A Joyful but Surprising Thought
The Holy Spirit stays with us continually, and He invites us to live with an awareness of His presence. Margaret Therkelsen in her book Realizing the Presence of the Holy Spirit, tells that years ago after reading in Revelation 7 of the praise in heaven, she entered into a time of deep worship. She was filled with praise and humbled herself as she saw Jesus as the victorious, risen, and triumphant Lord of lords.
The thought that we are to become more aware of the Holy Spirit within us has been a joyful thought to me.
"Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you...O Great and powerful God, whose name is the LORD Almighty, great are your purposes and mighty are your deeds" (Jeremiah 32:17-19).
