THE WORKS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE LIFE OF THE BELIEVER
He teaches us all things. John 14:26, “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” 1 John 2:27, “But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” And how does the Holy Spirit perform this function? Through his omniscient nature. The Holy Spirit knows all things. We had earlier mentioned that there are two dimensions to the manifestations of the Holy Spirit :- The power dimension and the wisdom dimension. As Christians, are we really demonstrating the power of the Holy Spirit? If you look critically at the wisdom dimension, you will discover that the children of the world are wiser. There is a close relationship between consecration and concentration. When parents bring their children to me complaining that they are not doing well in school, all I do is to take them through the simple scriptural method – memorizing the scripture. Why? Because the Spirit of God is in the word of God. The word of God is spirit-birthed. If you carry the word of God inside of you, you are carrying life. Most parents are not taking advantage of this and if you don’t place value on the real thing you have, it will take a walk.
He gives life to our physical body. Rom. 8:11, “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” The Holy Spirit is the spirit of life, he is the spirit that quickens, the spirit of restoration, the spirit of revitalization, the spirit of reinvigoration, the spirit of renewal. If you are connected to the Holy Spirit, you are connected to the River of life and anything that river touches is made whole. That is why wherever you have the flow of the Holy Spirit, there will be healings; healing comes supernaturally. Pray – Lord, I thank you, I bless and magnify your name. Thank you for the precious Holy Spirit that you have given me. Precious Holy Spirit, I ask you to be my teacher. I thank you because you are the one who can give life to me, even to my mortal body. I ask you to quicken me and remove every trace of sickness and disease from me. Terminate every agent of death and give me life in supernatural abundance and let it flow. Make me a healing agent in a sick world in Jesus name.
