Good Morning May 8

Jesus  speaking of the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Holy Trinity said, “The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” I am presently in the midst of a church conference with about twelve congregations of the eastern region of our church body. I planned the schedule and invited the speakers, but I didn’t choose an overall theme. Yet God, in His grace, brought a unity to the presentations from the brief morning devotion through the main speakers giving us a message that we all needed to hear. Don’t ever discount the Holy Spirit. When you look at your life, those seeming coincidences, those small opportunities, the sudden even that comes, even those difficult trials you face at times – God is working. You are a child of God. He loves you. He is working in your life in small and not so small ways. He desires to draw you more deeply into His love. Don’t ever discount the work of His Spirit. His wind is blowing in your life.
