The Power of the Holy Spirit, 3572
Good morning, and though it’s not Sunday yet, I’m still reporting on finding God’s path for you by using the power of the Holy Spirit.
Now, I’m not a preacher, in fact, I feel like I’m barely a Christian sometimes. And I’m woefully not qualified for this job I’ve taken on – speaking to the public. I’m not well-spoken – even under the best of circumstances. I’ve slowly, over the years gotten more comfortable in front of a camera reading my script, but in front of a live audience – well – Joe Biden’s got nothing on me. On a High School debate team, I’d be the opposite of Donald Trump.
But everyone has a best role in this life, and I think I’ve been led to this one by the Holy Spirit – weak as I am compared to other good talkers – and other good Christians.
I have so many weaknesses that in order just to get this far in one piece in life, I’ve had to depend on the Holy Spirit for guidance and comfort.
At first, I didn’t even know It had a name. I just gradually learned over many years when It was talking to me.
The Holy Spirit is the third part of the God-head – Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
This little diagram explains a lot about God and His Trinity of how He manifests Himself to us.
God is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, but the Father is not the Son, nor is Father the Holy Spirit, and neither is the Father nor The Holy Spirit, the Son.
Ya know, when you look at this diagram, it’s sort of like how the founding fathers of the United States of America set up our government – three separate powers – the executive, the legislative, and the judicial branches. I’ll leave it to commenters to opine on which is which.
I can’t speak for how others stumbled into the door of Christianity, but for myself, it was the Holy Spirit in its “still, small voice” mode that showed me my path home.
There is lots of preaching in churches about the Father and the Son, but not much on the Holy Spirit.
In John, Chapter 14, Jesus announces that He will soon be leaving them. The disciples have relied on his leadership and ability to express the perfect will of God at all times – to walk their perfect path.
In verses 5-6 doubting Thomas asks Jesus:
“Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?”
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, you will know my Father also.”
Then in verse 26, Jesus says:
“But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you.”
The Holy Spirit is also known in the Bible as the “still small voice”.
Why? Because most of the time, it’s hard to hear the Holy Spirit, because He doesn’t usually speak in a booming voice with lightning bolts to emphasize the importance of the message. I had to seek it, and practice recognizing it. Was that the still, small voice of the Holy Spirit, or was that just my ego talking? Eventually you figure it out.
That still, small voice may manifest itself differently for you than it does for me. I don’t think It’s ever spoken words that I hear. It’s not a voice, but a sudden understanding. Sometimes I get a visual of a path in front of me – the pathway home.
And that brings me to my second point, even though it’s not in the title of this piece. But it all ties together in the end – only about 400 words from now.
I usually change up the Bible verse every day that usually appears about 7.5 seconds into every video. But I deliberately left this one up for several days now, because it is soooo important to me, and I didn’t understand its deep meaning until the Holy Spirit suddenly opened my eyes to it about 10 years ago.
It’s from Proverbs 1:7:
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
The moment I understood this came directly from the Holy Spirit.
For the entire first half of my life, I rebelled against this notion that we should fear the Lord. I argued that God is a God of love, and not a God of fear. So we shouldn’t fear our good and loving Lord, but now I understand this proverb.
We should fear the consequences of not believing in the path He has laid out for us – our individual pathway home. What it really means is that if you want to be on God’s path for you, you should fear leaving it – not fear him who set it out!
God has a perfect path laid out for all of us. Finding that path is the problem. Staying on it is another problem. But if you truly seek it, you will find it, and not only that, if it works for you the way it works for me, you’ll get a special knowing when you are on that path.
It’s called the straight and narrow for a good reason. I can only speak for myself, but I tend to wander back and forth across the right path, but never just submit and go straight along it. In other words, I’m off that path about 95% of the time, and only cross over it from time to time.
