“And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father;” (Ephesians 5:18–20, NASB95)
When you are truly filled with My Spirit, you do not need other spirits to give you a lift. I am concerned about those who claim that their bodies are the temples of My Holy Spirit – yet they express their insecurity by dependencies on alcoholic spirits, nicotinic spirits and gluttonous spirits. When a heart is filled with gratitude for the wonders of My Forgiveness and Love, there is no craving for these material escape mechanisms. Fill your minds, My children, with Scriptures and hymns so that your life will be lived each day against the background music of praise and thanksgiving.
