Lean On Me

Have you ever had that moment where you think “If I get out of this unscathed, it will be a miracle”? Sitting in a restaurant and someone yelled “stop that guy” and before my brain could register time, place and circumstances I stood up and promptly was run over by a guy who registered on the Richter scale the second he stepped out of bed. The only thing I could think of as I bounced off his chest and rolled backwards down the aisle was “what was I thinking?” I, like so many others, have had numerous moments in life when we get into situations and realize we are well over our heads. Some will scream out to the sky hoping for a lightning bolt to fix the problem while others would rely on their own strength or smarts to find a solution. When the going gets tough, the strongest lean on the Holy Spirit for the strength and fortitude to overcome. When the Holy Spirit is on your side, there is nothing that cannot be overcome.

Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good. Romans 8:26-28

I am a strong advocate of the immense power of Holy Spirit and truly believe that our strength comes through Him for He is above all things created and, by the Scripture above, He is making prayer out of our wordless sighs. The details of our lives, the events of our past shape us, our reliance on the Holy Spirit helps us grow in our faith walk and gives us a hope and a strength that is only found in the love of our Lord and Saviour.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6

There is power in the Holy Spirit that is beyond our comprehension and knowledge, and I am sure He has acted in our lives more often than we realize. As we pray in the Spirit, seek out His wisdom and listen to His directions, we might learn to sidestep the great monster that is trying to harm us and not get run over by a set of size seventeen shoes.

We invite you to gather with us at 10:30 a.m. to explore His love and His message for our hearts. The service will be broadcast online (see links below), or you are more than welcome to join us in person at 402 Main Ave. W in Sundre, AB.
