THE HOLY SPIRIT

The most important pillar of your destiny is the Holy Spirit. Please take into cognizance, this piece will be focused on the role of the Holy Spirit vis-à-vis fulfilling your glorious destiny.

The most important person in the world is the Holy Spirit, hence you can’t achieve any meaningful success without him. Jesus Christ couldn’t step into his ministry until he received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. One of the ingredients to a successful career in life is awareness and it is impossible without the Holy Spirit.

The bible makes it clear in Ephesians 2:10,” For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” So we can see clearly we are the instruments of God and he has a program for us even before we were born as attested to in Jeremiah 1:5. But it takes the Holy Spirit to reveal the plans to us.

Jesus knew his mission on earth with clarity and he declared it in a remarkable manner as outlined in Luke 4:18,”The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free.” But I want you to observe carefully the first thing before declaring his assignment, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me’. So you can see here the Holy Spirit comes into our lives helping us to discover our divine assignment and helping us achieve it. To further buttress this point, Paul made a similar statement in 1 Corinthians 2:9,10,’’ But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.’’ It is clear that you need the Holy Spirit to reveal the plans of God for your life.

Your relationship with the Holy Spirit is the gateway to a life of exploits. The Holy Spirit is a regulator of destinies. Imagine your pressing Iron without one, your guess is as good as mine. Saul was wild because of the absence of the Spirit of God in his life, Peter was a coward because of the absence of the Holy Spirit but everything changed when the Spirit of God came upon him. Life with the Spirit of God is a life of exploits because the Holy Spirit guides us into all truth. (TO BE CONTINUED)
