“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!””
Luke 11:13 NIV
Today is an interesting day for many believers, do we celebrate or not? Well ultimately that is your decision, either way if fueled by the right intent both choices are correct. The arguments are always the roots of any given celebration, however if the roots are no longer the roots of that tree (the intent). Then it isn't the same tree. That said if you feel compelled - don't celebrate. However, consider this, what is it that you are doing, are you planning on indulging the flesh... Then okay dressed up or not, that would not be a good idea. Nor, would it honor God. Are you going to have some family fun time, enjoy the children, being peace-loving and nurturing parents. Well make sure you point out that some people like to make this an evil event, but we recognize the power of God, and evil has NO power over us. Therefore, we are choosing to celebrate life, love and family fun. Just remember on days like this, it is even more important to guard your testimony for Him. Don't do anything that would diminish that!!
If you are feeling confused, choose to NOT be. Think on this... There are two functions of the Holy Spirit. One is for the indwelling of the believer (that chooses Him), and the other is for the outpouring to help others (this is your testimony). Indwelling of the Holy Spirit is for our benefit as individuals. The Holy Spirit dwells in us to do something for us: to make us become what God intended us to be. Once we are established in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, our fullness causes an overflow, the outpouring, this is what reaches out to others. Creates curiosity, creates opportunity
It's to witness, share, uplift and build up others! The outpouring of the Holy Spirit is for the benefit of others, to bring them into the fullness of action of the Holy Spirit. I say these words for specific purpose of tapping into what you have available to you... Not just on these interesting days on the calendar, but for every day. Oh and remember, limit your intake of that luscious refined white sugar. Very interesting fact a friend shared w me, I looked it up, and it is true OMG, "there is only one molecule difference between white refined sugar and cochane". So maybe start tomorrow getting that out of your system. Smiles. Thank You Lord for your guidance, and supernatural wisdom. Thank you Lord for giving me the opportunity to enfluencers enfluencers!! Thank You for giving all of us opportunities to enfluance the world and share His Word!!!
“Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.” John 20:21-23 NIV
