The Role of Holy Spirit In Your Life – He Fills You…

Acts 1:4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

THOUGHT: Jesus said that they should wait for the promise of the Father, which was to fill them with His Holy Spirit. Just like the disciples, you receive the Spirit’s Indwelling the moment you accept Jesus Christ as Savior. You receive the Spirit’s Infilling when you are obedient and when you ask for Him (See Acts 5:32 & Luke 11:13). The infilling gives you power to live a Godly life and power to open your mouth to tell others what Christ has done for you.

PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I sincerely believe in You, and in Your saving power. Please forgive me of my sins. I accept Your gift of Salvation. However, my life is up and down and right now and I do not represent You as I should. I need this Infilling of Your Spirit to give me the power to live a Godly life every day. I also need Your power to witness, in speaking clearly and boldly about what You have done for me. Because Your Word says this gift is for me, I receive it today, by faith, as I pray this prayer. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

The Role of the Holy Spirit In Your Life – He Calls You…

Acts 13:2 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.

THOUGHT: The Bible teaches us that God calls us and gives us gifts and talents accordingly as He wills. There are gifts of the Father, gifts of the Son, Jesus Christ and gifts of Holy Spirit. We are given gifts and then called to certain roles and responsibilities. Some seek recognition, titles and activities in larger public roles and calls when they have not practised faithfulness to the first call of God, which is the call to submission, surrender, confession, prayer and faithfulness to Him and to those He has placed you with.

The first call is to allow God to sanctify and mature you as a disciple and follower so that you are prepared to properly represent Him in any and every situation He calls you to encounter. Practicing love, forgiveness, humility and serving those in your midst is the preparation ground for further calls to extend your ministry to new and greater realms. God calls us by His Spirit, and we must sit down and count the cost and make appropriate preparations for the next steps.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive Your call, first to commit my ways to you and to allow Holy Spirit to bring my life into conformity to Your will. After my response is pleasing to You, I will also respond to His guidance to do whatever else You call me to do. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

The Role of the Holy Spirit In Your Life – He Comforts You…

Acts 9:31 Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied. Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

THOUGHT: You may be going through a difficulty right now or may have sometime in the past. Sometimes it is difficult to get past what has happened. Sometimes it seems there is no one there to comfort your hurts. You may be dealing with a range of emotions, such as hurt, shame, fear, anger, feeling unloved, unforgiveness and much more.

People are not always understanding, empathetic, loving or forgiving. But God cares for you and reaches out, not to condemn you, but to comfort you in your affliction and to bring you to a place of peace. His thoughts toward you are thoughts of peace. See Jeremiah 29:11. Reach back to Him from the depths of your heart and by your spirit. Reach out to His Spirit who longs to comfort you this very day and this very hour. Now is the time to put the past to rest and to walk in the mercy, forgiveness, peace, love and joy of the Lord. All of these are gifts He gives freely to you by His Spirit. See more of the Gifts at Galatians 5:22-23

PRAYER: Lord God, Heavenly Father, my heart still hurts after this long time. No one seems to have patience or to understand or care. I have heard that You care for me and have forgiven me already so that all I need to do is to accept You and Your forgiveness today. Today, I accept Your Love, Your Mercy and Your Forgiveness. Please forgive my attitudes and behaviors of the past. I desire to know Your peace, joy, rest and comfort in my life. Please comfort me, O Lord!

Lead me into the path of those of Your followers who are really experiencing Your joy and are able to share it with me. I now realize that I cannot do anything to become more worthy of Your love and nothing I have done makes You love me any less. I receive Your love and blessing and realize that it was always there waiting for me to receive.

Lord God, as You have forgiven me, I too forgive that person and those persons who have hurt me or shamed me in any way. Teach me Your ways! Show me the path that I must take! Give me the strength to face each new day as I live in this new way. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

The Role of the Holy Spirit in Your Life – He Testifies of Jesus

John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: 1 John 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

– See also John 14:26, John 16:13-14

THOUGHT: Holy Spirit will not lead you away from Jesus Christ. He always points you back to God, Jesus Christ and to His Word. You can be sure that when you cultivate a relationship with Him such that you are listening to Him and following His guidance that you will not be led astray. He will guide you into sanctification, into perfect peace and into harmony and conformity to the perfect Will and the Way of God.

PRAYER: Father, I thank You for the gift of Your Son, Jesus Christ and for the gift of Holy Spirit who testifies of Christ. We know that many deceivers are in the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as Your Son. (See 2 John 1:7; 1 John 4:1-5) I thank You for the peace it brings that I can follow the voice of Your Spirit and know for sure that I am saved by Jesus’ Blood, I am being sanctified, I am being led into deeper realms of truth and that I am a blessed child of the Most High God.

The Role of Holy Spirit in Your Life – He Instructs You in the Way to Go…

Acts 8:29 The Holy Spirit said to Philip, “Go over and walk along beside the carriage.”

THOUGHT: God speaks to you by His Holy Spirit to instruct you in the way that you should go. It may be to help another person, as in this Scripture passage, or it may be for your family, or for your own safety or some other benefit. Rest assured that God has already been speaking to guide you and instruct you. Plan to have your spiritual ears opened and tuned, so you can hear the instruction of God by His Holy Spirit.

PRAYER: Lord, I recognize that You are speaking by Your Holy Spirit to show me the way in which I should go. I am open to Your guidance and instruction regarding all matters, whether they have to do with my family, myself or how You wish to use me to help others. Speak Lord, Thy servant heareth. (1 Samuel 3:9-10)

The Role of Holy Spirit In Your Life – He Reveals…

1 Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

THOUGHT: God desires to have fellowship with you, so He reaches out to you. His Holy Spirit is responsible for communicating to you the will and purposes of God. Therefore, He reveals to you the mysteries and secrets of God. Holy Spirit helps you to “know” things that you could not have otherwise known. This is such a blessing to your because He gives you confidence in the Presence, Power, Protection and Provision of God, among so much more.

PRAYER: Lord, help me. I desire to be more open to Your Spirit than I have ever been, so that I can receive the revelation in ways and about things that I have not yet known before. I stand against evil motives and purposes to pervert the gifts of the Spirit and only wish to be used by You and not to use the gifts for my own ends.

The Role of The Holy Spirit in Your Life – He Speaks…

Revelation 2:7a, He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches…

THOUGHT: Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Godhead. He speaks to the Church and to you, to give you God’s guidance on areas that you are pleasing God and areas that you are falling short. Jesus is your Lord and Holy Spirit is the One who testifies of Him. You must maintain open ears and be always seeking to hear what God has to say to you by His Spirit.

PRAYER: Lord, I pray that I not be so consumed by duty, by routine by circumstances or by disobedience, that my ears are closed to what You want me to hear. Speak to me Lord, that I might know and do Your perfect will. I am willing to learn how I can better listen and obey to glorify Your name.

The Role of the Holy Spirit in Your Life – He Teaches You All that You Need and He Brings the Word of God to Your Aid…

John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

THOUGHT: Holy Spirit is the mind, thought and Spirit of God and therefore He will never instruct you in contravention to God’s Word or His Will. As you continue in daily submission, in reading and in study of God’s Word, Holy Spirit will bring appropriate Scriptures to your mind, at opportune times and seasons, as needed to keep you on the right path.

PRAYER: Thank You Holy Spirit for being my teacher and counselor to show me things according to the mind and thinking of God. I submit my life, my thoughts and my decisions to You and endeavor to be ever open and listening to and obeying Your voice and Your guidance. In Jesus name, Amen.

The Role of the Holy Spirit in Your Life – He Convicts You, Guides You and Shows You Things to Come

John 16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

THOUGHT: With Holy Spirit as our guide we should not be caught unawares. If we live circumspectly and close to Holy Spirit, He will guide us into the right path, He will exalt Jesus Christ, and He will point out tests and trials, potentials for trangression and sin in advance, so that we can avoid moving out from the umbrella of God’s protection and care. He will also show us God’s plans, provision, purposes and opportunities so that we will know the right path to take in decision making.

PRAYER: Holy Spirit, You have freedom in my life to reprove me, teach me and show me the things of God. I yield my life to You as an open page, for You to write out the plans and purposes of God for my life and the lives of those I am connected with. In Jesus name. Amen.

The Role of the Holy Spirit in Your Life – He Helps You and Prays for You the Perfect Will of God…

Holy Spirit – He Helps Us and Prays for Us the Perfect Will of God.

Romans 8:26 “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”

THOUGHT: The Word of God is clear about the vital role that Holy Spirit can play and desires to play in your personal life. Do not forget to include Him in your daily walk, prayer and decision making. He is there with you and for you each day. Do not grieve Him, rather acknowledge Him and invite His help and prayers for you as you walk with Him each day.

PRAYER: Holy Spirit, thank You for Your divine presence in my life. Thank You for Your assistance and help in every area. My life is open for Your input and Divine Help. As I open my mouth in my prayer language I know that You are praying for me in ways that agree with God’s purposes and plans and that are best for my life.  I surrender in agreement with Your prayers and with God’s plan and purpose. In Jesus name. Amen.
