Don't Miss the Spirit's Blessings

Encouragement for your daily walk with God 

It’s impossible to overestimate the consequences of the Holy Spirit’s filling of the soul. Life, comfort, purity, power, and peace are among the many precious blessings of His presence. Many of His blessings are highlighted by the symbols of the Holy Spirit that we find in Scripture. Here are a few of them:

As purifying water - He cleanses us from the power of sin and sets us apart to holiness, enabling us to do what pleases the Lord.

As fire, He sets us ablaze, enabling us to offer our souls as a living sacrifice to God.

As dove, He descends upon the chosen and bears witness to their sonship by working in them a filial spirit by which we cry, "Abba, Father.”

As wind, He performs the quickening operations by which the spiritual is animated and sustained.

Oh, that we would be filled with the Spirit each and every day.

And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. John 14.16-17
