Good Wednesday morning healing team!
If this is your first time to receive an email from me, Welcome to T Chiropractic and Acupuncture!
You guys are in for a treat to getting emails back to back!
As most of car drivers know, you don’t put diesel to gasoline engine vehicle and vice versa.
Gasoline car equipped to run with gasoline.
When I go to my office in the morning, I usually go to kitchen to drop off my lunch in a refrigerator and fill up my water bottle.
When I got there yesterday morning, usually kitchen floor is dry, but it was a bit different scenery.
Kitchen floor was covered by soapsuds all over the tiles. Someone had accidentally used dish soap in dishwasher.
Simply, Dishwasher is not equipped to run with dish soap, it is equipped to run with dishwasher detergent.
God told Cyrus in Isaiah 45:5
” I am the Lord; there is not other God.
I have equipped you for battle, though you don’t even know me,
What has God equipped you with?
Are you equipped with the Holy Spirit?
“The Spirit of God, who raises Jesus from the dead, lives in you.
Having equipped with the Holy Spirit, you are made to lead by the Holy Spirit instead of your own strength.
“Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit.”
“So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to the life and peace. “
“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God”
If you are child of God, you are equipped with the Holy Spirit.
You are made to run with the Holy Spirit.
“In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. 7 If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. 8 If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.
Which gifts are you equipped by God to run with?
If your car comes with A/C, don’t you love using it?
If God equipped you with certain gifts, I am sure that God love to see you using them!
Please know that I don’t understand God 100%. His thoughts are much wider and deeper than I can even comprehend.
This is what Paul said in Roman 8:26 about our weakness.
“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for….
I thought it was very interesting of him to give us an example of our weakness is we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. He did not say our weakness is not have enough faith in God, or not trusting God enough or not have enough confidence in God.
If you know a person well enough and if he starts doing or saying certain things, you KNOW where he going with it.
When I pray for trust in God and often time I feel like God may put me in the situations that require more trust in Him, then I go, God where are you doing with it? I prayed for trust in You not these situations may cause me hard to trust in You.
“……But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. 27 And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will.
But the Holy Spirit knows exactly what He needs to pray for me in harmony with God’s own will. So God’s will maybe to put me in those situations that I need to rely on God or truly understand that I don’t have any control and put all my trust in Him in all situations.
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”
It is hard when situations are tough and not going in your way and trying to put more trust in God by standing firm on the foundation of God.
But God knows it all. God causes theses things to happen so He will equip you with everything you need through Holy Spirit according to His purpose for you.
So you will be fully quipped with all the bells and whistles to do His purpose for you.
Have a great rest of the week and DO NOT USE dish soap in your dishwasher!
