I am always learning, thank the Lord! He never fails me! He wants to spend time with me.
An excellent book to read, and it's free at this website: Good Morning Holy Spirit by Benny Hinn If you need something to read it on try Kindle or iBooks. Learn to know the person of the Holy Spirit. This book was more confirmation to me since He drew me to Himself in 1988 when I was crumbling, yet it did give me some new insight and since this I got a clue, too!
A couple of days ago we had a flat tire in my car. This was right at a time when we were lower in funds. First, one might think that something is wrong because He has not made provision for my tire and there are all of these things that I need to be doing. But, for some reason I didn't see it that way. I had a peace about it. I also was on the 7th day of a lingering cold with an awful sounding cough. This made me think that maybe I was supposed to slow down, lay low, and let God's healing catch up with me. After talking to my husband and figuring out that on the next payday I could get a new tire and the car wash was close by (that it needed so badly) so I would also be able to get my car cleaned up, I felt fully satisfied. As I cancelled nearly everything I was in an amazing state of peace!
After a couple of days at home, TV off, worship music on, getting things done but moving slowly and resting in His peace I awoke this morning to waging warfare against Satan, telling him where he could go (back to hell where he belongs in Jesus' name) and beginning to feel much better physically, with a wonderful "knowing" in my heart. He just wants to spend time with me. How many of us miss out on so many blessings because we won't just be still and know that He is God?
*2 Corinthians 11:2a "For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy."
He had moved me earlier this year to giving away most of my artwork amd cleaning out our house, so I could spend time learning to rest in Him and finding more of His peace and I'd taken His wisdom that I was learning to move back out into life, ministry, and more of this world and ran with it like a chicken with its head cut off! Wanting more is good if it moves you to prayer and keeps you wanting more of Him but slow down and:
AND there's that word Strength again. I'm learning through my writing once again. Waiting on Him will give us strength? Hallelujah! There's another one for my "His Strength" art journal!
The song that I awoke to going through my head was My Redeemer Lives as sung by Nicole C. Mullen
Sometimes we just need to slow down:
Psalm 46:10a "Be still, and know that I am God;" Listen to the words...great video, too!
An old faithful song that the Holy Spirit has used so prophetically in my life over the years has kept coming to mind, also, and it fits:
