First and foremost, it is Christ within us, and not we ourselves, for no one is good but God! We have all met specific people throughout our lives that not even our children have been blessed to meet. However, whenever the Holy Spirit reminds you what you have learned from them, it begins to filter into their lives as well. Likewise, the harsher things you may have learned, as your King Shepherd led you into dealing with the issues and accepting His healing from them, they have also become active safeguards into not only your children’s lives, but also into other people’s lives as He has led you to share your testimonies (your stories) with them. Amazingly, similar to how our parents, or guardians, have raised us in reminding us to always learn from our mistakes, the Holy Spirit uses that, instructs us in it and allows us to also learn from other people’s mistakes as well. Interacting with each other is vital in the Kingdom of God, for our Abba is a God of relationships. In all of His creation, we can see the relation one thing has with another, where one is even dependent upon another, teaching us that True dependency on God actually allows us to be truly independent from this world, and the darkness within it. The Holy Spirit may remind you of the physical and spiritual importance of the smile you may have received from a person you may not have even known, nor ever saw again, which happened at just the right time during a harsh day. The smile may not have only warmed your heart and healed the day, but it also may have ignited within you a chain reaction to go within more, so that you may clearly see King Jesus continuously smiling at you and to receive His healing peace throughout each moment of the day; the stranger holding open the door for you, well that highlights the respect we should have for one another, and the respect Abba has for us in not allowing things to “just happen,” but instead, calls us to make the move in uniting with Him and worshipping Him in Spirit and in Truth; the brightness shining from someone’s eyes as you know their body is racked with severe pain, your focus is turned to their mouth speaking of His sheltering embrace easing the hurt, which manifests our King to you in a new way; the fun loving closeness you had with another during your high school days reminds you of Abba’s fun loving closeness He wants to have with you every day; your grandmother or grandfather, who abided in Truth, their words may play over and over in your mind reminding you of an encouraging time spent with them, which is now used by the Holy Spirit to encourage you in continuing to allow His Truth to effortlessly flow from your lips despite what discouragements surround you in the flesh; the crazy love of an aunt (yes, just like you Debbie, my sons’ wacky, loving aunt) reminds you of the extraordinary fun King Jesus wants to shepherd into your life every day with Him; the friend that encourages you to complete a specific task is uniting with you in demolishing procrastination and building anticipation within your physical life as the Holy Spirit encourages you to step forward in Faith with King Jesus; the piece of information, or even the return phone call you were expecting to receive hours, to even days ago, may be disheartening in the flesh, but it has also become a Warrior Training exercise in patience, specifically strengthening you to cling tighter to King Jesus within and be enveloped by His Peace while you simply smile and allow your spirit to remind you that your Abba is the Creator of ALL things, and all is well within HisHand. Your smile, your words, the brush of your presence with another person is extraordinary and miraculous because the Holy Spirit reminds us of Psalm 139:13-17 ‘For Thou hast possessed my reins; Thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are Thy works, and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from Thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in Thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!’ You answering a call from a loved one, rushing to the aid of a friend or stranger, or simply smiling and addressing someone else may just be the seed needed for King Jesus to continue nourishing their branches so they may be abundant with fruit, for He is the vine and we are His branches. And timing? What perfect timing in Abba, for you were created for this current time at HisHand as His Holy Word in Esther 4:13-14 reminds us, ‘Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king’s house, more than all the Jews. For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the Kingdom for such a time as this?’ Praise King Jesus, for we are currently in existence for God’s glory: we are His and He is ours for an eternity!
