Last night I received a prayer request. Someone I know well is needing to take a long drive today for their work and they will be accompanied with two other individuals, one of which who is struggling with some serious life choices. I have known of this person’s struggles for a while now and have been praying for them to see their choices through the Light of Jesus.
This morning’s devotional seemed to be written just for today’s journey. It said in part, “When we give our lives to the Lord, we join ourselves to him. We are made one in his Spirit, united in his mercy…. Our bodies are the sacred temple of the Spirit, as Paul goes on to say in I Corinthians 6:19. You don’t belong to yourself any longer, for the Holy Spirit lives inside of your sanctuary.”
Today I pray for this reality to be seen in such a way that making any choice to turn away from the Spirit’s purity would be cast aside for what it is–sin. All of us have needed to come to this reality at some point in our lives and for many we’ve had to come to this point several times in our lives. I pray this will be true today for an individual as this vehicle drives to its destination.
