not in charge

Friday June 5th, John 3: 8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit."  If you try to get a handle on the wind, you are doomed to failure.  You can use windmills, sails, etc. and capture some of its power, but put it in a jar and it just is not the same thing.  The same is true of the Spirit.  The Spirit is not captured by speaking in tongues, lively worship, deep reading and meditation or anything else we do.  We are not in charge of the Spirit.  The Spirit moves where it will and when it will and always leads us quietly back to God.  The spirit can move things and cannot be captured in a jar, but it can be refreshing in your face and helpful at your back and in your life.  It blows wherever it pleases, and brings the grace of God with it wherever it goes.
