What’s going on in your life today? Feeling down? Feeling drained? Needing a pick-me-up? Turn to God and invite the Holy Spirit into your situation! Ask Him for wisdom and discernment to help lead and guide you while also giving you the strength and courage to do what He is asking you to do.

A Pick-me-up doesn’t need to be bought, eaten, drank, etc

The Holy Spirit plays a significant role in the lives of Christians. Here are some ways the Holy Spirit provides a pick-me-up and transforms our lives:

  1. Renewing our minds: The Holy Spirit renews our minds to be more like Jesus Christ. By convicting us of sin and leading us to repentance, the Holy Spirit helps us grow spiritually 1.
  2. Empowering us: The Holy Spirit gives believers the power to live like Jesus and be bold witnesses for Him. This power reflects in both natural and supernatural ways, such as boldness in preaching the gospel and performing healing miracles 2.
  3. Guiding us: The Holy Spirit reveals God’s thoughts, teaches, and guides believers into all truth. He helps Christians in their weakness and intercedes for them 3.
  4. Transforming us: Through the power of the Holy Spirit, believers are saved, filled, sealed, and sanctified. The Holy Spirit helps shape us into godly people by convicting us through the Word of God 3.

He is our pick-me-up for life

Today’s Verse of the Day:

In the same way the Spirit [comes to us and] helps us in our weakness. We do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit Himself [knows our need and at the right time] intercedes on our behalf with sighs and groanings too deep for words.

Romans 8:26 AMP

Therefore, let’s be the dads who receive the Holy Spirit when we are feeling weak. Moreover, let’s lean in and ask the Holy Spirit to help when we don’t know what to pray or offer. Finally, let’s be the dads that who invite the Holy Spirit in to be our pick-me-up in those moments of uncertainty and unknowns.

How can we apply today’s verse of the day? What are you facing as a dad that you don’t know what to pray about or to offer to God? What is it that can help you be the dad that your wife, kids, and world need you to be that we can lean in on the Holy Spirit and allow Him to intercede and provide us with the wisdom and discernment and answers we need?

Applications of Romans 8:26 towards being the dads our wives, kids, and world need in accordance with God’s will, purposes, and plans through His Holy Spirit:

  • Prayer for Wisdom: When you’re facing decisions or challenges as a dad and don’t know what to do, turn to the Holy Spirit in prayer. Ask for wisdom and discernment to make choices that align with God’s plan for your family.

  • Being a Role Model: Ask the Holy Spirit to help you model the character and values you want your children to emulate. Let His transformational work in you inspire your family.
  • Intercession for Family: Just as the Spirit intercedes for us, intercede on behalf of your family. Pray for their well-being, spiritual growth, and protection.
  • Conflict Resolution: When conflicts arise within your family, rely on the Holy Spirit to guide you in resolving them peacefully and with reconciliation in mind.
  • Teaching God’s Truth: In your role as a dad, teach your children about God’s Word and His truth. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you effectively communicate spiritual principles.
