“And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord” Ephesians 5:18-19, NKJV.
After we have received the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, God tells us to let Him continually fill us. The Greek translates be filled as in “be being continually filled by the Spirit”.
Being filled with the Holy Spirit is like a
cell phone. You have a cell phone, but you must daily fill it with power so that you can use it wherever you go. Without that charge, you will have a phone with all the calling ability and apps access that you need, but you won’t be able to use it. The Holy Spirit gives us power. The Holy Spirit empowers us to love and live victorious where ever we go. The fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) will help you reign over whatever you find yourself facing.
I challenge you to be filled with the Spirit today. Spend time before God and He will stir you up and charge you up. You have everything you need in the Holy Ghost to live strong and live led by Him, guided by Him. By the Holy Spirit, live victorious today!
Prayer: Father, You are good and have been good to me. Help me to spend quality time with You to begin my day and allow Your Spirit to continually fill me. Charge me up! Even if I have to step outside of my comfort zone, I’m going to sing and declare Your word over my life today. By Your Spirit, today will be a victorious day. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
