My mind has just been wandering around on a journey to no particular destination. However I am still on the King's way and before Him, I bow low! He is my God Who rules this eternal kingdom. So wherever I go, He is with me. This I know because He said so:
1) Deuteronomy 31:6-8 (AMP)
6 Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble in dread before them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not fail you or abandon you.”
Walking along this kingdom road, Holy Spirit reminds me of Jesus words while He walked the earthly paths speaking to all who would hear. Those who were hungry for things of the Spirit, were drawn to Him.
Is it not the same today? I recall when I was ready to hear Him, Holy Spirit led m to meet a friend at a small restaurant where I waited for my friend (we arranged to meet between our 2 cities) As I sat a woman came along and asked if she could sit with me? I said yes. She spoke about the Bible and invited me to a Bible Study. That was the beginning of my deeper walk with God. Bless that lady for being obedient to You Father.
John 14:16-17 The Passion Translation
And I will ask the Father and he will give you another Savior, the Holy Spirit of Truth, who will be to you a friend just like Me—and He will never leave you. The world won’t receive him because they can’t see him or know him. But you will know him intimately, because he will make his home in you and will live inside you.
2) Now I know I have Holy Spirit living in me.
Indeed, Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Holy Trinity, indwells me as an intimate friend. So as my mind wanders along this trail, I submit it to Holy Spirit guidance, so it’s not just aimless wandering, I just don’t know the destination yet.
My eyes behold a movement~ a breeze has disturbed the towel hanging, a blossom is swaying, an invisible softness is caressing my cheek. My mind identifies the Spirit’s breath of love reminding me that my God holds me as His precious child. Love is guiding my mind now.
God’s love is powerful, and is a weapon against evil. An evil germ has attacked my throat and sinuses. I reach out and grab the Words that fight evil. They are God’s Words about Jesus passage here and its ultimate purpose ~ it was all for us. God loves us so much, He wants us to know Him and have a deep personal relationship with Him. His greatest gift to us was His Son Jesus; for He took upon Himself to pay all our sin debt. And we, upon accepting this marvelous present from Him, become cleansed from all our sin ~ it is gone from us and we are born anew, pure and free from the clutches of sin. We belong to God’s family now with His DNA.
The other part of this gift is the effects of sin can be erased as well. In the garden Adam and Eve were created free from any disease. Being reborn means we have a renewed body ~ like Adam’s. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and King, God’s Son, we have bodies that can accept the healing grace of God’s Word. He is not a man that He should lie:
Numbers 23:19 New King JV“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
By Jesus tortured body, death and resurrection, we were healed, and that healing grace flows down through the ages covering us.
3) We live in divine health
1 Peter 2:24 The Passion Translation (TPT)
24 He himself carried our sins [a] in his body on the cross [b] so that we would be dead to sin [c] and live for righteousness. Our instant healing flowed from his wounding. [d]
Footnotes: 1 Peter 2:24 This healing includes the body, soul, and emotions. It was fulfilled in two ways: first, by the healing ministry of Jesus, and second, by the blood of Christ’s wounds. See Matt. 8:16-17; Isa. 53:5.
Isaiah 53:5 But HE was wounded for our transgressions, HE was crushed for our wickedness [our sin, our injustice, our wrong doing]; The punishment [required] for our well-being fell on HIM, And by His stripes (wounds) we are healed.
Wow! My mind wandering has hit the jack pot! This cruise through time has netted me a powerful truth! I have God Himself abiding in me ~ an eternal divine friend to lead me on my life trip. He brings me to Truth and salvation, healing and joy. I follow His ways, and my destination will be an everlasting home with Him. I like this mind wandering! I’ll have to try it again! Next time I invite you to come along with me.
