Holy Spirit

Posted on May 22, 2020 at 1:55 AM

   

                        


Occasionally I peruse my blogs and journals from the past,  and this time I came across a great book that I had read and found excellent. It speaks of the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity ~ the Holy Spirit. There seemed to be some worthy points to share, especially now; we are living in a very unique season, and God has a plan for us during it. My personal belief is that this is a term of the Holy Spirit. To many He is a mystery and not understood with any depth. Thus my sharing  beginning this morning will go somewhat deep. [first let me tell you that the Holy Spirit was also once known as the Holy Ghost. Somewhere in my lifetime, it seemed inappropriate and so was changed to much more truth, The Holy Spirit.]


from Rees Howell's book, Intercessor by Norman Grubb / speaking of the Holy Spirit:

 . . . ”In His natue He was just like Jesus - He would never live for self, but always for others. We were people who had left all to follow the Savior, and had forsaken all we had of this world's goods to enter a life of faith, and as far as we knew we had surrendered our lives entirely to the One who died for us. But He showed us,

 


'There is all the difference in the world between your surrendered life in My hands, and Me living My life in your body.'

 

 

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice...' (Romans 12:1). It seemed as though we had never seen that Scripture before. He made it clear that He was not asking for service, but for a sacrifice. 'Our God is a consuming fire'; and if God the Holy Ghost took possession of these bodies, then His life was going to consume all that there was of ours.


I have come to the point in my life where my deepest desire is to be one with my Savior, and I thus could relate to this concept; not truly realizing with full comprehension of this commitment, I prayed ~

"Your life will consume all that there is of me. I’m ok with that, because that means what “I” do is really Your will, as You live in my body ~ my body is no longer mine, but Yours.  My thyoughts, my desires, my emotions all are included in the sacrifice. This I choose to accept." Whoa! Really?" That easy?

 

"We had often sung 'I want to be like Jesus,' but when we had the offer from a Person who is just like the Savior to come and live that life daily and hourly in us, we found how unreal we had been. How much there was in us that still wanted to live our own lives - that shrank from this 'sentence of death'!

 

We now began to see the meaning of the Savior's words in Luke 9:24, 'For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for My sake, the same shall save it.'

 

                                           &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

 

Oh my goodness, I just saw it. . . pride like a Pharisee had snuck into my thinking:  Oh “I am past that. I want to have You live in me; I will give up myself, my will, to You. Why see how wonderful I am.”

 

Oh Lord I am sorry; please forgive my haughty attitude. I repent my God. Give me Your mercy and grace to truly have a humble attitude. It is through Your training that I have any acceptable perspective at all. It is all You. Yes, Holy Spirit, I need You living in me, taking over my life. I bow before You humbly asking for Your intervention. You have been so good to me with encouragement, that I began to see myself as better than others.

 

My God that is so wrong! Help me BE right with You. Allow my innermost thoughts (even those I don’t know I have)  be transformed into humility, knowing I don’t deserve You. I am not worthy that You should enter within me; and in myself this is true; but, Lord, Your crucifixion and death and defeat of death has paid for my sins ~ all of them, so I am able to ask You to live Your life in me. Come, Holy Spirit, live Your life in me. I gladly submit to You and Your will.


Being very conscious of the fact that I'm no longer a spring chicken, I felt compelled to ask, "Can I do anything great for YOU? at my age? Lord I am willing. Help me to see what You would have me do". And the Holy Spirit inserted this Scripture  into my thoughts:


 Philippians 4:4-20 (TPT)

4 Be cheerful with joyous celebration in every season of life.

 Let joy overflow, for you are united with the Anointed One

5 Let gentleness[a] be seen in every relationship, for our Lord is ever near.[b]


 6 Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell him every detail of your life,

7 then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will make the answers known to you through Jesus Christ.[c]


 8 So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God,[d] praising him always. 9 Follow the example of all that we have imparted to you and the God of peace will be with you in all things.


Holy Spirit, thank You! You are so faithful to answer me! How marvelous is our God!!

Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!|

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
