Build Yourself Up by Praying in The Holy Spirit (Morning)
Jude 1:20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,
David the King, wrote 73 out of 150 chapters in Psalms. Two more are credited to him in the New Testament (Psalms 2 and 95) which make his work reaching half the entire Psalms. Many are his intimate conversation with GOD. Only those with intimate relationship could write so many “love letters.” He still wrote his letter even though the current circumstances were not in his favor. Psalms 142, was written when he was hiding in a cave. In the case of productivity, only Apostle Paul rivals King David. Fourteen books totaling 124 chapters. After his encounter with Jesus, his life had been changed dramatically. Because he fought for his faith and other early Christians’ lives, God provided him with blessings.
Based on that inspirational story: what have they been doing? What makes God loves them so much? Like what we mentioned earlier, it’s because they love God. Only a lovesick couple could write that many love letters. Because they love God above average and they had a close and intimate relationship with Holy Spirit, that’s why. King David improve his already steady level of relationship by praising the LORD. In Apostle Paul’s case, because as it is written in 1 Corinthians 14:18 I thank God that I speak in tongues more than all of you,
We can reach what King David and Apostle Paul did and even more than those figures. Right now, on this brand new day, commit to consistently improve your current relationship with God. To pray more, to praise and worship Him more, to reflect on His words more. More of them and wholeheartedly. If you could you can speak in tongue (glossolalia) like what Apostle Paul once did.
Build yourself up by PRAYING IN THE HOLY SPIRIT.
1. Have you built yourself up by praying in the Holy Spirit?
2. In your opinion, what would likely be happening if you ready to surrender your life and pray more intensive than before?
3. Tuliskan! What are your commitments to improve your life more and let His works be done?
“O Holy Spirit, we are truly aware of how beautiful our lives are when You are inside our hearts and lives. It’s our fault for not reciprocate Your feelings and love earlier. Right now we are ready to improve our lives and therefore be close with You, Father, and Savior. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
