Verse – But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit. Jude 1:20 ESV
You can overcome the challenges of this world by being consumed with the power of the Holy Spirit. Challenges can seem insurmountable without the perspective of the Holy Spirit. That’s what causes many of us to quit when we are just about to overcome the challenge.
Keep your head up by bending your knees. Praying in the Holy Spirit is not rocket science. In some cases, praying in the Holy Spirit will be in a language you may not understand. (See I Corinthians 12:10, Acts 2:4). In many cases, praying the Holy Spirit simply aligns your thoughts with God’s thoughts concerning you and your situation.
Jesus told his disciples not to worry about the challenges they would face because he had overcome the world. Our faith is based upon Jesus conquering the grave. If you base your faith on someone or something else, I’m afraid you’ll be quite disappointed.
God doesn’t lead us into situations to leave us. He doesn’t bring us up only to let us down. He is at work within us and through us. Remember Jude’s words in the face of challenges and you’ll find that God is able to lead, and empower us when we place our faith in Him.
