He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son (1 John 5:10).
Boy, I’d hate to be the one who called God a liar! I thank God daily that I have the Holy Spirit living in me. I have a living witness of the living God filling me completely. I am wall to wall Holy Ghost, and He points me to Jesus all the time. I have a great relationship with Jesus because of the witness of the Holy Spirit.
One of the things I try to do as much as possible, as much as other things are not demanding my time, is to practice His Presence. I get myself still. A dove is a flighty bird, nervous; it will take off at the slightest off-movement, and since that is the symbol of the Holy Spirit, I take that measure of Him quite seriously. I get my body still; I calm my emotions and my mind as best I can, and then I look for Him. He will manifest Himself as Jesus.
I can do this anywhere. I don’t have to be in my bedroom with no one else in the house. I am on the inside of me, where the Holy Spirit lives, and I try to act like the most courteous guest I can be. I am His house now, not mine, and I enjoy His witness. The Holy Spirit can be a talker if He is given that freedom. Sometimes I like to stand in the middle of the Trinity (since they all have a part in this house) and experience the love they have for one another, and then experience the love they have for me. That’s why they have gone to such extravagant means to win us back. They love us so much!
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
