The power of the Holy Spirit is real power that was gifted us (Acts 1:8). The more we we remain empty (surrender ego illusions) the more roominess for God's Holy Spirit to fill us. We are here to be God's Divine miracle workers!
And it happened that the father of Publius was sick in bed with recurring attacks of fever and dysentery; and Paul went to see him, and after praying and laying his hands on him, he healed him.
The mystical message of the Good News can only be experienced. The whole problem of any conflict around the truth is the misperceptions fueled by the ego. Stop, pause, breathe~truth will be revealed personally when this is all that is desired.
1 Peter 3:18
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit.
May we desire to join with one another in what is common ground. We can waste time on what appears to be different, which will only cause more separation (pain and hurt). Unitive goals return us to our oneness in God. May we join in love and peace today. Rejoice in rebirth!
3 Be eager and strive earnestly to guard andkeep the harmony and oneness of [and produced by] the Spirit in the binding power of peace.
4 [There is] one body and one Spirit—just as there is also one hope [that belongs] to the calling you received—
5[There is] one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of [us] all, Who is above all [Sovereign over all], pervading all and [living] in [us] all.
Dear Divine Father/Mother~God~cause us to experience your beauty that is before us now. May the scales of resentments, prejudice and fear fall from our sight. Your love encompasses everything!
“I, the fiery life of divine essence, am aflame beyond the beauty of the meadows, I gleam in the waters, and I burn in the sun, moon and stars ... I awaken everything to life.” — Hildegard von Bingen, Liber Divinorum (Book of Divine Works)
All healthy decisions are born from truth. God's Holy Spirit is always moving and breathing us into alignment with truth (prayer and meditation~vital component!).
A decision is only that "a decision" until the next step is an action that carries out the decision. For example if we decide to go to Church, the next step is the action of actually going to Church (Physical action). Therefore making a decision is a first step towards the next step which is into action.
Lord~cause us right decisions in all areas of our life and breath us into effortless actions that manifest the decisions~Amen
It is the application of spiritual principles that are vital for spiritual freedom. Intellectual understanding of spiritual information and principles will always fall short. When we live "by" spiritual truth in it's practice, we are free. Self knowledge will fall short as well. Our greatest growth is in the surrender to the spiritual truth and "demonstrating" it.
John 8:32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
Repent~renew~restore! We are set free when our inner soul has been cleansed through Christ. The Holy Spirit is made alive and manifest through this Holy transformation. It is done-acceptance of this is vital (1Peter 2:24)
But let all those who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice; let them ever sing and shout for joy, because You make a covering over them and defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You and be in high spirits.
