Fill me with the Holy Spirit and His understanding of everything that is happening in my life. Help me to recognize You in the scriptures. Open my mind to understand Your truths, and open my heart to accept Your truths in faith even before I gain right understanding. Be the gardener of my life. Nourish the seeds of heaven that You have already placed within me and make it grow so that Your love, Your ways, and Your kingdom will always grow within me and produce much good fruit for others. Help me to trust in You always. Help me to let go of all my earthly attachments. First help me to recognize what I am attached to that is not of You, and then hold my hand as I walk away from the things of the world. Give me the determination and the strength to let go so that I have no other gods before me. I want only You.
1. The Holy Spirit is your Helper.
Who is the Holy Spirit?
In Abrahamic religions , the Holy Spirit is an aspect or agent of God , by means of which God communicate with people or act on them. The word spirit from the Latin spiritus meaning "breath" appears either alone or with other words in the Hebrew Bible Old Testament and the New Testament. The English term spirit comes from its Latin origin, spiritus , which is how the Vulgate translates both the Old and New Testament concept. The Hebrew Bible contains the term " spirit of God " ruach hakodesh in the sense of the might of a unitary God. This meaning is different from the Christian concept of " Holy Spirit " as one personality of God in the Trinity. The Christian concept tends to emphasize the moral aspect of the Holy Spirit more than Judaism , evident in the epithet Holy Spirit that appeared in Jewish religious writings only relatively late but was a common expression in the Christian New Testament. According to theologian Rudolf Bultmann , there are two ways to think about the Holy Spirit: "animistic" and "dynamistic". In animistic thinking, it is "an independent agent, a personal power which like a demon can fall upon a man and take possession of him, enabling him or compelling him to perform manifestations of power" while in dynamistic thought it "appears as an impersonal force which fills a man like a fluid". In the Old Testament and Jewish thought, it is primarily temporary with a specific situation or task in mind, whereas in the Christian concept the gift resides in persons permanently. On the surface, the Holy Spirit appears to have an equivalent in non-Abrahamic Hellenistic mystery religions.
The Holy Spirit was present during Jesus’ life on earth.
Q: "Who or what is the Holy Spirit? I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. The Holy Spirit is not a vague, ethereal shadow, nor an impersonal force. He is a person equal in every way with God the Father and God the Son.
We need Him in our life as a conduit to become who God created us to be, and through His power we have aid in all situations. Without Him, we are powerless. Who is the Holy Spirit? Our first encounter with the Holy Spirit is when He convicts us of our sin, shows us that none of us can live up to the righteousness of Jesus, and reveals to us the judgment that is coming to those who die without a Savior John As we repent, confess our sins and receive the gift of Salvation the Holy Spirit regenerates our dead inner human spirit which now becomes sensitive to the spiritual things of God John ; Acts
