Happy Monday! May God’s blessings be poured out into your life and may His Holy Spirit fill you today and always.
“3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.“ Matthew 5:3 NLT
Living a life that is poor in spirit doesn’t mean that we walk around with our head down. Pour in spirit is recognizing our inability to please God. God has called us his own. Apart from God we can’t do anything that pleases him. We can try, we can convince others, but you can’t fool God.
There are many times in our lives that we feel that we can do things independently from God, but God wants to be with us always, in the big and small decisions in our lives. From the time we wake up until we fall asleep, the Lord calls us to depend on him.
As we allow the Holy Spirit to take control of our lives and bring us to a place of submission, allowing His spirit to lead and guide us in the way we should go, we will find ourselves more attuned with the Spirit and consciously depending on God.

Father God, thank you for today. Lord, thank you for being greater than any decision we must make today. Lord, thank you for being God over all things. Lord, touch our hearts so that we may release all the things that are keeping us from depending on you. Lord, reveal to us the areas that are prideful and keep us bound from receiving the fullness of your grace and mercy. Lord, teach us how to trust you and surrender ourselves to you in every area of our lives. Lord, we want the kingdom of heaven, so teach us to be poor in spirit so that we can be filled and led by your Holy Spirit. In Jesus name, amen.
Keep seeking! Keep trusting! Keep praying!
