Wow! The Holy Spirit of Jehovah God is awesome! For about 3 years or so now, I’ve sought His leading, guidance, reprimands, refiner’s fire, friendship, mentoring, training, and so much more. He never ceases to amaze me!!! This morning, He laid the word “reputation” on my heart and, because I am still a work in process, my mind immediately went to thinking ”Yayyyyyyyyyyy, God is finally ready to correct, fix, improve, etc. my reputation!” I can admit that there was a high level of glee in me as I assumed that this was the reason for The Comforter’s prompting this morning. Well, not so. No, it was to be another lesson in humility…but not just your common humbleness…this one is on a much higher level. This humility, when practiced faithfully, leads to inner peace and a closer walk with Elohim. Full disclosure? It comes at a cost but the benefits are worthy of the pain…
So, as I do frequently, I began studying The Word(Bible), the Internet, and my Christian apps for references of Jehovah God fixing the reputations of His children. But, the passages and blogs and commentaries I kept finding did not match what I had in mind. Finally, I landed on the one that The Holy Spirit had designed just for me!😊 Guess what? It focused on how to overcome shame and a ruined reputation by repenting, soul searching, praying, and love. What??? Yep!
Truthfully, I didn’t want to keep reading it but I could not stop. I read the whole thing with tears streaming down my face and, when I was done, I repented, I did some soul searching, I prayed, and I made a resolve to love in spite of any and everything. Please understand that I am only able to do this daily by The Holy Spirit’s power…without Him, without Jehovah God, I can do nothing.
This Christian walk that we are on is so much more about us and Jehovah God than it is about us and the world. Yes, we are to be salt and light to the world. But we can only be those things, authentically, when our walk with Jehovah God is on point!!! I’m adding a link to the blog below for you…just in case The Holy Spirit designed it for you as well.😊🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
