John 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
The scripture above did not say He must increase, but I must decrease for 2 hours, 8 hours, or 2 years.
John 3:30 stated, He meaning Jesus Christ must INCREASE, but I (In the flesh) must decrease.
Meaning that you and I must let go of self (Me, My, Mine) daily and let the Holy Spirit guide our thoughts and actions. We should not lean unto our own understanding. We must demand this life choice of “decreasing” and Christ increasing through us, to become our lifestyle.
God says in
To put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
Has a voice ever told you something as simple as, “Pick that ball up off the floor” BUT you don’t listen, and just walk right past it? Then 3 hours later you walk down the same hall, in the dark and do not see that very same ball. You step right on the ball and hurt yourself? This exact scenario may not be yours, but the concept is I’m sure.
The Holy Spirit will guide us through the simplest to the most major situations in life. May you surrender today, to the guidance of the Holy Spirit! I believe if we LISTEN to this voice and ACT upon its requests every time, we would lead much better lives.
The great Harriet Tubman could not read or write but was guided by the Holy Spirit. Many of you have heard the phrase “The Underground Railroad” in relation to Harriet Tubman.
The way true history is not taught in school and is often greatly “decreased” inside school textbooks, you may begin to think of the “Underground Railroad” as a bunch of slave niggas rolling downhill in a wooden basket through an underground tunnel towards freedom….Not true.
The Underground Railroad was a network of antislavery activists and safe houses which was above ground. The Holy Spirit guided Harriet Tubman to these safe houses of antislavery activists, with some activists wondering how she found them and others stating that “We were expecting you”. SIDENOTE: These Anti Slavery Activists were White Folks! Harriet Tubman had no map of the safe house locations, but only G.P.S….God’s Positioning System also known as The Holy Spirit.

May today be the day that you and I decrease and allow God the Father, The Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit to Increase as we surrender wholeheartedly to its guidance.
God Bless You and Keep You.
