Pick Me Up

Have you ever been accused of being ‘too spiritual’? Or told that ‘you talk about God too much’? I have, as have many of you. I can understand these statements if I were simply religious minded, more about keeping the letter of the law than true relationship with Jesus. Or if my goal was to point out what people do ‘wrong’ rather than pointing out what Jesus did right.

But while I’m in the school of the Holy Spirit and He’s always showing me things, I get excited and want to share. I get that I can’t share everything with everybody, so I now share with those closest to me or post it on Facebook for those fellow treasure hunters who desire to go deeper. We need each other!

As I read Romans 8:5-6 TPT, Paul explained this very clearly. “Those who are motivated by the flesh only pursue what benefits themselves. But those who live by the impulses of the Holy Spirit are motivated to pursue spiritual realities. For the mind-set of the flesh is death, but the mind-set controlled by the Spirit finds life and peace.”

I don’t know about you, but the ‘life and peace’ offered is what I need! The saying; ‘You’re so heavenly minded, you’re no earthly good,’ is a load of horse pucky. You are what you eat! What you feed on will lead you toward God or away from Him. I’m pretty sure that the more Paul pursued God, the fewer people related to what he had to say.

Verses 18-19, Paul applies the frosting on the cake by saying, “I am convinced that any suffering we endure is less than nothing compared to the magnitude of glory that is about to be unveiled within us. The entire universe is standing on tiptoe, yearning to see the unveiling of God’s glorious sons and daughters!”

Pick me! Pick me, Father! Unveil Your glory in me! I want a front row seat in class. No distractions as I read and listen, my eyes glued on You as You lead me into all truth. My life is not my own, for the price You paid was for all of me, not a part of me. Whatever that looks like, I’m learning to yield. I will listen to Your Spirit within me and put my flesh on the cross so that You may be glorified in me. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
