I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; and your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.

Joel 3: 28

 

The Lord does not want us to be in the dark. He desires for all people to understand the world that we live in, the life that we are living, and the future that He is calling us to pursue. Therefore, God communicates clearly, thoroughly, and continually with us. Sometimes He does this in ways that are so subtle that His voice can be like the whisper of a hummingbird’s wings, and at other times, He shouts with the roar of a fighter jet in a maximum power take off. God’s point is that He wants us to hear, and He also wants us to be continually watching and listening.

 

All of the history of the world is interlaced with God’s interaction and involvement with people. And all of it leads me to see the Lord’s goodness, love, grace, mercy, compassion, and faithfulness as they are expressed in and through the lives of those people. As I look through God’s Word, I am continually reminded that His greatest desire is for me and for everyone to know and to understand Him. So, He reveals Himself to us, and He wants us to share that revelation and the blessed freedom that it brings with others on an ongoing basis.

 

As we go through this day, let’s be continually aware of the way that God’s Spirit is covering us like the mist of a soft and refreshing Spring rain, surrounding us like a breeze off the ocean on a summer afternoon, and blanketing our world like that feather-light fall of dry, powdery snow on a perfect Winter’s morning. Christ’s Spirit goes with us everywhere and is in everything that we do so that we can be covered by His protection and love and be filled with His truth and understanding. Thus, the Spirit leads us to see God’s view of the future and to know that it is good.
