Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Acts 16:11-15 & John 15: 26 – 16:4
If I am not on the same frequency of love as Jesus, my spiritual ears need tuning up by, and tuning in to, the Holy Spirit of God. Then the question I ask of a new possibility that comes my way is not What`s in it for me? or What will it give me? Rather, the question becomes Does this draw me further into the knowledge and love of God? Lydia, the woman who sold purple cloth, was attuned to the Holy Spirit, and so recognized the good news that Saints Paul and Luke were proclaiming. This recognition led her to offer lodgings to these men of God. What a blessed evening that must have been! Am I so tuned into the frequency of God to immediately recognize the guidance of the Holy Spirit, who Advocates for Father God and his Son? Christ Jesus, attune me to your Advocate, your Holy Spirit, to guide me.
The Lord takes delight in his people. (Psalm 149)
The soul is in God and God in the soul, just as the fish is in the sea and the sea in the fish.
