Consider the plus sign and the minus sign.
Plus means positive, and minus means negative.
But look at them in relation to the cross.
The minus sign, the horizontal one – represents us here on Earth.
The vertical line represents Heaven and Holy Spirit.
When you try to do things your own way, you are working in the “minus” realm.
When you invite in the Holy Spirit, you’ve added in the vertical line, and you are in the “plus” category.
Welcome in the power of God, allow God to work in your life, and you are positive. Do it all yourself and you are negative.
Trust that God is in charge and it will all work out the way it should.
