Empowered by the Holy Spirit …

Jeremiah 18:1-20:18; 1 Thessalonians 1:1-2:16; Psalm 119:1-8

“The Lord is with me like a mighty warrior; so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail” (Jeremiah 20:11). This is a tremendous Word of encouragement when the battle is at its fiercest. In this battle, we are empowered by the Holy Spirit (1 Thessalonians 1:5), empowered to speak for the Lord and to live for Him. He gives us the strength to battle for the glory of God, “not trying to please men but God … not looking for praise from men” (1 Thessalonians 1:4,6). This is the way of blessing – the way of doing what God wants us to do – “blessed are they whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the Lord” (Psalm 119:1).
