Day 48: John 14:15 – 17

For a while now I have been complaining that I don’t have enough time to do what I feel God wants me to do.  I’ve been asking why God would put something on my heart that I really don’t have time for.  This question has caused me to examine my use of time.  Do I waste time?  How can I use my time more wisely?  How best can I prioritize the tasks at hand?  We have so many excuses for not obeying.   It is the Holy Spirit that convicts us of disobedience.  The Holy Spirit lives in us and helps us to live as God wants.  The Holy Spirit reminds us of Jesus’ word so that we can keep his commands.

Question: What does the gift of the Holy Spirit mean in your life?


Dear God, thank you for the Spirit of truth living in me.

Help me to rely on your spirit as I follow you.
