SPRING FORTH NOW - DAILY MEDITATION
Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
Discovering who we are as it relates to God provides us the necessary power, motivation to achieve that which appears impossible yet promised by God. In our creation, God blew into us His Spirit, the essence of who He is and as a direct result we became living soul, we were alive, made real His Word and intent. It is when we discover and/or rediscover, God’s intent, vision for our lives; who we are in relation to God that gives us the incentive, power to walk in the realization of God’s promises. As the eunuch struggled with the Word of God, we too must struggle with God’s Word for our lives and be open, sensitive to His voice, move, and power that provides us the necessary instruction, leading and guiding us into being immersed in His will, way, and promises for our lives. Do not allow the circumstances of your present life or even the difficulties of life contain you to what is, struggle through by your reflection on God and your relationship to God and what it is God is speaking to you in your circumstances. Let God speak and deliver you to an understanding and action that not only honors, glorifies God, but also moves you into the pathway of life for you and there you will discover and/or rediscover whom God has called you to be. As you connect, be intimate with the the essence of God in you, you discover and/or rediscover your value and are confident enough to burst through the containments of your life, springing forth in the life-giving promises of God. Catch The Wind of God’s Spirit and flow, be fully immersed in who God is and who God has called, intended you to be and become and receive everything God has promised for your life, it is your Power Of Witness, go and be who He has declared you to be and receive your life and life more abundantly!
