“If we are living now by the Holy Spirit's power, let us follow the Holy Spirit's leading in every part of our lives.” - Galatians 5:25

I remember sitting in a parking lot, tired and getting ready to start my day at the Fitness shop. I saw a man in hospital clothes and on crutches. He was coming my way. My flesh tells me to just go inside to work and not worry about that man. The Holy Spirit told me to go over to him and ask if I can help him.

I walked over to him and ask him if he is doing OK? He told me he was hit by a car last night and is homeless. He had no clothes to change into and was hungry. I told him God had spoken to me to come over and help him. I saw tears coming down from his eyes. He told me he prayed to God to send someone his way. We walked to Burgerville and I paid for breakfast and found him a ride to the Goodwill. He told me that God sent him an angel that day.

I am no angel. I was obedient to the Holy Spirit and let God do all the work. It makes me wonder how many times we miss out on God's plans for us to help others.

Prayer: Lord teach us to focus on You. Let the Holy Spirit guide us in our lives everyday. We pray this in Jesus' name. Amen.
