Oh My God!! The Holy Spirit…thank you for Him!
I have an incredible walk in the Lord. I have an incredible relationship with God. I love Him so much. I thank God for His Holy Spirit and I thank Jesus for making all this possible.
You see…I was born bad to the bone. I was a worm, a retched soul. My parents kept mentioning the name of God and Jesus to me as a child. They took me to church and I learned more about God and Jesus. The Holy Spirit sent by God… was there to hover over me and whisper to my heart and mind the names of Jesus and God.
This is why the names of God are so important! With the knowledge and power of those names and the drawing of the Holy Spirit…this is what confirmed who God was in my heart mind and spirit man. Then one day the Spirit of God led me to watch Billy Graham on our black and white TV and at the age of about 13 year old…I accepted Jesus into my life. The Holy Spirit opened my eyes that day. My eyes were opened to the reality of God, but my spirit was not open to completely surrendering myself to Him until 19 years later. That’s when the Holy Spirit finished the task of completely winning me over 100% for the Lord. From that day on the Holy Spirit is in control of my life and Jesus Christ is the head of my life.
After all of this I wanted to know every single thing about God so I dug into the bible for information. This Scripture verse had a big impact on my prayer life and my relationship with the Lord:
1 Corinthians 2:10,11 these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.
The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
When I read this I knew this was the way I was going to get to know God. So I closed my eyes…and talked to God about 8 hours day for 7 years straight. I told God to show me everything He could that was humanly possible to know about Him. I wanted to know what He was doing, how He was feeling, His favorite color…just everything about Him. He said He would never do anything to make me afraid of Him or His Holy spirit. I’ve been on a great adventure with God. I gave myself over to His will and the Holy Spirit took me over and shown me incredible visions and told me incredible things about God.
I’ve had awesome experiences under the power of the Holy Spirit. I tell you this not to brag or so you can say crazy things like…ooh, she’s so anointed. I am nothing without God’s Holy Spirit in me. It’s all been for a purpose…to glorify God. I opened myself up to Him fully…so He came in. I’m a servant of the Most High and everything in my life is to glorify God and lift up the name of Jesus. I am a decreased individual! I am less and the Lord is more in my life.
I know some people are scared of the Holy Spirit. If you are a born again Christian…the Holy Spirit is already living inside of you. But you can also be filled with Him. He will not do anything you don’t want Him to. God’s Holy Spirit is very gentle because God is sensitive to our feelings and so is His Spirit.
God is in constant communion with me through His Holy spirit and all I can say here is…OH MY GOD!!! I can be in touch with the most holy and power being in the whole universe anytime I want!!!! OH MY GOD!!!!
When I try to explain the greatness of God to people who are not a Christian…they don’t get it. It’s a mystery to them. The Holy Spirit of God is trying to speak to their heart about Jesus and His Father…but there is doubt, fear and rebelliousness and they shut their heart and minds down to His call. But the Holy Spirit of God keeps trying to reveal Jesus to them. Then one day after many attempts they are ready and they open their heart to Him. They see their need for Him and they want to be cleansed and spiritually healed. They want forgiveness. They need love. They need God. Once God gets in there…He begins the deeper life changing work.
The Holy Spirit is the third person in the trinity and does His job in the new believers life. The Holy Spirit reveals the baby Christian with the milk of God’s word as he reads it and gives gentle little cleansing baths. He fights the enemy’s attempts to pull the new Christian back into their old life and gives this baby a lot of invisible hugs and kisses from the Lord so He knows He’s loved. As the baby grows, the Holy Spirit is constantly helping the child mature and He teaches Him the things of God. The Holy Spirit does so much for us Christians and He does all of this throughout our whole lives… until it’s time for us to go our home in heaven. OH MY GOD….YOUR HOLY SPIRIT!!!!
Do you understand how much He is doing for you? Do you want to be filled by Him? Do you want Him to take over your life and guide you? If you are one of those who don’t know what to make of the Holy Spirit…I tell you He’s already at work in you so why not let Him have more power and authority in your life. If a doctor said…I have a pill that can solve all your problems and make you better than new… you would take it. The Holy Spirit is a million times better than that for you. Be filled with Him.
You say how can I be filled?
- Ask God to fill you.
- Have a receptive heart and Mind.
- Expect the infilling.
- Have the right motive…which is to know or walk with God.
- Spend time privately talking with God.
- Have no fear about God and His Holy Spirit.
- Desire His love, His blessing and His Spirit.
Why should you live with half of your blessing when we have the fullness of God for now in this life. Take full advantage of all of what God has for you. Life is difficult at times and we need all of God. God is not only there for the bad times…but the Holy Spirit of God can bless you with so much JOY in your spirit. The Holy Spirit of God reveals God’s happy side too. God is funny, sensitive, compassionate, affectionate and joyful. God showed me this side of Him in my prayer times with Him.. I could go on and on in telling all the great and amazing things about the Holy Spirit…but my blog post is getting to long. I have so much to share from my heart of my life experiences with Him.
Have you ever said…Oh I want to know God more?…… the…HOLY SPIRIT……IS THE WAY TO….KNOW GOD MORE!
