Our boys crack me up! Awhile back, they discovered on their Super Mario Bro’s game that there is a mode called “Super Guide” in which the computer takes over and completes a course perfectly without any mistakes. At any point, they can take back over from Super Guide and keep playing themselves.
So, they do what they can do on the game and then hand it off to the Super Guide to handle what they can’t. In fact, those crazy guys will let the Super Guide play an entire level, get to the end, and then they take control back and claim the flag at the end to complete the course.
About the time I begin to think that isn’t really fair, I also begin to think… isn’t that what God does for us? Didn’t Jesus say that He would ask the Father, and the Father would send us the Holy Spirit to be a “Super Guide” who would help us through all the difficulties of life?
So often, having done what I can do and facing something I cannot seem to accomplish on my own, I turn to my Super Guide and ask Him to get me through to complete that leg of my course. And while He does all the work, He let’s me claim the victory flag. It may look like I’ve done it, but really He did all the heavy lifting.
I’m glad I have the Holy Spirit as my Super Guide. I couldn’t do this life on my own successfully. Today, I just want to take this moment to give Him the credit for overcoming all my obstacles, defeating my opposition and making me a winner.
If you look at your life today and find yourself struggling to overcome, why not ask the ultimate Super Guide to help you succeed as well? He knows how to help you win in life!
