Place The Holy Spirit in The Foremost Place (Noon)

FOOD FOR THE SOUL

Isaiah 32:9-20

RHEMA

Isaiah 32:15 Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, And the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, And the fruitful field is counted as a forest.

David Green came from a simple Christian family. He lived with his family in a small town named Altus in the United States. His father was a shepherding Pastor with no more than 50 church members. Quite a large number of family members for a house with only 2 bedrooms, made David, and his siblings had to sleep in the kitchen on a folding mattress. From a very young age, David and his siblings were already used to work. Some sold things around and worked as a shop assistant to help their parents to provide for the whole family’s needs.

Growing up, David Green decided to build his own retail company named Hobby Lobby with his equipped experiences during his teenage time. In running a company, David applies the principle of PLACING GOD IN THE FOREMOST POSITION. He teaches his employees to not be trapped by the routines. Do something and find ways to do what we can do for God. David also set Hobby Lobby to close on Sundays. He did not change that policy even when the company was experiencing such a great loss. The employees still have their Sundays to worship with their families. Interestingly, Hobby Lobby can still be one of the leading retail companies in the United States until now by the way he applies it.

We have experienced our hard days last year. The various problems and economic crises happened which made our lives feel like an arid desert. But, the word of God says in our rhema today, that WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT IS POURED, then the desert will turn into a fruitful field. We can imagine how beautiful and a blessing it is. And, this year is the YEAR OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, the year where the Holy Spirit is poured out with no limit and He will work marvelously. Catch the message of God, the Holy Spirit has come. Welcome and place Him in the FOREMOST PLACE in our hearts and every aspect of our lives. And, behold on the miraculous things He does. The year 2021, will be a beautiful year when we place the Holy Spirit in the foremost place and priority in our lives. Amen! Lord Jesus bless you.
