Apostle Grace Lubega
John 14:26 (KJV); But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
It is an indisputable fact that life is consistently making demands on us. The more responsibility you are entrusted with, the more this truth becomes a reality.
The question that arises then is, how do you balance work and ministry, marriage and ministry, parenting and ministry, service to God and a consistent life of communion?
You must understand that life as a new creature in Christ is dictated by two worlds. The world of the flesh and the world of the Spirit.
In Galatians 5:16 AMP, the Bible says, “…walk habitually in the [Holy] Spirit [seek Him and be responsive to His guidance] …’
The Holy Spirit is our helper. Often times, when a Christian is overwhelmed by responsibility and feels the need to quit, it is because he or she forgot the helper and is conducting his life outside His world.
The Holy Spirit will teach you how to serve God but remain connected to Him daily; He will give you the grace to raise children and still give your time for the gospel; He alone can enable you balance formal employment and ministry to Him.
In Philippians 4:13, the Lord’s assurance is that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. He meant it. Your part is to make Him your habit and as you do, the different puzzles of your life will fall neatly into place.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The Holy Spirit will teach you how to serve God but remain connected to Him daily; He will give you the grace to raise children and still give your time for the gospel; He alone can enable you balance formal employment and ministry to Him.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this Word. Thank You for the precious gift of Your Spirit, my strength, lifter of my head, fountain of all grace and the guide of my life. I look to Him because He is my ability; He alone keeps me on the paths of purpose regardless of the demands of life. I yield to Him in all things and acknowledge Him in all my ways, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
