Under The Influence

Today we finish a year of seeking to live for God under the influence of His Holy Spirit.

With so many pressures around us on this day and on this night, we could easily give our thoughts, behaviors, and words over to the destructive influence of alcohol or other substances.

Instead, let's remember our commitment to live "under the influence" of the Holy Spirit, asking Him to bring God glory in what we think, do, and say!

Ephesians 5:17-18 ... Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit.

Psalm 37:5 … Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

Proverbs 16:3 … Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.

Colossians 3:23-24 … And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. ❤
