You’ve heard it before — maybe from your best friend, or your husband or wife. You are special. It’s true. You’ve got some talents and some skills, but that’s not what sets you apart from the rest of the world.

You have been inspired. You’ve been filled by the Holy Spirit. Take a moment to think about that.

God Himself lives in you. In John 1 we read about the Word becoming flesh. In The Message it says that, The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood.” The same sort of thing happened when you were filled with the Holy Spirit – He moved right on in.

He is with you when you get up in the morning, before you’ve had your coffee. He’s there in the car for your commute. He sees the way you treat your kids and the choices you make at the grocery store. And the thing is, this is GREAT news.

You don’t have to try and make the Christian life work on your own. All you have to do is learn to lean into the Holy Spirit. Practice spiritual breathing. Keep short accounts with God. Remember, you are never alone. You are INSPIRED.
