Happy Birthday, Will! Wishing you a wonderful day filled with all things awesome as you are, and love you so much!
Today’s message from God Calling -A.J. Russell, reminds us that miracle working power is not flesh and blood in action-per say-but God in action through flesh and blood. “Not by might or by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD.” That scripture is referenced with the message today. Some friends and I were discussing living for the LORD this morning. I said I thought that the sum total of it all was to do everything as if unto the LORD, and seeking first the kingdom of Heaven, or seeking God’s will, word, and ways first always empowers us to do just that.
It is the Spirit of the LORD that brings the might and power to our thinking, attitudes, and actions. When Jesus told us to seek first the kingdom of Heaven, and all these things will be added unto us as well, He wasn’t just talking about food, clothes, and other material needs. Sometimes your most desperate need is just to be able to get up out of the bed in the morning. Sometimes your most dire need is to be quiet and know that He is God, and to hold your tongue and exercise divine patience. Let me tell you, for some of us divine patience definitely requires the power of the Holy Spirit. I have to tell you that when I began to seek God first, as in my morning prayer, it changed my focus and my thinking, attitudes, and actions.
Yeah, we’re all of us human, and limited in our flesh. But thankfully, Jesus did send the Holy Spirit just for us. It is that very Spirit that brings the might and power to our walk through this world. You may only feel just a little power at first, but pretty soon, it’s all over you-inside and out. That’s the favor that surrounds you like a shield. You know God loves you. You know God’s with you. You know that, come what may, God’s got you.
