I READ: Ezekiel 36:26-27; Proverbs 27:19

A person’s heart can be influenced by his or her environment.  If they live surrounded by people who are never satisfied, rebellious, and always talk behind someone else’s back, they will eventually become the same like the environment they live in.  As believers, the Holy Spirit lives within us.  He will give us a new heart every day so that we become more obedient to the Lord.  Acts 1:8 says that if the Holy Spirit falls upon us, we will receive His power.  The renewal of the Holy Spirit within us each and every day will make our lives not to be easily influenced by the surrounding environment, but instead we are the ones who will bring positive impacts to others.

I DECLAREActs 1:8 – But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.

 I DO: What actions am I going to take after meditating on the Word of God?

 I PRAY: Pray as guided by the Holy Spirit
