There’s an old story of a church where the visiting preacher failed to turn up. The Minister was seriously unprepared but felt that he ought to preach. He stood up…
” Today I will have to rely on the Holy Spirit for my sermon. Next week I hope to do better.”
I think I know what he meant. But I also know that many of us would have to admit that we work like that.
We work in our own strength, rely on our experience and hope for the best. When our resources fail we rely on God.
He’s gracious enough not to let us down. But how different would your life be if you started with the Holy Spirit and he added your skill and experience to what he has in mind?
Be blessed, be a blessing.
