Winsome Wednesday.... Power Through the Spirit

To return to Tracy's blog,   click  here!
I am so thankful for the Lord's leading, His teaching, his  provision, His perfect timing...  I am learning so much  lately about his wonderful Spirit...  living in us....  how very  empowering He is,  yet,  such a gentleman,,,  He doesn't force His will on us,   but  when we  need Him,  He doesn't fail to show up with the answer or help we need at the  perfect moment of our need....  never  early,   never late.
I am also learning how  easily He is  offended by our sin,  our attitude,  our   soulful  actions   when we  choose wrongly to do what feels good to us,  even when we  doubt it pleases God...  Like the dove  that descended on our  Lord.... the dove remained on  Him throughout  the rest of  Jesus' life because  Jesus never    did one thing to  send  Him  fleeting,,,  yet,   by our own wills  we  so often    grieve the spirit  by our sin, our lack of forgiveness,  bitterness, anger,  tongue, lack of faith, and  then we ask  why  we are not feeling the presence of the Lord.... Oh, to  trust and love God enough to   live  a life that  reflects  the light of the world, our   savior, Jesus Christ...to  choose to   walk lightly in the  glory of  the Father,  and  put our desire for  His presence  over   any other   worldly desire  we may  have!  To  realize just how precious the dove is to us, yet how  powerful   it's  affects  are on our lives!
After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and settling on him.
Matthew 3:16
