For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Ephesians 5:8
Our times are in His hands; He will avenge His elect speedily; He will make haste for our help, and not delay one hour too long. -Andrew Murray
To walk in the Spirit is to obey the initial promptings of the Spirit. You cannot interpret the Word of God properly, you cannot live a godly life, and you cannot serve the Lord adequately apart from the power of the Holy Spirit working in you. Every morning, you wake up to three enemies- the world, the flesh, and the devil. How do you handle these enemies? You must be filled with the Holy Spirit- listening to and walking with Him moment by moment. -Life Principle 22, Walking With God
Did you ever notice how everything is more difficult in the dark? That same set of stairs that you negotiate with no problem during the day can cause you to stumble in the dark. God’s path is always illuminated and one step at a time we get where we need to go safely.
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? Matthew 6:25
