Be Filled With The Holy Spirit

Be Filled With The Holy Spirit

 

“Do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord (Ephesians 5:18-19).

Jesus tells His disciples that the Holy Spirit “abides with you and will be in you” (John 14:17). But how do we engage this personal Helper? How does His power become real for us?

We are to become filled with the Spirit; another way to express this is to be full of Him. When a person drinks too much liquor, they become intoxicated. When a person is drunk, they are under the influence of the drink. The alcohol dictates the agenda. They don’t get drunk by looking at the liquor or talking about it. They drink it. The more they drink, the more drunk they get.

God tells us that it is like that with the Holy Spirit. To see the Helper develop us, He must have control. We must come under the influence of the Holy Spirit. We must become full of Him. So how do we drink the Holy Spirit?

Remember, the Holy Spirit is a spirit, not a being we can see. He functions in the spiritual world, so that’s what we drink—Spiritual Worship. The Holy Spirit fills up the environment that is filled with worship—songs, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with our hearts to the Lord.

 

May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

The Holy Spirit Your Helper.

AND I WILL ASK THE
FATHER, AND HE WILL GIVE YOU ANOTHER COMFORTER (CONUNSELLOR, HELPER,
INTERCESSOR, ADVOCATE, STRENGTHENER, AND STANDBY), THAT HE MAY REMAIN WITH YOU
FOREVER (JOHN 14:16 AMP).

The Holy
Spirit wants you to know that He is your Helper. Therefore, you don’t have to
face any difficult situation alone. Three Hebrew boys; Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego
were thrown into the fiery furnace, but they were unhurt because they weren’t
alone. There was a fourth man with them in the fire. That fourth man was the
Helper amidst the trouble and He is the Holy Ghost.

The Holy
Spirit is your spiritual Helper and He can do much more than your mind can
fathom (Ephesians 3:20). He can help you out of any situation. He’s your
Standby. He’s always there for you at anytime of the day; for He neither
slumbers nor sleeps (Psalm 121:4).

Though the
fire raged, yet, the fire had no power over the bodies of the three Hebrew
boys, “….nor was a hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed,
nor the smell of fire had passed on them” (Daniel 3:27). I want you to realize
that the Holy Ghost wasn’t just standing like a monument; rather, He was
already working ever before the boys were thrown into the fiery furnace.

If you’re
going through fire right now; it may be in your finances, body, academics,
marriage or business, I want you to know God has big plans for you and He’s
already working on it. He has given you the “super-duper” Holy Ghost as your
Helper. Instead of seeking man’s help, turn your attention to Him and trust Him
for He never fails. He’s saying to you today, “when you go through deep waters
and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of
difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned up – the flames will not consume you” (Isaiah 43:2 TLB).
Trust Him and He’ll bring you out of that trouble.

PRAYER

DEAR FATHER, I THANK
YOU FOR THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT; HE’S MY COUNSELLOR, HELPER, INTERCESSOR, ADVOCATE,
STRENGTHENER, AND STANDBY. STRENGTHEN MY HEART AND STIR UP COURAGE WITHIN ME I
PRAY; THAT I MAY SET MY FOCUS ON HIM ALONE IN SPITE OF THE SITUATION AROUND ME,
IN JESUS CHRIST NAME, AMEN!
