Already You are giving me, O Holy Spirit, an UNDERSTANDING of how I must spend this moment thinking about You in my heart. You are beginning to let me UNDERSTAND that simply by reading this information will not release Your grace. I am beginning to realize Your gift of UNDERSTANDING comes to me from You, when I take the time to accept Your COUNSEL. For this realization and the gifts You have given me, thank You, O Holy Spirit.
Please do not lead me into temptation, O Holy Spirit! Do not put me to the test that I must prove to You my faith, by making me wait longer to experience Your presence, if for only one second. This second of knowing that You are in my heart will increase my faith. O Holy Spirit, I do believe, help my unbelief.
Make me UNDERSTAND the only reason I am starting this third day of getting to know You is through and with the FORTITUDE You have provided.
If I listen to my pride, I would think I am doing it all by myself.
