KEY SCRIPTURE: Joh 14:10 KJV” Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.”
On our key scripture, the Lord spoke about the Father in Him who does the works. Who is the father in Him? Before the birth of Christ, the Angel explained to Mary, the to be mother of Jesus, what would be happening to her. “And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore, also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. Luke 1:35. Jesus came from the Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit is the Father in Him. The Lord throughout His ministry consistently remarked that He did nothing without the Father. John 5:30 KJV” I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.”
The preceding verse is a very strong statement. The Lord said He does not seek His own will in whatever He foes. This implies He must of necessity ask the counsel of the Spirit before taking any step. In His mind the only sure way for a successful lifestyle is to do always the will of the Father.
He said in John 8:29 Joh 8:29 KJV And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. What a life! In the light of this He always go to the Father for His counsel. Jesús’ deep prayer life was as a result of His pursuit of the Father, to know His will on any matter. It would have been great for all children of God to relate to the Holy Spirit that way.
With this understanding, we must not treat the Holy Spirit as an extended boy.it is the highest level of ignorance of who the Holy Spirit is to say to the Spirit Holy Spirit go and do this or that for me. You must attend to Him with a great deal of respect. You may say something as Dear Holy Spirit or Please Holy Spirit. Qualify Him with an adjective of honour. Example Glorious Holy Spirit. He is God, the creator of the universe. Your proper attitude to Him gives you the right frame of mind to relate with Him , to bring results.
Dear Holy Spirit, you are my father. I am totally subjected to you in all I do. I always seek His counsel and assistance in all matters. I have a heat and a glorious life, because I have the Almighty Holy Spirit ad my help.
John 14:17 KJV “Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”
Joh 15:26 KJV “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:”
