Live it.

It was years ago when a Indian preacher made his way to Memphis to attend a Promise Keepers conference. A friend of mine had the privilege to sit by him in the stadium and provided his own house for the man to stay. I was introduced to the lowly preacher at church and have never forgotten someone asking the man where he got his education. He smiled and said his teacher was the Holy Spirit. The question was re-asked thinking the preacher didn't understand it. When it was realized that he did understand and was proud of his response, I could see the wheels turning in the head of the seminarian. He proposed giving the poor preacher a "real" education and I was embarrassed by the suggestion. I've found the Holy Spirit's education is far above anything men can offer.

Pray it.

There's nothing men can say to equal or diminish what You say, Holy Spirit.
