“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” John 14:26

Since my daughter has grown into a “dog fan,” we have gotten into the habit of watching dog shows on television. I began to notice that some of the dogs were “handled” by people other than their owners. In fact, there are professional handlers for hire, who may have several “clients” in any given show. Some dogs have three different people – their breeder, their owner, and their handler – responsible for their success.

I began to think about God and how He is all three to us: He is our creator (breeder); Jesus redeemed us and became our Savior (owner); and the Holy Spirit teaches and guides us (handler). He is very hands-on and invested in our success. He has provided everything we need to make it – it’s up to us to be teachable and take advantage of His guidance.

God has given us the tools we need. Will you let Him use them in your life today?
