Quench Or Activate
Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word – it gives truth and the Holy Spirit to lead you in it. God reminding me recently you can quench the Holy Spirit in your life (God said don’t do that! - I Thessalonians 5:19), or you can activate Him – a much better plan. There are really three settings on that knob. If you are sitting in your room in silence, your mind will make the noise. What you think of – will lead your next moments. Let’s say you turn on a worship or prayer set, to set the atmosphere – that immediately becomes a protection for your mind. Not that you couldn’t override it with less than God’s thoughts, but you are activating the atmosphere with the Holy Spirit. Worship is wings for Him. But let’s say you turn on the vacuum cleaner… The worship music that you were listening to, will be drowned out by the noise. In your life, regarding the influence of the Holy Spirit… there are three settings on that knob. You can live in silence (leaving the car in neutral), you can pray in the Spirit – which activates Him (putting the car in drive), or you can quench Him (putting the car in reverse)… ignoring His prompting, when He nudges you to do something that God wants you to do, or to prevent you from doing something that is not God’s best for you. You either walk in Him, or ignore Him. Silence gives you a 50/50 chance. But if you activate the Spirit – through praying in the Spirit – and choosing the atmosphere of His presence through worship, it enables you and propels you towards the Holy Spirit’s leading in your life. Just like turning on the vacuum cleaner can drown out the sounds of the Spirit. Not saying don’t vacuum, this is just a spiritual example. In fact, when you’re cleaning your house – that’s a great time to pray in the Spirit. Praying for you, that you will always activate the Holy Spirit in your life, that you would pray in the Spirit to increase your faith, and that you would choose to create an environment in your home, or your car, that invites His presence. Not only will you be far less likely to quench Him, you’ll be more prone to walk in Him. Praying that you will always activate the Holy Spirit in your life, and reject anything that would quench Him… These things are spiritually discerned, the natural mind wouldn’t understand. Praying that you will walk in the Spirit, and live by the Spirit of God, so He can fulfill the purpose He created you for! If this sounds foreign to you… praying that you will review the Relationship Topic – The Filling of the Holy Spirit. And if you’re filled, but you haven’t been diligent in keeping Him active in your mind, heart and spirit, praying that you will review the PRISM Topic – The Purpose of Tongues in your life. These are your ‘superpowers’ to live the life God has for you. Jesus promised, you will receive power. He wasn’t lying. It is so very true. Praying that you will activate the Holy Spirit in your life, so you always walk in Him, not by your mind, but by your spirit.
Love you all,
