We must be a Spirit-filled people. The Holy Spirit sanctifies and pours upon us the Spirit of adoption. We are God's children and I think many people have forgotten this. The world is confused and searching in all the wrong places for peace. Peace will be ours when we let the head knowledge we have about God pierce our hearts. Our hearts will never be satisfied with anything less than God. Never. We were made for love and God's love is the only thing the human spirit can't live without. We try to fill this spot meant for God with all kinds of things that weren't meant to be there. Only one thing fits...God. He is the piece of the puzzle that finishes the whole picture. If we do not have Him - we have nothing. The good news is that God does give Himself to us. He desires this even more than we do because that is the nature of pure Love.
I went to an intercessory prayer group on Monday. I was late because I couldn't find the place but once I did the group welcomed me. They stand in the gap for those who need the Lord. They were explaining it to me, but I instantly understood because I do this at home, too. It's more powerful in a group, though. We all need to do this. We have to stand in the gap for those who are hurting and can't find their way to our Lord. Our prayers are very powerful because the Holy Spirit gives us His own power. We are not left powerless and alone. This is Satan's lie. God never abandons us, He is constantly knocking at the door to our hearts... but we have to turn the knob and let Him in.
