Five Reasons Why I Pray in the Spirit (#3 It Keeps Me in the Love of God)featured


Jude 1:20-21 NKJV “But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.”

Praying in the Holy Spirit keeps me in the love of God.  

I long to spend my days abiding in His love.

I know that I am always IN him, in spite of what I do.  I know that I’m always in His love, because of what Jesus did on the cross.  But sometimes, I don’t feel it.  I want to feel it, and I know that Jesus wants me to feel it, too.

One way that I can feel His love and abide there is by praying in the Spirit.  When I pray in tongues for an extended time, I feel the presence of God.  God is love!  I always feel His love around me, in me, coursing through me when I’m feeling His presence.

His love is always accessible!

My days are always more enjoyable when I’m feeling His love.  And I do a better job at mothering.

He didn’t mean for me to walk this road of motherhood alone.  He gives me His Holy Spirit, and I know His Love is always accessible.  There is always a never-ending well of living water for me to draw from.  His love is always flowing, and it never runs dry.
