Living the Word
Is the Holy Spirit able to direct every moment of our lives? I hope your shaking your head yes. Do we know He can do a better job leading and guiding our life than we can? Again, that's a yes. I have found there are a lot of things that we know we need to do, but we don't do. Yielding my life to the Spirit's control is one of those things. Its a journey and it takes time, but its worth every step. Paul says we need to stand ready, positioned, expectant, and willing to sacrifice, yield, and surrender our daily, moment by moment life in a whole and complete and acceptable way to our Lord (Stephen's amplified version of Rom. 12:1). The first step in the journey is to ask the Holy Spirit for His help. Ask Him to help you let go. Ask Him to help you take the next step, and the one after that, and the one after that. That's how we live in His Word.
