(Acts 1:4-8), And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. For john truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence (8), But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come unto you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Have you ever noticed that you could have the taste for something and you keep eating until you are satisfied. Sometimes you might crave a Pepsi or Coke and when you are given a Spite you are not satisfied, until you finally get that Pepsi or Coke. Nothing else will quench that craving that you have. Our spirit and soul quenches after the Holy Spirit daily. Once you have tasted or shall I say felt the presence of God in your life, you won't settled for just a portion of God, you want what you are used to receiving.
The Holy Spirit is the one who brings the voice of God into your heart with clarity. God: the more of the Holy Spirit you have within you, the clearer you will hear His voice. God: the presence of the Holy Spirit in you life daily has to be ushered in, meaning Good morning, Holy Spirit. Do this everyday, renewing His presence. If you listen, you will be aware, have knowledge of what you should or should not do concerning your day to day life. Man was made in the imagine of God and His likeness, that is the reason why we all crave for the presence of God in our life. We thirst for the presence of God because it satisfies us. Have you ever been in a place where the Spirit of the Lord was so overwhelming that you just began crying for no apparent reason? Or have you've ever been in church and the move of God was so strong that you and people next to you began to dance or fall out? Once you have had that experience, you know in your heart that the presence of God fell and rested upon you, you won't just settle for a small breeze, your spirit will crave a rushing mighty wind all over you.
God rested with Moses once Moses was transformed into the man that God needed him to become. God talked with Moses, taught Moses, gave Moses instructions on how to approach the Pharaoh and how to lead the people out of Egypt. God told Moses to raise his hands and part the Red Sea. In the New Testament we read about the birth of Jesus Christ. We read about His ministry and His betrayal by Judas. Once Jesus Christ was nailed to the cross and took all of our sins upon Himself he descended up to heaven after His death. Jesus Christ appeared to the twelve disciples to prove to them that they were not alone and that His Father, God, sent Him to be the Messiah. In the book of Acts, Jesus Christ tells His disciples to stay around a little longer because once He was gone, He will send another, which is the Holy Spirit, His Spirit, the Spirit of the Lord. A lot of the times we forget about the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is not the least of the God-head, He is equal, because He is the Spirit of the Lord. Just as you may pray and say, "God I thank you for a beautiful day". It would not be demeaning to God is you say, "Holy Spirit, I thank you for a beautiful day", because you will be praying to the Spirit of the Lord. Jesus told the disciples that once the Holy Spirit comes, He will teach you all things. PRAISE GOD!
I pray that you have been given more knowledge of who the Holy Spirit is and how He works in you day to day life. The book of Acts explains in more details of the Holy Spirit (the Spirit of the Lord).
