Myterious Holy Spirit

Posted on May 17, 2013 at 6:30 AM

Oh dear Holy Spirit, how can we please You this morning? “We bow down to You, give You rulership over who we are. Live Your life in us. We give our life to You; do with it as YOU will."

We are a host for You Holy Spirit God. Such privilege is almost overwhelming! Help us be more constantly aware of the treasure we hold, Lord. Your holiness indwells us, since You inhabit us. Help us grow and live in truthful understanding of all that is incorporated into Your indwelling habitation, Lord! We want to be fully aware of how precious You are, and constantly mindful of this wonderful gift.



Holy Spirit, You are the third person of the Trinity. You are also the One we seem to know the least about, the mysterious One! You are real and You now indwell me. Wow! I just want to know, does my spirit intermingle with You? Is this how we can communicate with each other, and feel Your Presence? I wish for new deeper understanding of You. I know Scripture says:

Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV)

18 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness

and streams in the wasteland.

Indeed Lord, You are doing new things! We wish to hear Your voice and obey Your word to us. Things of the past are gone forever. Now a new beginning is coming. You have changed weather patterns reflecting the war in heaven, but Spring wins on earth and new birth, Jesus, wins in heaven as well as on earth. So reveal to us Lord, the “way You are creating in the wastelands” of the minds of Your people; how can we help on the effectiveness of “the streams” of life You are creating? Holy Spirit, You are our teacher. We submit ourselves to Your Word of wisdom and teaching. Holy One, teach us! In Your Word it tells us the first step is to be reborn:

John 3:5-8(MSG)

5-6 Jesus said, “You’re not listening. Let me say it again. Unless a person submits to this original creation—the ‘wind-hovering-

over-the-water’ creation, the invisible

moving the visible, a baptism into a new life—

it’s not possible to enter God’s kingdom.

We know Genesis 1 talks of the Spirit hovering over the waters of the unformed abyss. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. . . until God speaks and creation begins. So also the Spirit hovers over the child born of sin until he hears and accepts the truth. Then he/she, touched by the Spirit, is reborn a child of God and grace.

John 3:6

When you look at a baby, it’s just that: a body you can look at and touch.

But the person who takes shape within is formed by something you can’t see and touch—the Spirit—and becomes a living spirit.

Holy Spirit, with newness we perceive the Word. Like the baby we can see and touch, but who can guess the spirit within it and who this person shall become? None can tell. So is it when a person is reborn, a living spirit touched by Holy Spirit, a brand new person is formed.

Holy Spirit I am a new person. My life is no longer self- directed, but You-directed. You indwell me. I invite You to live Your life fully in me. I sacrifice my body to You; use it as You will to accomplish Your purposes! Lord, my life is Yours. I am Your bondservant. I trust You to guide my life journey Holy Spirit, that I might fulfill the potential Father put within me.

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
