Galatians 5:22-23 NLT
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
There are some people you just love to see. They are bubbly and always positive. They turn every problem around into joy. They don't dwell on the circumstances but seem to always rise above them. I wish I could be like that all the time. I am sure you think the same.
The more we dwell on our circumstances the worse they seem to get. Worry and fear become part of the problem. The more we think about the issue the worse it gets and we find ourselves in a constant worry mode, fearing the worst.
As a believer in Jesus we have been given the Holy Spirit to live in us. He is our comforter if we let Him be so. Otherwise He just sits dormant waiting for us to acknowledge Him and seek His guidance as we walk through this earthly life.
It is one thing to know He is with us. It is another to seek His presence and guidance as we go through our day. As we look to Him we are filled with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. As we walk in them the joy of the Lord is expressed in our words, in our eyes, in our countenance. Others see Jesus in us.
Let's allow Holy Spirit to be our comforter, our teacher, today and for everyday forward. The change in us will be unimaginable.
