Love you all, praying for you.
Praise God, truck loading today. What a blessing to do what God directs our hands to do. Don’t despise the mundane. God has joy in obedience, He has purpose in all work, and He can make even the mundane – magnificent. Praying that whatever God tells you to do today, He would give you joy and excellence in it. Love God, Love people.
I’m so thankful that God reveals mysteries. I’m so far from fully understanding, but the more I seek Him, the more I spend time in PRISM, the more He reveals. God reminded me - revelation is not to inform you, it’s to transform you. So what He brings to your understanding – impacts your walk with him, and your relationship with others. Praying that you will guard against information without application. It’s the difference between just knowing about, and really knowing. Praying that God will always bring more understanding through your obedience.
A couple things have puzzled me for a long time; like Proverbs 8:27 - I was there when He set the heavens in place. Wisdom is talking, so obviously wisdom was there with God when He created the World. Well is that four people now? We know God was there Gen 1:1 – In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” The Holy Spirit was there. Gen 1:2 says the Spirit of God was moving on the face of the deep. And we know that Jesus also was there… John 1:2 says He was with God in the beginning. (Jesus the Word) So when God said "Let us" make man in our image (Gen 1:26) The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit - was the "us." But wisdom was there too? So another person?
Another thing that I wondered about. Proverbs 9:1 Wisdom has built her house; she has hewn out its seven pillars. I always wondered what the seven pillars were. Then I’m reading in Revelation 1:4 John, To the seven churches in the province of Asia: Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne, and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. So when John saw in Heaven the Revelation of Jesus - just like creation - God was there, (Him who is and was and is to come), Jesus, was there (the firstborn from the dead), and the Holy Spirit was there – the Bible says the seven spirits…
Isaiah 11:1-2 may give further insight – A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him – the Spirit of Wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD. Wow. That’s seven. So that Spirit of Wisdom was the one with God in the beginning - part of the Holy Spirit. This is the mystery of God. Wow, I have so much to learn yet… The Spirit God (that’s the Holy Spirit) but also with Him, are The Spirit of Wisdom (that’s 2) The Spirit of Understanding, the Spirit of Counsel, The Spirit of Power, The Spirit of Knowledge, and the Spirit of the Fear of the LORD. (that’s 7) These could well be the 7 Spirits that surround the throne - all a part of the Holy Spirit – in the wonderful mystery of God. And if that is true, than yes, they were all with God in the beginning. That’s why when you are filled with the Holy Spirit – you receive power – because He is the Spirit of power. It also means – when we are filled with the Holy Spirit – the fullness of the Holy Spirit is in us – we receive all of Him!
Are you ever not quite sure of the next step you should take? Do you ever need the Holy Spirit – whom God said would lead you into all truth? Do you ever need wisdom, or understanding, or counsel or power or knowledge or the fear of the LORD? Praise God – walk in the Spirit and you will also walk in The Spirit of Wisdom, The Spirit of Understanding, The Spirit of Counsel, The Spirit of Power, The Spirit of Knowledge and The Spirit of the Fear of the LORD. (See The Holy Spirit Packet - It’s a great review of What God promised, and what you are walking in.)
Praying for you - that you will always pray in the Spirit – so you walk in the Holy Spirit, Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Power, Knowledge, and the Fear of the LORD. Praying that every time you do PiVAT before Dinner to get God’s plan for you for tomorrow, and every time you come back to PRISM throughout the day – that it would never be you writing down your thoughts, but you asking the HOLY SPIRIT to lead you to write down God’s thoughts. Just ask the Holy Spirit to do your PiVAT and PRISM for today. He will lead you into all truth, wisdom, understanding, counsel, power, knowledge, and the Fear of the LORD. Praise God! He's everything we need. He is so good!
Love you all,
