For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
1 Corinthians 2:10 NASB
Jesus said it was better for us if He went away. Then the Father would send the Helper.
How would that be better? Jesus healed the sick, raised the dead, encouraged people… Because the Helper isn’t any ordinary helper, it is the Holy Spirit, God Himself inside of us. And the Holy Spirit has come to empower all believers to live for the Lord in this world!
You can’t do it on your own. We were never made to do it on our own. We were made to live in commune with God. We can do that through the power of the Holy Spirit!
The Holy Spirit doesn’t come in and force Himself on us. You have to spend time with the Holy Spirit. You need to draw close to God
Nothing will ever substitute… again… nothing will ever substitute for reading the Word of God, praying and seeking Him. That is how we draw close to God, know what the Holy Spirit is saying to us and learn how to live a victorious life!
If you are willing to get rid of some of the junk in your life, and replace it with getting close to God, the implications are eternal!
Lord, thank You for the Holy Spirit. Help us to stay sensitive to the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit, that we might be people who are found that trust and obey You.
