How do you physically grow a strong soul? BE ACTIVE! When God moves in and you give HIM full access… HE will not only heal any damages to your soul, HIS occupancy allows you to flourish beyond your imagination. When God moves in, we move forward. Your “house”, aka your soul, expands. You want your walls repainted, new room in your soul for guests, new opportunity to develop your soul? Then…why not allow the one who created all that surrounds you and even gave you Jesus to come in? Jesus, a Tekton… The Greek word for “carpenter” or more broadly as “artisan,” “contractor,” or “handyman.” Ultimately, HE is a fixer and builder of your life.
We will inevitably become weary and run out of material, designs, ideas, and steam to build. In those moments, HIS power rises. A power that can never be taken away or limited, unless you evict HIM. Nothing can separate us from HIS love. If you don’t believe me…
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,(a)neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Take a chance, invite God to move into those deep places so that you can move past your past, past your present issues, and into your future.
Realize that… it’s not about us doing more for God, it’s about giving God more access so HE can do more in us. It is only when God does more in us that HE can do more through us.
