TOPIC: THE BLESSED HOLY SPIRIT
TEXT: ISAIAH 11:1-9
Key Verse: “And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord” (Isaiah 11:2).
The Spirit of God is a Divine Personality through Whom God relates with His children. The Holy Spirit has the divine nature of God. He has the ability to impart the nature and character of God to God’s children.
The Holy Spirit is the One who whispers godly instructions to your heart, directs your steps in the right direction, and gives you power to pray, preach and overcome temptations. He gives the believer the strength to do right things. He is called the Spirit of Wisdom and the Spirit of Truth. He gives wisdom and guides into all truth. The Holy Spirit makes all the good virtues of God available in the lives of true friends of Jesus. He is the channel through whom the blessings of God flows into our souls.
Our Bible passage shows the essential needs of every friend of Jesus which only the Spirit of God can provide; wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, fear, reverence and honour for God. It is only the Spirit of God that can decorate your life with these godly virtues. You cannot live a meaningful and godly life in this evil and wicked world without the help of the Holy Spirit. Today, pray that God will pour His Spirit upon you.
Prayer: Lord, fill me and rule my whole life by Your Spirit.
