Wig’s Word of God Today 12-26-2011
For it will not be you who speak but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. Matthew 10:20
Acts 6:8-10; 7:54-59, Psalm 31 & Matthew 10:17-22
I often invoke the Holy Spirit prior to praying, speaking or writing to give me confidence as Promised by Christ Himself. Usually this comes from the Holy Spirit prayer that many of us say to accomplish living in His Truth in every step we take. It can also be as easy as just praying; “Come Spirit. Lead me. Guide me. Teach me. In Jesus Name be my Light. Amen” Or many times I’ll pray the prayer as it was taught to me by a spiritual advisor in an RCIA program some years ago when I was baptized into the Faith at the age of 30.
“Come Holy Spirit. Fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of Your love. Send forth Your Spirit and we shall be created and You shall renew the face of the earth. Let us pray. O God, Who did instruct the hearts of thy faithful by the Light of the Holy Spirit. Grant that by the same Spirit, we may be truly wise to ever rejoice in His consolation through Christ our LORD. Amen.”
Many would agree that trusting in the Holy Spirit may seem like the only option because of the adversity people put up as Jesus described here in Matthew because of the Name of God’s Only Son. In our hearts we wonder why when the Truth of God’s love gives us strength to guide, lead and teach us His Way of Salvation. All I know is when I found Him, my life became His life to live in faith, charity and love. A church here in Georgia has on their sign what I’ve tried to love ever since. “I wanted my story to be His story.”
I have faith God will guide me to embrace His Word even if I don’t understand it. I actively seek to be led by the Spirit in charitable states of being to spread the Good News of Redemption. I have love for mankind and treat and teach people as I want to be treated. Last night at a family dinner, a distant cousin who is nine was asked to say the prayer before eating. With confidence she gave a prayer led by the Holy Spirit that would turn anyone’s frown into a smile. She let the Holy Spirit be her guide. I pray we can call upon His Holy presence in every step we take for the Glory of God the Father. Amen.
By God, His Son and His Spirit we pray to always call upon the Spirit of Truth to guide our every desire. We pray for every child and parent to find Christ’s joy. We pray for each other- our families and friends. We pray for our leaders and police officers. We pray for Prayer Point. We pray for safe travels home. We pray for Tim. We pray for LIFE FM. We pray for the Spirit to accept, bravery in God to change and intelligence of Christ’s Truth to know. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed“
Taught by a Dove Enveloping You
When you seem to be overwhelmed
Your head is spinning and life is hell
Call upon the Spirit to guide your life
Seek His Name to live the Christ fight
Smell His Truth in air so clean
Live His Truth in His Word pristine
Fight for honor of His Way to see
He will lead you to fulfill His Eternal dream
Of sharing the Redemption His Blood did prove
How to live Eternally in the embrace of Truth
Evoke the Spirit of God for forever youth
Taught by a Dove Enveloping You
