Wisdom Keys (contd.)
12. The wonderful key of fellowship with the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is the third person in the triune Godhead. Cultivate friendship with the Holy Spirit. The greatest partnership you can have is with the Holy Spirit and that is the meaning of fellowship. Holy Ghost Fellowship is not another denomination but a lifestyle of partnering with the precious Holy Spirit. He is your mentor. He is your guide. He is your shield. He is your teacher. He is your counsellor. He is your comforter. He is your strengthener. He is your intercessor. He is your comforter. He is your advocate. He is the one who brings to your remembrance everything you need to know. He is the one who will connect you to the Omniscient. He is your resident power inside – God in you. Holy Spirit is a transformer. He is the one that gives gifts to believers: gifts of word of wisdom, word of knowledge, faith, gifts of healing, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, divers kinds of tongues and interpretations of tongues. 1 Cor. 12:1-11. The Holy Spirit gives us fruit of the Spirit according to Gal. 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” There is no better Consultant than the Holy Spirit. He can guide you in all your transactions and dealings. The Holy Spirit will not only guide you to heaven, he will guide you to take the right decisions. When I was writing my MBA exams, there was a particular course the entire class had problems with because all the questions that were set in that paper were outside our course outline; our lecturers never taught us any of the topics. It was a very chaotic situation in the examination hall that day because almost everyone in the examination hall was angry and shouting in protest. As a Pastor, I decided not to join them in the protest and communed with the Holy Spirit in my heart instead. The Holy Spirit gave me a strategy which is to write using residual knowledge. I took a second look at the question paper and to my delight, I started attempting the questions one after the other until I finished. When the results were released, it was an A to the glory of God. Learn to enlist the Holy Spirit. Engage him all the time. He knows you more than any other person. He is the only friend that is least critical of you. He is ready to lift you.
- Lord, please help me. Help me to put these keys to use. Holy Spirit, help me to connect properly and to walk with you. You have always been there for me; please help me to cultivate friendship with you. Please guide me, please help me. Please enable me. Please strengthen me.
- Help me never to disobey your instructions. Help me to walk by your signals. You are the greatest consultant, I depend on you. I rely on you. Help me. Thank you precious Holy Spirit, in Jesus name.
- Every decision that I will ever make I commit unto you and ask you to guide me. I ask you to lead me. I ask you to empower me. I ask you to counsel me. I ask you to shield me from every attack of the evil one. Thank you precious Holy Spirit. I depend on you, in Jesus mighty name I pray.
