God blesses us all the time.
We are just dumb and can’t see it.
We look the wrong way.
We think our blessings are CIRCUMSTANCES.
We refer to good things as luck.
We are not “lucky” …we are BLESSED.
He blesses us. He does it ALL THE TIME.
We had a guest preacher today who talked about living in the spirit. The spirit cannot be controlled, cannot be seen and we don’t know where it comes from or goes. We must be guided by it. We cannot go the way we think and then consult our God. We must constantly listen to HIM. ((The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit. -JOHN 3:8))
He also had so many examples of how God protects and provides for us. We just have to rely on Him. I have many stories that are so similar to the ones he told us today. I talk about them all the time to family, friends, students and basically anyone who will listen. I’m going to do my best to share a few this week with this blog.
BLESSINGS ARE BLESSINGS and we view them as such.
In that same chapter of John–Jesus is talking to Nicodemus about how we must be BORN AGAIN. We MUST be born of The Spirit.
Once we are born again …the blessings we called circumstances and luck before should never be referred to in that way. They are true blessings from God. They always were—IT’S ALL ABOUT HOW YOU LOOK AT IT. Now, we have the spirit who guides us. Before we were without a true direction even though we may of thought we had it all together. You can’t TRULY have it “all together” without believing, being born again and allowing the spirit to guide you. We can live our life to the fullest when we allow those things to happen… because God did that for us!
…and HE DOES IT ALL THE TIME!
