-Up to this time you have not asked a [single] thing in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]; but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy (gladness, delight) may be full and complete-
I am hoping that You read Yesterday’s Lesson…otherwise You will be completely miffed today.
Yesterday’s Lesson Was Titled, ‘Quit Looking and Start Leaning on The Holy Spirit!’- Part 1.
Go Check it out and Come Back!!
Here’s Part 2 of Our Story…
After I finally learned how to keep my part of Our agreement…I finally ceased my search – I Quit Looking!!
At some point during that week, I started to notice that I wasn’t worrying anymore…God was giving Me His Grace in this trial/test, and I was learning to receive It!!
He was giving me His ‘special’ favor to accept and deal with my problem, with a sort of ease, that I was not accustomed to having, under these circumstances.
The Holy Spirit was setting my free from the tormenting, anxiety that would normally, hover, linger, and keep me awake at night…but because I was resting in God’s grace…I was sleeping peacefully, through the entire night – even after my 3am trip to the bathroom, when my mind would normally begin to start racing – I continued resting!!
Also, The Spirit of Expectancy was upon me, and I was starting to feel a sense of excitement, as I began anticipating that there was good news coming, in regards to my lost ticket…
I was Waiting on God…’Full-of-Faith!!’
So as I was going about with my normal routine (remember…that was my part of the deal), Hubie, my baby boy, and I were cleaning my bedroom.
He was helping me to pick things up off the floor, so I could vacuum. We picked everything up and We placed it on the chaise lounge in my bedroom.
So now You can Picture, a mound of stuff…clothes, books, and toys…all piled up on the chaise, and of course, Hubie, who was about 2 then, so he was naturally drawn to the top of the mound. That’s where he felt safe, from the noise of ‘The Cleaner!!’
Funny…It Seems like All toddlers are afraid of the Vaccuum Cleaner…Lol!!
Anyway, after I was done with the vacuum, Hubie was ready to jump up and down on the chaise, because He thinks it’s really…a trampoline…Uh-Huh!!
So as he began to push all the stuff off the chaise…and onto the floor…again, I caught Him!!
As I proceeded to fuss at the 2 year old about his brand new mess, My eyes caught hold of a phone book that had fallen off of the chaise…and was opened wide…pages exposed…and inside was an envelope that read…’Amtrak.’
You could have bought me with a Penny!!
I couldn’t believe my eyes, as I grabbed the envelope and verified that the tickets were inside. I had absolutely no remembrance of even placing the tickets in that phone book…but The Holy Spirit Remembered!!
I was overjoyed, because The Holy Spirit had come through for Me. I was like the Woman with the Lost Coin in Luke 15:8-10. I was calling everybody on the planet, saying…
“Rejoice With Me…that which was lost, has been found!!”
God Is So Amazing!!
I Thank God for His Holy Spirit!!
Remember…This agreement was His idea. He had whispered to me, in my brokenness, reminding me that He was there…living in my heart…where Jesus had sent Him.
He was telling me that He did not want to Be ignored, anymore. He wanted to play a FULL, ACTIVE, role in My Everyday Life!! He wanted to begin to Reveal The Power of God to Me…and show me that I can’t do this ‘Christian Walk’ Victoriously, without tapping into His Grace…that empowers me to Do ALL Things Through Jesus Christ!!
HE was making His gentle declaration, that ‘He Is Jesus…Alive…Living In Me, With Me, and Through Me!!’
He Dared Me to Ask Him…I Did…And He Came Through!!
And He wants You to ‘Ask Him,’ Today!!
If You have Not accepted Jesus Christ, as Your Personal Savior, NOW is the Time..Today is the Day…This is The Year!!
Ask Him to Come In and Reign as The Lord of Your Life…He Will Come, Today…Sending You His Precious, HOLY SPIRIT – Your very own, built-in Life Coach!!
And If Jesus is Already the Lord of Your Life…Put The Holy Spirit to Work In Your Life…Let Him Do His Job!!
He Is Your Counselor, Comforter, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strenghthener and Your Stand-by!!
– I have told you these things while I am still with you. But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.-
I Dare You to Try Him Out…Go Ahead and ‘Ask Him!!’
Remember…God Loves You and So Do I!!
