The Holy Spirit Of

Spirituality Ed and I are sitting at the kitchen table and one of the twins came in and was getting a little down. Ed: A little whiny and moany.Lisa: Yes. It was Landra, a little moany and whiny. She was saying, Mom, Laurie and Olivia have gone to the playhouse and they have taken everything out there to build a store and they are just messing it up and its going to be a mess and can you believe it?Already, earlier in the morning, she had had a little moan zone time. So, Ed and I were just going over this and I thought, Okay, Holy Spirit, appropriate words. I looked at Landra and the first thought would be, Landra, get over it. Dad and I are working. That would be my natural inclination.Ed: Sometimes we have those natural moments.Lisa: Yes, we do. You can ask any one of our children and they will tell you that. But I said, Landra, I know that it is difficult sometimes when there are three. You and Laurie are sharing a friend and that is sometimes difficult. But arent you excited that we had a friend spend the night last night. And Landra, look around outside at the weather and how beautiful it is. Its not raining like it was suppose to be. You can go back and forth to the playhouse. I started naming all these different things and said, Landra, dont you think you have a lot to be thankful for?She goes, Yeah.Her moaning disappeared. There could have been another scenario there, and we would have dealt with it. But she just picked herself up, went outside and had a great time. Ed: There is an upside to intuition. Proverbs 16:21 says, The wise in heart are called discerning and pleasant words promote instruction. Then Job 32:8, But it is the spirit in a man (the Holy Spirit), the breath of the Almighty, that gives him (or her) understanding. Its amazing. Women have a greater sense of spiritual needs, and also of relational needs as well, with this intuition.Jesus said in Matthew 10:16, one of my favorite Scriptures, he said, Be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. Lisa: In other words, we need to be very cautious and smart as we deal with feelings and emotions.Ed: Feelings can be fickle and freaky and they can go up and down. When we have these feelings, and this intuition, we need to go through a checklist. Because we can get into trouble when we say, I feel this way. My emotions are telling me that. Our feelings must always, if they are from the Holy Spirit of God, be within the context of Gods will. Our feelings must always be within the context, guidelines and guardrails of Gods will. < href="">Ed Young Church About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
