In nature, God is Spirit (John 4:24).
Main Text: 2 Corinthians 3:16-18
Watchword: The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. (Isaiah 11:2) NKJV
The Spirit of the Lord signify God’s breath (Job 33.4). The Spirit of God is God Himself for our experience and enjoyment. God is one but has three distinct personhoods: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God the Father is the source, God the Son is the course and the expression, while God the Spirit is the application and the one that reaches out to us. The Father sends, the Son accomplishes, and the Spirit perfects. (2 Corinthians 13:14). God’s spirit is simply God’s power.
The Spirit of the Lord is referred to as the Spirit of God, Spirit of Yahweh, Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ, the Spirit of Truth and the Comforter. The Holy Spirit is referred to as the Lord and Giver of Life. (Psalms 104:30). He is the Creator Spirit, present before the creation and through His power everything was made in Jesus Christ, by God the Father. (Genesis 1:2-3)
Those without the Spirit of God are spiritually dead. (Ephesians 2:1-3). When the presence of God occupies us, it will influence our thoughts, decisions, and relationships with others. We need the Spirit of God in our mouth to control our words, in our eyes and ears to control what comes into our minds. Let us yield our lives to the Holy Spirit, be filled with Him and enjoy the power and the comfort, that God makes available to us.
Confession: Heavenly Father, thank you for Your Spirit and Your unfailing power at work in us. Teach us Your will and give us the heart that abides by it.
Prayer: Oh Lord, lead me by Your Spirit and help me to have a close walk with You.
