In my person I am working on week seven of fifty-three weeks of rebuilding biblical foundations: A year long study of Genesis 1. But in my spirit it’s already done! This week our Key Word is SPIRIT and know I have never sat down to write about the working of the Holy Spirit in this my one life but I’ve shared a many life stories of his movements over the years with folks, family, friends and foes.
Many folks, friends and foes are forever seated on the bandwagon of MYSTICS and MAGIC in regards to the Holy Spirit but this black girl sits with the MASTER until HE molds and makes my crooked paths straight.
I know the word MASTER makes many of you and maybe even me think back to a time when our ancestors were slaves. I get it! But what we need to know and fully understand for most black women and a few white women, that's is exactly where and when it all started. The it I'm speaking of is the relational comforts some folks are privileged to enjoy and other folks only dream of.
It is my supposition that the black woman's relational priority with the slave master was the very beginning of the black woman's relational priority with the MASTER.
When asked to do a certain thing Simon refers to Jesus as MASTER!
And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. Luke 5:5
Due Anti-literacy laws in these United States of America, over time black people developed a unique dependency on The Holy Ghost who is also The person of The Holy Spirit!
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
It ain't MYSTICS or MAGIC but a healthy regard for The MASTER Gardener.
Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east in Eden. — Genesis 2:8
It ain't MYSTICS or MAGIC but relational priority with the MASTER.
