When God purposed for us to be here on earth He did not want us to do life alone. He created us so that we could do life with the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ was born, introduced a new kingdom, died for us, and was resurrected to heaven. However, he did not leave us here alone. He left us with Him in the form of the Holy Spirit. Having the Holy Spirit in your life is like having Jesus in person. A companion, helper, and confidant that will never let you down.
That is why His word in Zechariah 4:6 says, “It is not by might nor by power but by my spirit.” Meaning life cannot be accomplished to greater levels without the Holy Spirit. You may build something with the intention of finishing. And indeed it may be finished but it will be “dead in its core” if you built it or created it without the help of God through the Holy Spirit. Inevitably it will come crashing down when the harsh forces of the world strike because its foundation is not the one that stands the test of time.
Having the knowledge of the word of God and how God works is important. When you live conscious of the ministry of the Holy Spirit in your life you will have no need of anything because the Holy Spirit helps you to access all that God has made available to you when He purposed for you to come here on earth. The Holy Spirit is God’s answer for getting direction in life.
Whatever you will do will have more than just the power, hand, and style that man can add behind it. But God will have his power behind it. You can accomplish more than you can do alone when the Holy Spirit does it through you. It’s time you reconfigured your life such that He is the center of how, when, and why you do what you do because Jesus is Lord overall!
This means He is not just Lord over people but everything including that which we strive to accomplish in life. How did Moses split the waters? He had a rod in his hand. Yet He never knew that rod could help Him split the water until God revealed to Him that He could stretch forth his hand with the rod and split the waters.
Moses was never trained in water dividing. You may never be trained in how to do something. But the Holy Spirit can show you how to do it such that it beats all methods. He can show you a way that goes beyond the conventional knowledge of how things must be done. And because the Holy Spirit is the one who would have given it to you that is how you will get ahead or introduce something new.
The life we live has so many of these difficult circumstances. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is beyond them all. Beyond your how’s and why’s of what needs to happen to get past them. He is an extraordinary strategist. You can never be hemmed in or limited when you have the Holy Spirit. It cannot happen. Neither can you be overcome by the circumstances of life! It is impossible.
If it so happens at any given time in any given thing that you have been assigned to do. Don’t delay to summon the help of the Holy Spirit for it. Remember Zechariah 4:6. You cannot do it only by your might (strength) nor by your power (intellect, wisdom, knowledge) but by the Holy Spirit who in you is Jesus Christ.
What does life with the Holy Spirit look like?
Our lives may never be any meaningful until we live them in deliberate fellowship with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit in Greek is called Allos Parakletos (Another comforter like me). He is the one that gives you superiority, advantage, insight, and success for your assignments on earth. He is the helper. There is no man here on earth who can help us as much as the Holy Spirit can. Because when we have Jesus Christ and we allow the holy spirit to help us in everything we have been assigned to do, we have all the help we need.
As Jesus promised “But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you.”John 14:26
When you read the bible and don’t understand what you are reading, pray that the Holy Spirit gives you understanding. He will teach you and give you a full understanding of the scriptures. This is why when someone says “I cannot understand the bible”. They need to ask God for understanding. It cannot be understood except by the Holy Spirit.
A true revelation of who Jesus Christ is in your life can only happen by the Holy Spirit giving you revelation. The ministry of the Holy Spirit opens it up and breaks it down so that you can comprehend the word of God at different stages.
Even your life becomes open to you. That which was not clear becomes clearer. You can’t do anything significant without Jesus Christ’s help. Anything of absolute relevance cannot be achieved. Extraordinary results beyond human comprehension will become the order of your life.
Also, your ability, competence, and sufficiency come from God. You are propelled by the power of God at work in you. The power of the Holy Spirit. Such that whatever you lay your hands on there is a rub-off of His supernatural ability. He makes the word of God manifest in your life. Whatsoever He will hear will be made known to you.
Every wilderness will be turned into a fruitful field. If certain things are not working right, invite the Holy Spirit to help you. He will be your advantage to winning. He will comfort you and strengthen you even through situations you do not understand, He will strengthen you, comfort you, He will help you out of it.
Read this: Isaiah 63:1-14. When He leads you there can be no more stumbling. He caused Moses to stretch forth his hand and cause the waters to part and lift. Moses only had a rod in his hand but that rod coupled with God’s voice that spoke to Him gave Him an advantage. That’s why Jesus never left us helpless.
Deuteronomy 29:29 says, “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.”
How true this is. There are things that God can reveal to you that He has not revealed to anybody else. And they can be revealed as a solution to all of the world’s problems in a particular area.
He reveals that which we require to live a wonderful life. The Holy Spirit brings answers to me and you. This is the business of the Holy Spirit. Let Him be a part of your everyday life, in prayer, studying your bible, and fellowship with God.
