Nothing is off limits

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

I see and know the end from the beginning. Some of the pieces that look messy or untouchable to you are pure beauty to me! An empty tomb. A valley of dry bones. A life that feels washed up and wasted. I work with all things, turn all things to good. Nothing is impossible for me!

It’s time to stop considering things from the perspective of logic or common sense and instead let me pour my wonder and majesty into every dead and dry and barren situation in your life. You think it feels too much for you? You can’t see how? You don’t have the answers? Perfect! You were never meant to try and figure it out on your own. I want us to do this together. 

Consider this your invitation to bring to me every single thing that is a worry or frustration or cause of angst in your life right now. And don’t think “bring to me” is a mental exercise to do inside your head. Yes, your imagination is my playground and there is power in words, both written and spoken.

So tell me out loud or write down in a list all the things that are on your mind right now. What are the problems you feel like you need answers to? Where in your life do you not know how to move next? Who or what is causing you concern? It’s time to lay it all out. It’s time to get real with me in a way you’ve never been real before.

Yes, you think you’ve been real with me but I’m inviting you into a new level of being seen and known. It is time to start taking me at my word, casting every care on me – not just the ones you think are acceptable to bring to me!

There is nothing that I don’t already know of course but there is power in bringing each and all things to me. Yes right now, this is important. And if you think you can’t, bring that to me too. Nothing is off limits!

Open the box and let me in

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

The only box you’ll ever find me in is the one I climb into to reach you. There is no road I won’t journey down to meet with you and I’m inviting you to live with that same sense of openness and connection as you do life with the people around you.

I am holy and you are doing life with me through the lens of Jesus’s birth, death and resurrection. That gives you a different level of access. You don’t need to be afraid of approaching me. There is nothing off limits or unavailable to you.

What if you lived today with both these truths at play? I’m inviting you to be all things to all people and to claim the kind of access to me that your ancestors could only dream of.

As such, you don’t need to be afraid when someone comes to you with an unfamiliar way of expressing something. Yes, weigh all things in light of the bible, test all words that claim to come from me, but do so with an open heart.

I know your heart, your deep desire to move with me, so if you let me lead you in all things, even the way you do life with people, I won’t guide you wrong.

Take me at my word. Claim all the gifts I have for you, the very first one being my Spirit. I am with you always. Leading, teaching, comforting, explaining, guiding … I’m very good at being Me so why not let me have the fullest access you know how to give?

And understand that if you need help giving me full access, I make that easy for you too. You simply need to ask me! I am pouring out my Spirit on young and old, all people, with no regard for position or ability. You only need to open the box and let me in. Nothing could be simpler!

Move as I move

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

Never forget that I am playing the long game and when you move with me, there’s no such thing as “lost time” or “too late”. I can make up the difference, cause rapid acceleration, redeem time – but only when necessary. Your idea of productivity needs an overhaul! This was never about helping you power through so you can check off more tasks, finish more lists.

And I am not an item on your agenda or another “to do” to check off. You live in an age that is obsessed with doing and experiencing. Watch that you don’t slip into striving mode. And I say this not to chastise you but to help you move and live and operate from my best, just like you asked me to.

The very best thing you can do is let me tune your ear to my voice. Hear me. Understand me. And then move as I move. What could be simpler?

You worry about all the things you haven’t done yet? Stop! Refuse to worry! Yes, it really is a choice. You don’t need to react to every input. You can breathe and wait. This is not true when you’re caring one on one for a critically ill person. Then the inputs and outputs are vital, but for everything else? Take a deep breath and wait. And allow me to sustain you.

Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me. Watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to love freely and lightly. Fully alive, fully human, a child and friend of the King!

Love at the expense of efficiency!

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

Don’t get weary in well-doing! Fix your eyes on Jesus. Look to your big brother and don’t give up! You fear you’re back to square one, travelling around the foot of the same mountain because the terrain looks familiar. Ask me to open your eyes and let me really open them. Things might look familiar but you have not been here before!

Same mountain but higher up. That’s why you’re in danger of falling for the lie that everything looks the same. Familiar yes, but if you look closely you’ll see that your perspective has shifted. 

And I’m calling you higher still. There is so much I’m yearning to share with you. That’s why I keep inviting you to bring so many questions to me. I love questions! Don’t think of the questions as another piece to overcome before you arrive or before you see my promises to you fulfilled.

I told you before … from my perspective the promises are already done. Walk tall. Speak my promises with confidence because they are done, it is finished. I have moved!

The questions aren’t about getting the correct answers. The questions are simply an opportunity for us to do life together. When you come to me open-hearted, you give me permission to share everything that is on my heart.

You’re wondering why your Creator should choose to be limited by your willingness to hear and seek me? Love. It’s always been about love and love that is not chosen, freely given, is no love at all!

I move through you at your invitation as a concrete, practical example of what it means to live and love and move in community. Yes, things would be much more efficient if I simply forced my will on you but at what cost? A cost far too dear!

I am love and it is vital to me that I show you what love really means, moment by moment, even at the expense of efficiency!

I’m meeting you where you are

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

There’s a difference between resting in me and procrastination. The latter is fuelled ultimately by fear. You think it’s not fear, you think it’s overwhelm or uncertainty but both are rooted in fear: Fear of not knowing the correct action to take.

What if there was never one correct action? What if all of life with me was simply about moving with the certainty of my love, hearing my heart and moving with heaven? Yes, I know I made it sound easy, straight forward but that’s because it is. The lies from the enemy are what complicate things!

You sit with me, hear my heart, bask in my love – and then start to fall for the lie that you look like you’re being lazy and you should be doing something productive. What if sitting with me, hearing my heart, basking in my love, was the most productive thing you could possibly be doing right now?

The beauty of doing life with me, moving with heaven, is that when I invite you to take action and you feel yourself pulling back or putting off, you can explore that with me and I can help you understand what’s really going on.

And so I say it again … what if the very best, most productive and life-affirming thing you could be doing right now is being with me, hearing my heart, exploring my love?

Yes, I know there are things you must do today. Demands and expectations you put on yourself or allow others to put on you. Some might call those things your “job” and you feel a sense of responsibility. You argue that you can’t simply down tools and meet with me right now. Guess what? I am right there with you, slap bang in the centre of those demands and expectations. I can meet you where you are. There are no hoops to jump through!

Fix your eyes on Jesus

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

Keep hearing me, I want to help you. There’s more at stake here than you really know, see or understand. And I don’t mean that in a dramatic way, it’s not a threat, but you don’t appreciate the war that is raging all around you. Paul said it. The battle really isn’t against flesh and blood.  The battle is against the principalities and powers of darkness.

Fix your eyes on Jesus! You don’t need to worry or be anxious about anything, the battle is already won. It is finished! There’s a difference between recognising there is a battle – albeit one already won – and burying your head in the sand. Don’t be nervous, don’t be deceived. Fix your eyes on Jesus!

Jesus really is the answer to everything. He is the exact representation of my being. He is your certainty when you feel uncertain. He is your big brother to look up to when you’re not sure how to move. He is everything!

At the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow. He is my crowning glory, the apple of my eye, and your very best friend. See Jesus alongside you as you face challenges today. When you’re celebrating, know that he celebrates with you. The more you can live today in the reality of Jesus, the easier the battle will be.

That’s what it really means to fix your eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of your faith. He faced a very real, tangible choice and he chose to walk the path we planned way back in eternity past. He chose to because He loves me and he loves you.

Let me help you fix your eyes on Jesus then so you won’t lose heart and give up. There is so much at stake here, you cannot give up. Moment by moment, that’s how we move. Always me helping you. You don’t have to play on your own!

The moment has come

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

I’m calling you forward with bold confidence. The moments that have led to here are no accident. Receive everything I have for you and embrace all of it. You think you’re excited but I am even more so! I have been full of anticipation for this moment. The anticipation of it has brought me great joy!

Yes, seriously. I’ve been waiting for this moment for a very long time and now you’re here. The moment has come and we can do it. Hooray! It’s going to be brilliant!

You think I’m kidding because you look around you and you think everything looks exactly the same as it did yesterday but what if you looked with new eyes, spiritual eyes? What if you could see this moment from the perspective of heaven? Trust me when I tell you that it would change everything for you.

When I tell you that it is finished, that the miracle is done, I’m not speaking in hyperbole. From my perspective it is already done. I moved the first moment you asked me to and now it’s time for the natural world around you to catch up. I’m ready to show you the miracle!

Stop getting so hung up on time and specifics. Yes, I know that’s easy for me to say because I see and know and understand all the pieces but, me-helping you, you could relax and simply flow with me. I promise that when you do, it’ll make the journey so much more enjoyable.

Rest in me. Yes, this moment is significant and I’m inviting you to claim all of it, but do so from a place of rest and ease. I am interested in how you journey, remember. When you flow with me, a life of joy, you point others to my goodness. Your joy brings salvation to the nations!

Does heaven have a scent?

The physical world around you is a mirror or shadow of what’s going on in the spiritual world, as demonstrated in today’s little story in the podcast.

It’s time to ask God to open all your senses, both physically and spiritually, so you can hear the delightful, wonderful things He wants to share with you.

Today’s activation is a declaration & prayer:

God, open all of my senses to see, hear, taste touch and smell you afresh! Let me experience all the senses of heaven! I am open to experiencing you anew today!

We knew this day would come!

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

Those times when you worry you’re not enough, I have news for you … You are holy, set apart, called for a plan and a purpose, because of Jesus. He did everything for you at the cross and we planned it a long time ago. We knew this day would come!

So no, no one is holy enough by their own effort so it’s time to stop trying. I’m not saying give up or give in. It’s simply time to stop striving. You don’t need to do or be anything in order to win my love and affection, you’ve already got it! You are enough. I have equipped you, given you everything you need for this moment and every moment still to come. You are like Esther, for such a time as this.

Yes, I could move and act through someone else and if you say no to the invitation I will, but I am inviting you. I have prepared you. I want you. This is our moment, I simply need your amen!

You don’t need to play pretend or try and show up in any way other than the way I created you. Don’t try and imitate the style of another. Don’t wish you were more like another. Be you! I knew what I was doing when I hand-crafted you. You were seen and created and known as I created the world!

If you feel like you must imitate anyone, imitate Jesus, imitate love. Allow me to move in your life and be who I created you to be – fully alive, fully human! I knew what I was doing. I did not make a mistake and I don’t need a do-over.

Trust that the Creator, your heavenly Dad, knew exactly what He was doing because I did and I do. You can trust me.

You are the object of my desire

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

I don’t need you, I want you. I am complete in myself, Father, Son, Spirit, and I desire to be in community with you. Understand that there is a massive difference between need and want. Yes, I will supply all your needs, seek first the Kingdom and I’ll take care of the rest, but guess what? Your wants excite and interest me too because I am motivated by my want, my desire. You are the object of my desire, my want.

You’ve been taught that I’m not a magic genie standing to attention ready to poof into existence every whim you have and it’s true, I’m not a genie. I’m so much better than that! But don’t fall for the lie that I’m uninterested in your desires, the desires of your heart. I’m very interested in them. I gave them to you!

Those things you hold dearly, those things you’d love to see in the world, your deepest “why”? All from me! So as your God who operates from desire, why shouldn’t I be interested in yours?

Ask me to show you what that means from my perspective Ask me how I see those desires unfolding and what you can do to help release them.

Hold your desires loosely, don’t strangle life out of the the thing you love, and let me hold your desires with you. One touch from me will see those desires both fulfilled and transformed! You have an inkling of the things om my heart for you but when the fuller picture is revealed you’re going to be dazzled!

And it starts by recognising what it is I have put inside of you, the treasure buried deep, your ultimate “why”. Start there, with me, and watch and look with wonder as those dreams and desires come to life in me!
