Not with timidity – Verse of the day – Day 50
Dear father, yesterdays verse of the day talked about your power and how we can receive it. In today’s verse you ask us to not receive power from you with timidity. Let me love others with a bold power and maintain an attitude of gratefulness and self-control.
I ask you to help keep my attitude and countenance lined up with the word of God so that I will not appear as a hypocrite. Sin is always crouching at the door and it is easy to fall to the lower sin nature if I do not have your armor on. I pray today as I move into another day given to me by your grace that I shall not fall to sin and use your power with boldness to love others as you loved us with an unending and unfailing love.
David W. Aucoin

O Holy Spirit, descend plentifully into my heart. Enlighten the dark corners of this neglected dwelling and scatter there Thy cheerful beams.
