Ephesians 2:10 NIV
Our fixed attitude must always be “Lord, show me Your plan”. Then when we know what God desires, to do it! When we say yes to God, He imparts the ability we lack to perform His will. Note, the Lord doesn’t impart His ability first, then call us. No, He calls us, and as we step out in faith and obey Him, He imparts His ability.
The Bible says, “walk worthy of the calling with which you were called” (Ephesians 4:1). This word “walk” does not refer to some sort of meandering stroll. It means to stay in step with the Lord, to catch the beat of the Holy Spirit, and to move precisely as He moves. When God acts, we act. When God pauses, we pause. We must never think we can compartmentalise our life to the point where we say, “In this category, in this season, in this circumstance, I am operating on my own. In this other category, or season, or circumstance, I am operating according to the power of the Holy Spirit within me.” The Holy Spirit does not come and go from our lives. He is always with us! “In Him we live, and move, and have our being” (Acts 17:28).
Once you begin to walk to the rhythm of the Holy Spirit, nothing is going to matter as much to you as keeping pace with Him. You will find that the direction He takes you in is always the right direction, His timing is always the right timing, and the results you get are always the right results.
