December 22, Cultivate His Presence

Share

Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee.
—Joshua 1:9
Point six: Cultivate the art of recognizing the presence of the Spirit everywhere. Get acquainted with the Holy Ghost and then begin to cultivate His presence. When you wake in the morning, in place of burying your head behind the Tribune, couldn’t you get in just a few thoughts of God while you eat your grapefruit?
Remember, cultivating the Holy Ghost’s acquaintance is a job. It is something you do, and yet it is so easy and delightful….Is this for ministers? This is for ministers, certainly. Is it for housewives? Yes, housewives, and clerks…and students. If you will thus see it and thus believe it and thus surrender to it, there won’t be a secular stone in the pavement. There won’t be a common, profane deed that you will ever do.
The most menial task can become a priestly ministration when the Holy Ghost takes over and Christ becomes your all in all. HTB057-058
The sanctified life [is] God-centered….Ennui is impossible with a soul full of the Holy Ghost….God is seen and felt in everything. SAN089
Tozer on the Holy Spirit.
