Quick explanation: once you have experienced the drenching of the Holy Spirit, that penetrating connection stays on all of the time. When you are “in-of the Spirit,” Jesus or the Father adjusts the amount of spiritual power and the type of gift displayed, depending on the situation.
As I wrote my last blog entry, I realized the Father had turned up the “Spirit of Jesus” dial on me. The sensation increased after I had finished through pondering and talking to Him about other things I could have written. I did not sleep much the night prior, so I had lain down to nap, but I was still too “on” to sleep. Soon, words and sentences came into me and I debated about getting up and writing them down. “I need sleep, please.”
The Father had turned the spiritual volume down when I awoke. Argh! I should have forgone sleep because I cannot remember a word He delivered. I wanted to kick myself! Sorry, Father. Lesson learned. Do not let this happened to you!
Proverbs 6:9-11 [and Proverbs 24:33-34]
9 How long will you lie there, O sluggard?
When will you arise from your sleep?
10 A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest,
11 and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
and want like an armed man.
