I Really Feel God At Work
After spending over 15 hours straight in the bed I was able to capture over 9 hours of sleep. I got out the house for the first time in two days. I discovered two hours later what I already knew. My legs are so weak that I told my wife I may start using a cane. Especially for any times I’m gonna be on my feet any longer than 30 minutes. I’ve been back in the tub the last three hours trying to ease my present discomfort.
Now, despite the prolonged condition of my body I really feel God at work. Only the Holy Spirit can bring you such peace that surpasses all understanding. Only the Holy Spirit can lead you to believe that great promise lies ahead despite still being in the midst of a great struggle. Only the Holy Spirit resurrects hope and joy within that is not dependent on any human circumstance.
I strongly feel God at work in a way I’ve not felt for over two years. I know God has amazing plans ahead for me, my family, and ministry. It may not all be as I initially envisioned it would be. But, it will be exactly as God perfectly planned it to be.
I trust God way more than myself. I just know God is greatly at work in, around, and despite me. I’m so thankful for the Holy Spirit resurrecting within me a renewed joy, peace, and hope. I can’t explain it, but I certainly can’t deny it.
Jesus said, “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. He will bring me glory by telling you whatever he receives from me.”…. “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
