“But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.”  1 Corinthians 6:17.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Job 34, and 1 Corinthians 4-6.

God’s Spirit is within the believer.

He’s there but will I recognize it?  Will I be affected by it?

I must be in communion with the Holy Spirit within me.  “What do You want me to do?”

I believe that I must consistently make certain that the Holy Spirit has access to all of me.

How often I close doors.  How often I act independently of Him.

The Spirit is available to help, teach, and comfort me.  I need all of that!

My life must be run at such a pace that the reality of His presence comes to mind.  Another reference to Brother Lawrence’s “Practicing the Presence of God.”

How often does His presence come to mind during my day?  I love to pray for help and later thank Him for it but what about in between?  Have I lost consciousness of His Presence?

We are supposed to be on the same page.  Today’s chosen verse refers to our relationship as being “one with him.”  There won’t be stray maneuvers in such an arrangement.  We will be working together.

“Lord, forgive me for forgetting our oneness.  You are in me and I want You to control me.  I want Your Ways to be my ways.  Direct me.  Forgive me for not being mindful of You.  What else is there to be mindful of that had eternal value?  Nothing.  I love You, Father.”

Are we one with the Holy Spirit?

With God

“But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.”  1 Corinthians 6:17

(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading – Job 34 & 1 Corinthians 4-6)

How could I have an issue with this verse?

This verse gives a truth that I want to have running through my head.

I need to be in tight relationship with God.  I cannot invest more time in this world than He wants me to.

“Where my heart is, there also is my treasure.”

My relationship with God must be ongoing.  I need to be mindful of Him throughout each day.

Life is full of decisions.  If I am saturated with Him then my decision-making will reflect it.

I must read His Word faithfully.  On crowded days I must find time, realizing the magnitude of losing the spiritual edge in my relationship with Him.

His Words must be my words.  I need to persist with memorization of Scripture.

“Lord, I never want to lose my grip with You.  I want to be united with You so that Your Reflection is coming off of me.  I want folks to see You in me.  I cannot do this in my own strength.  Forgive me for trying.  I love You, Father.  I need You in everything I do.  Flood me with You.  Flood out the sludge that negatively effects our relationship, I beg!”
