And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)
Good morning! I’m feeling great today, and I hope you are, too! We went to our small group from church last night for a dinner party. If you are feeling letdown after the holidays, plan a social gathering where everyone brings food. It was a fun time!
We spoke yesterday about the Holy Spirit intervening for us. The Spirit prays according to the mind of God, and the Father answers by bringing into our lives and those we pray for the experiences that we and they need. God creates circumstances, bringing us into places, with the right people, into an environment that is perfect for the Holy Spirit to intercede and answer our prayers. If we don’t pray or listen, then we and those we pray for will miss the opportunity. When we listen to the nudges that the Holy Spirit gives us, we will step into an incredible experiences of glory. The idea is not that we do work for God, but that we are so loyal to him that He does His work through us. He calls us to love him with all of our heart. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your mind and all your soul and all your strength. This is the first and greatest commandment.” (Matthew 22:37-38)
