But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
John 14:26 NIV
Jesus put a lot of emphasis on the Holy Spirit while He was here on earth. See what He said in John 14:16-17:
“And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counsellor to be with you forever. He is the Spirit of truth. The world is unable to receive Him because it doesn’t see Him or know Him. But you do know Him, because He remains with you and will be in you”
Holy Spirit is real and He is for us the “believers”.
At that time when Jesus was addressing His disciples, the Spirit dwelled with the disciples, but they lacked having Him in them. If the Spirit of God was so important to the life of Jesus, how much more so for the lives of us the believers!
The Holy Spirit is an important figure throughout the Bible. In Genesis 1:2, we find Him moving about the surface of the waters, and in Revelation 22:17, He and the bride cry with one voice.
From beginning to end, the Holy Spirit has always been active.
In the beginning, creating, and at the end of the story, tending to us. Holy Spirit comforts us, helps us, guides us, reminds us, teaches us, comes along side us, counsels us, and intercedes and advocates for us. There is no area of life in which the believer does not need the help of the Holy Spirit.
He is the Sixth Sense.
Some things cannot be perceived with the five senses; they can only be conceived by the Holy Spirit. Some things cannot be deduced via deductive reasoning; they can only be imagined by the Holy Spirit. Some things cannot be learned by logic; they can only be revealed by the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit compensates for our sensory limits by enabling us to conceive of things we cannot perceive with our five senses. The revelation of the Spirit gives us extrasensory perception, in the truest sense of that phrase. He helps us see the invisible and hear the inaudible.
We have been given a “sixth sense” – the Holy Spirit, who can warn us of what lies ahead. Just remember, Satan will always appeal to one of three areas in your life – the physical, the emotional, or the spiritual – so be ready to detect it. However this sixth sense has to be cultivated, much like our five senses do. Our spiritual vision develops much like our physical vision does.
Ask for the Holy Spirit today. Ask Him to come and take His place in your life today.
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”
God has given us His greatest gift: Himself and His Son through the Spirit. He has yet more of Himself to give to those who meditate, believe, obey, and desire. Ask Him. And keep on asking until He comes or calls.
