The Holy Spirit through the ransom of Jesus Christ is a marvelous thing!

As much as being born-again by the power of The Holy Spirit through the ransom of Jesus Christ is a marvelous thing, we suffer when we neglect to keep our eyes focused on Jesus Christ and start allowing our desires to predominate our eyes, hearts, and minds. This is when we grieve the Holy Spirit inside us and as a result we ourselves start to grieve for what seems like no reason. But in reality God the Father is getting our attention to remind us that as his born-again children, we need to stay focused on the bigger picture. Always keeping our eyes hearts and minds seeking His will and righteousness first and foremost so that we able to avoid all the traps of the enemy (satan) that seek to destroy and trip us up spiritually and physiologically. Indeed when we remain focused on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and seek his perfect will and guidance, we become more than winners of the greatest prizes this world could never offer. Being in Christ Jesus means we have his perfect peace and love inside us, and His perfect peace and love always dominates over all fear, and runs roughshod over what unbelievers consider disappointments. But to us as true believers in Christ, seeming disappointments are the bigger picture of Gods overriding will that has a greater purpose that God reveals to us in His good timing. Eventually God allows us to look back at our past and see how following God's path rather then our own will, rescues us from terrible life decisions and ultimately great loss, sorrow, and disappointment. “Despite all disappointments, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” Romans 8
