My friend, Robin Storch, said something that was pretty life-changing for me recently. For real! Life-changing! She was sharing something God had showed her, but followed it up with, “But it’s not my job to convince him of anything.”
I know. It sounds simple. But, I find that whenever God shows me something about someone or something, I always feel compelled to convince the other party, usually my husband, to step forward in that direction. After all, God told me so. Shouldn’t he trust the voice of the Father in my life? But, in reality, it’s not my job to convince him or anyone of what God tells me.
Because, I’m not the Holy Spirit. But, I do play a good one. Okay, I don’t. But, I like to think I do.
I can only share my heart, and leave it. I have to trust God to show Kris or whomever this concerns when HE is ready.
So, that is it.
It’s not my job to convince someone else of something God shows me.
He’s God. I’m not. I’ll let Him do His thing.
He’s better at it.
Do you ever try to be the Holy Spirit?
