The Holy Spirit Will Wash Over Us...

I hope that all of you are having a wonderful day!  I was so blessed this morning when I was out walking and talking to the Lord, He reminded me of how strong we can be as a body.  As many of you know I have a blog on Tumblr, where I am a Grandma to many wonderful young people.  Sometimes they just need to talk to someone who has been there before them and I feel so blessed when I can help.  I always try to use the Bible and incorporate it in my answer.  I truly believe that as a Christian the Bible is our handbook for these last days.

Many of my young people have told me that when trouble comes their way they begin to doubt their walk with God because there faith seems so shallow.  I like to remind them to put on the full armor of God. I love how the Lord gives us everything we need through his Word.  The Bible says:
The Whole Armor of God
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.  Ephesians 6: 10-20
I heard an old preacher tell us a story about the Roman guard.  How they used to put olive oil on their shields so that it would make the metal so bright that it would blind their adversaries.  When they would come up to a stronghold they would all stand together and lift their shields so that none of the stones that the enemy was throwing at them would hit them.

I thought wow we could learn so much from this.  Oil for Christians is the Holy spirit and when we get a crack in our faith their is nothing better then to have a whole group of Christians stand together in prayer with you to fill in the cracks in your faith until you grow stronger.  There is so much power in prayer.  When the Wind of the Holy spirit begins to blow it can work a mighty miracle.  I had a crack in my faith when I was diagnosed with lung cancer.  My sisters and brothers in Christ stood with me in prayer and I am free from that cancer because of my healing Jesus!!!

So when you feel like you can't go on, that you are weak and scared.  Take the hand that your brothers and sisters offer and lift all of your cares to Jesus Christ.  Where your world was dark, you will begin to see a speck of light break through.   Then that speck will get bigger and bigger until it fills you to overflowing!!!
