Thanksliving-Part 8

January 30, 2015

 

My friend, Thanksliving involves God in our whole being, spirit, soul, and body. I believe one of the reasons the level of love for God is low is because people do not know the work of the Holy Spirit of God and how He works from our spirit into our soul which is where our mind, our will, and our emotions are, and even through our bodies. So therefore, they are craving and trying to get all kinds of substitutes instead of saying, “I don’t need anything but Jesus.” Amen! To think any other way is to have a low view of who God is. Thanking God involves our whole being, spirit, soul, and body. 

There is a level of praising and a level of praying that can’t be expressed in words. There is something that can happen, my friend, when we choose to be grateful, thankful, positive, counting our blessings, and not talking negatively. When we see who this God is and when we reflect on Him something happens within us that we can’t necessarily utter, but the Holy Spirit speaks in and through our spirit in words unutterable. You say, “Do you feel these things?” Yes, you feel these things. It is the Spirit-filled life. It is a Thanksliving life.
