Have you ever wondered why Jesus needed to be baptized by John the Baptist? It was because He knew the Holy Spirit would come upon Him. To move into what God wanted in His life. The Holy Spirit had to fall upon Him in order for Him to start His ministry. So this is showing us that we have to have the Holy Spirit dwelling in us to move in all God has for us. So if Jesus needed to be empowered by the Holy Spirit and look at who He was, then how much more do we need to be empowered by the Holy Spirit. Jesus said you shall receive power as the Holy Spirit comes upon you. that means there is a direct correlation between the Holy Spirit and power. As long as we dwell in righteousness, the Holy Spirit can dwell in us. Even though the Holy Spirit dwells in us, we can still grieve Him and quench His work in us. We grieve Him by our sin. We quench His work in us by ignoring Him, neglecting to acknowledge His presence in us, or refusing to follow his leading. So we need to respond to His presence in us and not just when we become desperate for it.

If you are truly walking with God, the devil will come after you to get you to stop believing in God. If you are not getting attacked then you are not walking with the Lord the way you should be walking. The devil knows the true Christians and he wants to destroy you. His plan is to take as many of God's people with him when his time is up. In the Word of God, He shows Jesus how to defeat the devil with Is Word. But the only way you can use His word to defeat the enemy, is to know that Word. The only way to know the Word is to constantly be in His Word. The time is getting short and if you don't have God's Word in your heart then the devil could defeat you. When the enemy comes and encroaches upon your life, humble yourself before God and declare your dependence upon the lord. Have complete faith in His Word and pray for him to move in each circumstance. Pray for his glory and the leading of His Spirit daily. Worship in the beauty of His holiness. When you following His leading believe for victory. Confuse the enemy with praising and worshiping the Lord daily.

The Holy Spirit will always directly lead you to bond with Godly people for spiritual and personal input into your life. As always He will lead you away from ungodly people. The Bible shows us through the scriptures how important it is to have godly friends, and you should not ignore it. Bad friends corrupt us, and read God's words to see what happens when you allow them in your lives. One of the worst examples of the terrible influence of bad friends is David's son Amnon. The scriptures show how this runs all the way down to Absalom turning on his father. Also, look at Job's friends. You will see with these situations that you want to pay attention to the leading of the Holy Spirit. We must be connected to other believers so we can stand strong with one another. Pray for one another. Yes, pray for others when the Holy Spirit brings them to your mind. Your prayers may be life or death to someone that needs them. In this day and age, don't pass by praying for someone. If King David would of not strayed from the leading of the Lord, his family may not have been destroyed.

It is important to lead someone to the Lord, but it is also important to teach them to pray.
Start out praying for them and when they decide they want to pray, pray with them. Prayer is a powerful ministry that every Christian should be doing daily. Pray for people in your life daily and when the Holy Spirit moves on you to ask someone, "Can I pray for you?", pray. People across this land needs prayer and when you pray God listens, when it comes from the heart. When you walk daily with the Lord, people can see the love and peace you have. They want that, but they don't know how to ask for it. Well, pray for them, that God will open their eyes and ears to hear His still small voice. Some think, if I pray and God does not answer, then how can they believe. It is not our job to get the answer, our job is to pray and God's job is to answer. God will bring people into your life to pray for. Even move you in your life for them to come across your path. You just never know what God has in store for you or them. When you say, you will pray, you better because God does not take that lightly. Pray when you say you will pray, so you don't forget to

When you have the Holy Spirit moving in your lives you can show others how the Lord loves them. Everyone is special in Gods sight, but the enemy makes them think they are not worthy or they have done too much that the Lord would not even look at them. But that is a lie from the devil because He loves all and wants all to repent and come unto him. Show others the hope you have in believing and trusting in the Lord for all things. It can be so rewarding when you share the love of the Lord with others, to help them find the way everlasting. The Lord is our strength and our every present help in time of trouble. If you see one that is hurting, ask God to guide you in every step of the way to open the door to talk to them. People in this world are lost and you would not want one to go to Hell, not a pretty place for anyone or anything. So reach out and touch someone with the love of the Lord. Let the Lord guide you in your words, but you need to step out in faith believing He will give you the words to touch that one that needs the Lord. Be strong and of good courage for God is with you when you desire to walk in the way He would walk. Help save someone for the Lord.

Most people don't think to pray for their country. If you are walking with God, you should be able to see what is going on in this country with the evilness that is trying to take over this land. The sin in this land invites God's judgement. You do not want to see what can happen when He takes His hands off and there is no protection. This land was founded on the Word of God and now man has taken God out of everything. First it was schools, then public buildings, and then Christmas was removed until our present President brought that back. But we are not to sit back and think someone else should change the evil that is spreading. What we are seeing that even ones in our government sit back and doesn't stand up for righteousness. Well, you talk about that, but what do you think the Christians are doing by not praying for the wrongs that are being done. They are sitting back and doing nothing if they are not praying for God to move. God hears each and everyone that prays with a true heart. If you read God's Word, you know that we will all be accountable for what we say and do at the end times. D o you want to be one of those Christians that don't pray and think it is someone else responsibility.

You asked the Lord in your heart and He is Holy. His Spirit is Holy. There for, you should be holy. This does not mean you isolate yourself from the world. You just don't want to be influenced by the ways of the world, separate yourself. So seek the counsel of God in everything and He will direct your path. You must believe and have faith that His perfect will is what is good for you. When you walk with one step in the world and one step in God's world. Then you can loose something valuable that God has for you. Is it worth loosing what God has for you, just to please the world. There are all kinds of things that can pull you away from God. It can be love ones, friends, or even ungodly things you have in your house that you don't want to let go of. Refused to let anything pull you away from God. Even though the world will try to divert you away from God's purpose for you. Reject the counsel of the world and seek the counsel of God. How many times have we lost something valuable that God had for us, all because we did not separate ourselves from the world?

If you have the Holy Spirit in you, you should walk different than the ones in the world. If people cannot see a difference in you, then you are not led by the Spirit. When Jesus gave the Holy Spirit to reside in you, He sealed a relationship with you. But you have to give Him place to work in you and through you. The Holy Spirit will not show Himself unless you allow Him to. When you commit sin such as actions, words, or thoughts such as unforgiveness toward another person, you grieve the Holy Spirit. Is that worth doing? When you don't forgive, you hurt yourself not the person you don't want to forgive. In the long run, you hurt the ones you love because God can't work and answer your prayers. Your flesh is the problem when you don't walk in God's plan and design for your life. In order for others to see the beauty of God's Spirit in us, we must separate ourselves from all that is not of God. Choose to separate yourself from all sin, from the evil ways of the world, from traps of the enemy, from all temptation, from the failures of your past, from pride, and all that draws you from God. We have a choice in the way we live. Choose God's Way.

You should be worshiping in spirit and truth. If you are not, He will guide you in all truth, if you ask the Lord. Fill your heart with His Word, so you can have a Godly relationship with Him. When you are worshiping the Lord, you should look to Him and not what is going on around you. Kneel at the foot of the Cross and know what He did for you. Just set your eyes on Him and worship Him with all of your heart. There is nothing in this world that feels like being in the presence of the Lord. The Lord is our Heavenly Father, Bread of Life, All-Knowing. Light of the Word, Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Stronghold in the Day of Trouble, Resting Place, Refuge from the Storm, Shade from the Heat, Rewarder, Shield Sustainer, and Merciful, thank Him, that He is these things to you. Praise Him because He loves you, He is more powerful than anything you will every face. You need to realize He is your Counselor, Savior, Mighty God, Deliverer, Healer, and Prince of Peace, how can you not worship Him in spirit and truth.

When you ask Jesus into your heart, you have the Holy Spirit. You need the special outpouring of the Holy Spirit to indwell in you. When we worship God, His presence is with us in power and we can better hear from Him. Open your whole heart to Him, by worshiping then the Holy Spirit is the open channel through which God pours Himself into us. As you worship Him, His love, joy, peace, power, and all that He has comes into our heart. So when you complain, you are not led by the Holy Spirit. You should be taking those complaints to God. This shows you that you are not opening your whole heart to Jesus. When you complain, don't look for the blessings of God to come into your lives. It will come back to bite you, so to speak. So ask the Holy Spirit to lead you, so you will go to God instead of complaining. Thank God that He has the way out or through everything that concerns you. Seek God and the Holy Spirit to guide you in every area.

How many people either didn't inquire of the Lord about what they were doing, or they did, but didn't listen to the Holy Spirit's prompting and they have died or been killed. You need to learn to hear the prompting of the Holy Spirit because in this day and age, your life may depend on it. As you spend more and more time in God's Word, you will learn to hear His still small voice. You know it is of God when you have a peace. If you don't have a peace from it, ask the Lord to show you. Don't just read His Word, spend time talking, praying, and worshiping the Lord. Surrender all you are and all you have to Him, the one that died for you. Learn to listen for He will show you things, like not going somewhere that you think is good to go. Remember, the devil is the deceiver. He will make you think that it was of God, when it wasn't. When you go somewhere you shouldn't, your life can change and you don't see it. Walk in God's way only and have Him lead you in every area you won't be sorry. The closer you are to God, the more you welcome the fullness of His Spirit in you, the more you will learn to identify and trust His prompting to your heart.

You have heard the statement that they have no common sense. They seem to have book knowledge but no wisdom which leads to doing stupid things. Ask the Lord to give you wisdom and knowledge as you go throughout your day. If you don't start your day speaking to the Lord, you better not go out that door because you may not be protected the way you need to be with what is out in the world. True wisdom and revelation comes only from God by the power of His Spirit. Good combo sense is produced by godly wisdom. When the Holy Spirit is working in your life, you will sense by the Holy Spirit something disturbing about a person and it turned out to be completely accurate. God will reveal things to you like this or maybe not to go a certain way when you are traveling and you found that there was an accident that you missed. He does speak to us, if we will listen. Ask for the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. As this world is getting more and more evil, wisdom and revelation are two things we cannot live without.

There is always people that are trying to prove that God does not exist. We should feel sorry for them and pray for them. For if we do not pray for them to turn to God, they will be lost. They will never experience His transforming love, or know that completeness of His presence. They will lack all that He can do, which is sad. Then there are ones that believe in God, but not Jesus. When you don't believe in Jesus, you will ever know the salvation, liberation, healing, and redemption He has for you in every part of your life. God is a good God and He does not make bad things happen in our lives. The bad things come because we make bad choices. There are unbelievers who are good people, who seem better than some Christians in this world. The time is getting to the place where all need to get close to our Lord and Savior. Believers that don't believe in His Power are missing out in all that He can do in their lives. Don't be one of them that doesn't believe. You must have faith and believe all He can do in order for miracles and wonders to happen in your life.

You can not imagine all that God has for you. If you don't know every aspect of who God is, you will not be able to receive. God is one God. God is the Creator of all things. Jesus who is God's Son and also God. The Holy Spirit, who is God's Spirit and also God. They are inseparable, yet separate, but yet one God. God has always existed and will always exist. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit were one at creation. God created man in His image. God is and always has been. He is everywhere and knows everything. The human flesh thinks they can do something and if no one is around then no one knows about it, wrong. God knows. The power of His presence is only personally revealed to those who believe He exists and choose to have a relationship with Him on His terms. God rewards us with many things, the greatest of which is His presence. He moves on us to save us and that is our desire for all to be saved. If your heart is not to pray for others to be saved, you need to check your heart, for it is not a heat after God's.
