The Spirit of God

Scripture reading

Because you are children, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, Abba, Father.

–Galatians 4:6

Thought of the Day

Last week I had the amazing experience of visiting a friend of mine in Juarez, Mexico. Frank helps run a rehab home for drug addicts. He is a recovering heroin addict himself and has been sober for over twelve years. Frank credits his recovery totally with God. Frank told God that if He would remove the hunger that he had for drugs, that he would hunger for God the rest of his life. Frank’s story is a powerful witness. As I stood in the upstairs meeting room at the home that night, I saw and heard the men singing and praying and praising God. I could not understand the words but it was still most special being there.
I later asked Frank the words of the song. Here they are.

The Spirit of God is among us. He will touch our hearts.
The Spirit of God is among us. He will touch our hearts.

The men in the rehab home sang these words over and over to a God who listens. They understood these words of faith. They knew that God was with them. They knew that God was touching their hearts. Make their words your words today.

Prayer

Lord, continue to watch over Frank and his ministry in Juarez. Watch over me, too. Amen.
