It wasn’t the first day I would be looking for my calculator, and even on this day, it wasnt the first time I would be searching for it. I urgently needed my calculator. I was tired of using my phone to calculate figures. ‘Where could it be?’ I asked myself. I combed through the house beginning from my room, to my mom’s room (although i knew there was no way it was going to be there), to my brothers’ room, my little library. Still no sign of a calculator. Once again, I searched all my bags and still saw nothing. I went to my mom’s room again. This time, i was fed up. I sunk my neck, made a pleading face and said, ‘Please Holy Spirit, please show me where my calculator is. Please.’ And then i walked back to my room. On entering my room, I was about moving in the direction of my bags again but then I diverted to my reading table and my eyes wanted to go somewhere else when suddenly it just went to my pencil case on one of the compartments of the table. Then were my eyes ‘opened’ to see through the prints on the somewhat transparent pencil case and lo and behold, my calculator was right inside. I took it out and immediately lay on the floor and began thanking the Holy Spirit and the entire Godhead. I was so happy Ive found my calculator.
Why didnt I see it all this while? Though it was in my pencil case and staring at me the whole time. It was looking too flat and I thought it was some papers that were in it. I realised that it was that simple call/prayer for help made to the Holy Spirit that made the difference. I couldnt have seen it on my own. Nothing would have made me touch that pencil case if not for the Holy Spirit. That is just one of the many experiences I have had trying to figure things out by myself to no avail and then calling on Him and He made it all so easy.
Im glad I got Him. Most times, we just leave Him idle when He is actually meant to be working- helping us. We need to ask Him in our everyday lives and be very intentional about it. He is the perfect gift to mankind and im glad to reckon with Him. Truth is, if technology or education or civilisation was indeed all we needed to live a better, more meaningfull and fulfilling life here on earth, God would have given us that since Jesus was leaving this world. But He knew that the Holy spirit is just the perfect gift we need to live life easily and He gave Him to us right from that moment. And those who have let Him lead them in their life’s journey have had no regrets whatsoever and have enjoyed every step of the way. Of a truth, He has been an ever present helper at all times of need and He makes life sweet.
Do you desire to have a better, sweeter and easier life? One where you can smile through the entire journey? The Holy Spirit is just the right person you need on your boat as you sail this sea of life. Hi-technology, internet or education wont do you too much good but He will. Its guaranteed. Invite him today to be your comforter and helper and make sure you communicate frequently with Him. Even when you think He wont come through, He will. He never fails.
