182- Keep the Spirit in Control
April 13, 1986
Revelation: I must be fully in the Spirit in my relationship with my children, my circumstances, my body.
My wisdom teeth pulling experience last week was an outrageously beautiful experience and picture of the Spirit being in control.
My body was being torturously dealt with! I can see the grotesque faces of the nurse and the doctor frantically trying to get those teeth out. My cheek felt like it was tearing at one point and the drilling noises were screeching and high-pitched and deafening.
BUT I HAD ASKED GOD CLEARLY: NO MATTER WHAT MY BODY GOES THROUGH LET MY SPIRIT– MEANING YOUR SPIRIT IN MY SPIRIT– BE IN CONTROL.
I was several times reassuring the doctor and the nurse that I was fine. They were apologetic for putting me through so much but I was able to comfort them!
Now two days later, weakened from not eating because of the discomfort in my mouth, the boys are rowdy, my temper is short, there was an early morning phone call…I was going to have to answer the phone…
….but to the Lord I went as my Refuge. How can I reign in this situation with Christ Jesus? I felt He said, “Take dominion over the boys and don’t let the dirty dishes take dominion over you. You are in control. My Spirit will fill you and lead you. Be confident.”
