I’m linking up once again this week Lisa Jo Baker and the Five Minute Friday crowd. Once a week she provides a writing prompt…..the rules; write for five minutes, no editing, just write what is in your heart. Link up with the FMF crowd at http://lisajobaker.com/2014/06/five-minute-friday-messenger/
Post a link then go back and encourage the one who linked up before you. This week the prompt is “Messenger”. Ready, set, go!
Acts 2: 14-21 “In the Last Days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on every kind of people. Your sons will prophesy, also your daughters. Your young men will see visions, your old men dream dreams. When the time comes I’ll pour out my Spirit on those who serve me, men, and women both, and they’ll prophesy. I’ll set wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below. Blood and fire and billowing smoke, the turning black and the moon blood red. Before the Day of the Lord arrives, the Day tremendous and marvelous. And whoever calls out for help to me, God will be saved.”
He comes like the fierceness of a spring storm, winds so strong they are impossible to ignore. The Messenger, He comes in gentle whisperings: tugging at our heart strings, being the little voice inside that cannot be ignored. The messages He brings are as wide and varied as that of the oceans He created. Gentle messages of love and grace, like the waves lapping at our toes buried in warm sand. His messages can be bigger, stronger; rolling into our hearts like a tsunami, taking our breath away and seemingly bent on destruction, but in reality bent on healing our brokenness. The Messenger: His focus on one thing and one thing alone, increasing our relationship with our Heavenly Father, bringing us on our knees to the foot of the cross, to our bridegroom, Jesus Christ…….oh listen my sisters in Christ, listen to The Messenger. Linger in His love, let Him speak to your heart through His Messenger, the Holy Spirit, step out in obedience and faith!
The Messenger…..He longs to bring personalized messages of love, grace, thanksgiving, and truth to our hearts. He is one third of the one whole of God, He is the Holy Spirit and His power, His love and His boldness is like nothing on this earth. Pray to Him dear sisters, pray for His love and His power; like a father gifting a small child, He longs to gift the Holy Spirit to your hearts, to dwell with you and in you forever and ever. Pour it out Father, pour it out until we are drowning in the love!!
