the exhortation, "Do Not Try To Think Too Much," by Rev. Bill McGinnis


Holy Spirit, Lord be with us,
As we join to give You praise.
Share with us Your loving presence,
Fill us with Your perfect ways.

Everlasting, pure and free;
Let our praise bring joy unto You,
Welcome may it always be.

Dear Lord and Father of mankind,
Forgive our foolish ways!
Reclothe us in our rightful mind,
In purer lives thy service find,
In deeper reverence, praise.

In simple trust like theirs who heard
Beside the Syrian sea
The gracious calling of the Lord,
Let us, like them, without a word,
Rise up and follow thee.

O Sabbath rest by Galilee!
O calm of hills above,
Where Jesus knelt to share with thee
The silence of eternity
Interpreted by love !

With that deep hush subduing all
Our words and works that drown
The tender whisper of thy call,
As noiseless let thy blessing fall
As fell thy manna down.

Drop thy still dews of quietness,
Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress,
And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of thy peace.

Breathe through the heats of our desire
Thy coolness and thy balm;
Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;
Speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
O still, small voice of calm!

Exhortation - "Do Not try To Think Too Much"

Do Not Try To Think Too Much

Holy Spirit is prompting me to tell you this: Do not try to think too
much! Your human mind was designed by Him to help you process information
from the material world, not the spiritual. In spiritual matters, you must
let your conscious mind recede and let your spiritual self (your soul)
join with Him to receive information directly. He is really there, Creator
of the universe, and if you draw near to Him, He will draw near to you.

This is not just a sweet-sounding idea, it is the absolute truth. If you
trust in Him, He will guide you, protect you, lead you, comfort you, sleep
with you, stay with you every moment. Anything you need, He will provide.
If you believe and trust. If not, you are more or less on your own. And
good luck!

Basis in Scripture

"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine
own understanding." (Proverbs 3:5 KJV)

"But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will
send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all
things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you."
(John 14:26 KJV)

"Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you."
(James 4:8a KJV)

"for your Father knoweth what things ye have need
of, before ye ask him." (Matthew 6:8b KJV)

"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit
of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know
them, because they are spiritually discerned." (1 Corinthians
2:14 KJV)

"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you:" (Matthew 7:7 KJV)

I pray the Lord that He will lead your path
Away from the temptations all around.
I pray that when temptation lingers near,
The Lord will lead you not into its reach.
But if temptation grabs you as you pass,
I pray the Lord that you will struggle free.
In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

Blessings to you in Jesus Christ our Lord.
