I still think of all my writing as potential spamming to folks who tolerate me clogging their inbox. But it’s not the Joy of Spamming, it’s the Joy of Spiriting.
I mean why else would I wake up at 530am just to spam my friends’ email. Even the cat has often to wait upon the Lord as I write before entertaining her needs for the day. This morning however I did open the front door for her entertainment of “cat TV” gazing thru the clear storm door. She’s knowing something will happen, creatures moving, she is MESMERIZED.
MESMERIZED – That’s how we should be looking for the Holy Spirit everyday. Mesmerized and realizing that the Joy of Spiriting is intended to be a part of our daily life. Ask the Lord every day “Why am I here?” Every day will be a different circumstance but essentially the same answer: you exist for MY JOY!!! MY LOVE!!! MY HEART!!!
Living Holy Spirit INTENSE always comes at our EXPENSE – in a good way. Why? Because we are to give all our lives away. REALLY. But that also means we are to give our troubles away to the Lord, and give all the things that will bend our noses out of shape to the Lord, and give all the angst too. It IS a Spirit gush that comes at our expense of time and life because we ARE to pick up our crosses each day to give up our agendas and instead crave for the Lord’s leading to His intended life for us. We do live in His footsteps to the cross but we walk on – past the cross too and past the open tomb and INTO the ABUNDANT LIFE. It is like cheating the system to live in JOY because He already cheated death. We walk wondering not wandering.
Does that mean we live in fear? NO. Does that mean we live in uncertainty? NO. We live UNDER HIS WING. We live out the scripture: ‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. (Matthew 25:29)
We live out the living of life in a broken world but NOT BLINDLY. We are to know when He puts a challenge in front of us to bear or work on or tolerate or investigate. In all these things He challenges us more and more.
SAYETH THE LORD: I WANT ALL TO KNOW MY LOVE. Let us all be sharing His Love.
Let’s get sensitive to His InTensitive.
And the disciples came and said to Him, “Why do You speak to them in parables?” He answered and said to them, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says:
‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand,
And seeing you will see and not perceive;
For the hearts of this people have grown dull.
Their ears are hard of hearing,
And their eyes they have closed,
Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears,
Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn,
So that I should heal them.’
But blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear; for assuredly, I say to you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.“
