If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? Luke 11:13
Given that we're living in a world that's becoming increasingly intolerant of those who claim Christ as their Lord and Savior, it's essential that we solidify and fortify our relationship with the Father. We can not forget that we're in a spiritual war and we must be equipped spiritually in order to wage war on the powers of darkness with effectiveness. For we do not war against flesh and blood, but the spiritual kingdom of darkness.
One element that is absolutely a necessity in your walk with God is that you must be filled with His Spirit, meaning you must allow the mind and breath of God to come into your body/temple and take up residence. You are the temple of God and He wants to take up residence in your body and soul. This is why it's essential that we do our best to not participate in sin and give ourselves over to the lust and desires of the flesh. We must walk in purity. When you accept Christ into your life, you are transferred from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light and can no longer do the things that you use to do. You can't go to the places you use to go. The Holy Spirit is what enables you to overcome your old patterns of living and old ways of being, thus, allowing you to lead lives that's pleasing to the Father. It gives you the power to lead lives unblemished by the world. In addition, it gives you authority to put the devil and his evil workers of lawlessness into their proper place--behind you! It gives you the power to resist the enemy and tell him to get behind you. When Satan says, "Hey, I got two Beyonces and a Miley Cyrus waiting for ya!" You can reply with a no thanks and keep moving. Or ladies, vice versa! Satan may say, "How about I hook you up with my man Brad Pitt, or _________?!" You can reply with "I'm a daughter of the Most High, I don't do those things!"
Friends, we must do our best to remain free, without spot, or blemish in a world that seeks to defile, dirty up, and get you turnt up and turnt out on all levels. Off the chain, off the hook, and off the cliff the devil wants you to go! So, ask the Father to come into your life and fill you up with His Spirit of love that empowers you to live a life that's pleasing to Him. May the grace of Jesus be with you always!
