The Holy Spirit is not a force or a feeling. He is God. God is naturally, in essence powerful. This power was given to us. However, a force is not a comforter. Only personalities can bring comfort. Someone that can communicate and connect with another.
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. John 16:13
If the Holy Spirit was a force, we would be able to manipulate Him at will. However, we cannot manipulate God. We must have respect for God and His power: not to be used to wave around like a magic wand; or believing that whatever you pray for, it will always happen as you want it. Remember, God has His perfect will. Sometimes what we want, isn’t what God wants for us or is part of His greater plan.
God doesn’t care about empty sacrifices. Worship should come from a pure heart. Not because your Pastor says so, but because you have full understanding of who and why you are worshiping.
Honor and reverence God with humility. Do not brag about the authority and power given to you, but like Christ said, rejoice not because you can cast out demons but because your names are written in the book of life.
When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, “Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!”“Yes,” he told them, “I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning! Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you. But don’t rejoice because evil spirits obey you; rejoice because your names are registered in heaven.” Luke 10: 17-20 NLT
Rest. Be at peace. Jesus promised us the Great Comforter that will be with us forever.
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. John 14:16-17
The Holy Spirit is always listening and whatever He hears, He shares with us. Basically, The Holy Spirit is keeping us updated. Time with God is important. Intimacy is a mix of quality time and communication. It is through intimacy or relationship that we grow in Christ and are being led by His Spirit.
Thank You Jesus for The Comforter.
