What do we do when the adversity life brings our way is overwhelming? Where do we turn when we are flooded with fear, uncertainty, and anxiety? Our answer was provided to us by God through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice. Our answer is the 3rd head of the Trinity – The Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is the only being on earth who perfectly knows the will, heart, and plans of God. He lives within us as is our personal and divine guide. We have to recognize His presence in our lives as believers and lean into His guidance – knowing the will of God perfectly means He will never guide you into plans that are not of the Lord!
The Holy Spirit will never lead us in a prayer that the Lord refuses to answer. When we lean into the Holy Spirit’s guidance, we may not know what to pray, where to go, or how to accomplish what He is leading us to, but we can confidently follow Him knowing it will lead to fruition and ultimately God’s glory.
In closing, what are you full of? Are you full of fear and anxiety as many are in our current day and age? Or are you full of the Holy Spirit? Are you leaning into Him so much that His presence dissipates the fear, uncertainty, and anxiety that may have existed before? If not, you’re not, consider doing so – Jesus Christ died on the cross to give us this opportunity and bridge to the Father!
