Isaiah 46:3-4, 9:10 TLB Listen to me, all Israel who are left; I have created you and cared for you since you were born. I will be your God through all your lifetime, yes, even when your hair is white with age. I made you and I will care for you. I will carry you along and be your Savior. And don’t forget the many times I clearly told you what was going to happen in the future. For I am God—I only—and there is no other like me who can tell you what is going to happen. All I say will come to pass, for I do whatever I wish.
1 Samuel 10:6-7 TLB “At that time the Spirit of the Lord will come mightily upon you and you will prophesy with them, and you will feel and act like a different person. From that time on your decisions should be based on whatever seems best under the circumstances, for the Lord will guide you.
Lord Jesus, You teach us how to rely upon, depend upon, and lean upon You through the Holy Spirit of God. You have filled us with Your Spirit. You lead and guide us in Your strength so we do not rely upon our own strength anymore. You have created us into a new people, and we should be grateful to You for this. The Holy Spirit influences us as He gives us His power to do what God asks us to do, which produces other fruits of the Spirit’s work in us. Let us abide in Your Word by coming into Your presence and including You in our everyday life then. You will change us into Your glory and into Your image in Christ name I pray. Amen
