So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do.
Ephesians 5: 15-17 (NLT)
Today’s verse brings a whole new meaning to the phrase, “Think before you act.” Paul knew that our human nature, left unattended, can shipwreck our life. That is why he was careful to give us instruction on our thinking. He wrote that we need to be wise, not foolish in the decisions we make. He emphasizes the fact that we need to seek God’s will for our life and make every effort to understand what He wants us to do. Paul then sums all this up instructing us to be “filled with the Holy Spirit.” Filled with the Spirit means to be under the control or total influence of the Holy Spirit. It is a Christian mindset that totally directs our life. So today ask the Holy Spirit to fill you and live every moment for Him.
Father, fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Help me understand Your will for my life so I can make the most of every opportunity to live for you.
