Every human being, every animal, actually I’d say every creature that exists, has its own traits. Those traits help it to be identified. You would never mistake a zebra for a giraffe. You would not mistake a bird with a rabbit, you would not mistake a dog for a mouse. All these creatures have their own identity. And the Holy Spirit also has His own identity. 

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God Himself who comes to live inside of those who seek Him diligently. You could say, having Him is having a piece of God Himself inside of you. He brings strength to overcome sin. He gives peace, even when there is a storm all around you, He guides you to making good and right decisions, He intercedes for you, when you don’t know what to pray. He is the greatest treasure anyone could ever receive. 

But to receive the Holy Spirit inside of you, you have to die to yourself and give up your old way of life. 

Now let’s be honest and clear, a person with the Holy Spirit inside of them will not be struggling with an addiction. A person with the Holy Spirit should not ever feel suicidal. Someone with the Holy Spirit may feel down sometimes, but they will quickly remember God’s promises for them and overcome it. The Holy Spirit is the assurance of your salvation and your future.

The Word of God says about Him… 

 I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, John 14:16-17

The Holy Spirit is a helper. He is the greater helper that anyone can ever receive. But it is expensive to receive Him. It will cost you everything… what I mean is, it will cost you your whole life. 

Do you want Him that seriously? 

May the God of the Bible Bless You
