Our spirits are like sponges that can absorb or release water. Except, it isn’t water our spirits absorb, they absorb energies. Energies that can accumulate and add up for either our detriment or our benefit.
In the exact same way, we MUST change the oil in a car after a few thousand miles on the road, we MUST also do the same with our God given spirits.
With an automobile, we ourselves are in control. We have options. We can buy fresh new oil and do the work ourselves or take the vehicle to the dealer.
With our God given spirits, God is in total control. There is only one dealer, one maker, and one manufacturer with the authority and capacity to to change the oil in our spirits and it is- Him Alone.
Changing the oil in our spirits, is a two fold process which requires:
A- Us asking Almighty God for forgiveness by
-taking time to pull our spirits into His Eternal Garage
-admitting and confessing before Him all the wrong turns, choices, actions- deliberate or unknowingly, that we have committed and continue to commit
against Him, ourselves, and others
-asking Him for forgiveness for these actions, including help to no longer commit such actions
B- Him Forgiving, if He so chooses
At once the dark black toxic sludge of sin transforms into a pure golden-honey anointed oil, that refreshes and revitalizes every part of his spiritual and physical machinery.
It is upon believing in Almighty God, in His existence, that man becomes truly alive for the first time. Only He knows who He grants forgiveness to or not, but if it is you yourself that believes, confesses and asks for forgiveness, it is you that indeed shall know…by the peace and tranquility of God living within your own heart.
For the man, who has not been forgiven, there is no peace or rest and within him exists an undeniable sensation of enmity between himself and his maker. Upon his shoulders he carries an unmistakable weight that cannot be lifted nor removed any other way but one- by the grace of God’s forgiveness. There is no comparison in all the Earth, that equals the liberty, peace, and joy a man experiences when the road is all clear- in other words- nothing standing in the way between himself and God; and his account is in good standing.
