The Spirit of God

The Holy Spirit is much misunderstood. He is God, not an experience. He is the source of the power we do not have in ourselves. He is the one who speaks when we have no words. He is the one who quiets the heart when all is chaos and turmoil. It is the Holy Spirit of God that gives the words when we speak to our unsaved neighbors and friends about the hope we have within us. It is the Spirit of God that says no when I go for that second doughnut. He is the same God that wants my good and loves me. It is He who groans for me when I run to God in my pain and fear. It is He who encourages me when I am filled with doubt and gives me energy to go on when I am used up. He is not an experience but a giver of experiences. His presence is sweet. He is the air in the room when I do not want to ever leave church. He is the giver of the annointing when I feel I could hear Pastor speak all day and not get tired. He is the answer when all I have are questions. It is the Spirit of God that drew me to Himself. It is His presence that made me long for more than this world can give. It is the Spirit I petition to surround those I love and draw them to God. I am so thankful for God's Spirit, fully God and with me all of the time. It is amazing that God is with me all of the time, His Spirit communing with mine. He points us to the Savior. He gives us power to speak the Word boldly. He makes us witnesses. He intercedes for us. He is present with us all the time. What a mighty God we serve!
