Praise You, God Almighty! You are amazing! This morning I watched a video that went into a process of slow motion and speeding it up. One incredible part showed a dragonfly which amazingly enough has 4 wings that can go in individual directions allowing the dragonfly to go forwards, backwards, sideways and hover. You designed that Lord! How great You are! We get just glimpses of Your creative genius. This is just one little thing, yet to me it symbolizes the vastness of who You are. We are only beginning to figure out the earth and all the intricacies of life You created here.
Microcosms of things too small for the naked eye to detect are everywhere. Their complicated complexity is fascinating to see under a microscope. Lord You are too wonderful for my tiny thoughts to express the magnitude of Your grandeur. So humbly I bow down to worship You and honor You!
John 14:25-26 (AMP)
25 I have told you these things while I am still with you.
26 But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance)
everything I have told you.
Holy Spirit, You are the Presence, Father God's gift, sent to live in me. I bow before You and submit my body and soul to You. I trust You to lead and guide me in all things that concern my life. An anointed author named Rees Howells says:
One caveat we must remember is what God told Rees: "But if I come in, I come as God, and you must go out.” Now that statement takes some meditation!
So once Holy Spirit, God Himself, comes in I must leave… my 'ego' must go away. Of course that also means that if God indwells me, nothing of the enemy can exist in my body, for it has become a Temple of God Himself. So does that mean disease of any kind must be eradicated? Good and evil cannot exist in the same place. (Here is another thought worth deep meditation!)
Holy Spirit You are an entity so massive in power, so surpassing in mastery and authority, that for You to exist in my body is overwhelming; yet, You do. Your all encompassing love makes the impossible possible. It’s like harnessing the electrical power in a lightening bolt~ it sizzles and sparks with an eager desire to escape its bounds. Give it an opening and it will strike out like a snake to enter and singe or even kill what ever is near. An even more powerful energy exists in You, thus we must prepare our selves to be the Temple by cleansing out any evil, any sin that is in our heart or soul. This is accomplished by repenting, that is choosing to change our ways, and to follow the ways of Jesus, and Holy Spirit You help us in this endeavor.
2015 is the year of the Holy Spirit. He will no longer be a stranger or some flimsy ghost like figure without substance that flits around in us. He will make Himself, the Third Person of the Holy Trinity, become real to us. It is His time. Wake up my friends and be prepared to become more deeply acquainted with the Holy Spirit!
Matthew 3:11 (NIV)
“I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry.
He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
