How much thought do you give to the role of the Holy Spirit in your life? You know when Jesus left this earth, he told his disciples that he would send someone else to be with us, and that someone is the Holy Spirit, the comforter, who resides in every believer. He guides us, he moves through us, he communicates to us, he helps us in our weakness, and he can even speak for us. Jesus reminds the disciples in Luke chapter 12 verses 11 and 12:
"When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say, for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say."
We need the Holy Spirit in our lives. We need to listen to him, we need to trust him, and we need to understand him. The Holy Spirit can even heal through us. I’m sure you’ve read several accounts of divine healings in the bible, and I believe divine healings are being done even today because I’ve seen it first-hand. The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Holy trinity and it would do us well recognize him and our need for him.
Every believer has been promised the Holy Spirit. He is always with us, helping us in our walk, praying for us when we don’t know how, and as Jesus mentioned, he can even speak for us by teaching us what to say when we don’t know what to say. Don’t be afraid to recognize the Holy Spirit, to pray to him, to ask him to move on your behalf, to teach you as you read the bible and to comfort you when you are in pain.
