Today’s exhortation – Holy Spirit
There are many things we all want from God. such as peace, joy, faith, wealth, health, security, protection etc and Jesus tells us not to worry about these things, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”(Matthew 6:33). What is the Kingdom of God? The bible says, for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. (Romans 14:17). So if the kingdom of God is in The Holy Spirit, then it’s Him we must seek first for all the things we seek to be added to us.
After The Lord Jesus was raised up, He told His disciples, “Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you…when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” (John 16:7, 12-13). The Holy Spirit is the power of God and He helps us do all the things God wants us to do i.e. To pray, forgive, have faith, overcome addictions to porn, drugs, alcohol, etc. He also warns us of dangers ahead and even tells us which roads to take. What He does can’t be quantified because He’s so much more, but He’s who we need if we are to experience Jesus in His fullness. Amen
