Deeper Day 329: Hot Spot

Since moving to our home in OK, we have been unable to have internet service. We live a bit outside of town and they have yet to make it truly accessible for us. So, we have to use our cell phones as hot spots when we need home internet service.

Yesterday as I was walking, God spoke the words, “Hot spot” over me. In an instance, He said, “Lisa, you are a hot spot of My Presence. When you are near others you create a hookup to Me because you carry My Spirit inside.”

I then thought that this is what every believer is supposed to be as we walk through the world. People should feel like they are suddenly alive and alert in a new way whenever they are near us. We should be bringing a connection to the world. A connection to God.

Are you doing this?

We carry the very alive Presence of God within our hearts, so we should always be bursting with life. We should always shine the Light of God into the world.

But if you’ve ever used your cellphone as a hot spot then you realize that it’s a struggle to maintain connection sometimes, right? Often times, I have to return to my phone to re-establish connection.

That’s what we’re like when we fall into grumbling and complaining. It blocks our “signal”. Walking in fear and anxiety can cause us to “lose service”.  But it doesn’t have to be this way.

We are called to guard our hearts, for they are the well-spring of life. We are also called to take every thought captive. We have been given every tool for success. We have been given a guidebook to lead us.

We MUST spend time reading scripture in partnership with Holy Spirit. We MUST spend time in quiet, listening to His voice. We MUST spend time on our knees praying and interceding. We MUST spend time encouraging others and being bold in our faith.

We MUST keep our connection strong so the world can catch a glimpse of heaven when we walk into the room. Carriers of light, not fear. Carriers of hope, not discouragement. We must actively walk in the Presence of God.

Prayer Moment: God, please help me to be a hot spot of Your Presence on the earth every day. Bless every step I take. Help my interactions with others, leave them feeling the peace of Your Presence. Forgive me for any time I’ve fallen short of this calling. I am Yours completely. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with Him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin. 1 John 1:5-7
