Today I will unleash, by inviting and accepting, the dynamite* of the Holy Spirit into my life: the power to resist temptation, to rise above tribulation, to re-make myself according to the teachings of Christ.

Genesis 39:10
But he left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house. (Joseph resists the temptation of Potiphar’s wife.)

Psalm 18:32
It is God who arms me with strength
and keeps my way secure.

Matthew 5:1-2
His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them. (Beatitudes)

Today I will go to God’s altar, armed with the power of the Holy Spirit.

* The Greek word dunamis in the Bible generally means “power, force, or ability.” Paul used the word in 2 Timothy 1:7 when he wrote “for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” This Greek word dunamis is where the English words “dynamite” and “dynamic” originate. Paul wanted Timothy to know that God had given him the dynamite ability to stand strong in the faith and the dynamic skill to share that faith with others. See link for more.
