Walking With Holy Spirit

Blog In Audio:


God is always ready and willing to work in our world for a testimony of hope and life. As leaders our perspective should be that of a future and a hope in Christ. We are to lead others to keep their focus upon who God is. Our daily communion is with Him, and we lead others to make Him the focus of our lives. When we live with our focus on God, we live with an assurance of all that God can do and not upon the despair of a corrupt world. Heaven is not just a destined location; it is a destined reality in every situation of our lives. Even what the enemy intends for evil in our lives can be turned for good. The Spirit of God is always preparing our world for a future filled with the glory of God. This is the testimony of the Holy Spirit working in our lives. What was the Holy Spirit doing in Gen. 1:2?

Genesis 1:2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.   

In the beginning of our world as we know it, the Holy Spirit was hovering over what needed the life of God. There was a need for order, fullness, and light. These are all attributes of life. God is the One who gives life, breath, and all things. Holy Spirit was there in the beginning to give life, breath, and all things. Holy Spirit is ready to do the same in our lives and Holy Spirit is the source of every beginning in our lives. Life is filled with transitions from what was to what is and those transitions lead to what will be. The transitions of our lives need the presence of God’s Spirit in order for us to experience the life that God desires to give us.

What in your life needs form or order today? Holy Spirit is God and He is ready to bring the form and the order of life to your situation of need. What in your life needs filling? Holy Spirit is ready to fill what is empty with the fullness of life. What in your life is dark? Holy Spirit is ready to bring light to every area of darkness. The order of life, the fullness of life, and the brightness of the light of life is in the heart of God and Holy Spirit is ready to hover over our areas of need. Holy Spirit cares for us and we need to welcome the Holy Spirit in every new day of our lives. It is not just a matter of partnering with Him. It is a matter of intimacy, fellowship, and connection. Holy Spirit is God. He is the Lord. Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God made real in our lives.

John 4:24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

God’s Spirit is the Holy Spirit. He doesn’t merely desire to visit us in life. Jesus made it possible for us to become the temple of the Holy Spirit. We are an abiding place for the Spirit of God. Christ in us is the testimony of the Holy Spirit in our lives. In the Old Covenant, the Holy Spirit was with Moses and with those delegated to lead, but in the New Covenant the Holy Spirit abides in and with leaders and in and with every person they lead. We are a dwelling place of God by His Spirit. Holy Spirit gives us the ability to bear the burdens of our lives.

Numbers 11:17 Then I will come down and talk with you there. I will take of the Spirit that is upon you and will put the same upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, that you may not bear it yourself alone.

Holy Spirit is our Helper in the exact same way the Jesus in the flesh was a Helper to His disciples. He should not be our second, third, fourth or last ‘go to’ in our lives. Holy Spirit should be the first ‘go to’ in every area and every decision of our lives. But even more than this, simply fellowship, communion, and intimacy should be with Holy Spirit in every day of our lives. Just as the disciples lived with and walked with Jesus in His journey, we should live and walk with Holy Spirit in His journey in our lives.

John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.

A priority of every day of our lives is to embrace the presence of Holy Spirit. He is hope to even the formless, void, and dark places before us. We are truly blessed to be children of God with the Spirit of God in, upon, and with us in life. This is the foundation, infilling, and destiny of our lives as leaders and as children of God in Christ. Just as Jesus helped His disciples by leading them, teaching them, and empowering them in life, Holy Spirit desires to do the same for us.
