“So I say, live by the Spirit, and will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
17 For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other so that you do not do what you want.
18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.”
– Galatians 5:16-18 (NIV)

Our world today is full of many self-help strategies, feel-good techniques, and goose-bumping motivational cliches that make men (and women) believe that there is no need for the supernatural.
With the great advance in artificial intelligence, robotics, machine learning, etc. has come a big disregard for the power of the Holy Spirit. This ought not to be so.
More than ever before, this is the time to get closer to the Holy Spirit. He is the only one that can help navigate the course of life when all looks very uncertain, ambiguous, volatile, and complicated.
God is calling you to shake off every lethargy and lean into the supernatural power of the creator. The real truth is that when all is said and done, the eternal controls the temporal.
For us to walk in our full power as children of God, we must put the Holy Spirit back at the center. We need a fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit to once again be all that we are created to be.
37 On the last and greatest day of the feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.
38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”
39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.” (John 7:37-39 NIV)
Jesus Christ our savior here makes it very clear that the infilling of the Holy Spirit is the real deal.
“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.”
Ps 16:8-11 NIV
“I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,
10 because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
11 You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.”
You will experience a life filled with joy when you set the Lord as your focus and priority.
“If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
Receiving the Holy Spirit is not a fable or rocket science. All you need is to ask God, He will give you freely and abundantly.
It’s time to calm down, refocus, and ask for a fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit… there in is all we need for life and godliness.
LET US PRAY:
Dear Lord Jesus, I set you as my King, and Lord, fill me afresh with the water of life. I come to you to drink from the living water.
Dear Lord, I thirst and hunger for the Holy Spirit. I receive gifts of the Holy Spirit and from now on I shall walk in the full complement of the Spirit. I manifest all the fullness of God.
in Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
