Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”
What do people see when they look at me? That’s the real practical application of this passage. Lord, I want people to see a woman who is loving toward people; not anxious or nervous or worrying but peaceful. I want people to see a woman who is patient rather than hurried or distracted; kind rather than selfish; good rather than mean or spiteful; faithful rather than self-seeking. I want people to see a woman who is gentle, not harsh, cynical or sarcastic; self-controlled rather than self-indulgent, greedy, or impulsive. That’s the woman I want to be, Lord. Oh, Father, I need you so much! I can’t do this in my own strength.
Thank you for giving the Holy Spirit to live in me, so that I can be the woman You want me to be. What a faithful and glorious God You are!
