Hello to all... Just a very quick post to let you all know how I've realized this sequence.. I always emphasize the RECEIVE component, but before we can even BELIEVE, we must PERCEIVE our Need!! Admitting we are needy can be trying at times, but what a relief when we finally do so!! So, PERCEIVING our need is critical!! Go ahead, and let the HOLY SPIRIT help you do so... Then, when you do on a daily, or even a moment-to-moment basis, wonderful GROWTH WILL HAPPEN!! BTW... I've also put 2 other words together recently.. INTERNAL and ETERNAL.. For, when JESUS is welcome within us, we are INTERNALLY CHANGED and ETERNALLY SECURE! We are changed forever.. In fact, I sometimes share how I often 'feel' as if I'm in Heaven on Earth!! True PEACE, HOPE, and JOY are quite 'heavenly,' for lack of a better term!! ROMANS 15:13 is a great verse as it offers.. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
