Tapping Into the God Power In you

Standard

Lately I have been feeling a pull to study and deepen my relationship with the Holy Spirit. Even going as far as to ponder on the question of, who is the Holy Spirit? How do we as people of God tap into the God Power in us? I have spent time, quietly meditating on the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is part of the Trinity. He is a person, the very essence of God in you . There to guide, teach, and intercede for you .
The Holy Spirit acts like a person in that he teaches (John 14:16), he testifies (John 15:26),He guides us into all truth, as well as he hears , speaks, and brings things to our remembrance. The Holy Spirit also has the attributes of a person, in that:
A. He has intelligence-The Spirit knows the things of God ( 1 Corinthians 2:10-11)
B. The Holy Spirit shows emotions -As in he grieves, and He loves the body of Christ. ( Ephesians 4:30 and Romans 15:30)
C. The Holy Spirit has a will, as seen in (1Corinthians 12:11)
Then we as believers can be filled with the Holy Spirit. This particularly is of interest to me . Because, if we can be filled with the Holy Spirit, we can be filled with the power of God inside of us. Giving us the ability to heal, deliver, and bring others to salvation. Jesus said , ” Verily, Verily I say unto you , He that believers on me, the works I do, he will do also; and greater works than these shall he do. ” There is no time limit in that statement, the defining principal is that you have to believe in Christ. Belief in God, His Son. The Holy Spirit is the gatekeeper of of God’s communication to and through us. Meaning, he helps us in the understanding of God’s word.There are those who say the gifts of the spirit are not available to us today. That thinking puts God in a box. The Bible says, Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Meaning He is equally merciful, powerful, and all-sufficient today. Therefore the gifts and talents that are bestowed in us, through the Holy Spirit, do not self destruct with time; but, continue to flow today. That inflow from the Holy Spirit uplifts and empowers the body of Christ. We so limit ourselves and our abilities by not realizing the power inside each and everyone of us. It takes a desire to have God fill you with his spirit. It also requires a willingness to surrender our whole being to God. Then we can be used as the Holy Spirit desires . That is when we can tap into the wellspring inside of us. In a book I am currently reading, the author states ” But what a Holy joy must come into our hearts when we grasps the thought that there is a Divine Person, one who never erred, who is willing to take possession of us and impart to us such gift as He see best and to use us according to His Will. ” ( The Person and Work Of The Holy Spirit; Reuben Archer Torrey).Therefore, when we are guided by, and follow the Holy Spirit, a peace and a knowing envelops our being, and we are in harmony with God ‘s will. The moment we are in harmony with God’s will for our lives we have tapped into the power source in our lives.
