Dead or alive, my love will reach you

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

Where can you go to get away from my love? I know you don’t want to but ponder with me for a moment. Let’s explore how far my love can reach and see where you might go such that you’d be untouchable. 

In reality, my love is impossible to outrun. Dead or alive, my love will reach you. The angels and demons have power but they won’t stop my love. I’m with you in this moment and in the moments to come and I carry my love with me so nothing today or in the days ahead will keep me from loving you.

There is no governmental office on earth with the power and authority to stop me from loving you and whether you climb to the highest mountain or swim down to the depths of the oceans, there too will my love go with you.

I am the Creator of all things. Everything you see, hear, smell, touch or taste, I have ultimate authority over so in all things, my love is with you. It is simply impossible to escape my love, no matter how hard one might try.

Now consider this … if you can’t escape the reach of my love, what about those people you love who don’t yet let me love them. Do you think their “not letting me” is going to stop me or might I be creative enough to keep on loving them through you?

My love will not give up or give in. I am relentless in my pursuit of the ones I love and I’m a gentleman. I woo gently, never coerce. I meet you where you’re at and I am playing the long game. You think you’ve been practicing patience recently but you have nothing on me! I am love and love wins.

Because there’s adventure even in the seemingly mundane when you do life with God – and it’s so much more powerful when you journey in community!

Live like you’re free!

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

I hear you and yes, I really am that brilliant! Those moments in days when you find yourself simply in awe of me? Linger there for a moment, enjoy the feeling, let me help you live from that place. Not because I have a massive ego that needs stroking but because when you live from my brilliance, fear cannot touch you.

Courage is not the opposite of fear, love is the opposite of fear, and I am love. When you live from my brilliance, when you live and move and operate with an understanding and appreciation of who I am, fear must flee and you are a force to be reckoned with.

That’s what I want for you. Not an arogant self-confidence but a certainty and groundedness that comes from knowing who you are and Whose you are. And if I am for you, who or what can come against you?

Even when you find yourself with people who are better qualified or better connected than you are, you don’t need to be afraid because I am with you. No-one is better qualified or connected than I am and you’re in me so consider yourself more than covered!

Speak as I invite you to speak. Take action as I invite you to take action. Keep your mouth shut when I tell you there’s nothing to say. When you move through your day like that, you’re moving as Jesus moved. He did and spoke everything He saw and heard from Dad.

If the Saviour of the world, the promised Messiah, was comfortable being dependant on another, why is it so difficult for you? Yes, because of Adam and Eve but their actions are undone in Jesus so you don’t need to live from a place of battle. You’re not at war against yourself, no need to rail against your fleshy nature. You are a new creation. Embrace the truth and live like you’re free!

Reverse the curse and get back to life with me

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

What have I promised you? Do you believe that if I’ve said it, it will be so, no matter what? This isn’t about blind faith or naive optimism. This is about taking me at my word. All my promises are yes and amen and your evidence is Jesus.

Yes really because in Jesus I already did the hardest thing. What could be more difficult than giving up your own child for the sake of another? And not just any “other” but an “other” who doesn’t yet know you or like you, let alone love you and want to do life with you.

That’s what we, Trinity, three in one, signed up for when we planned salvation in eternity past. We always knew we’d be playing the long game, that it would take time and patience and gentle wooing to see that particular promise through to its final resolution.

It’s safe to say then that I know more than just a little bit about unfulfilled promises and not yet met expectations. I ask you to be patient and to take me at my word but I’m not asking you to do anything that I haven’t first done myself!

I know it’s not always easy and I have the advantage of seeing the full picture but you can trust me and if I have said it, it will be so. It all comes back to faith and your ability, me-helping you, to step into each new day embracing the adventure ahead of you.

You really don’t have to play on your own. I want to help you, explore life with you, it’s what you were born for, how you were created to best function, so why strive for independence? It’s time to reverse the curse of the garden and get back to life with me.

Do you believe that I am good?

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

Do you believe that I am good all the time? That in me is no darkness at all? What about those times when you hear or see something of me that seems strange or unloving? Or those times when you pray and pray and still no breakthrough or miracle is seen? Are there exceptions to my goodness?

I am good, all the time. In me there is no darkness at all, of that you can be certain. I am light and light drives out the darkness! Those times when things feel uncertain or dark, ask me to show you where I am in that moment, that situation. I’m not hiding myself from you. Sometimes you simply need me to open your eyes so you can see things from a new perspective.

If you ever find yourself doubting my goodness, ask me to show you what’s really going on. Ask me the lies you’ve been believing because any whisper that I’m not good is a lie from the enemy sent to draw you away from me.

Beat the enemy at his own game and instead of pulling away, let uncertainty draw you in closer.  Explore the mysteries of life with me and expect to be surprised and delighted. I love delighting you, remember? I’m not going to always give you the answer you want or even the answer you expect but when you reach out to me I will answer you.

Hearing my answer from a position of love and an understanding of my goodness, trusting that I’ve got you and will never let you down, will help you hear those answers that are sometimes difficult to receive. And if you don’t like what you’re hearing, remember that you can explore that with me too. There is nothing off limits. You can talk to me about anything and everything!

Do you trust me?

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

Do you trust me? Do you know, deep in your core, that I am for you, not against you, working and moving in all things for your good? Do you believe that I’m not trying to trip you up or catch you out?

Yes I know the answer to these questions but I want you to be honest with me and yourself because yes you trust me but your thoughts and actions sometimes suggest otherwise. I say this not to condemn you but because I love you. And because you have years of religious dogma to unpeel and unpack.

I am not the God of the religion you grew up with. I’m not the God of religion at all! Religion is about rules and prescribed ways of operating. I am about relationship, getting to the heart of a matter and living and moving from and with love.

Yes, from the outside looking in, some of the things you choose to do will look like religion to a stranger but this is a heart issue. This is about why you do the things you do, why you believe the things you believe.

You can’t earn my love but religion likes to control you with reminders that “faith without works is dead”. If someone needs your help and you don’t help them, you’re not a very good follower of Jesus, they say. And so you say yes to every request, never questioning why you’re wearing yourself out trying to please everyone.

Your faith does have action attached to it but again, this is a heart issue. You help someone because you want to, as an expression of love and in recognition of how much you are loved, not because you must as a demonstration of faith.

And you don’t do so at the expense of your health and well-being, wearing yourself into the ground. Instead you do so from a position of love, trusting that the one who loves you and knows you is also very able to lead and guide you in each and every situation. It all comes back to trust. Do you know, deep in your core, that I am for you, not against you, working and moving in all things for your good? Do you trust me?

Childlike wonder and delight

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

When you explore life from within the loving arms of your Heavenly Dad, you open yourself up to a new level of faith. Faith like a child might not sound like something you want to aspire to. After all, you want to be mature in your faith, don’t you? But what if everything is back to front in the Kingdom?

The first shall be last and the last shall be first, remember? Childlike wonder and delight is a sign of maturity. It makes no sense at all from the world’s perspective but when you explore the world with the wide-eyed wonder of a child, you see me move in ways you might otherwise miss.

Embracing the gift in each new day, stepping into it with joy, expecting to be delighted because you’re with your Dad … it’s the very best way to live. And this is the invitation when you embrace  the reality of daily life with me.

I want to surprise and delight you. I want to show you wonderful new things, step into brilliant adventures. And I can only do this as much as you’re willing to let go of the outcome. When you hold too tightly on to everything in your life you stifle my ability to flow because I’m not going to force myself on you. Where is the love in that?

Instead, this is an invitation to live freely and lightly with me. Ask me questions and hear my heart. Take action together but without the angst and frustration that comes from needing to control every, single piece.

Consider how a child explores a new game or a random object she finds while out walking. What if life was a game? An exploration? An opportunity to learn and discover and take joy from doing so? How might that change things for you?
