“This hope will not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.”
As I walk through a difficult part of my life, I’ve come to need the Holy Spirit more and more. Like never before…my thirst for His presence is not quenched with what I received yesterday…I need a fresh taste for this day.
As much as I’ve struggled and stumbled through the unknowns of this season in my life, I’ve been given this opportunity to experience an intimacy with and dependency on the Holy Spirit that I never would have if I hadn’t been driven to my knees.
In my brokeness, I reached out and asked for His presence…for His fruit, for His gifts…all of it! It was scary and a bit weird…awkward even…but we have a good good Father in heaven that LOVES to give good gifts to His children!
Have you asked for His presence…His anointing…His baptism…His fruit…His gifts? He is so generous with Himself…to spare nothing to save us…to spare nothing to be near us!
I am convinced that if we want to see the Holy Spirit move in power then we have to give Him permission to move in our lives…surrender whatever it is that is stopping you…fear, pride, past hurts…even other well meaning people…
So often we say we want to be disciples of Jesus…to walk and love as He did, but we stop just short of really giving ourselves to Him…to truly inviting Him into those secret places. We’ll gladly invite Him to save us, but not to lead us.
Great and powerful miracles await us when we invite the Holy Spirit to fill and consume us. That we may live a new life in resurrection power for the same power that raised Christ from the dead now dwells in us! Give Him permission to move!
