DON’T STAND STILL but FLOW WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT 

The following are a couple of experiences that my wife Daphne recorded. We hope you also will be encouraged 


DO SOMETHING


I was looking at a picture on a card... it was a Christmas time.. the windows had decorations in them and it was snowing.  Below on the street sat a black cat, slowly getting covered with snow and staring at some fish in the window of a fish shop. 


The scripture from Matthew 7; 7-8 came to me......”Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find; Knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; He who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”


The picture spoke to me of not holding back or sitting down waiting for things to happen ( like the cat looking at the fish). We need to be proactive and  ASK the Lord for what we want.  SEEK the Lord and we will be blessed, There may be plenty to see (like the abundance of fish and Christmas fare in the shop window ), but unless we move and DO SOMETHING,(Knock)  we will never be any closer to it and we may spend all our time just wishing and hoping to be partakers of good things.


If we don’t step out and move, there is also a danger of missing out completely..... just as the cat will be eventually covered in snow if it does not move



RIVER FLOWING


On another occasion early one Boxing Day, while walking through the orchard opposite our property, we walked alongside the bank of the creek.  Because of the amount of rain we had had, it was flowing fast and forcefully.


The sound of the water rushing on by caught my attention and when I ‘TURNED ASIDE” to watch the waters I thought of the Holy Spirit and the way He moves.


The water in the creek was flowing on, regardless of the many boulders in its way.  When the boulders were too big for the water to go over them, it took a different route around them but kept going anyway.


I felt as though the Lord was saying to me that Yes, His Holy Spirit is flowing forcefully.

Nothing will stand in the way of His Spirit.

Nothing will be so big that the Lord cannot accomplish what He wants to do.

His Spirit will continue to forcefully move in these times.

Flow with Him.

Do not become an obstacle, or He will pass us by.

Regardless of what we do, He WILL continue to flow and move on and accomplish His will, with or without us.


A verse came to mind Matt. 12: 30“He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.”  . Let us all move forward together in the power of the Holy Spirit to accomplice the plans and purposed God has for our lives.


Our songs for you this time on You Tube are ‘I Speak Jesus’ sung by Charity Gayle, I Do Believe by Gaither Vocal Band and Holy Forever (live) Chris Tomlin feat with Jenn & Brian Johnson.  


On behalf of Daphne we pray Gods blessings on you all as you move forward this year in the power of His love and the anointing of the Holy Spirit 


Blessings Malcolm
