Holy Spirit.

Tom's Journal.

This is so true and so sad. Not only that but seeking our Lord through prayer and the big mistake is in prayer speaking all the time and not listening and asking what the Father would have you pray about and then being still until He answers.
Everybody is in such a hurry they just don't take time to here from God. Prayer is like a shopping list of what God can do for them.

(Col 3:2) Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

What Has The Holy Spirit Revealed?

Q. Concerning 1 Corinthians 2:9-10:
However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him”— but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit.”

I had always thought when I read verse 9 that I could apply this to a future time after we are joined with God in Heaven. I can believe that what the Lord has in store for His children we could not possibly have any conception of while we are still here on Earth. What I don’t understand is verse 10, “but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit.” What is it that God has revealed to us by His Spirit?
A. What I think the passage is saying is that although in our natural minds we couldn’t begin to imagine how wonderful the next life will be, the Scriptures have given us enough of a glimpse to make it attractive to us. Even without knowing any of the details concerning our new life, the more we study and think about it the more urgent our desire to be there becomes. This is the Holy Spirit revealing it to us. Nominal Christians have simply not taken the few minutes of study time the Holy Spirit needs to arouse this desire in them, and that’s why they cling to their secular world view.

OH that is an excellent answer and I agree totally! Over the past 5 or so years, I have been looking more and more toward heaven and longing to be there! Even though I don't know what it will be like other than how it is described in the Bible, I know I'd rather be there than here ~ thank you Tom! Hope you and Sharon have a beautiful and restful day tomorrow, and hope she is feeling OK. God Bless you both!

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose

Keep her son who is in a hot spot in Afghanistan in my prayers. He is in Kanduz. He also has a dog who loves him like the dog in the video: I believe his name
is Daniel. Please prayer with me for his safety, his health, his friends, his family, and his safe
return home. Thanks.
