Eternal

 

You were
born of Me
when you
believed

given
eternal life
My witness
received.

A laid down life is eternal.

“Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God. This is He who came by water and blood – Jesus Christ . . .and it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself. . .And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.” 1 John 5:1,6,10,11 NKJV

Child Of God

 

Behold how much
I love you
for now you’re called
My child

abiding in Me
and Me in you
My Spirit
testifies.

A laid down life is called “child” by God.

“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.” 1 John 3:1,24 NKJV

There Is A Holy Spirit

source – Wikipedia

“And it happened,while Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples
he said to them, ‘Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?’ And they said to him, ‘We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.’ ”  Acts 19:1-2 NKJV

There are other ‘spirits’ , but only one Holy Spirit.

Thank You, Lord , for Your Holy Spirit. And here is a simple poem . . .

There is
a Holy Spirit

who always
testifies

to the
glory of God

and His Son
Jesus Christ.

God bless you with His Holy Spirit!

“As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.’ ” Acts 13:2 NKJV

‘Separate’ can sound a little sad and scary to me.

Thank You, Lord, for separating us unto Yourself.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Let us be
called out
to a work we
have not known

separated
unto Him
covered, kept
and grown.

God bless you as you are separated unto Him today.

“And He said to them, ‘It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.’ ” Acts 1:7 NKJV
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8 NKJV

There are things I don’t have to know about because God does.

Thank You, Lord, for being in control so we can be Your witnesses. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Do not struggle
with times and seasons

I will tell you
what you need to know

to be My witness
where I place you

to share the gospel
wherever you go.

God bless you – His witness – today!

“But the children struggled together within her; and she said, ‘If all is well, why am I this way?’  So she went to inquire of the LORD.”  Genesis 25:22 NKJV

The Holy Spirit is so good at letting us know when something is going on inside of us.

Thank You, Lord, for encouraging us to come and inquire of You always.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Prepare us
O Lord
to hear
what You say

as we come
and inquire
‘why are  we
this way?’

God bless you as you inquire of Him today!
