-I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency-
I hope You enjoyed the story I shared with You this week about my lost Train Ticket.
I have an older and much wiser, Cousin who I spoke with Yesterday. She really blessed me…as she shared How God had blessed Her with this Weeks Story/Lesson, “Quit Looking and Start Leaning on The Holy Spirit.”
Her Name is Janet😍
This is Her Funny Story…
Janet sent me a text yesterday, asking me to give her a call…ASAP!! I did…praying that everything was alright. She sounded well when she answered the phone, and as she began to tell me How the Lord had blessed her with the CareBibleStudy Blog.
She told me how she had been searching…and…searching for some very important papers that she had misplaced. She wasn’t sleeping well, because she was worried about getting these documents submitted on time.
She was not having any success finding her lost documents, but she did find herself in a frenzy…frantic and frustrated, as she sat down on the side of the bed at 4 AM!!
She was sitting there on the bed, trying to think of what stone to overturn next…when she said she reached over to pickup her phone, and read this message…’Quit Looking!!’
It was her daily text message from Tam…and as she continued reading the message, it said…
‘And Start Leaning on The Holy Spirit!!’
Suddenly, she realized that she had not been depending on God for ALL of Her ‘Stuff.’
She had been frantically, Flying around her house, wearing her ‘SuperCape’…with the TWO BOLD LETTERS -‘SW’- on her
chest…because she had convinced herself that SHE was ‘Super Woman!!’
She was an independent, self-sufficient, ‘Super’ Christian…saved, filled with the Holy Spirit…and yet, she had not been depending and leaning on Him!!
She realized that she had not been willing to release ALL of Her Cares, Worries, Troubles, and Anxieties to God…and she found herself repenting before the Lord for walking in her own self-sufficiency, instead of leaning on Christ’s Sufficiency.
I think as Christians, sometimes We don’t feel that We need to ask The Holy Spirit to help Us with ALL our stuff…like the things that We ‘believe’ that We are proficient at…You know…The Stuff We Do Well!!
I’ve been rehabbing houses for nearly 20 years now, so when it’s time to paint the walls in a new house, I just put on my SuperCape…and I AM transformed into ‘SuperPainter’…with the ‘SP’ on my chest!!
So I tend to forget to Ask The Holy Spirit to Help Me with my painting job.
As Christians, We’ve been blessed with an abundance of gifts, talents and abilities…and sometimes We forget that those blessings were bestowed on Us Because of God’s Grace, His Divine Blessing and Favor…
And He wants ALL of His Glory!!
But…Of Course…We’re more experienced at taking off Our Capes, when We’re running to the throne because We’ve been beaten up, scarred and broken-down by Life…
But We’ve Got to Learn to practice unsnapping that SuperCape more often…and ask the Holy Spirit for His Help in our Everyday…ALL-Day Lives!!
We can Start by surrendering our Cape to God while doing the little things…like taking a shower and getting dressed.
Then We can move on to Asking The Holy Spirit to equip Us to do the Things that We’ve already been blessed to Do Well- Even Better…and Give Him Glory!!
Then…before You know it…The next time You’re looking for Your shoes, or Your Keys…or even that Lost Earring…
You Will hear Your Helper, the Holy Spirit…whispering to You, saying….
“Don’t Fret…I’m Here…Just Ask Me!!”
So I Blessed God, as I was So Blessed by my Cousin, Janet. I am so pleased that the Lord Blessed Her with the CareBibleStudy Lesson. She said she had ‘Church’ up in Her Bedroom at 4AM…Glorifying and Magnifying God!!
So Please Pray For Janet, as We believe, together…that the Lord is going to continue to Bless Her and Show Her where Her ‘Papers’ are.
Let’s Also Pray that Janet will continue to Rest Her Cape in His ‘CAPE-ability!!’ Lol
I Truly, Believe God is Going to Continue to Amaze Us ALL, together in 2015!!
Remember…God Loves You and So Do I!!
