WORK WITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD
(The Holy Ghost Needs Your Cooperation)
📖TO THE BIBLE John 14:16
“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever”
Even though the Father gave us the Holy Spirit to be with us, and live within us, He (the Holy Spirit) requires our cooperation to carry out His ministry in our lives. He doesn’t do His work in you, without you. This somewhat accounts for the reason His manifestations could differ in the lives of Christians. In some Christians, He’s manifested in a great measure, while in some others, His work is suppressed; you rarely see the proof of the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit in their lives. This ought not to be.
Cooperate with the Holy Spirit; be synchronized with Him. Encourage His work in your life. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is manifested in your life to the extent that you allow Him. The more you cooperate with Him and encourage His work in your life, the more He manifests Himself in, and through you. Remember, He’s your helper; so, you need Him. We’re the ones with the assignment from the Lord; we’re the ones charged to go into all the world to make disciples of all men. And He’s been given to us to help us carry out our assignment. Therefore, trust Him.
Work, and walk with Him! Depend on Him. Without Him, you can do nothing (John 15:5). He’s the strength that you need. He’s the wisdom you require. The Bible says, “…for by strength shall no man prevail” (1 Samuel 2:9); human abilities and charisma won’t work. You must do all that you do with the help and power of the Holy Spirit. He must sanctify and breathe upon your work; otherwise, there’ll be no true success. He came to help you fulfill God’s plan for you; therefore, be yielded to His leading and guidance always.
John 14:16 AMPC; Philemon 1:6
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit in my life. I acknowledge His presence in me, and I’m yielded to His leading and guidance today. I’m strengthened and rightly positioned in the centre of your perfect will, because I walk with the Spirit; His wisdom guides and propels me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
