Easy steps on How to Pray in Faith to Be Filled with the Holy Spirit

Morning Devo, Oct. 2nd

Scripture: Colossians 1:5 (KJV) “The hope which is laid up for you in heaven.”

In the bustling world we live in, it’s easy to become preoccupied with the concerns of the present—our daily routines, responsibilities, and the challenges we face. However, the Word of God calls us to set our sights beyond the immediate and to fix our hope on the heavenly promises that await us.

Colossians 1:5 reminds us of the hope that is laid up for us in heaven. This hope is not a mere wishful thinking; it’s a confident expectation based on the unchanging faithfulness of our heavenly Father. In a world filled with uncertainties, our hope in Christ provides a firm anchor for our souls.

As we navigate the complexities of life, let us remember the eternal hope we have in Christ. It’s a hope that transcends circumstances and offers assurance of a glorious inheritance. While we fulfill our earthly responsibilities, may we also fix our eyes on the heavenly prize that awaits us.

Today, take a moment to reflect on the hope laid up for you in heaven. Let it inspire and guide you in your daily walk, knowing that your future is secure in the hands of the One who never fails.

Evening Thought

“A man greatly beloved.” — Daniel 10:11

Child of God, do you hesitate to appropriate this title? Ah! has your unbelief made you forget that you are greatly beloved too? Must you not have been greatly beloved, to have been bought with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot? When God smote his only begotten Son for you, what was this but being greatly beloved?
You lived in sin, and rioted in it, must you not have been greatly beloved for God to have borne so patiently with you? You were called by grace and led to a Saviour, and made a child of God and an heir of heaven. All this proves, does it not, a very great and superabounding love?
Since that time, whether your path has been rough with troubles, or smooth with mercies, it has been full of proofs that you are a man greatly beloved. If the Lord has chastened you, yet not in anger; if he has made you poor, yet in grace you have been rich.
The more unworthy you feel yourself to be, the more evidence have you that nothing but unspeakable love could have led the Lord Jesus to save such a soul as yours.
The more demerit you feel, the clearer is the display of the abounding love of God in having chosen you, and called you, and made you an heir of bliss. Now, if there be such love between God and us let us live in the influence and sweetness of it, and use the privilege of our position.
Do not let us approach our Lord as though we were strangers, or as though he were unwilling to hear us-for we are greatly beloved by our loving Father.
“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” Come boldly, O believer, for despite the whisperings of Satan and the doubtings of thine own heart, thou art greatly beloved. Meditate on the exceeding greatness and faithfulness of divine love this evening, and so go to thy bed in peace.
