it’s your move

full custody

  There are believers who need the reminder that deeper than mind and feeling and will, deeper than the soul, where these have their seat, in the depths of the renewed spirit, there comes, at re-birth, the Holy Spirit to dwell forever. His indwelling is there, first of all, and all through, to be recognized by faith. Even when I cannot see the least evidence of His working, Hopefully I am quietly and reverently to believe that He dwells in me. In that faith I am restfully and trustfully to count upon His working, and to wait for it. In that faith I must very distinctly deny my own wisdom and strength, and in childlike self-abnegation depend upon Him to work.

His first workings may be so feeble and hidden that I can hardly recognize them as coming from Him; they may appear to be nothing more than the voice of conscience, or the familiar sound of some Bible truth. Here is the time for faith to hold fast the Master’s promise and the Father’s gift, and to trust that the Holy Spirit is within and will guide. Out of the hidden depths His power will move and take possession of mind and will, and the indwelling in the hidden recesses of the spirit will grow into a being filled with His fullness.man

  “Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His” (Rom. 8:9).

We are involved in the greatest waiting game of all. God is waiting for us to believe, and we are waiting on him to give us something. Who do you think wins, Puny man or Almighty God?

Lord I thank you that you are patient, and sometimes I’m just incredibly stupid, which although not a sin, I still confess it happens way to often.

Thanks always for the prayers, comments and suggestions, and especially to those who know my very warped sense of humor. God Bless
