“Host My Spirit, let Him lead you, guide you and bless you.”

A box was specifically made to carry the presence of God. It got stolen and without knowing God’s power, the thieves carried the box on a simple cart and placed this box among other gods. The God of Israel decaptitated all other gods. The indifference to God’s law led to irreverance, which led to death. The greatest disrespect to the Holy Spirit is to live, act and pray as if the Holy Spirit does not exist. God cannot be figured out, He can only be trusted. When the Holy Spirit breaks a spirit of oppression, depression, pride, greed in us, He destroys the idols within, but He expects us to clean out the debris. God will decapitate all other gods. Jealousy is defeated with Jehovah! Every power that holds us hostage, the Holy Spirit breaks it, but we are responsible to sweep out the broken pieces. We must renew our minds and become fascinated with He who dwells within us, the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit makes all the difference in our walk with Jesus. We must chase the Holy Spirit like David did. Fasting Fun

The Lord’s Holy Box was taken up the hill to the house of Abinadab the priest. They performed a special ceremony to prepare Abinadab’s son, Eleazar, to guard the Lord’s Holy Box. The Holy Box stayed at Abinadab’s house for twenty years. “Samuel told the Israelites, “If you are really coming back to the Lord with all your heart, you must throw away your foreign gods and your idols of Ashtoreth. You must give yourselves fully to the Lord and serve only him. Then He will save you from the Philistines….The Israelites met together at Mizpah. They got water and poured it out before the Lord. In this way they began a time of fasting. They did not eat any food that day, and they confessed their sins. They said, “We have sinned against the Lord….the Lord caused a loud clap of thunder to hit near the Philistines. The thunder scared the Philistines, and they became confused, so the Israelites defeated them in battle. The men of Israel ran out of Mizpah and chased the Philistines all the way to Beth Car. They killed Philistine soldiers all along the way. Peace Comes to Israel –  After this Samuel set up a special stone to help people remember what God did. Samuel put the stone between Mizpah and Shen and named the stone “Stone of Help.” 1 Samuel 7:3-6
