A Resting Wind

When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly a noise like a violent rushing wind came from heaven, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And tongues that looked like fire appeared to them, distributing themselves, and a tongue rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with different tongues, as the Spirit was giving them the ability to speak out. (Acts 2:1-4) 

The Wind moves everything it touches. It moves the waters. It moves the trees. The grasses bend and sway to the rhythm of its melody. I sat and listened to the wind move the fallen leaves of Autumn. I delighted in the crunchy, scraping sound as they yielded to one final dance before Winter.  
I watched as The Winds swirled the leaves around into a spinning Leaf-nado. I was completely enthralled by the WInd’s invisible presence. It is no wonder that the Holy Spirit is introduced in Acts as a Mighty Rushing Wind. .

The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it is coming from and where it is going; so is everyone who has been born of the Spirit.” (John 3:8) 

The Holy Spirit’s work is mysterious and powerful. Yet, so much of His Work brings rest within our souls, even in the midst of great struggle As I have yielded to His handiwork in my life, I have been amazed at His ability to transform this scared, neurotic, and anxiety-driven woman, into someone who is now regularly experiencing the peace that passes understanding. 
(Philippians 4:7) God is so good, to give us His Spirit, a Resting Wind transforming our lives from the inside out. Yield to His Perfect work.
