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!

Psalm 92:

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,

15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7
Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees, who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad.

But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt earlier this we…
