[b]LEAVE ROOM FOR GOD[/b]"But when it pleased God. . ." Galatians 1:15As workers for God we have to learn to make room for God - to give God "elbow room." We calculate and estimate, and say that this and that will happen, and we forget to make room for God to come in as He chooses. Would we be surprised if God came into our meeting or into our preaching in a way we had never looked for Him to come? Do not look for God to come in any particular way, but look for Him. That is the way to make room for Him. Expect Him to come, but do not expect Him only in a certain way. However much we may know God, the great lesson to learn is that at any minute He may break in. We are apt to over look this element of surprise, yet God never works in any other way. All of a sudden God meets the life - "When it was the good pleasure of God. . ."Keep your life so constant in its contact with God that His surprising power may break out on the right hand and on the left. Always be in a state of expectancy, and see that you leave room for God to come in as He likes.

I almost posted this myself when I thought I saw your subject line. Dont you just love this! This excites me so much. Open the lid and let God out of the box. He is coming and He is coming how He wants - because He is God. He is such a creative God. Never dull! Always blessing in ways only He knows will thrill us to no end. What an awesome God we serve! He is the New Hallelujah! Have a great day saints as we wait on Him and look to even the smallest of things - they come from Him - and give Him thanks and praises - for He is God! Amen and Amen!Jam 1:17 Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.
Leave room for God --who encompass the whole of whole. everything is his and his is everything. He is the I am That I am! He is the Be in being able to live and breath and have our being in him---so we move and have our being in him---the thread of life and the life of the thread.All he wants is a litte room to come in a---spread the Holy spirit abroad in our hearts and minds. Not just the flesh mind or intellect --but the spiritual mind which reachs into the soul of every human being. We all know what the creator said "Let it Be" and it was --light ,air ,water ,,,life it self.You know in the being was the word and the word was with God -----so we all need to leave room for the Holy Spirit in our life. in Christ's service, Gerald Harris
