Our two year old grandson is at the “I can do it” stage. Whatever it is he wants to do it by himself. He is doing well with a number of things, but his “I can do it” still needs guidance. But, you know, that is a lesson for life. We should have the spirit of wanting try, to figure out a problem, to do the best we can at a task. Yet, we all need guidance. God, as our gracious Father, gives us that guidance by the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. A week ago we celebrated the Festival of Pentecost, and yesterday the Holy Trinity. God has revealed Himself as the total provision for our life, the Creator, the Redeemer, and the Sanctifier. In His Word and by the presence of His Spirit, God gives us the guidance and strength we need. What he seeks is a humble and teachable heart. This is a lesson our little grandson will learn over time. It is a hard one that keeps coming up throughout life. But in Christ, and by the presence of His Spirit, we can do it.
