Submitted to His Spirit – Helen Paris

It is certainly a journey of trusting God for me. Over the last few months I have experienced the Lord addressing me on a confidence, maybe I could actually call it a trust in the flesh – my flesh – my health.

Yes, my being is a temple for the Holy Spirit to dwell in – yes, I must respect and nurture the body my spirit abides in – but not TRUST IN THAT BODY, that it will perform exactly as I am expecting it to, that it won’t fail me in anyway because I am believing for the health that the scriptures promise.

But, it hasn’t worked out that way – the flesh did fail!!

I was shocked at my body’s betrayal – that’s how I viewed it. Wonderfully, I would say, miraculously, the Lord rescued me, even be it in the eleventh hour. Praise God.

I am very thankful and humbled before the Lord for His mercy and intervention; again a prop has been knocked away.

The Holy Spirit is saying to me that in every aspect of my life, both spiritually and physically, I must learn to be totally submitted to His Spirit.

 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts’
neither are your ways, My ways, declares the Lord,
as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Isaiah 55:8-9

 May our God continue to bless you in all you do for Him.
