Life drains. Stuff happens. Often we are faced with difficult and challenging situations. Because our God is Trinity it is possible to maintain some sort of spiritual equilibrium in the midst of life’s turmoils.
To be filled with the Spirit is to be controlled by the Spirit.
It is crucial to a successfully-lived Christian Life. Unlike the indwelling of the Spirit – filling is a repeated experience. it entails CONFESSION of sin, YIELDING to God.
Is your earthly vessel leaking?
Something to think about. Not a format – not a ritual but a truth in my personal life. Prior to an operation during actual crisis situations for me it was and is about ‘connection’.
Think about this ………To face this day. To face this week. To face issues which will arise.
Look to heaven. Confess sins and inadequacies. Physically open up your hands to Him. Pray the 23rd Psalm – I will follow YOU…………. ‘Anoint my head with oil.’ (In an old Testament concept this was anointing in a physical sense.). The Great Shepherd LIVES today. In faith and with humility let HIM pour the Oil of His Spirit afresh on your life today and every day.
Then Go forth and LIVE life for HIM and for others.
Ponder. Reflect. Our God is an AWESOME GOD.
