HOW NOT TO RELATE WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
Text – JOHN 16:13-16, ZECHARIAH 4:4-7
When the Holy Spirit wants to help you, you must have a heart that receives the help He is bringing. When two people have the same level of intelligence, the man that can access the help and information that the Holy Spirit is bringing will have an advantage. The enemy may have set traps but if you will escape, you will need to be attuned to His voice and obey. You may not know what the enemy has planned but if you have an unbroken link with the One who sees it all, then you are safe. Information and revelation are two different things. Information has lots of details but revelation contains conclusions. When the Holy Spirit brings divine information in order to help you and give you advantage in life, He doesn’t explain Himself therefore you must learn to obey in dealing with Him. Prompt obedience is important when it comes to divine communications. A superior doesn’t give explanations to the junior. He gives conclusions. Don’t relate with the Holy Spirit like your wife or your children because if you do that, you are likely going to get in trouble. If He sees it fit, He may give you reasons but if not, you just obey because we are called to obey. This generation of believers must be careful of the “King’s kid” mentality that makes many Christians live in disobedience and irreverence to kingdom principles. Airplanes and cars will still crash because of the fall of Adam but believers must ensure they are not partakers of such evils by listening to the Holy Spirit who shows us things before they happen and gives us escape routes out of situations that we cannot handle.
PRAYER: Holy Spirit, I’m sorry for days I despised your leading. Henceforth, I will obey your leading in my life, so help me God. Amen!
