“To another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues” (1 Corinthians 12:10-11).
The Spirit of God moves where He will and does what needs to be done for the faithful. The Spirit works in and through those who are willing to come into the Christ-life that is granted by grace. Come then into the life to which you were initiated through your baptism that the Spirit may work in you that which is well pleasing in the Father’s sight.
Holy Spirit, You are with me to guide me in all of my ways. Let me not focus upon what You do but upon the truth that You are working in me. Guide me according to Your goodness to see that in You alone is all the hope we need. Do as You will, for You are God and I am called as Your servant. Guide me and keep me from the temptation to think that it is the other way round.
Holy Spirit, You know what is needed not only for me, but for those who are around me. Lead me in Your goodness to see that in You alone is the hope for guiding me and those who live by faith. Teach me to be willing to submit to Your prompting that no matter what You choose to do through me I would rejoice and be glad to be a part of Your kingdom. Guide me as I need to be guided and let me give thanks for Your influence in my life. Amen.
