Does your life ever feel like you're pushing the ocean instead of riding the wave? It doesn't have to be that way.
Imagine for a moment you're a surfer plummeting down a massive wave. It is the ultimate rush! If you stay on the face of the wave its incredible power thrusts you forward at exhilarating speeds.
Far too many of us try to live the Christian life on our own effort. We are attempting to push the ocean as we paddle with all our might and we're exhausted.
We miss out on the total thrill of riding the wave of God's Spirit, allowing His power to thrust us forward.
To ride the wave we must learn to trust God to live through us by the limitless power of His Spirit. Jesus said in Acts 1:8, "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you." That's awesome power! That's true exhileration! That's the Spirit-filled life.
Quit paddling. Start riding!
Yours for making God the issue,
