God is interested in partnering with us. He never intended to save us and then have a hand’s off attitude. He wants to give us every chance to succeed. He always had it in mind to give us a Great Power. The Spirit of the Living God descended onto earth because of a promise Jesus made.(John 14:16) It is a Gift to anyone who chooses to follow God. It is an Intercessor, Comforter, Advocate, Counselor that will forever reside in the being of all faithful followers. You need it and so do I because we are still here and we’re going to take hits that we cannot overcome without God’s Power. Joint Prayer through the Holy Spirit is perfect. Not the composition, but the Essence of God and us melding together in a song of words that calls out to Him in need, praise, and worship. It was the Lord’s desire to be in harmony with us through prayer so He did not hand us a weak version of His own Power. He gifted us with a Power that is greater and stronger than any evil that co- inhabits our planet. “The One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” 1John 4:4 It is a part of you and you can harness it’s capabilities in prayer without exception. So regardless of what happens today, we are in sync with the Spirit which leads in us in spiritual music to God’s Heart and will not allow us to be overcome
Darkness is prevalent. Wherever there is a corruption of what is good and right, darkness settles. You might be living your best life, but if you have any interactions with other humans, it’s guaranteed you’ll hit patches of darkness. If you chose to live a solitary life on a remote mountain, you might avoid a lot of it. There’s times, I wouldn’t mind. It’s not a possibility right now and I’m certain that God doesn’t will that for me anyway. What is His will for me when I am confronted with the dark? “Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation. Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life.” Phill 4:2 His Will is that I don’t add to it. He desires that I take the Flashlight, which is the Word of Life and turn it on full blast to illuminate the way and the Way. The purpose is twofold. I need to be able to navigate through it and also make that path bright for others so they cross from the Dark into the Light. The level of darkness is irrelevant. The Light of Life obliterates darkness regardless of the depth. Today may be a day that you find yourself walking through a dark place because of someone else’s sin. You’re a star. You shine and guide and you exchange dark for light. The darker, the brighter.
Blogs are so wordy and self serving sometimes. I don’t even like to say I have a blog. It sounds ordinary and common. Not every blog is like this. I hope mine isn’t but how would I really know? They’re my words that I am putting down. When I am typing them, they sound fine. But I’m not on the receiving end. Even if whatever I wrote was in the 1 percent of all the best blogs out there, it would never really have the power and impact of God’s Words. He wrote a “blog’. The words from His Head are life transforming and full of Spirit. Jesus declared this in John 6:63. I could never claim that mine are. There is a limit to mine, but his are limitless. They overrun man made rules and traditions. They are alive and still work even today, thousands of years after he spoke them. They are powerful enough to impact situations and people in a way that our words, are incapable of. I am a product of the transforming work of His words. It is because I have experienced the supernatural Word of God that I am convinced His Word is the ultimate Blog.
