PROMISE 3

I will send my Spirit

So, salvation and our free access to God’s presence is what God has donefor us through Jesus. The way we receive it, the how, is through the power of the Holy Spirit. God strengthens your life as you rely more and more on his Spirit dwelling in you—especially at times when you simply can’t go on. You can take great comfort in God’s promise: I will send my Spirit.

What could happen if you daily asked God to fill you with his Spirit? What kind of turnarounds could you experience if you stopped trying to turn things around in your own power? What could be different if you asked God to make you feel alive again with his presence and power?

The word often used in the original Hebrew for Spirit, ruach, means breath or wind. God’s Spirit is as close as our own breath. We depend on breath every moment of every day. God’s Spirit is both untamed and principled, powerful and gentle, expansive and immanent, literally “wind” and “breath.” These two symbols suggest dimensions of our atmosphere, from whirling windstorms to peaceful breezes, to the air we breathe. God’s Spirit is present in all of this. When you accept Christ and place your faith in him, he sends you his Spirit. Paul commands believers to “be filled” with the Spirit. Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you! The Spirit wants to lead you into life, but you need to be willing to follow.

One primary word for Spirit-filled living is surrender. When you feel tired, lifeless, or parched for joy, Jesus shouts, “Anyone who is thirsty may come to me. Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart’” (John 7:37-38). He wants to fill you. You don’t have to live feeling out of breath.

Live free in the promise: I will send my Spirit.

  1. Amem brother! Acts 1:8! If you would like to know about the miracle God did when I stopped breathing on 4-28-12, please read my post “My Lazarus Moment” on the “My Beliefs” page on my blog. God gave me my breath back and the Holy Spirit still sounds like a mighty blowing wind! God bless you brother!
