Devotional 6-10-11

Come Spirit Come!

Who can see the night sky in all of it’s starry glory or the awakening of the earth after the dead of winter and not believe in God? Every day brings new discoveries from the unexplored depths of land and sea. The possibilities and healing miracles seem only to be limited by mans ability to perceive. Science is marvelous and amazing. But what is science if not God’s miraculous plan? Man is a key part of God’s plan. We are all part of a bigger picture. Each of us is a small part of a bigger plan than any of us can imagine.

Each of us is a unique creation of God, each with our own special talents, abilities and gifts. Sometimes we are aware of our talents and abilities, but sometimes God calls us to step out of our comfort zones. He asks us to do things we can’t imagine doing. But, He doesn’t ask us to do them alone. When God calls us to take that leap of faith out of our comfort zone into His great cosmos, know that He has also given us the Holy Spirit to sustain us and give us the inner strength to accomplish whatever He is asking.

Ten days after Jesus ascended to heaven He sent the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit came and turned the disciples into apostles. A disciple is a follower and a learner. Is that not what we are? God uses each of us. We don’t have to be perfect or brilliant. We only have to be willing. Peter denied Jesus 3 times, yet God forgave Peter and sent the Holy Spirit to turn him into an apostle--a messenger, a missionary. God will do the same for each of us, if we open ourselves up to Him and the opportunities He has for each of us to use the unique talents He has given us. Open yourself up to God, be a part of His amazing plan!
