I enjoyed “taking-in” the true patriotism of this July 4th holiday in celebration of our country! I find myself extremely absorbed with thanksgiving to God for the privilege to grow up in the United States of America. Don’t you? What a great and awesome country!!! Today was just one day in 365 where the history of this country continues to be written.

What is the most essential part to being a son of God? The Holy Spirit will lead you in the affairs of life. The Holy Spirit will always encourage you to see yourself righteous. I believe this is one of the most overlooked areas of the Spirit’s indwelling presence.

I heard about an actor who was playing Hamlet, but doing it very poorly. When the crowd booed his performance he said, “Don’t blame me. I didn’t write this stuff!” The problem was not the script—it was him. The script God has given to you is His Word.

Because faith allows us to tap into the unlimited power of God, we can truly do anything. As John said, faith is what allows us to overcome the world. (1 John 5:4) Victory over the enemy has already been won. There is no doubt as to the final outcome of the battle.

What we must do is to rely on God’s power. The impact in demonstrating the power of the Spirit is not just on your life; it spreads to those around you as well. When we see God work it reminds us of what He is able to do. His faith is your strength for every conflict. Bet your life on the unseen power of God.

It is easy to feel good about your faith when things are going your way. But your faith is put to the test when adversity comes, when there is a disease or a financial reversal or when problems arise in your family. That is not the time to give up on God and question why He has abandoned you. The truth is, He hasn’t.

Instead, refocus your attention on His love and His Word. Remind yourself of all the good things God has done for you in the past.
