When you didn’t know the Lord, His Spirit was already dealing with you. You may have said in your intellectual mind like I did, ‘What possible difference could accepting the Lord make in my life?’ Your mind wars against your spirit before AND after you get saved, but at least afterwards your spirit is alive unto God and can feed on the Word of God to uplift and sustain you.
But as you know now, accepting the Lord into your heart changes everything, all your wants and desires. Because He is at the guiding light of your life instead of alcohol, drugs and relationships.
Take a look at Galatians 5:16
“My counsel is this: Live freely, animated and motivated by God’s spirit. Then you won’t feed the compulsions of selfishness. These two ways of life are antithetical, so that you cannot live at times one way and at times another way according to how you feel on any given day. Why don’t you chose to be led by the Spirit and so escape the erratic compulsions of a law-dominated existence?”
Your life is propelled, moved and motivated by the Spirit of the living God, especially as you meditate on His Word. Let Him talk to you today.
