""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 can be 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!! Additionally, remember if and or when you do, repent and move on.
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
“Let them praise the name of the Lord, for his name alone is exalted; his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.” Psalm 148:13 NIV
Today is the day the Lord has made, stand up and Rejoice, Stand and Praise Him!!! All you have has been given to you by Him, all you want and all you need has been provided by Him!! Thank You Lord, Hallelujah!!!!
All to often we get stuck in our own sorrows, our own pain, even our own errors and missed steps. It is time, time to rejoice that WE ARE RESCUED. HE HAS SAVED US, died for all of our sins past, present and future. There are no limits here, so it's okay to let go and forgive yourselves. Why are we carrying them around with us?? I am forgiving myself today, yes I have many things that just yesterday I weeped over, weeping to the Lord please forgive me, please give me a do over. I realized this morning in prayer we ALL have those do overs, we just need to take them. Like perfectly ripe grapes on a vine, waiting to be taken. Do you look at the grape and say, I'm not sure if it is real, I'm not sure if it will taste good... No way you know it's awesome, plop it in your mouth and smile with its sweetness. WOW it is just that simple, TYL PTL
Each of those grapes are your victories, sweet and perfect just waiting for you to Stand And Rejoice in HIS Perfect Plan, His Perfectly Planned Victories for YOU!!!
Let me say it like this, have faith, believe, KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE ASKED FOR IS ON ITS WAY!!! It's ALREADY DONE!!! Thank You Lord, Thank You Jehovah Jireh!!!
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:4-9 NIV
