“He restoreth my soul” (Psalm 23:3, KJV).
What does God’s Spirit do in your life?
Among other things the Holy Spirit makes your spirit whole.
This is an idea worth pondering (and not just because it’s a neat word-play).
A lot of people are talking about “wholeness.” It’s related to being mentally healthy and to living with balance, honesty and integrity. These are good things.
So when I talk about the Holy Spirit making our spirits whole, I’m referring to God’s ongoing concern for our well-being and to the ways he is making us more whole-hearted in our relationships with him, ourselves, and others.
In a world of rushing, and at a time when people often equate their busyness with their worth, I think it’s easy to conclude that God only cares about what you’re doing and not how you’re doing.
But I think he cares about both.
When God gives you rest—and when he gives you friendship, faith, laughter and love—he is making your spirit whole. God not only cares about what you’re doing but how you’re doing.
The Doctor is in. He’s beyond qualified. Let him do his work. He knows your heart is more than a muscle.
The Holy Spirit makes your spirit whole.
