Bless the Lord #19

“For all Your goodness I will keep on singing Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find…” Matt Redman. These posts are my simple way to cultivate a heart of love and praise. The goal: to list 10,000 of the reasons in my life. Join me if you want.

#19 That I am not the Holy Spirit for others.

In my youth, I tried to reason and give wise counsel to people as I ministered through my gift of encouragement. It would frustrate me when they didn’t adhere to it. Then I realized, only the Holy Spirit can do that work in the heart. When that truth, truly took root in my thinking (because I’ve always known it…) I began to realize how at ease I could be and then pray more for them, rather than just give more advice. It’s the Holy Spirit’s work that needs to happen. His truth has to be enlightened and revealed, not mine.  I bless the Lord for that.
