Day 17 | Remembering What He Has Promised– The Holy Spirit

day 17I love the Holy Spirit.

Sometimes we don’t give that wonderful part of the Trinity enough attention.  I once read that denominations tend to lean toward one part of the Trinity over the others.

Some denominations may relate more to the holiness and divinity of God the Father.  Others may relate more to the human love of God the Son, Jesus.

Still others may relate more to the power and wonder of the Holy Spirit.

Yet it is true that they are all ONE.  Three in One.

I believe the best balance is equal love, devotion, and attention to all three, for all are our ONE God, the great I am.

When I was a teenager, I learned the song, Rushing Wind, by Keith Green.

It has become my daily prayer.  Here are some of the profound lyrics.

Rushing Wind, blow through this temple,                                                                                                                                   Blowing out the dust within.                                                                                                                                                                Come and breathe Your breath upon me.                                                                                                                                            I’ve been born again.

Holy Spirit, I surrender.
Take me where you want to go.
Plant me by Your living water.
Plant me deep so I can grow.

Scripture tells us that the Spirit is our Comforter and our Counselor and our Conviction.  It says that the Spirit will guide us into all truth.  It tells us the Spirit intercedes for us in ways we can’t understand.  The Holy Spirit stands in the gap on our behalf.
Scripture also says we can grieve the Holy Spirit.  May it not be so today.  Today may we walk in communion with the Holy Spirit as He moves us along the path of the extraordinary.
