When I give my day to you, Lord, You run it. Peace reigns. My day flows like a river, smooth and steady. I am a leaf floating on top enjoying the swirls around rocks and the currents going wherever You choose to carry me. Yes, Holy Spirit, I choose to ride in Your currents be they water or air currents, or currents of spiritual force. I choose You. I trust You. Inside, deep inside, Your currents stream with Your potency and can make significant impact on the world through me. “Can make” if I allow, if I choose to submit all of me to You. It is choice, and Holy One, I so choose.
Holy Spirit You are all powerful, yet I trust Your love for me that the thrust of that strength will never harm me, but You will lead me to be who You created me to be. Right now there is a split path ahead; well it’s actually been there and I have straddled it for awhile, but I believe You are beginning to delineate the lines for me.
Your Word speaks of the 'narrow path' and it's not a split path, just one narrow path. My calling is to You. You are number one. So the question here is: does giving energy to the one path take away from my calling to You? Is there a temptation to lift it above You in importance?
Or can it be a minor way~ or am I being deluded? Where is the narrow path and does it exclude the other? I come to You Holy Spirit seeking truth. I don't want to leave the other path behind, but I absolutely want Your way only!
The Word speaks truth. Obedience to You, my God, is the path. Wisdom listens to Holy Spirit.
Matt 2:7-10 Then Herod sent for the wise men [astrologers] secretly, and accurately to the last point ascertained from them the time of the appearing of the star [that is, how long the star had made itself visible since its rising in the east].
8 Then he sent them to Bethlehem, saying, Go and search for the Child carefully and diligently, and when you have found Him, bring me word, that I too may come and worship Him.
9 When they had listened to the king, they went their way, and behold, the star which had been seen in the east in its rising went before them until it came and stood over the place where the young Child was.
10 When they saw the star, they were thrilled with ecstatic joy.
MSG: 9-10 Instructed by the king, they set off. Then the star appeared again, the same star they had seen in the eastern skies. It led them on until it hovered over the place of the child. They could hardly contain themselves: They were in the right place! They had arrived at the right time!
“They were at the right place and had arrived at the right time.”
“vs 6 for from you shall come a Ruler (Leader) Who will govern and shepherd My people Israel.” That’s You Jesus! You are my King and my Shepherd. The Place where I am at right now~ searching for truth~is the right time and truth is the right place. Holy Spirit shepherd me through this time. I’m feeling like a dumb sheep not knowing how to deal with this; I need a shepherd; I need You. Do not allow me to be deceived, Holy One. Show me truth.
Herod is the voice of lies and deception trying to prey on the devotion of the 3 kings. They were ecstatic with joy at finding You, Jesus. 2000 years ago, a child is born of a virgin, a God-child so full of life force that a mighty star in the heavens drew 3 wise men from the East to His humble crib. Then You Holy Spirit showed them Herod’s deception and they went their way without informing him of Your birthplace.They were ecstatic with joy to find You. So 2000 years later and I found You. Ecstatic with joy I worship You. Lead me in truth Jesus, my King and my Shepherd. Reveal deceptions to me. Help me see Your will; lead me in truth always.
