‘God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.’ (Ephesians 3:20 MSG)
Remember when you were a little child and you learned that you couldn’t do yourself in by holding your breath too long? After a while, instinct takes over, and you gasp and suck air like great big bellows flapping air in your face. And, then you gulp air in til you are breathing full and normal again.
Instinct is like that. Our Creator did not weave us together and expect us to live on sneaking little sips of air every once in a while.
The God of the Universe made us with His instinct intact in us, His conquering impulse is married into our being like a feather that moves on the breath of the Almighty. And, Beloved, we are called to blend His innate prompting into every minute of our days until His power in us becomes muscle memory … reacting on pure Holy instinct.
Act on instinct.
