Have You Considered This?

Just before Jesus returned to heaven  He gave the disciples some specific instructions to prepare them  for ministry!  It is interesting to me that they had not already learned about how to minister. Maybe they depended on Him too much and didn’t really learn for themselves, any way they needed some advance training and instructions.

In Matthew 28, Jesus said, “Go into all the world for Me. . .and do the impossible.”  Well He didn’t exactly say it like that but he said it in a way that I would think that is exactly what he meant.  Look at Matthew 28:18-20 and Acts 1:4-8.  I wonder what the disciple thought, I know I would have thought I can’t do it.

Jesus actually gave them more instructions, He told them to wait. In Acts 1 He said to wait for the Holy Spirit–when the Holy Spirit comes–do you get it?  When the Holy Spirit comes.

Do you ever go off “have cocked”?  It should never happen if we wait on the Lord. We are so use to doing it ourself that we forget to wait on the Lord.

I was talking to my precious daughter in love this morning, I just love it when she calls and chats.  We were talking about our oldest granddaughter wants to try out for a musical.  Her mother has put it in the Lord’s hands.  If He thinks it would be a good experience for her He will see to it that she gets the part.  If it would not be a good experience for her He will see that she does not get the part.  I was never that smart when raising my children, I decided and never consulted the Lord.  Life could have been easier.  Wait on the Lord.

I do know God wants to work miracles in your life and mine.  Let’s wait on the Holy Spirit to give us that nudge but let’s not let the moment pass unnoticed.

So you are asking how my weight is?  I am holding my own!  I have not lost a pound for a month but I haven’t really tried.  What I am trying to do is stay put until January and then hit it hard to get off 10 more pounds.  Does that sound like a good plan to you?

Can You Imagine?

Can you imagine what kind of  woman  person we would be if every act and attitude were formulated from the heart of God?  It’s impossible for me to even totally imagine it.  Just think of the significance this kind of spiritual experience could be to every person and circumstance we come in contact with.

The one thing I am positive about is we must pursue God and persist in prayer.  I really want to be filled by the Holy Spirit.

Brennan Manning, in The Ragamuffin Gospel, says: The Holy Spirit’s power cannot be harnessed.  his power cannot be used to accomplish anything other than the Father’s will.  He is not a candy dispenser.  He is not a vending machine.  He is not a genie waiting for someone to rub His lamp the right way.  He is holy God.
