I hope you enjoyed last Sunday’s Holy, Holy, Holy Praise and Worship post. I’m excited to see what God has planned for these Sunday posts!
Our lives are so filled with activity and work that even though we attend church on Sunday (those of us who can), do we allow ourselves to relax and rest in our corporate praise and worship? Or do thoughts of all the to-do’s on our lists keep us from fully worshiping and praising our Creator?
I’ve been listening to this song so much that it is always playing in my mind lately. Whether you are able to worship with your church congregation or are in the privacy of your home, allow the Holy Spirit to saturate your heart and mind while viewing this video.
Holy Spirit, You are welcome here
Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere
Your glory,God, is what our hearts long for
To be overcome by Your presence, Lord
The video below is a version of “Holy Spirit” sung by Francesca Battistelli with lyrics:

Beloved, as a follower of and believer in Jesus Christ, are you living a life filled with the Holy Spirit? And are you walking in the Spirit? This is an excellent explanation of what it means to be filled with and walk in the Spirit by my bloggy friend, Raymond Candy. Please spend some time perusing other wonderful posts on his blog, As Seen Through the Eyes of Faith.
“And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;” (Eph. 5:18)
“If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” (Gal. 5:25)
Since the beginning of the early Christian Church there have been many different doctrines and beliefs as to what it means to “walk in the Spirit”.
The same holds true today.
Satan does not want you to discover how to walk in the Spirit.
At the very most he would like to see you fall in your Christian walk, give up, and turn from the faith.
At the very least he would like to see you continuously stumble and falter so that your faith would be weak and ineffectual.
Before we establish our belief as to what it is to “walk in the Spirit”, let us see what it is not.

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives:
love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, and self-control.
There is no law against these things!
—Galatians 5:22-23, NLT

I pray that God, the source of hope,
will fill you completely with joy and peace
because you trust in him.
Then you will overflow with confident hope
through the power of the Holy Spirit.
