My Edition or God’s . . .

My Edition or God’s . . .

Several years ago there was a series on TV called Early Edition. Every morning the main character—played by a handsome young man—opened his front door and found tomorrow’s paper on his door step. His job was to read the paper and prevent all of the tragedies reported there from actually happening.

 

Interesting premise. I only saw it a few times, but I loved the show. The thought that someone could make that much of a difference intrigued me. Besides, I’m a happily-ever-after sort of person.

 

Imagine! What if I could move through life confident in the knowledge that what I am doing is the right thing, the thing that will make a difference in the lives of those with whom I come in contact. What if . . .

 

But wait a minute! He had a paper, magically delivered to him. Incredible and obviously impossible.  But, what about me? I have . . . gasp. Deep breath. No way!

 

I have the Holy Spirit living in me. I have the promise of God that this power is available to me if I’ll listen to the Spirit and follow His prompting. I don’t even need the paper. I just need a willing heart totally surrendered to the Holy Spirit.bible-1149924_1280

Just. But, that’s the kicker isn’t it? We spend so much of our life with the attitude of a toddler—“I can do it myself”—and miss the opportunity of a lifetime. What if I was totally surrendered and in-tune to the Holy Spirit’s leading in my life? What would He do with me?

Imagine . . .
