our fellowship with the spirit
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen
2 Corinthians 13:14
Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Monday 1st November 2021
“The communion of the Holy Ghost” in the verse above refers to the partnership, communication, or fellowship with the Holy Spirit. It involves talking with Him yielding to His Lordship and guidance sharing your thoughts with Him, and receiving His thoughts in your spirit and through the Word. This is what marks you out for extraordinary success in life.
Some haven’t understood the incontrovertible benefits and blessings of fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Fellowship with the Spirit should take or form the most part of your daily routine. He wants to be involved with every part of your life.
Christians who take their fellowship with the Holy Spirit seriously are often shielded and protected from chance and unfortunate occurrences. He said in Psalm 32:8, “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.” Think about that! But then, in the ensuing verse 9, He gave an important admonition: “Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle...” (Psalm 32:9).
Sometimes you hear, “Twenty-five people were killed in an inferno, and a Christian sister was among them.” Or you hear, “Brother so and so was travelling to see his parents, there was an accident, and he died.” It’s not supposed to be so! There’re no accidents or mishaps to the child of God who’s in tune with the Spirit, filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.
When you’re yielded to the Spirit and the Word, the Bible says you “…shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil” (Proverbs 1:33). Hallelujah! Develop an intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit. Know Him for yourself. Commune with Him constantly in prayer and through meditation on the Word. Remember He’s the Helper, Counsellor, Teacher, Advocate, Comforter, Strengthener and Standby that Jesus said the Father would send to us.
Dear Father, thank you for the precious gift of the Holy Spirit, whom you sent to lead and guide me through life, in fulfilling my destiny in Christ. Through my fellowship with the Holy Spirit, I rule and reign over the forces of darkness, the world and its systems, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
John 16 13
13 - However, when He, the Spirit of Truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth. For He shall not speak of Himself, but whatever He hears, He shall speak. And He will announce to you things to come.
Proverbs 1 24-33
24 - Because I called, and you refused; I stretched out my hand, and no one paid attention;
25 - but you have despised all my advice, and would have none of my warning.
26 - I also will laugh at your trouble; I will mock when your fear comes;
27 - when your fear comes as a wasting away, and your ruin comes like a tempest when trouble and pain come upon you.
28 - Then they shall call upon me, and I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me;
29 - instead they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of Jehovah.
30 - They would have none of my counsel; they despised all my correction,
31 - and they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own desires.
32 - For the turning away of the simple kills them, and the ease of fools destroys them.
33 - But whoever listens to me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
