Are you tapping into Holy Spirit power?

Are you living up to your God-planned potential? 



I recently discovered a small boutique and today I met the owner, a talented jeweler, mother of five children, who also runs a refugee ministry. I asked how she has time for anything and she told me how the Holy Spirit works in her life. 

I was blown away because at Bible study we talked about why so many people lead dry, dull and blah lives even though they're super Christians. 

Do you know why? It's because they don't use the Holy Spirit's gifts!  Or there's something like secret sin holding them back! 

In Exodus, we see how God fills us with His Spirit and gives us gifts to be used for His glory. Read this:

Exodus 31:2-4 Eternal One: Look, I have a special calling upon one of the sons of Judah. His name is Bezalel the son of Uri, son of Hur. I have filled him with God’s Spirit, gifted him with wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and skills with a variety of crafts. He is an expert designer and works well with gold, silver, and bronze. 

Yes! 

If you received the power of the Holy Spirit, why aren't you using it to your full potential? You should wake up excited about your day, ready to use your talent. 

Beth Moore says older people decide that being creative is too much hassle or inconvenient. Younger ones don't want to be teachable.

But God gives wisdom, understanding, knowledge and skills to his children to be used! 

Do you use those gifts at home, work or in community? 

Is it possible you are trying too hard to do works on your own without God's approval or in His Spirit?

The busy jeweler laughed about her Mondays "off" from her shop. She uses every minute of her day to live out God's higher plan. She's creative in her work and I know she has to be creative in her ministry. 

God's energy radiates as she speaks. She's inspiring! 

We should use our gifts for God's glory in all areas of our lives. We don't need glamorous lives to be creative in God's power! 

You can make an impact with your attitude and with your story right where God has you!

Go!

13 They will take root
in your house, LORD God,
    and they will do well.
14 They will be like trees
that stay healthy and fruitful,

Sin on the journey

Before I know it, sin drips from my mouth and floods my mind. Oh the struggle.
Romans 7:22-23 I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free. 
My current struggle is in not easily recognizing the extent of my sinfulness. I can easily preach it, but continuous righteous living eludes me.
Ouch. It hurts. I reveal this because I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul, but the sinner in me wins. It's the same struggle the A…
