God’s Spirit by Pastor Melissa Scott

Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that  this is a promise we can take and make it our own. Wherever you are, if you’re looking at the circumstance remember Faith looks beyond the circumstance. Faith looks beyond reason and steps over everything. When you’re at the point that your ‘habitation,’ where you ‘live,’ starts to be this tabernacle not made with hands because God’s Spirit is already living in you, you can then say “This is where I live. I live in Christ.

He lives in me and underneath are His powerful everlasting arms. I’m safe.” Go to the New Testament passage that we know all too well, Matthew 14:27. “Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good ‘courage’…And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship” (if there’s one place you should underline in your Bible it’s this one), “he walked on the water…But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand,” His arm, “and caught him, and said, ‘why did you  double-think’?” I want you to connect the dots because sometimes you can grab a promise in the Old Testament and fail to see that God repeats Himself in many diverse ways through the Bible.
