The blessings of the Holy Spirit
The blessings of the Holy Spirit
As recorded in this verse, it is not by power not by might but the spirit of the Lord is able to complete all the things in our lives. People around us might have some predictions or forecast concerning the new year but when we when we submit ourselves into the hands of the Holy Ghost, he will make everything possible. This is the time of the Holy Spirit and also the time of revival. These were the days where the spirit of the Lord will bring in a revival on youngsters. Today, let us meditate on the blessings we receive when the Holy Spirit takes in charge of our lives.
Here we see the spirit of the Lord works to build our hopes. When we entered this year with a lot of hopes. When we put our hopes on the Lord, the Holy Spirit will strengthen our hope. But where does our hope come from? Are our hopes based out of our worldly assets or traditions? We read in Romans 15:4 ‘’ We the children of God should have our hopes based on the word of the Lord. It is by the perseverance and encouragement of the scriptures our hopes are formed. We see the hope comes from the word of the Lord and was inspired by the spirit. When we do not read and mediate the word of the Lord, we will be hopeless. The Lord God expects his children to adhere to the words of the Lord in the scripture. In Ephesians 1:14 ‘’ Having believed by listening to the message of truth, we have been sealed for eternity. Our very future has been sealed and it is in the hands of the Holy Spirit. When the Lord seals our future it is a seal of authority. This seal will protect us from all evil traps and hindrances in our lives. Nothing can stop us from moving forward when are lives are sealed by the Lord.
In the above passage we see the Holy Spirit sanctifies us. The Spirit will help us to lead a holy life. Worldly people are living their lives in their own fashion and they do not have any willingness to be sanctified. But we the children of God must lead a Holy life by offering ourselves as a sacrifice. Only when we sacrifice ourselves, we will be sanctified. As we read in Isaiah 53:7 ‘’ Our Lord Jesus had already set us an example by submitting his own life to the purpose of the father God. Even in our lives, we need to live a life of submission. As recorded in Revelation 22:11 ‘’ we should continue to lead a Holy life. The Holy Spirit is given to those who need to be made holy. Let us not say I am leading a Holy life but let us strive to be holy every single day. There is no finish line to holiness, it is profound. We read in I Corinthians 1:2 ‘’ Here the Holy Spirit sanctifies the gentile church as an acceptable sacrifice to the Lord.
Here we see the spirit of the Lord testifies us. The Holy Spirit knows our hearts and bears witness concerning us. We read in John 2:25 ‘’ The Holy Spirit knows who we are internally. The Spirit of the Lord knows our thoughts and it will testify us. Holy Spirit has to testify along with us concerning our inner relationship with the Lord. We need to live a life which earns a good testimony. In Roman culture, when a child is adopted, it warrants seven authoritative witnesses to be present. Same way, the Holy Spirit should testify that we are the children of the Lord and walk as the children of God. Amen.
