Who is the Holy spirit? The Holy Spirit is the active presence of God manifest in the tangible world. He is God the Father and God the Son who empowers, purifies, teaches, comforts, convicts and guides those who put their faith in Jesus Christ.
- He empowers us: God knew you going to have dreams and goals and he knew that sometimes you are are going to lack motivation and confidence to fulfill your goals thats why He gave us His Holy Spirit to empower us and move us in the right dirrection. The Bible says, “The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man’s spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God” –1 Corrinthians 2:10-11. I like that about the Holy Spirit. He goes where I cannot. He comprehends things I cannot. He does things I cannot. But when it comes to the things I need to do, He equips me to do them.
- He is revealer of God’s truth.: The Spirit’s presence within us enables us to understand and interpret God’s Word. The Bible says…But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.(John 16:13).When the enemy tries to speak a false identity to you remember that the Spirit of God will speaks to you your true identity as child of God. God’s own Spirit speaks truth over you.
- He is our comforter: When you are going through test and trials the holyspirit will always comfort you in the dark times of your life. when you going through hard times remember to call on the Holy Spirit. God has made him available to to you to help you when your weak, hurt and hopeless to comfort you and give you hope for the future. 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
- He gives us spiritual gifts: The Holy Spirit is given to each of us in a special way. That is for the good of all. To some people the Spirit gives a message of wisdom. To others the same Spirit gives a message of knowledge. To others the same Spirit gives faith. To others that one Spirit gives gifts of healing. To others he gives the power to do miracles. To others he gives the ability to prophesy. To others he gives the ability to tell the spirits apart. To others he gives the ability to speak in different kinds of languages they had not known before. And to still others he gives the ability to explain what was said in those languages. All the gifts are produced by one and the same Spirit. He gives gifts to each person, just as he decides. -1 Corinthians 12:7-11
- He intercede on your behalf in accordance with God’s will: When you pray, it’s His role to intercede on your behalf in accordance with God’s will. “We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express” –Romans 8:26. I love that! Let this verse give you assurance and confidence in your prayer life. Even when you don’t understand yourself, the Holy Spirit knows your heart and is at work communicating it to God.
