August 30 – Pure Spiritual Power
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”
So many believers think of the fruit of the Spirit as little more than a passive list of pleasant qualities that can help improve their personalities. But they’re far greater than that! They’re pure spiritual power.
Love is so powerful, the scripture says, that it never fails. Patience is so powerful it cannot be stopped. No matter what the circumstances, it will not quit. Temperance is so powerful it can master all the unruly desires of your flesh.
The fruits of the Spirit are not weak; they’re strong. So strong all the demons of hell can’t stop them. So strong that if you’ll let them flow out of you, they’ll correct the problems in your life. They’ll keep you steadfast when all the people around you are falling down. They’ll keep you on your feet when governments fail and when the storms of life come.
We are living in dangerous days. There’s only one way you can make it through in victory. You must begin to release those powerful fruits of the Spirit God has placed inside you. Believe me, if you’re born again, they are there. Learn to yield to them and as 2 Peter 1:10 promised, you shall never fall!
