God Thinking XVI - By Invitation Only 7

"When you are awake, God is thinking of you.
When you are asleep, God is thinking of you.
God thinking is about understanding what God is thinking of/toward you.

Even when you are asleep, God is keeping your dreams, your hopes, your desires, your purpose, your calling alive.  You cannot do it alone.  You never could.  Those who think they can accomplish anything without Christ at the center of their being have been blinded by the enemy.

Jesus said, ...”for without me ye can do nothing.” John 15:5
You who have been born again are the temple of the Holy Spirit. 
God, the Holy Spirit resides in your temple. 
The Holy Spirit did not barge in as an unwanted guest.
The Holy Spirit indwells you by invitation or not at all.
The Holy Spirit must be invited in.

When the Holy Spirit is invited in, He comes to make His abode with you.  When God created mankind, He created us a living soul; 

He made, now watch this closely:
The Word says, “ man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” John 14:6b There was an invitation from the Father to you or you could not have come to Jesus.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  John 3:16 Again there was an invitation to every man, woman and child to come to Jesus.

“Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28  Again, by invitation Jesus calls you unto Himself."
