Well, the Bible tells me He is a Comforter, Teacher, Standby, Healer, basically my everything. That is who He’s supposed to be at least.
As a believer, we’re to be in constant communication with Him. Because we do not fight against the carnal world but against the spiritual realm and principalities. He is our link. He tells us what is happening there. He directs us as to what to do to win the fight. God handles our battles for us through the Holy Spirit. He tells Him what to tell us.
How do we win the fight when we can’t communicate with our Fighter? Our Strength? Our Lead? It’s like entering into a battle with no sight nor hearing, it’s likely you will lose that fight. But what happens when you go in prepared? With the right apparels and knowledge? We come out victorious!
The Holy Spirit gives us the apparel we need, the knowledge we need as well as wisdom to handle it. We need to communicate with Him constantly to know what He’s saying about our current fight or the next one or the one after.
How do I communicate with Him?
Spend more time with Him, read the Word, pray more. Just like how you get to know a person by being with him or her often and staying in constant communication and asking questions, it’s pretty much the same with the Holy Spirit. Although you may not see Him with your eyes, you can see Him with your spiritual eyes, when you get close to Him. Constantly, talk to Him. You may not get a reply immediately, not because He didn’t answer but because you were not able to recognize His voice amongst the many other voices speaking daily, but don’t give up because the more you spend time with Him and get to know His ways, the easier it will be to recognize His voice.
The Holy Spirit desires you to seek Him and communicate with Him, He longs to hear you call out for help in all situations and decisions you take, even the most trivial things, like what to wear or what to have for lunch. I know. He’s sweet like that. Regardless of how you feel or whatever sin you may have committed, He still desires to hear your voice. He will never reject you. You may feel guilty and unwanted but He loves you still. He’s waiting for you.
He’s a Gentleman. He won’t force His way into your life. Although He would long to have you in His arms, He’d patiently wait for you to come to Him, rather than just pulling you to Him. Remember, you’ve been given free will – the power to make decisions – He doesn’t take that from you, no matter what.
He wants you, even in your broken state. He wants to mend you, together with your help. Just take the first step and invite Him in and watch Him love you.
He does not just see you through life, He makes you happy, joyous, peaceful. Ever seen someone whose face is always lit up, regardless of their current situation? I bet that’s the doing of the Holy Spirit because He’s good at that. He makes you see the beauty in yourself. He joins the broken pieces and forms the most beautiful piece of art out of it. He gives you beauty for ashes. He makes you light up and shine so bright wherever you go. He’s happiness and peace and joy and He rubs it off on you because that’s how He longs for you to be at all times.
He’s your source of everything – food, clothes, knowledge, success – just name it. He handles that too. He’s your provider. Mummy or daddy may physically give it to you but the Holy Spirit is behind it. You lack nothing with Him in your life, just tell Him about it and He will give it to you according to the will of the Father and at the right time.
Be patient and trust Him.
