FOOD FOR THE SPIRIT - January 24, 2011

January 24, 2011

Did you know you have a personal counselor? A personal "therapist" so to speak, who doesn't charge for His services? Not to take away from necessary medical attention - because I do believe we should seek professional help when needed - but there is someone else - someone who is always there to listen to us - to listen to us squabble about our problems and help us sort out why we make mistakes and how we can learn from them and grow - this person is the HOLY SPIRIT - or HOLY GHOST - also known as our Counsellor our Teacher and our Comforter.

The Holy Spirit is just as important as the rest of the Holy Trinity - but all are One in the same - I know - gets confusing - and we, as humans, could never fully understand it all - that's where FAITH comes in - the HOLY SPIRIT is inside of you - inside of me - inside of all of those who accept God's gift of salvation and eternal life through Jesus Christ. The HOLY SPIRIT dwells "in" us - you know that little voice that tells you "maybe you shouldn't do that" or makes you feel a little cautious about things? That comes from the HOLY SPIRIT, who is here to guide us, counsel us, teach us, to be our comforter when we are hurting and also to rejoice with us when we are happy.

Even King David knew in the Old Testament, that the HOLY SPIRIT is very important - without the HOLY SPIRIT of the LIVING GOD, we do not HAVE God. Sure, we all mess up. We all make mistakes. But we have the HOLY SPIRIT of the ONE TRUE GOD to help us learn from our mistakes, and to move on and grow stronger.

So, next time you hear that little voice - listen, stop, pray, ask God to guide you - say, "Hey God, is that You trying to tell me something? I am here to listen, Lord."


PSALM 51:9-11 (NIV)
9 Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity.
10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.

ACTS 2:38-39
38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”
