The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. John 14:17 New King James Version
Why do you think that is?
Why do you think the world does not see the Holy Spirit nor knows Him?
I do not believe the world cannot see the Holy Spirit but rather rejects His work.
How many folks see a beautiful sunrise or sunset and give credit to “Mother Nature”?
Do they truly believe there is such a thing as “Mother Nature” or would they prefer to give credit to some fictitious creation of man rather than give credit to Jehovah?
How many are so busy worshipping “idols” like music stars, sports stars or movie stars rather than worship Jehovah. Because of this they ignore His amazing music like crickets or thunder or the soft serenade of waves lapping at the shore. Because of this they cannot see the handiwork of the Holy Spirit.
Can you think of any other ways folks ignore the works of the Holy Spirit when He is so visible all around them?
Now we are different.
When we accept Christ in our lives we feel the joy that can only be felt by the Holy Spirit. We feel Him inside of us.
How many times does He convict us when we go wrong?
How many times does He reassure us during the storms of our lives?
The Holy Spirit is my guidance councilor, teacher, comforter, healer, strengthener, provider and protector. Joseph- Anthony: Green Think about each of these titles and then think of how the Holy Spirit has accomplished each of these in your lives.
Why not remember that and thank Him in your morning and evening prayers?
He has accomplished amazing things in my life and through my life. There were so many events in my life (especially through the trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares) that I would never have made it with out Him.
Whenever I try to share this with those in the world they laugh and me like I was crazy but we will see who is crazy on the judgment day. That is because they do not see Him nor know Him.
But, we do, don’t we?
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for the amazing blessing of the Holy Spirit who has so graciously revealed You in so many awesome ways in my life. Thank you the most treasured guidance councilor, teacher, comforter, healer, strengthener, provider and protector ever. I praise You in the name of He who made this blessing possible with His blood on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ beautiful love bless you today and every day.
