The Holy Spirit Is Your Advantage

“Such confidence we have through Christ before God. Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”
– 2 Corinthians 3:4-6 (NIV)

Forecasting is the buzzword in corporate organizations at this time of the year. Data analysis, understanding trends and positioning for the future is a major headache for all organizations small or big, and even for individuals too.

The reason is simply because, in the prevalent competitive world of survival of the fittest, your knowledge base and competence is your competitive advantage.

In Christian life and ministry, which is the business of the kingdom of God, competitive advantage is derived not from cerebral human capital development and training but primarily from the wisdom and the understanding that the Holy Spirit gives! He is the Greatest Teacher ever

John.16:13- But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.

The Christ-follower is competent in handling the complexities of life only as he continually connects himself to this Source. He gains access to Him through a consistent prayer life and daily studying of the life-giving Word of God combined with a life of total obedience to God.

Then since it is established that the spiritual realm controls the physical, shouldn’t we seek to connect to the Father of all Spirits and live?!

If you really want to know what the future holds, if you really want to be competent at life, work and anything at all, then get addicted to the Holy Spirit. He knows all about the future because all is in His hands.
