1 Samuel 2:9
He will guard the feet of his faithful servants, but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness. “It is not by strength that one prevails;
He said to me, “Son of man,[a] stand up on your feet and I will speak to you.” 2 As he spoke, the Spirit came into me and raised me to my feet, and I heard him speaking to me.
Many times we think we can achieve strength or attain righteousness on our own. The prophet Ezekiel was told to stand on his feet by God, but He could not stand until the Spirit came into him.
Is anything troubling you today? Take off your attention from your strength (Flesh) for nothing can take you out of that situation if not the Spirit of God. For this reason, dear friend Jesus came for we could never have overcome our sins without Jesus, there is no righteousness with Him.
Are you thinking of how to please God today? Have you tried all you can to please God but it is not just working? Allow the Spirit to come into you by listening to the word of God today.
The bible is God’s word given to us. God speaks through His word. Seat in a comfortable position today, relax, forget about your pains or many sins, read God’s word and try to listen to His voice through the bible.
I pray that as you learn to rest and study the word of God, the Spirit will enter into you and lift you up. Amen!
