Cycling Downhill

Cycling home from work I met a little boy, perhaps five years old, on his bike going downhill. He had a strained expression in his face, his eyes looked scared and very concentrated and the entire bike was unsteady and his body seemed stiff.
I thought about myself with which ease I handled my bike. Nothing strained about my cycling, save I could have been in a better shape. In contrast to him I have plenty of experience and am a seasoned cyclist.
Then lightning struck and the little boy became an example of me when the Spirit is teaching me a new thing like for instance speaking words of faith concerning things I would like to see happen. I am just as unsteady as that little boy often scared of making mistakes or falling off the “bike”.
But, the point is: The little boy was on the bike! He was “there”! He was doing it!

Can you elaborate any on your comment "speaking words of faith concerning things I would like to see happen".....?
I am believe that I am receiving some instruction in this area also.....

Consider this verse: "I only do what I see my Father is doing." And consider that you are one with the Father just as Jesus was. And read the story about the Centurion and ask yourself which role words play in this story. I work full time as a math teacher so I do not always have time to write lengthy replies to comments on my blogs, but I trust the Spirit will show you and teach you just as He does with me.

Thank you for your input. I will give this some thought.
