A Daily Devotion for Friday, April 16
1John: 5: 18-21
verse 20a: We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true.
Sometimes I lose track of the gift of the Holy Spirit. I don’t mean losing the Holy Spirit itself, I mean forgetting I have that power. And so there are times I forget to call on that power. I need the Holy Spirit to show the way, to give me understanding. No amount of study on my part will bear fruit unless God grants me the understanding and opens my eyes.
Holy One, your gifts are priceless. I cannot do this life on my own. Thank you for sending Jesus, so that I could have forgiveness and know God in man, and thank you for sending your Holy Spirit to live in me and guide me and bring me closer to you. Amen
