Finding it simple.

The weird thing about life is that, as confusing and complex as it so often seems to be, it’s also unbelievably simple.

There are thousands of opportunities each day for you to disobey God and get involved in stuff you actually know will mess you up, and yet the psalmist offers us peace and a practical way forward amidst all that noise: ‘How can a young person stay pure? By obeying Your word.’ (Psalm 119:9 http://bit.ly/2urRcMc)

If today gets hectic and you’re drawn towards something toxic, ask the Holy Spirit to highlight God’s word over that situation. What do you know to be true? Be brave to live it. Solomon tells us in Proverbs 9:10, ‘Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment.’ http://bit.ly/2xsLgPE

Reflecting

Walking into the last weekend of 2019, it’s a great opportunity to reflect on what’s been and what’s to come.

How was your year?
What are your highlights and how did you grow as a person?
What are you looking forward to in 2020?
How are you planning to grow your faith in 2020?

My prayer for you is Romans 15:13 – I pray that you are filled with joy and hope as you walk into the promises of the new year, knowing that you can trust the Holy Spirit to walk alongside you every step of the way.

Trust God with your 2020!

Spiderman – Far away from home

In this Spiderman sequel, we enter a world where Peter Parker is without Tony Stark; Spiderman without his Ironman. You feel all the feels following Avengers End Game.

This got me thinking about how the disciples must have felt after Jesus died, and then again when He ascended into the clouds back to Heaven.

Read Luke 23:44-49 (http://bit.ly/2pLqPPp) and Mark 16:19 (http://bit.ly/33n1VEo)

And just as Tony had a surprise for Peter, which we see towards the end of the movie – Jesus left His disciples (and especially us) with an even greater gift – The Holy Spirit!

Read Acts 1:3-5 (http://bit.ly/34yFKuZ)

Holy Spirit

John 16:5-15 (http://bit.ly/2Plmo8K)

Friend who sticks closer than a brother.
Confidant.
Divine teacher.
Lover of your soul.
Wonderful counselor.
Your blessed assurance.

He is the Holy Spirit. He is the one who reveals God’s truth. He’s the one who enables us to use our gifts. He has a relationship with all of us in an intimately personal way. What a beautiful truth to know that we’re never alone because the Holy Spirit will be given to all who ask for Him. It’s Jesus restoring and healing what is broken but also leaving us with a seal of his promises.
