The universe we live in is breathtaking in its beauty. Unfortunately, due to a phenomenon called “light pollution”, it takes some planning for most people to get to a place where you can still see the heavens in all their glory. Here atop Haleakala in Maui, our beautiful earth is put into perspective amidst our little cul-de-sac of the known universe called the Milky Way Galaxy. An amazing verse from the Bible shows God’s heart regarding the three pinnacles of His creation “…Thus declares Jehovah, who stretches forth the heavens and lays the foundations of the earth and forms the spirit of man within him,” (Zechariah 12:1). God set the heavens in such a special way that the earth is a perfect environment to sustain man. How perfect? If the earth’s orbit around the sun was changed by just 1%, earth could not sustain life! The heavens are for the earth, the earth is for man, and the spirit of man is for God. Man is the center of God’s entire creation; you are the center of God’s creation! Yes, God loves you that much! “The spirit of man is the lamp of Jehovah, Searching all the innermost parts of the inner being.” Proverbs 20:27 Man’s spirit is the unique organ installed in every human being that enables us to contact God, enjoy God, worship God and serve God. To turn your spirit on is incredibly easy but many people go through their whole lives never even knowing that they have a human spirit. “For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the spirit is life and peace.” Romans 8:6 The blessings that come to you when you turn on your human spirit are fantastic. In this verse it tells us that by setting our mind on the spirit we receive life (“zoe” GK for eternal life) and peace! Another wonderful verse tells us “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23 So how do we turn on our spirit, set our mind on the spirit? “…no one can say Lord Jesus except in the Holy Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 1:3b So the easiest way to touch your spirit, turn on your human spirit, touch the Spirit of God is to call on the life-giving name of Jesus Christ! Softly, loudly, however your environment allows but every time you call and pray, you start the rivers of living water flowing into and out of your innermost being. “Lord Jesus, Lord Jesus, Lord Jesus I love You! Thank You for dying for me, forgiving me, cleansing me, coming to live inside of me. Thank You for being my Savior! Thank You for today!” So be encouraged! Life and peace, love and joy are just a call away!
