The Holy Spirit empowers us to do what God has for us to do. The Holy Spirit is all God and we cannot make His power come, but you have to cooperate with the Holy Spirit in order for God's power to work through us. If you allow the Holly Spirit to work in your life you will see work in your life. If you want things to work in your life for good, then you need to surrender to God completely. You need to obey His laws and commandments and go where the Holy Spirit leads you. Invite Him into your life, welcoming Him and worshipping Him in spirit and in truth. If you don't surrender, then God can't work in your life in the way He wants to work. We are all called by God to do something in our lives for Him. Most people think they know what they need and what is best for them. But God is supreme and He knows better than you what you need. Acknowledge Him, desire to know Him better, long to hear from Him and learn to follow Him. Yes, God does speak to us, you need to listen and not drown out His voice.

This is how God works in us. Seek His presence with all your heart. A most precious gift He can give us except to die for our salvation. Our Father in heaven is an awesome God and you should respect Him and reverence Him daily. When we don't receive all that the Holy Spirit has to offer us, we reject the gift Jesus paid the price for us to have. Ask God to fill you with His Spirit to over flowing and to guide you in the way you should go. Where the Lord leads you, His hand will protect you. You should desire to walk in His love not the human love that fails us daily. Desire to be saturated in His Agape Love. The Holy Spirit has the power to change us, desire that change. John the Baptist said, "He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire". That fire is from the Holy Spirit that will refine you and remove all that is not of Him. Desisre the Holy Spirit to strengthen you and to live the life God has for you.

If you are walking with the Lord, the Holy Spirit will guide you to godly friends and lead you away from spending time with ones that do not produce the righteousness of God in your life. As you read His Word, you will see how God warns us not to surround ourselves with ungodly people. Look at King David's son Amnon who had a crafty friend who brought evil into his life and he took advantage of his half sister. The evil spread into the family because King David did not address this incest as the Lord instructed. That sin grew further down the family with Absalon who took revenge into his own hands concerning his sister. See how this one ungodly friend destroyed the whole family. Do you think it is worth destroying your whole family? If you don't think it is, then pray God will guide you in the right direction away from the ungodly. But if you don't think the evil can touch you and your family, then you better check your heart for it is not right with God. Evil destroys and God shows us throughout His Word.

It is crucial to bear good fruit in your relationships. If you are walking with the Holy Spirit leading you and not your flesh and pride. You will humble yourself unto the Lord. The best seeds to plant in any relationship is through prayer. Ask for love, compassion, and giving of yourself. When we don't give in our relationships, we stop up the blessings God has for us in them, and we cannot produce a harvest of His fruit. If you are always bailing someone out whom God needs to teach to trust Him, then that is not producing good fruit. So then that one depends on you and not God. To bearing good fruit in relationships, pride is one of the biggest obstacles. When you walk in pride, you become conceited. Instead, walk in unity in your relationships and let the Holy Spirit led you in the way you should go.
Pray for this world and the people in it that don't know Jesus. Not everyone has someone that is praying for them. Be that person. Also, keep your Pastor in prayer.
