“Holy Spirit, Open My Mind…”
The same Spirit that blew across the waters at the beginning of it all, is the same Spirit that visited the friends and followers of Christ.
Jesus said, “I will never leave you, nor forsake you!” But, what happens, when a different type of life wind blows through the door; the circumstances beyond our control? What about the wind that knocks us off our feet; the day the umbrella breaks and the wind and rain are relentless? Where do we go from here?
“Sometimes it is not the difficulty of life, but the drudgery of it that makes me think God will forsake me.” Do I hear God’s assurance in times when the whirlwinds of life blow?
“The faith of many people begins to falter when apprehensions enter their thinking and they forget the meaning of God’s assurance; they forget to take a deep spiritual breath.”**
Is God preparing or equipping us for some exceptional thing or work in the future? No. It’s about being, right now; in the moment.
We get up, close the umbrella and look to the Shekinah Spirit to offer a gentle breeze of comfort, as we enter into a new level of understanding.
“…Illuminate My Heart!”*
