Now I need tremendous wisdom. There are just some situations that I am encountering where I literally need to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. In and of myself, I do not possess the ability or strength to deal with certain issues. I need God to give me a super natural understanding and a miraculous dose of insight! I have realized that I truly am nothing, and that no matter how many years of experience one may have, or how many similar examples I may have dealt with, I will never be above needing the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit to minister. I know that. Now I just need to depend on Him to give me the words, the understanding, and the ability to speak His words and act out His love.
I desperately wish there were a ministry manual I could consult. I wish there were chapters that referenced each circumstance that I am living right now. I know that is not a possibility, and this is where it becomes imperative for me to be on my knees seeking a higher power's involvement. I need to be reminded that all of these battles are won first in prayer. I tend to make it the last resort, instead of the initial step. I am learning that this is not effective.
