May your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless . . . —1 Thessalonians 5:23

“Your whole spirit . . . .” The great, mysterious work of the Holy Spirit is in the deep recesses of our being which we cannot reach. Read Psalm 139 . The psalmist implies— “O Lord, You are the God of the early mornings, the God of the late nights, the God of the mountain peaks, and the God of the sea. But, my God, my soul has horizons further away than those of early mornings, deeper darkness than the nights of earth, higher peaks than any mountain peaks, greater depths than any sea in nature. You who are the God of all these, be my God. I cannot reach to the heights or to the depths; there are motives I cannot discover, dreams I cannot realize. My God, search me.”Do we believe that God can fortify and protect our thought processes far beyond where we can go? “. . . the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7). If this verse means cleansing only on our conscious level, may God have mercy on us. The man who has been dulled by sin will say that he is not even conscious of it. But the cleansing from sin we experience will reach to the heights and depths of our spirit if we will “walk in the light as He is in the light” (1 John 1:7). The same Spirit that fed the life of Jesus Christ will feed the life of our spirit. It is only when we are protected by God with the miraculous sacredness of the Holy Spirit that our spirit, soul, and body can be preserved in pure uprightness until the coming of Jesus-no longer condemned in God’s sight.We should more frequently allow our minds to meditate on these great, massive truths of God.

Lord, till you are my one desire, please keep making me.  Till you are my one true love, please keep making me.  I know I get distracted, confused and chase my own ways and means. But Lord I am thankful that You keep bringing me to the one place that I want to be; in your arms.

And God says…”I will never leave you nor forsake you.  You are mine. I know the plans I have for you, for a good and wonderful future.  Trust in Me with all your heart, know that if I gave you my only Son, I will give you all that you need for an abundant life.  Seek first the kingdom of God; which is Jesus and you will come to realize that all you need for any and every circumstance has already been given you.  Rest, and trust in Me, and let me make you in the image of My Son.”
