The Lord’s almighty Presence and Power

“The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way.”  This wise statement from Proverbs might seem offensive on its face.  Yet it does not mean we stop using the mind our Father has blessed each of us with.  Rather, it means simply not to over think; not to overindulge in our own egos. God’s mighty power is what surrounds us, saves us and blesses us. “Speechless silence in is awesome Presence” (Tozer) establishes and restores us to that power.


Pentecost

This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday which, next to Easter, is the most important event in the life of the Church and of the followers of Christ. The incarnation of Christ is more than a story.  At Pentecost, through the Holy Spirit, His presence becomes personal to each of us ordinary people, regardless of the time or place in which we live. Each of us continues to “receive this gift of God dwelling within us to provide direction, courage, comfort, hope, companionship, and peace.” It is a power that gives us the strength to do far more than we can ever possibly imagine.
