“The mature children of God are those who are moved by the impulses of the Holy Spirit. And you did not receive the spirit of religious duty leading you back into the fear of never being good enough. But you have received the Spirit of full acceptance, enfolding you into the family of God. And you will never feel orphaned, for as he rises up within us our spirits join him in saying the words of tender affection. Beloved Father! For the Holy Spirit makes God’s fatherhood real to us as he whispers into our innermost being, “You are God’s beloved child!” Romans 8:14-16 TPT The Passion Translation
Prayer: God we receive your Holy Spirit. Draw us out of the old places where we have been into the new places in your spirit. We repent for following things we shouldn’t have been following. We renew our quest to follow you alone. Jesus, come be the Lord of our lives. We worship you. Your kingdom come, your will be done in our lives, our family and our nation today in Jesus’ name amen.
