little understanding. When Jesus is in your heart, He should be in all of you.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus, with your new nature, created to be like God – truly righteous and holy.
