POWER POST FOR THE WEEK
I know you’re busy but here’s your SPIRIT inspired POWER POST guaranteed to help you through the week:
JOHN 3:8 “THE WIND BLOWS WHERE EVER IT PLEASES. YOU HEAR ITS SOUND, BUT YOU CAN NOT TELL WHERE IT COMES FROM OR WHERE IT IS GOING. SO IT IS WITH EVERYONE BORN OF THE SPIRIT.”
Jesus gives us a word picture here of how God’s Spirit works, He uses the WIND for comparison purposes. There are many similarities. We can’t see the wind or Spirit but we can FEEL them both. If we’re attune to God’s Spirit, or as Jesus puts it, if we are ‘BORN OF THE SPIRIT,’ we can feel God’s Spirit working. We don’t always know exactly how the Spirit will affect us and like the wind we don’t know for certain where it’s LEADING US (BLOWING US). But once we allow God to start our life over again (BORN AGAIN) by his presence and leading, we know the results are always exciting and good.
READ THESE NEXT LINES ONLY IF YOU HAVEN’T BEFORE
I’ve found there is power pent up in the phrases from the Bible. They have been read, repeated aloud and pondered for several thousand years. In hours of need when I want direction, comfort or wisdom and God’s spirit I find these phrases help me feel connected to the millions of people before me who have been inspired by these same words. I feel when I repeat these words I am unlocking the spirit that inspired those original first words. I feel at peace and grateful for any help that comes from above. I send a new phrase and a few sentence commentary once a week. Look for them in the future.
