Upwords; Max Lucado –The Work of the Spirit


Listen to Today’s Devotion

Suppose a person never learns about the sealing and intercession of the Spirit. This individual thinks that salvation security resides in self, not in God. That prayer power depends on the person, not the Spirit. What kind of life will this person lead? A parched and prayer-less one.


But what about the person who believes in the work of the Spirit? Suppose you let the Spirit saturate you with this assurance. After all, “we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!” (Romans 5:5). Your shoulders will lift as you release the buckling weight of self-salvation. Your knees will bend as you discover the buoyant power of praying in the Spirit. New beginnings, higher walk, deeper prayers. And, most of all, a quiet confidence that comes from knowing it’s not up to you.
