Have you ever felt like a superhero? After recently completing a six week Bible study session about the power of the Holy Spirit and starting a new session about everyday miracles, I am beginning to see just how much the Holy Spirit moves us to have the power to do things for others. You can have superhero powers …read on to see how you just might be someone’s miracle today.
Most all of us have prayed for a miracle in our lives at some point. When we pray for these miracles they are often for something we need God to do in our lives or in the life of a loved one. Have you ever prayed for the Holy Spirit to guide you through your day instead of only asking for miracles for yourself?
My husband and I have many instances we could write about where we have started off our day for one purpose, and the Holy Spirit has diverted us, moving us to stop and help someone on the side of the road for many reasons: to give a ride to someone who has needed to get to a medical appointment, to assist someone obviously struggling to get a tire changed or put air in their tires, to provide food for someone who was homeless or in need. There are many other things that I could list here, however, the point I’m trying to make is we ALL need to open our eyes every day as we go out into the world. We should be observant of those in need on our travels. The Holy Spirit helps us to do this if we pray for His guidance each morning and give Him control.
Bible verse John 16:5-16 tells us that Jesus had to go away so he could send the “Advocate” – the “Spirit of Truth” to help guide us all and 2 Timothy 1:6-7 says that He gives us the spirit of power, love and self-discipline. What an amazing gift He has given us! Each and every one of us has the power to be someone’s miracle if only we would allow the Holy Spirit to continually guide us in our efforts. We must let the Holy Spirit live in our hearts and penetrate to our core. We must let Him illuminate the words of scripture for us as only He can do. The Holy Spirit will help us in our weakness and He will be our strength.
Once we begin to allow the Holy Spirit to move in our hearts, His power in us will become contagious to those around us. If you never have prayed for guidance, I ask you to try trusting in the Holy Spirit and you will see what I mean. Once His spirit lives in your heart, you will begin to see those around you noticing a change in you and they will have a strong desire to have whatever it is that you have attained. Most will not be able to pinpoint this gift of the Holy Spirit in you, but it will shine through to those around you.
Remember as you set out today, you just might be someone’s miracle if you allow the Holy Spirit to give you His superhero powers!
Have a blessed day!
