It is tempting to relax after a spiritual victory, but a crisis could follow at any time. You must stand guard over your high points. It is at these times when you experience God mightily that you should immediately get alone to pray.
It is possible to be too gentle with your friends. When a friend is under deep conviction by the Holy Spirit, do you try to give comfort? You are not acting in true friendship if you condone disobedience or even if you look the other way.
If, however, your eyes are fixed on holy God, you will become more like Him- gracious, forgiving, long-suffering, and righteous. Then you will have the strength, wisdom, and patience you need to help others in the way God desires.
If success is what is important to you, you may be tempted to choose accomplishments over your relationship with God. Would you be satisfied to have success, power, and wealth, but not a relationship with Him?
Whenever you meet another Christian, you come face to face with Christ. There ought to be a deep respect within you as you encounter other lives guided by the Holy Spirit. Do not live as if you have no responsibility toward your Christian brothers or sisters.
We must learn to view events around us from God’s perspective. Then we will see our world very differently. We ought to live each day with tremendous anticipation as we look to see where God is working around us.
