TITLE: FROM THE HEART OF GOD
VERSE: [Jesus said,] “It is best for you that I go away, because if I don’t, the Advocate won’t come. If I do go away, then I will send him to you.” JOHN 16:7
“Very few of My people believe that it was best for them for Me to go away. Many long for the experience of the disciples who sat around Me listening to My words. It’s hard for many to see their relationship with My Spirit as ‘better,’ because for most, it isn’t. They have forgotten how real and tangible that relationship is supposed to be.
“The Father and I are seated in heaven. The Spirit is your essential relationship with God. Yes, I promised I would always be with you, and I am —in the Spirit. He and the Father and I are one, just as you are in Me and I am in you. But as you practically connect with Me, as you pray to the Father, as you listen for My voice, as you read My Word —as you relate to God in every way —remember that, in this age, it is all through the Spirit. Don’t neglect Him.
“In a relationship between the humble and the proud, the humble defers to the proud. Remember that God is humble. Refuse to be prideful, or you will rarely experience His presence.
“The Spirit doesn’t advertise Himself, so you will have to look for Him. He lives in you, but you won’t be aware of that unless you choose to be. He is available to guide you, but only when you ask. He is available to empower you, but only when you depend on Him to do so. He is available to speak to you, but only when you engage in conversation and remember to listen at least as much as you talk. He is, in truth, everything you need Him to be, but in practice only what you allow Him to be in you.”
Holy Spirit, make me more aware of You. Help me depend on Your enormous power and emulate Your enormous humility. I submit to Your leadership. I listen in silence as I invite You to speak as freely and loudly as You want to.
