“THE WIND BLOWS WHERE IT PLEASES.  YOU HEAR
THE SOUND, BUT YOU CANNOT TELL WHERE IT
COMES FROM OR WHERE IT IS GOING.”
( JOHN 3:8 *NIV )

Dear Friend,
What Jesus was referring to here is the Holy Spirit.  For
He often works in mysterious ways that we can’t predict,
or at times even understand.  And just like the wind, we
cannot control the Holy Spirit either.

After all God has said; “MY THOUGHTS ARE NOT
YOUR THOUGHTS, NEITHER ARE YOUR WAYS MY
WAYS,” DECLARES THE LORD.  AS THE HEAVENS
ARE HIGHER THAN THE EARTH, SO ARE MY WAYS
HIGHER THAN YOUR WAYS AND MY THOUGHTS
THAT YOUR THOUGHTS.”  ( ISAIAH 55:8-9 )

Now when you think about it, we could not control our
own physical birth, nor could we control our Spiritual Birth!
For it is written; 
IT IS GOD WHO HAS MADE US AND
GIVEN US THE SPIRIT AS A DEPOSIT, GUARANTEEING
WHAT IS TO COME.  ( 2 CORINTHIANS 5:5 )  Further;
GOD HAS POURED OUT HIS LOVE INTO OUR HEARTS
BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, WHOM HE HAS GIVEN US.
( ROMANS 5:5 )

Now our Spiritual Birth is the one of the greatest gifts
of them all!   For it comes with God’s additional gifts of
the fruit of the Spirit; 
FOR THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT
IS LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS,
GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS AND
SELF-CONTROL.  ( GALATIANS 5:22-23 )
  
The more
we love our Heavenly Father, the more of these gifts He
gives to us!

Therefore in closing, Friend, always remember that
we are not human beings having a Spiritual experience, but
Spiritual Beings having a human experience!

Have a wonderful day and may; THE GRACE OF THE
LORD JESUS CHRIST BE WITH YOUR SPIRIT.   Amen.
( PHILEMON 25 )

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
