📖: John 16:1-15
The Holy Spirit is indeed a living Personality. The executive power of God and executes the Will o f God on earth. In our Christians journey, no believer can possibly live without being empowered by the Holy Spirit. Jesus said to His disciples, “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come” (John 16:13). When we are empowered by the Holy Spirit, we will speak His Word with boldness and we will have Christ-like character; “The fruit of the Spirit as it is written in Galatians 5:22-23.
There are different ways and forms in which the Holy Spirit demonstrates His power and authority in the affairs of men. The Bible states the symbols of the Holy Spirit as follows: Dove (Matthew 3:16), Water (Zechariah 14:8), Oil (1 Samuel 16:13), Wind Genesis 8:1; John 3:8). The Spirit of God “like the wind, is invisible, immaterial and powerful”, Fire (Acts 2:3), Dew (Hosea 14:5), Seal (Ephesians 1:13); The Gifts (Acts 2:38). God desires us to have deep and close relationship with Him, He wants us to know Him personally, know Him in Spirit and in truth. God wants us to know Him as a person who has feelings and wants attention. If we don’t have time for God, He will not have time for us. God talks to us through His Spirit and His Word and we to commune with God through our relationship with Him, praise and worship, thanksgiving and prayers – our quiet time with Him daily.
The Holy Spirit is to guide us from our sinful nature, as it is written in Luke 12:15 “Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” Don’t allow the spirit of coveteousness take control of us, rather, let the Holy Spirit take control of our hearts. The most important thing in the journey of our life is to have the proper blueprint of our destiny. We cannot know or have the proper blueprint except we have the Holy Spirit dwelling inside of us to guide and lead us through the journey of life. When the Holy Spirit directs us, we will be able to seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and every other things will be added unto us (Matthew 6:33). Let us be determined TODAY, and have a deep belief of and in the HOLY SPIRIT, open our heart for the Holy Spirit to dwell in us and take absolute control of us. With the Holy Spirit dwelling in us, we will be able to develop Christ- like character and be heavenly bound. For those of us that have not surrender their lives to Jesus, do so now, allow the Holy Spirit dwell in us and let us fix our eyes on Jesus Christ, the “Giver of life”. Tomorrow might be too late. DO IT NOW! Pray this prayer, In the name of Jesus, Lord Jesus I repent of my sins, come into my heart I make You my Lord and Saviour, in Jesus’ name. Amen. Stay connected! Stay focused! Stay blessed! Shalom!!!
