You Need More Than Caffeine

When our Stella was still very tiny they got to bring her home. She managed to be in the four pound range at four months of age. She was tiny. She was also hooked up to heart and breathing monitors. In order to help her little heart beat well she was administered caffeine daily. That stimulation kept her going until she could mature enough that her heart could beat strongly and regularly on its own. It was nice when she no longer had leads to work around.  

Oh beloved, God wants you to know that Holy Spirit is connected to you. He is the stimulation for your heart. When it seems there’s no way to keep going, He is your strength. When you feel down and out and hopelessly underwhelmed He will give you the motivation to keep going. Drink Him in daily. You can never take too much of Him for He the love and care of the Father poured into your life. Unlike Stella who eventually didn’t need the caffeine, you will need this caffeine for your heart all the days of your life. He is the Comforter. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He makes the doldrums come alive. He makes the sorrows flee. He is the impetus for your calling. Without Holy Spirit indwelling you will not make it. For Jesus said He would leave you a Comforter and without Him you can do nothing. It’s that abiding presence of God within your heart and your reliance upon Him that gives you life, breath, hope, courage, and faith. He is your anointing and He is the one who moves you into the appointment you have with your destiny – your calling. There is no power apart from the Father who has given His power to you through Holy Spirit! Everything you need to maintain life and godliness is within the bounds of God, who keeps you going and carries you when you cannot go on your own. He also gives strength to your prayers as you intercede fearlessly for yourself and others. 

God loves you and He’s for you! No other can be within you to bring the Kingdom of God to your heart and mind. Jesus made the way for you to live the Power Filled life through the indwelling Spirit! Rejoice that you have that same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead as you breathe in the Light of Holy Spirit living!

Romans 5:5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

1 Corinthians 3:16 Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

Romans 8:16 The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God

Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Galatians 5:25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.

About rebekahbeene

In a Women’s meeting in 1983, I went up for prayer and to see if God had “anything for me”. The woman of God who was praying for people spoke over my life. She said these words: “You will write books. You can go to the bank on it. Rivers of living water will flow from your belly…”
