Navigating Our Circumstances

Trees and Grass Field Under Cloudy Sky during Daytime

Would you like to have your life changed? As an authentic Christian, the Holy Spirit is present to fill us with all the fullness of God, and this is the key to walking in His serenity each moment of our day, regardless of our circumstances.

What is it in your life that is causing you a problem right now?  Can you do something about it? Then, do it! If not, then change your focus and completely give the problem to God.

We empty ourselves of our inner clutter by journaling until we are totally void of our self and our issues, and totally filled with all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:14-19, Amplified).

He gives us wisdom and a vision for His plan for our life. Often, this terrifies us so much, that we fall on our face before Him, and pray that He will give us the fortitude and persistence to accomplish His will.

His Holy Spirit strengthens us and leads us each moment of the day as God's plan unfolds before us. We draw closer to Christ in us and completely trust Him with our circumstances.

Spending time in continuous prayer all day, we send our roots deeper into the soil of God's marvelous love. As His children, we experience and understand the four dimensions of His love for us, and we take heart through our trials (Ephesians 3:18).

God completely fills every fiber of our being with Himself, and we learn to rely on Him, trust in Him and walk by the direction of His Holy Spirit every moment of our day (Ephesians 3:19).

As we simplify our life by getting rid of the inner clutter first by journaling, then having a garage sale to rid our home and office of all unnecessary clutter; and then abiding in the Vine, we allow the Holy Spirit to lead us moment-by-moment throughout the day and night. 

Father God, teach us to continually dwell with Your Spirit who abides within us in the inner sanctum of our spirit. As we walk in Your Spirit's direction, we observe as You use us for Your purposes all through the day, and we enjoy the fruit of our labor and success in our endeavors. Remind us to relinquish our anxiety to You, and not to pay attention to Satan's worries and distractions, which attempt to monopolize our time and energy.

We do not want to run through life at full speed all day and then fall into an exhausted sleep all night. We do not want our mind to fill with distracted clutter all day so that we get pulled in too many directions at one time without Your goals and purpose. We want to be so Spirit-led in body, soul and spirit that You can use us to build Your Kingdom on this earth through one heart at a time.

Thought for the Day:
God’s voice cannot compete with our distractions or penetrate our awareness, because the clutter in our life is too overpowering and we are not listening for His voice; however, the fulfilled life, guided by the Spirit of God, takes time and effort and commitment, but our thoughts which are totally Spirit led, when acted upon, will bear fruit for the kingdom of God.
