My friend always used to say to me “just be happy”. Now the holy spirit is saying this to me as part of me just wants to focus on current dissapointment, because really what is there to be unhappy about? If the holy spirit says “be happy” than I better listen. He says to me “you have good things coming your way”. It is a good practice to be happy and content no matter what the circumstance, because waiting to be happy until certain expectations are met is of the devil. It is a form of idol worship because right here and now we have God who could and should be the source of our satisfaction. To say we do not have enough right now is to say that he is not enough. He wants to be the source of our satisfaction. He has already given us a glorious inheritance. It is our spiritual enemy that would want us to be dissatisfied. The only thing that should cause me dissatisfaction right now is if I have not felt God enough today, or if I have not sought him enough today, or I haven’t done enough for his kingdom. Actually that does make me a little discontent because I thought to myself earlier how I have the power of eternity at my finger tips but I’ve grown lazy in my prayers. So many more people could be getting freedom if I had prayed more. We cannot neglect our work. Other than being dissatisfied with sin, or with evil, or with complacency we have nothing else to be unhappy about. If we want something we should ask God and look forward to his answer or even better yet, listen for his answer and be satisfied with it no matter what it is. Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and then the rest will be added unto you. Amen. Lord help me hunger for nothing but your will and not be satisfied until I am 100 percent in the center of it always. Grant me first the hunger, and then the satisfaction of being where you are. Intimacy father is what we need.

Through life's challenges I have learned that Jesus really is the only one who can truly satisfy. Through his grace I have already achieved so much, and wish to include you all in my journey as I continue to press on towards the mark to which I was called. I hope that you can identify and share in my successes and even my failures. It is also my hope that you will see what a day in the life of a spirit filled believer looks like up close and personal. May you be blessed as I am blessed, and may you share in my anointed grace. God bless you as you read. View all posts by sweetgentlespirit
