"On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water." But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified." - John 7:37-39.
Beloved, we are living in the age of the Holy Spirit. Jesus promised at the end of His earthly ministry to send us the Holy Spirit to guide and lead us into all the truth He has come to reveal to us (John 14:26). Glory to God, the Holy Spirit has come and is releasing life-giving waters that lie deep within the one who will yield to Him. The Holy Spirit opens our eyes to see life from His perspective.
When we yield to the Holy Spirit we will find ourselves taking on new interests and priorities in our lives. He changes our desires to conform to the Father’s will for our lives! Fruitfulness and fulfillment in life come as a result of yielding to the Spirit. To yield means “to give up or to give oneself over.” It also means “to open oneself with an open hand to receive from another.” So, yielding to the Holy Spirit means that we give up our own ideas and efforts, and put ourselves in His hand. We approach Him with an empty hand that is open and ready to receive from Him. Do you know it is impossible to grasp one thing when our hands are holding onto something else?
Application: Let the Holy Spirit lead and guide you today. Say, Father, I thank You for giving me Your Spirit. Holy Spirit, I acknowledge You and I yield to You in all my endeavors today. I commit to honour, ask and be obedient to Your promptings Lord. Thank You for helping me in Jesus' precious name.
Scripture reading for the day – 1 Timothy 3:1-16.
Why are the children of God experiencing failure? Why are we not actualizing the great destinies that God has prepared for us? Why are unbelievers successful and the children of God suffering in insufficiency? Knowledge is the key. You cannot rise above your knowledge!
