The Holy Spirit And Us

It Is Written,1 John 4:13, by this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.
The average person seems to be unaware of who the Holy Spirit is, or what He does. The idea of the Trinity baffles a lot of people. They have a tendency to ignore, or not believe in something they don't understand. Faith is strange and even foolish to most of them.
When Jesus was on this Earth, He worked many miracles through the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus himself said He only did what His father said, and He could do no miracles on His own. Don't forget that Jesus time on this Earth was as a man. His faith is what the Holy Spirit acted on.
When Jesus rose from the dead, it was the Holy Spirit that made Him rise. Before Jesus went back to heaven, He told the apostles that they were to do everything He did and more in His name. He also said He would send the same Holy Spirit that was helping Him. The Holy Spirit would guide, teach, and give them wisdom and power to do what Jesus did.
Through the years, all of that was passed down to us. Everything Jesus and the apostles were able to do, we can do. We have the same Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit talks to everyone, to bring them to God. Many people don't hear His tiny voice, or they ignore it. With the passing of time that little voice gets quieter and eventually goes away, when it is ignored. If however one of these people eventually seeks Jesus, the Holy Spirit will act.
Many times people will talk about a feeling, or what they call intuition. That is probably the Holy Spirit trying to help them. When you listen and act on that voice, you will see amazing things. You avoid trouble, you make good decisions, and sometimes it will even save your life. The Holy Spirit is always with you. If you have to make a decision, ask Him for wisdom. He will tell you, and you will have peace in your heart.
Believe me when I tell you that what I said is true. I lived every day. Put so-called common sense away and go with Holy Spirit sense. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You

Amen
