When was the last time you asked God for a fruit of the Spirit to be present in your life?
So many times we think them automatic and not something to be pursued.
I am a child of my Father, but my Father’s character
dominant and growing has some pursuit to it.
Have you ever asked God for self control, gentleness, meekness….
Oh my goodness, I don’t think I have ever asked for meekness.
That is why God wouldn’t let me inherit the earth… that’s for the meek, which I totally need.
I am not even sure if I know what meekness is.
Just with that in mind, I wonder how many THINGS I’ve prayed for are delayed because the
THING WITHOUT THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT can prove to be my demise.
God is so smart as never to give me my request without
the fruit being present to manage the answer to my prayer.
I really believe we need the fruit to acquire the request.
Just me thinking out loud.
