When I chose my shoes (white) I was reminded about the Holy Spirit coming in the form of a dove...
John 1:32-34 John testified saying, "I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him. "I did not recognize Him, but He who sent me to baptize in water said to me, 'He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon Him, this is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.' "I myself have seen, and have testified that this is the Son of God."
I was inspired this week by Candace Payne, the Chewbacca Mom, when I watched a video about her encounter with the Holy Spirit. I really did not think the Holy Spirit was for me either way back when. But you what...the Holy Spirit is a gift, and it was for me. I received the gift of tongues at home praying with my mom.
I have another friend that was not sure it was for her either. She read Benny Hinn's book "Good Morning Holy Spirit". After reading the book she said she was sitting on her bed and simply said, God if you want me to have the Holy Spirit then give it to me. She said she began to speak in other tongues and knew that it was for her. It is a gift, we just have to receive it!
Romans 8:26 says, " Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered."
In other words, when we don't know what to pray the Holy Spirit prays for us! I am thankful for the gift of the Holy Spirit! This journey I am on is one that I would not have chosen for myself! At the same time I have such great peace and know that I am not alone! Even in the quiet of the night when crazy thoughts are thrown at me or in the middle of the day, the Holy Spirit is empowering me to persevere and trust in God! I can't give this gift to you but you can pray and ask God to reveal what He has for you!
I love you all and I am so thankful for your continued prayers and faith!
