Every day we need it because this is so not a perfect life. After the day we just had in our country, how can we think we’ll ever NOT need it? After the year we had and all the things…we need it every day.
I was reading New Morning Mercies by Paul David Tripp this morning, like I do every morning, and I was struck with the truth of this statement at the top of the page; “Every day you need it. You and I simply can’t live without it. What is it? The indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit”.
We can’t do life on our own. We need each other, now more than ever. Our country has gone insane. We need the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit every single minute of every single day. Romans 8:13 states: For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if you live by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.”
It’s not enough for us to believe. It’s important, but the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit is how the inside of us changes. God in us. He is our only Hope.
