THE WICK OF A CANDLE FIRES UP
Have you noticed how the wick of a candle fires up when it ignites? I know you have because you hold the match there long enough for it to happen. I believe the Holy Spirit in us does the same when we go to the Word of God. He ignites a revolution of love from within. We know it’s happened to us when we have the joy of the Lord in our heart and mind despite difficulty. It’s a rather odd experience is it not?
Currently, I am in an impossible situation – make that plural – impossible situations. I want to cry, but the Holy Spirit keeps confirming for me through God’s Word that He’s got it covered. I am to go to God in His Word and through prayer, do as He directs and trust Him for the outcome, which is totally out of my control anyway. Still, I feel the labor pains of my soul manifested in this body of mine - longing for God to drastically revolutionize me and my surroundings.
“Come Father, God! May Your will be done. May Your Hand be upon me. May all who know me say, ‘Surely, Surely, God is with her!’”
