Sharon clarifies that wanting something, and promise keeping are not the same thing – God’s promises are kept, but not everything we want we get. This passage has caused such dissention and argument regards the way God fulfils his promised Holy Spirit in our lives, and the answer is that when we assume a particular form or framework, we limit God. The reality is God will keep his promise in a myriad of ways & experiences, because we are all unique, and we all need to be equipped for the role he would have for us to do. As a result, we should go back to the process written on the banner from last week – Stop and know who God is, Wait for the promise of his Spirit, daily asking for his presence in our lives, Go in do the variety of things God has equipped us to participate in, in giving us himself.
