Judges 6...the Lord took possession of Gideon. Holy Spirit, take possession of me for Your noble and divine purpose. May I serve You faithfully and completely.
Judges 14 ... But Samson told his father, “Get her for me! She looks good to me.” Holy Spirit, help me to see, not just look. Change the way I see that I may have Your vision and not just the temporal and fleeting glance of this life.
... His father and mother didn’t realize the Lord was at work in this, creating an opportunity to work ... Help me to always have this perspective, that You are always at work, every situation is an opportunity for You to accomplish Your perfect will. May I not be chagrined when things are not pleasing nor comfortable to me. Lift up my eyes, my sight, let my gaze rest on You and not the linear events of life. Let me consider Your ways above mine. Please.
I praise You, Holy Spirit, that among the evidence of Your presence in a girl's life is self-control. I pray that as You are increasingly welcomed in my life (You gain greater freedom in me and through that, I live in greater freedom for God - praise You!), that I grow in this particular fruit that I may not respond so violently nor harshly as Samson. May grace always bathe any exercise of Your power with which You entrust to me. May I praise You throughout.
