imageOne of the first things you learn in sentence sturcture is whether it’s a person, place or thing?  At least that’s what I remember from my school days!

I have a question?  Where does The Holy Spirit fall in there for you?

The Holy Spirt is said to be a “Helper/Counselor” in John 14;16,26.

“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever – (John 14:16, NIV)

“But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”image

As a helper/counselor, I believe the Holy Spirt to be a person.  As a believer, He comes to live and dwell inside us.  The Spirit knows Gods thoughts and guides us in understanding His ways. (1 Corinthians 2:10-11, NIV)

If you don’t know Him and your in need of a “Helper”, His name is Jesus Christ!~Debra

Danger, Will Robinson!

January 10, 2015 — Leave a comment

Warning! Danger, Will Robinson!  Remember those words from Lost in Space?  The robot alerted Will Robinson when danger was headed his way.  Well, with absolutely no disrespect, I think the Holy Spirit is a bit like that too.

Have you ever started to do something and then hesitated for a moment thinking about why you shouldn’t do whatever it is?  You wrestle with the idea then talked yourself into going ahead.  Maybe you say something like, “Oh, nothing will happen to me. It’s just one time.  Nobody will know.  It won’t matter to anybody but me.”

We’ve all heard the reports of someone who tried drugs just one time, and it cost them their life.  The price was much too high.

Have you gotten to the point in your life where you’ve figured out that little pause is the prompting of your Teacher, the Holy Spirit?    Listen to what Jesus tell us in John 14:26, “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”

If the alert is there, Love Heart, heed it!  Your loving Father is warning you of danger!  Gwen~

 

R U Chikn?

We live in a funny world.  I just made a sandwich and the package of meat said this -Ingredients:  Mechanically separated chicken, chicken, chicken broth and salt.  Anybody out there know what a mechanically separated chicken is?

I know that sounds silly, but my point is this.  We are bombarded with all kinds of “information.”  Some of it we understand and some of it we don’t.  And at certain times, we might just try to decide on our own what it means.

The wonderful thing about God is He doesn’t leave anything to chance!  If you have been saved by the blood of Jesus, the Holy Spirit dwells within you.  He is our teacher and our guide.  We don’t have to try to figure out what God means.

James 1:5 says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.”

As you read the Bible, ask Him to explain it to you.  He’s never gone back on His word!  Gwen~

Broken Heart??

July 9, 2014 — Leave a comment

At lunch I was listening to a commentary on the radio.  The man was recalling the death of his parents.

His mother’s death was a sweet time together. No words, there wasn’t a need for any.  She had loved him and been a wonderful uplifting example. He did however pray a blessing over her and thanked her for all she had done for him.

His father’s passing wasn’t a time of love and refection but the son still prayed a blessing over his father to which his father cursed him.

The man reflected on how this had hurt him but was reminded by the Holy Spirit even though his earthly father hadn’t blessed him but made him feel as if he’d come into the world as a negative…He still had his Heavenly Father!

You may have not had the best relationship with your earthly father but that doesn’t define who you are!  Remember if you are a believer, you are a child of the King.  And if you aren’t, you can change that!

 

God loves you with a love that is unconditional, Love Heart!  Just ask Him in and He can set you Free!!

Devour

th How aware are you of Satan’s presence?  He’s there, Love Heart!  He will pick and pick until he trips you up!

“Be self-controlled and alert.  Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8)

devour: to swallow or eat up hungrily, voraciously, or ravenously, to consume destructively, recklessly, or wantonly, to engulf or swallow up.

Satan has no mercy and that’s why it’s important that you remain alert and under the control of the Holy Spirit at all times. If you do, the devil will flee!

“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7, NIV)  th (1)

I pray, Father God, for your protection from the evil one. ~Debra
