Do you ever feel completely dirty…like a pig that wallowed in the mud?
You know, when we shower, we are able to wash the outside of our body, and even some products can help cleanse and detox the body. But you know, when it comes to the soul, the character, the mind, only the Spirit of God can clean them.
When the Holy Spirit comes upon you, He makes you to become a new person. As the scripture says:
“for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.” Romans 14:17
When you receive the Holy Spirit these three things happen to you.
- Righteousness- meaning you start to live your life in the right way.
- Peace- this is the first sign that you have Him, true peace.
- Joy- you are happy inside. Nothing takes this joy away.
What makes you feel dirty, is the life that you have been living, the bad decisions you have made, the sins or mistakes of your past or present. But when the Holy Spirit comes, He cleans you of all of your dirtiness.
But for Him to come, depends on your surrender. He can not enter into someone that is still holding onto the dirty life. You have to let go of the filth and seek to be made clean and new. Thats why we are doing the Fast of Daniel. This is your chance to be made new… to be made clean.
Surrender this world 100% during these 21 days, and the Holy Spirit will enter you and give you strength to never go back to the world after it’s done.
May the God of the Bible Bless You
