Throughout His ministry, Jesus relied upon the Holy Spirit to direct Him as He made crucial decisions and faced relentless opposition. If you are a Christian, the same Spirit abides in you. At times you may pray and ask God to send His Spirit “in power.“ That is the only way the Spirit ever comes! More importantly, the Spirit will come in wisdom, bringing the understanding of God‘s ways. You need God‘s wisdom for the decisions you face. Perhaps God has placed you in a position of great responsibility, and you feel overwhelmed by the decisions you must make. It may be in your role as parent, or friend, or leader that you long for the wisdom of God. The same Spirit who enabled Jesus to see through the deceptions of Satan will also guide you through the temptations that confront you. Pray that God will fill you with His Spirit of wisdom so that through the decisions you make you can live your life effectively.
