I was reading an article about 2 year olds, and it said that at this age they wear their heart in their sleeves. My daughter just turned 2, and I can definitely confirm that that is so true!!! When she doesn’t get her way she throws the famous tantrums. The article said that at this age they don’t know how to control their emotions therefore, they are prone to have these emotional meltdown at any time. They don’t yet know how to express themselves so they result to pitching fits.
Many people are the same when it comes to their faith. How many times have you let your emotions get the best of you? When the problems arise in your life, how have you handled it? Have you thrown a spiritual tantrum? Have you quickly questioned God? Have you lost your faith and confidence in God?
When a person isn’t born of God, she is prone to be emotional when facing certain situations. She tends to use her emotions instead of her faith. The word of God says: “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” (John 3:6)
This is why we emphasize the Baptism with the Holy Spirit so much, because once you are born of the Spirit you are no longer dominated by your emotions. Your faith and confidence in God will surpass any problem that may come your way. The Holy Spirit inside of you will give you the reassurance that God is with you and you will overcome, no matter what.
My dear mothers, take advantage of the purposes that are done in the church, the days where we seek the Holy Spirit and make this your priority. Many mothers just seek the solution to their problems and not He who will live inside of them and make them the blessing.
But, before God can pour down His Spirit upon you, your heart must be completely clean from any sins, errors, the past, hatred, etc. You must be completely free.
God’s greatest desire is to pour His Spirit onto you, why not use this to your advantage? Do not rest until you receive the greatest blessing in your life!
