Have you ever wondered at the way God links things together in your mind and the light bulb just pops up and you know this is something extra-ordinary?
Imagine a road without traffic lights.
I grew up in a neighborhood close to the University of Lagos for many years as a child and I do remember there was a particular junction that lacked traffic lights at that time.
Believe me when I tell you it was horrible getting to the other side of the road where the two roads meet.
At a time like 7:30 to 8am when you need to get to school, that junction is as tight as the word itself and you could spend an hour on that particular road.
What was the reason for all the lateness and drama? Commotion
That junction lacked something. It had a man who tried to control the movement of cars trying to get to the other part of the road at the same time. Imagine a crossroad linking four different routes just to take one route leading to the university road!!
Such great commotion!!
And some years later, I’m back to that neighborhood and there’s just something different this time around.
It was so obvious
It had traffic lights
And right there, just right there at that moment when I saw the ease traffic lights provided, the light bulb came up.
That is exactly what the Holy Spirit does. Without him, life would be total chaos
Commotion and misdirection everywhere
A little fight here and there, coupled with all sorts of verbal assaults.
You could spend so much unnecessary time trying to get across a very important junction whereas, if you had the Spirit or paid attention to Him, you needn’t spend your whole life on the bus stop.
The HolySpirit is our traffic light
We refuse to obey and we end up facing the consequences.
I remembered a movie I watched a while back and it explained it further.
Two different worlds. The matrix was the world they could do wonders (the computer) while they were plugged to a certain source that provided that ability.
That plug had better not be removed cos you’d die.
Some people died in the matrix when their plugs were removed.
The Holy Spirit is your plug. You just have to stay connected or you’d die. Period!
I guess that was what probably happened to me. I paid attention to the flesh. It happens though.
Jesus cried. ‘’Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani..meaning “my God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’’Matt 27v46
The flesh cried out at that moment of his life.
So did mine in my last post.
“and do not be drunk with wine which is dissipation but be filled with the Spirit” Ephesians 5v18
I have the best thing I can ever have in this life. I have Jesus in me and I have to keep telling myself that!!
“that you put off concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness’’ Ephesians 4v22-24
Its so easy to be like Peter. You’re walking on the water and then you see everything looking so overwhelming forgetting you have someone who’s there to hold you when you’re drowning.
You don’t need to struggle
Just look up to him.
And never get disconnected.
Never drop your gaze from his
And always obey the traffic light.
“But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts’’ Romans 13v14
So not easy, but by God’s grace, I’ll walk in the light Christ has provided. In your light we see light
PS: For the wonderful people who checked up on me and showed me what a hug or hugs are all about in my last post, I Love you. I really do. Your hugs warmed me up and showed me the meaning of friendship.
