Please The Holy Spirit (Morning)

TODAY’S RHEMA

Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.

It is our natural need to stay somewhere clean, tidy, and organized. Places that unorganized, filthy, and messy are repulsive. It makes us uncomfortable. Our hearts are just the same. Hearts filled with anger, disappointments, bitterness, and sorrow are repulsive to the Holy Spirit’s senses. As humans, we are attracted to things that clean, even though we are sinful. Now imagine Holy Spirit, He is the personification of Holiness itself, He just cannot stay wherever there are sin and corruption.

Deep inside, all of us want to please and satisfy His heart. But more than once we hesitate, is this the correct thing to do to please Him? We feel hopeless and therefore abandon our thoughts and intention right away. Another scenario: we are too busy making plans and in the end, it’s just it, a plan, myriad of them, without further realization. The answer to that question is easy: keep your heart and thought pure, clean, and focused solely on Him. That’s more than enough. Reflect on His words and make sure you apply those in your daily life.

Furthermore, be careful of what you are thinking and posting on social media. Make sure what you share, comment on, post or react upon are beneficial. Bring peace and joy, strengthen the faith, and useful. It will break His heart if what we share or post is something that unity shattering or worse ruin lives. It’s as easy as that. Be careful with your fingers, forgive others as He has already forgiven you, and loving toward each other, that’s it.
