‘give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit.’
(1 Thessalonians 5:18, 19 ESV)
Our world is hyper-pushing worldliness.
-just a peek, press this link
-trash talking words
-winning at all costs
– …and lying about it
… all are ways to try to “fit in” and look good to others,
… all are ways to snuff out His Spirit in us.
Sweetheart, do not give in to that! The only measuring stick you and I need in this messed-up world is the one provided by Father God.
His mark is on your very soul.
Our longing for Him,
our desire to know Him,
to be changed by Him,
to follow His ways of acute insight,
His sheltering ways,
these are the evidence that He exists,
that He continues to live as huge, not invisible, but the actively felt God-Force in our life and in our world right now.
He is that tug, pulling something stubborn from the ground of us, helping us to let die what must die; helping us to let live what must live.
Be quenched in His Spirit!
