I will receive whatever I request.
This is the time of the year that it is important to be vigilant for the teachings of the ego. The ego places special emphasis on the body during this time of the year. It likes to busy the body with activities of the season such as the busyness of shopping, overeating, and overdrinking. The ego’s lesson is that this is salvation and that it is joy. By placing emphasis on the body the ego distracts us from the body of Christ where our true salvation and joy lies. As we go about the holiday season this year, let us practice remembering to stay tuned in within our minds with Holy Spirit’s perception of persons, places and events that we may find ourselves in. Let us listen to Him speak to us and show us in those moments what He would have us see and learn about the ego’s shenanigans.
After the holiday season is over, the ego likes to place more emphasis on the body through a commitment to change the body to make it look better because it believes it will bring everlasting joy and salvation. Hidden behind all of that is really a secret desire for your death because this is the gift the ego offers at the end of the dream. Let us side with the Holy Spirit and receive the gift that He has for us instead of the dream.
