INNER PEACE

Is your life complicated?  Mine is - I say that a lot - "It's complicated!"

But ultimately I know it is not too complicated for my Jesus to bring all things together for good, for better outcomes, for growth in Him.

He has taught me that inner peace is gained through living a Holy Spirit filled life.  By allowing the Holy Spirit to guide me down the correct path, life will be more fulfilling.

How do I do this?  How do I know the Spirit is guiding?

We go to God's Word as our testing ground.  The Bible tells us that the evidence or "fruits" of a Spirit filled life are love,  joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

When you practise the first eight, the ninth (self-control) will come naturally.

The devil will be hard at your heels trying to keep you from being Spirit-filled, but ignore him.  He is nothing but a brute who seeks to destroy your joy and take from you all you will accomplish in the spirit.

Satan doesn't like losing any soul.  He fights back by sending many demons to replace the one you outed but fear not, God is with you and you will overcome by focusing only on Him.

Read His Word daily. Gain new insights from the Holy Bible.  Be encouraged knowing God cares for you and is working on your behalf.  Your circumstances may be complicated but God is working to uncomplicate them.  It may take a while depending on what you have got yourself into.

If you slip back, just repent to Him and go forward again.  He is with you!  You will see results!
