When you complete this lesson, you will…
- Celebrate your return to God’s original intent of personal communion with you.
- Actively seek and expect creativity to flow through you because of the Presence of Holy Spirit within you.
- Recognize the end result of reasoning without the Spirit’s guidance.
- Commit yourself to only reasoning together with the Lord.
Before you begin…
Living a life of recognition that you are fused together with Holy Spirit and choosing to depend on that fusion every moment of the day requires the grace of God. It is contrary to our natural inclination to think that we have it all together, we can handle our own lives, we are smart enough to figure things out. It takes an active decision to release our own control and trust Him to be all He is within us. Pray in faith…
Lord, I draw near with a sincere heart, repentant and washed by the blood of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I set aside my thoughts, my reasoning, my theology, my fears and my pride. I relax, cease my own strivings, and tune to your flow within. Holy Spirit, I open my heart and mind to you. I ask that You anoint the eyes of my heart and enlighten my understanding. I ask that You grant me God’s thoughts, God’s pictures, God’s emotions and God’s creativity. Thank you for what you reveal, in Jesus’ name, Amen. (Ps. 46:10; Ps. 62:5; Heb. 10:22; Eph. 1:17,18; Jer. 29:13; Isa. 1:18; Jn. 7:37-39; Acts 2:25)
