Consider this metaphor –
The Holy Spirit is like a hurricane over the waters stirring up the winds of passion and thanksgiving. The waters are swelling higher and higher as the anticipation of God’s nearness becomes a reality to weary hearts.
- Many are fearful and long for the calm they had before the wind began to move.
- Many are fascinated with the instruments predicting the storm.
- But there are those who are out in the wind allowing it to move them where it will.
This is where the Lord has called us to go. Leave your storm shelters, which are the places of comfort you run to when you realize you have no control. Leave your weather center predicting what will happen next, and jump out in the storm.
This is the moving of the Holy Spirit, and He desires that you experience the power of His passion for the Cross. Yes, the Cross is the center of His passion. It is the eye of the hurricane around which the wind of the Holy Spirit moves. Cling to the Cross-for it is by the Cross that you can enter the winds of His passion without fear of death. It is your only haven and hope!
How is the power of The Holy Spirit helping your marriage grow and change? In what ways is He leading you, and are you finding yourself resisting or letting go? What difference do you see in your relationship compared to this time last year?
