Never Alone


And now for something a little different.  The Sci-Fi channel recently featured a “made for television” movie called Sharknado.  The premise is this: global warming causes a giant tornado to erupt over the Pacific Ocean, sucking thousands of large sharks into its funnel and depositing them all over the California coast.  Not only do the homeowners have to deal with flooding, but they must also battle great whites in their living rooms.  Now THAT’S a disaster.
The powerful winds of natural disasters are often referred to as “acts of God” by insurance companies and newscasters.  Neither the birth of children or beautiful vistas are acts of God, but the damage associated with hurricanes and tornados is blamed on deity.
The Old Testament Hebrew word picture for the Holy Spirit is “ruach;” the wind or breath of God.  God’s Spirit is portrayed by the prophet Ezekiel as a Wind, blowing the dust out of our souls and breathing new life into us.  Reviving weary and discouraged people.  A wind of healing and Power.  Raising us up to new life.  A Wind of Holy Presence.
“. . . then The Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.”  He can do that because “In Him (Jesus) was life, and the life was the light of men.”  (Genesis 2:7; John 1:4)

How special are we?  God created us in His image and endued us with life by His very own breath.
What drew me to Him at first draws me still.  The gentle Wind of His presence blowing forgiveness, new direction, life purpose, and the courage to accept myself and my circumstances.  It’s enough just to be with Him.
Slow down and listen to His Spirit “that times of refreshing may come from the presence of The Lord.”  (Acts 3:20)
Never alone,
