The Holy Spirit is invisible and doesn’t speak in an audible voice. But I will tell you this, He is very present in our lives 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. In other words, all the time, and forever. He sees everything we do and say. He’s there when we watch TV. He’s there when we interact with others. He hears every word that comes out of our mouths. He knows what’s in our heart and mind. He is constantly monitoring us. Not to be noisy but Jesus has assigned Him to us.

I need to keep my mind on you! Help me to do so Holy Spirit!

But are we giving Him any thought throughout our day? I’m going to give you my answer for this question. I know He is there, but I forget that fact daily. I’m very sensitive though to His leadings and voice all day every day. I wish when I first open my eyes in the morning, I could see a form of Him. I wish He would visibly pop up and say to me, “Good morning, Tanya, take my hand and let’s start your day”. But He is silent when I open my eyes. It may feel like I’m living my day on my own, but He is there every second of my day. I try to be careful how I carry myself because I know I represent God. I try to be aware of how I act because I know what the bible says about how I should conduct myself. I really do want to be obedient to my Father God.

You know…God knows all this about my humanness so that is why Jesus sent me and you the Holy Spirit. I’m sure glad He did because as much as I know how I should act, I’m keenly aware of how I might behave if the Holy Spirit wasn’t inside of me. So, I’ll going tell you one thing about myself so you can get an idea. Before I became a committed Christian, I used to curse…you know, the bad words thing. I liked it too because it let me get out the internal aggression and stress verbally. This is wrong!

So now when I feel that way I hold back because the Holy Spirit gives me other options. He helps me to act like Jesus. When Jesus got mad on earth, He knocked over tables, but He didn’t curse. No, I don’t knock tables over LOL! I internalize things, pray, play my gospel music. I may cry. I might talk to my husband so he can pray with me. Eat. Shop. The later things I prefer not to do though. The more I dwell on Jesus, the more peace I find. Sometimes God just pours His Grace on me. Sometimes I hide under the shadow of Gods wings. I’m just being honest here about my walk with Lord.

Through all of life’s daily struggles it’s the Holy Spirit who helps me all day, every single solidary day. I depend on Him and trust Him whether I’m aware of His presence or not. I know He is on the job. I do want to pay Him some mind but to be honest, because He is so silent, I’m not always aware of His presence. But like I said before I do know that He lives in me, and I acknowledge Him when He encourages me to follow God’s word.

There are so many scriptures about the Holy Spirit. I have listed a few of them below if you would like to get a bit of biblical refreshing. Let’s all be cognizant of His presence and try to pay Him some mind. (Hey, I’m first online with my hand up to do this)

For your personal knowledge of what the bible says about the Holy Spirit:

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever.

But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?

And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!

And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.

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.

Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”

And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.

We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.
