Still Saturday–Shadows/Reality

“It is very easy to quench the Spirit;
we do it by despising the chastening of the Lord,
by fainting when we are rebuked by Him.
If we have only a shallow experience of sanctification,
we mistake the shadow for the reality,
and when the Spirit of God begins to check, we say –
oh, that must be the devil.
Never quench the Spirit,
 and do not despise Him when He says to you –
“Don’t be blind on this point any more;
you are not where you thought you were.
Up to the present I have not been able to reveal it to you,
but I reveal it now.”
When the Lord chastens you like that, let Him have His way.”

  1. The Lord taps me on the head gently and reminds me that something needs to be changed in my heart/soul/spirit. When I misunderstand the situation, He taps me again, a little stronger. Eventually, I finally catch on. [Less than bright sometimes, if you can possibly believe it.]


  2. Miss Jody – This is very convicting, indeed. And I really like how you captured the light in that image.
