This morning I want to complete a message I felt was only partly done yesterday. I mentioned about the verses II Corinthians 12:9-10 which state in part, “…When you are weak, my power is made perfect in you….” I mentioned that I’ve learned over time this verse references my spirit. My dad use to say that he needed to kill that spirit of mine. He’d reference to breaking the spirit of a horse so it obeys man. When I was a young boy I didn’t even know what he was talking about. As I got into my early teens I’d think, “I will do what you want but I will still be who I am!” I wold steel myself to be better than him.
Today I know that my spirit is strong and will always likely be that way. However, realizing I am not battling dad, I’m stifling The Holy Spirit’s use of me humbles me and I want to surrender this strong spirit recognizing this strength is the wrong kind.
Today is day 2 of surrendering my spirit to be replaced with The Holy Spirit. It is most humbling recognizing how long The Holy Spirit has patiently waited for me to finally grasp this message. How I love Him and thank Him!
