Devotional  7/17/20 
 “Walking In Holiness”
by Dona Hake
I would like for us to meditate today on a portion of scripture within Romans 12:12-2 TPT
“…And live in holiness, experiencing
all that delights his heart…”
The transformed heart embraces a passionate desire to live in holiness and desires to delight the heart of God. The man that falls into being pulled and tugged by the voices and influences of this world will constantly deal with a battle that causes instability,weakness, and guilt as he tries to walk before the Lord.
The secret to the flourishing life of a transformed believer is to constantly keep our minds renewed to what God’s Word instructs us to do. Our feelings, our experiences or opinions can never be considered as we purpose to stand strong. We can not weaken , we can not stray in our convictions of the truth.
I was touched as I read this scripture in the Psalms. What a beautiful prayer from the heart of the psalmist! He was pleading with God for rescue from  deceitful and unjust men.  We too can stand strong in the presence of our enemies that are trying to pull us down. Our hearts can be lifted above the forces that may try  to discourage our hearts. Be encouraged as you read and pray this scripture.
“Pour into me the brightness of your daybreak! Pour into me your rays of revelation-truth! Let them comfort and gently lead me onto the shining path, showing the way into your burning presence, into your many sanctuaries of holiness. Then I will come closer to your very altar until I come before you, the God of my ecstatic joy! I will praise you with the harp that plays in my heart, to you, my God, my magnificent God!”
Psalm 43:3-4 – The Passion Translation
