The Secret Source Inside of You!

What’s up beautiful people?!

Happy Tuesday and HELLOOOO Spring Break!

My God it’s finally here!

>>>> Side note: Mentioned in The Uncomfortable Truth , as a first grade teacher assistant always on the move, hopping around with 6 and 7-year-old know-it-alls, this week is truly a blessing. No classroom, no kids, no clock. Just me, myself and Abba. Ah what a dream come true!

To jump start such phenomenal week, I attended the Jonathan McReynolds: Make More Room Tour with my best friend Maya! Talk about a blast!

With a theatre full of young souls (old too 😉) crying out to make room for our Father to come in and take the place of our selfish ways (including mine) it truly encouraged me to keep pushing forward. Most importantly, reminding me who truly has the power in any case scenario:

Luke 10:19

Jesus explains to us perfectly in Luke 10 verse 19 that He has provided us with  AUTHORITY over every and any scheme attempted by the enemy.  Which means anything the enemy tries to push towards you, you truly have the authority to push it back and declare “NOT TODAY SATAN.” Now, don’t get it twisted, the enemy is conniving and very deceitful, so hes not going to leave without a fight. Do know  your emotions, feelings and mind will try to sike you out and if you’re not careful they’ll win (trust me I’m a working progress 🤔).

However, as sons and daughters of the most high, our Father has blessed us with a source so strong that it has to live within us to make moves. That secret source, also apart of the trinity, is known as the Holy Spirit.

Back Story

After His Resurrection, before ascending to Heaven, Jesus shared with His disciples and loved ones, what would come to pass and what they should look for after He left. One of those resources being the Holy Spirit. John 16 verses 5 through 15 explains it well of how the Holy Spirit operates:

“But now I am going away to the one who sent me, and not one of you is asking where I am going. Instead, you grieve because of what I’ve told you. But in fact, it is best for you that I go away, because if I don’t, the Advocate[a] won’t come. If I do go away, then I will send him to you.And when he comes, he will convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment. The world’s sin is that it refuses to believe in me. 10 Righteousness is available because I go to the Father, and you will see me no more. 11 Judgment will come because the ruler of this world has already been judged.
12 “There is so much more I want to tell you, but you can’t bear it now.13 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. 14 He will bring me glory by telling you whatever he receives from me. 15 All that belongs to the Father is mine; this is why I said, ‘The Spirit will tell you whatever he receives from me.’

John 16:5-15 NLT

You see, the Holy Spirit, also known as the advocate, spirit of truth, and helper is with you and always ready to move on your behalf. His job is to guide you, tell you what is to come and listen to you with opening ears and a loving heart. It just takes us to keep still for a moment and receive what He wants to share with us.

Final Thoughts

When was the last time you had an encounter with the Holy Spirit? Was it at church on Sunday or a few weeks ago or maybe never? God does see us and yes He knows our heart, but He’s also waiting for us to stop messing around and get to moving. The movement I’m speaking of is faith. Because you know, without actions, it is dead. So this week I challenge you to make room for our Father and allow His Holy Spirit to engulf within you. Leave comments below and share if you’re led to do so! He has much to reveal to you. It’s time.
