You see, I have certainly been GOING to church for a long time and have used some of those excuses myself at times. But it doesn't explain the WHY we have not allowed the Holy Spirit to overflow in our life. It doesn't explain why we have left God out of our life, and walked away from him. You say, "I'm still a Christian." He says: "Prove it." You see it is not what we SAY. It about what we DO! Actions truly speak LOUDER than WORDS!
My heavenly Father is looking for a new breed of Christian. One who is not captivated by the things of this world; One who is not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; One who is not controlled by their DESIRES; but One who is CAPTIVATED by the Spirit of Christ to a lost and dying world.
Our life should be re-evaluated by the Spirit of Christ when we care more about how we appear to other people; When we are more interested in activities, sports, looks, social status, and pursuits of the things that draw us AWAY from Christ.
"O Father, please forgive me where and when I have failed you. You have given us all things in this life to enjoy, but when they become more important than YOU and your WORK, then they have become our IDOLS to worship. Help me get rid of every weight and sin that takes me away from You, Your People, the body of Christ, and purge my heart of every impurity in the precious name of your Son, Yeshua (Jesus). Amein!

What a storm we had blowing through our counties last night, and even today the rains are continuing in other places.
As I contemplated all of the lightning, hail, loud thunder, and the very hard rain, it was as if the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, "This is what I'm getting ready to do across this country. My Spirit is going to appear as the lightning, quick and electrifying, as the thunder, loud and bodacious, as the rain, so much and spreading, to the degree that miracles, signs, and wonders, are going to take place in the circumstances and situations that people think are impossible. I am the God of impossibilities and to those who have been praying and interceding for their loved ones for a long time, to those tired and discouraged; to those who are thirsting for more of me, Get Ready... The wind of my Spirit is beginning to blow."
My heart leaped within me with excitement as I had seen some circumstances just this very week, that were impossible in my human reasoning and understand, do a complete flip flop to the positive---without any human intervention. Relationships that had been destroyed for years and years, the Wind of the Spirit, restored in just a few minutes. Halleluiah!
"Thank you Heavenly Father for the wind of the Holy Spirit. Help me develop that intimate relationship with Him, the Holy Spirit, that will keep me sensitive to the voice of the Spirit."

How could we not be totally amazed by His Love and Grace "I praise you Lord because your grace is sufficient for all of my needs. Thank you for being with me in the fires (trials) of life. You have proven yourself to me so many times and you are Faithful. I love you Lord!"
