But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
God promises the fruit of the Holy Spirit to those who live in obedience and submission to Him.
Who Couldn’t Use a Little More…
As you read through this promise, there is no doubt we could all use a little more peace, patience, joy, and love. Who doesn’t want more kindness and self-control?
As you live filled and empowered by the Holy Spirit, God promises these qualities will become evident in your life. They are the natural result of a life controlled by the Holy Spirit.
Through discipline and diligence, you may be able to add some of these qualities to your life, but it’s tough to work on being more joyful.
How many times have you commented, “I need to be more patient,” or “I need to worry less.” Have you ever become impatient with your lack of progress in becoming more patient? I know I have.
Fruit Grow Naturally
The good news is that these qualities naturally flow from a life filled with the Holy Spirit. As you walk in the power of the Holy Spirit, love, joy, peace, and all the other fruit become more and more evident in your life.
When these fruit are not evident, they indicate that you may not be walking in the Spirit. The Fruit of the Spirit can become a gauge of your walk with God.
Are you Struggling with peace? Maybe that area hasn’t been turned over to the Lord.
Are you impatient with the world around you? It might be a good time to check your submission to the Lord.
Have you lost your love and concern for others? Maybe you need to step back and ask the Holy Spirit to fill you.
God wants each of these spiritual fruit to be growing in your life. As you allow the Holy Spirit to fill you and walk in submission to Him, you have the promise that the fruit of the Spirit will grow in your life.
Look at that promise one more time.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. – Galatians 5:22-23 (ESV)
Make these confessions.
In Jesus’ Name, the fruit of the Spirit are growing in my life.
As I walk filled with the Holy Spirit, these fruit become evident in my life.
When the fruit of the spirit are not evident, they remind me to check my walk with God.
I chose to walk in the Spirit and allow God to grow the fruit of the Spirit in my life.
In Jesus’ name,
Today, as you walk filled with the Holy Spirit, the fruit of the Spirit are growing in your life.
