  • Day by Day
    • Jesus
      • Luke 9:23—"Then he said to them all, ‘Whoever wants to be My disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow Me.’"
      • Luke 11:13—"‘If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him [GK—continually]!’"
      • John 7:38-39—"Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within them.’ By this He meant the Spirit."
    • Paul
      • 2 Corinthians 4:16—"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day."
      • Christian Wiman—"Seven years ago I wrote a short essay called ‘Love Bade Me Welcome.’ It was published (with a different title) in a relatively small magazine, and it generated what was, in my experience, a lot of responses. It was later, though, on the internet, in anthologies, in church services and reading groups, that the essay acquired its second life, and I still get the occasional letter from someone who has come across it. . . . And the essay itself? It was about despair: losing the ability to write, falling in love, receiving a diagnosis of an incurable cancer, having my heart ripped apart by what, slowly and in spite of all my modern secular instincts, I learned to call God." (My Bright Abyss: Meditation of a Modern Believer vii)
      • Ephesians 5:18—". . . be filled [continually/day by day] with the Spirit."
      • Galatians 5:16—". . . walk by the Spirit [continually/day by day]."
    • Ellen White
      • Desire of Ages 313: "We are to follow Christ day by day. God does not bestow help for tomorrow."
      • Steps to Christ 70: "Consecrate yourself to God in the morning; make this your very first work. Let your prayer be, ‘Take me, O Lord, as wholly Thine. I lay all my plans at Thy feet. Use me today in Thy service. Abide with me, and let all my work be wrought in Thee.’ This is a daily matter."
      • Christ Triumphant 122: "To follow Jesus requires wholehearted conversion at the start, and a repetition of this conversion every day."
      • Acts of the Apostles 50: "For the daily baptism of the Spirit every [follower of Jesus] should offer his petition to God."
      • Ye Shall Receive Power 67: "Those who have been impressed by the Holy Scriptures as the voice of God, and desire to follow its teachings, are to be daily learning, daily receiving spiritual fervor and power, which have been provided for every true believer in the gift of the Holy Spirit."
  • Faith Not Feeling
    • 1 John 5:14-15—"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we ask of Him."
      • Helmut Haubeil—"What does [1 John 5:14-15] mean? Our prayers according to God’s will are answered in the same moment that we bring them to God. But emotionally we usually don’t notice anything. Our prayers are answered by faith, not by our feelings. The feelings will come later on." (Steps to Personal Revival: Being Filled with the Holy Spirit 88)
      • Dominique Gummelt—"Feelings follow behavior—the key to living."
    • Two conditions to the daily baptism of the Holy Spirit: You ask for all of Him; and He asks for all of you.
    • Romans 5:5—". . . God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us."
    • Christian Wiman—"When my wife and I fell in love eight years ago, both of us—spontaneously, though we’d been away from any sort of organized religion for years—began praying together. The prayers were at once formal and improvisational, clear spirited but tentative, absolute but open ended. They were also . . . deeply serious and, as my illness made clear when it came slashing through our lives, sustaining. . . . I don’t think the human love preceded the divine love, exactly . . . . I only know that I did not know what love was until I encountered one that kept opening and opening and opening. And until I acknowledged that what that love was opening onto, and into, was God." (22-23)
