To witness the Spirit of God burning away the chafe in life and replacing it with joy and spiritual wisdom is a beauty to behold. Especially when it is my beautiful daughter. I praise God for His love and mercy. I love you Anna ! Love, Dad (T. F. Lloyd)
Above was a comment from my spiritual birthday post from yesterday. WOW! The Spirit is moving, moving, moving…..
The Holy Spirit was found in the burning bush of Moses, the burning sacrifices of God’s people in the Old Testament, and now, today, the Holy Spirit cleanses us and we are made new–filled with joy and spiritual wisdom. We place our “chafe” all the things that keep us from joy and wisdom on the altar and claim that Jesus took care of these things–IT IS FINISHED!
For sure the enemy and the world will remind us, but God has said, “It is finished!”
Though the fig tree does not bud
and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
and no cattle in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.
The Sovereign Lord is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to tread on the heights.
