“If wishes were horses, beggars would ride” is a Scottish proverb, which implies that if wishing could make things happen, then even the most destitute people would have everything they wanted.
That’s why wishing to pass that exam without studying, having streams of income without working, having a beautiful home without working on your character, wishing to have godly and goodly children without proper parenting etc.
All these wishes will just be mere wishes and will never come to reality if one just folds their arm doing nothing.
The Holy Spirit is a personality that every Christian who understands the Trinity desires to have within them. The Holy Spirit doesn’t come into a man through just mere desire.
Having the Holy Spirit within is not automatic because you were born into a Christian home or because you could pray and preach.
The Holy Spirit is the promise of the Father once we come to Him God through His Son Jesus.
Once you accept, receive and totally surrender to Jesus, immediately, the Holy Spirit comes as a fulfilment of the promise and also as a gift to dwell in you.
The gift of the Holy Spirit helps to teach you all things you need to know, bring to your remembrance all you need to remember, ensure you live a holy life and also aid you to live the life God has for you.
Many Christians claim to be filled with the Holy Spirit but the life they live is absolutely in contradiction with the way of the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is holy and cannot be associated with immorality, pride, selfishness, envy, gossip, hatred, lies, cheating, exaggeration, wickedness, laziness, stubbornness, unforgiveness, indecent dressing, bitterness, anger, unbelief.
Do you conclude you are baptised in and filled with the Holy Spirit because of your prayer prowess or how you could interpret the Bible. Don’t forget the devil too can.
Are you there and you desire the Holy Spirit of God?
You don’t need long prayers before He comes to envelop you in Him. You just need two keys; sincerity and faith.
All you need is confessing and rejecting your unholy way, asking for mercy, accepting Jesus and submitting totally and completely to Him.
The Holy Spirit is a sweet personality that is better experienced than explained.
