Stimulated by the Holy Spirit

Ephesians 5:18-19 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; [19] Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

Eph. 5:18-19 (J.B. Phillips Trans.) Don’t get your stimulus from wine (for there is always a danger of excessive drinking), but let the Spirit stimulate your souls. Express your joy in singing among yourselves psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making music in your hearts for the ears of the Lord!

You can never drink too much of the Holy Spirit!

Proverbs 17:22 (NASB) A joyful heart is good medicine, But a broken spirit dries up the bones.

Broken: Heb. nake’
(naw-kay’) smitten, afflicted, broken, stricken, wounded.

A broken spirit is one’s personhood which has been crushed by life’s difficulties. It is often accompanied by depression (Prov. 15:13; 17:22). Healing such wounded personalities is part of Jesus’ ministry (Lk. 4:18). This good news of salvation was prophesied by Isaiah (Is. 61:1-2). Jesus passed this ministry on to the disciples (Lk. 9:1-2) and ultimately to the entire church (Acts 1:1-2).

Dries: Heb. yabesh
(yaw-bashe’) to wither away.

Bones: Heb. gerem
(gheh’-rem) as a skeleton.

Proverbs 15:30 (NASB) Bright eyes gladden the heart; Good news puts fat on the bones.

I hope the light of my eyes will gladden your heart. Hearing the Gospel will make you strong.

My Confession:

I am filled and stimulated with the Holy Spirit. I speak out in psalms and hymns and make melody in my heart to the Lord. My joyful heart is good medicine and my cheerful mind works healing. The light of my eyes causes others to rejoice. I have a good report. My countenance radiates the joy of the Lord.

God bless you my friend,
