Lord, we thank You for the GIFT of the Holy Spirit! Not only do You by Your grace lead us to Jesus Christ, eternally quenching our thirst and satiating our souls with the Bread of life, but You empower us to live this life You have called us to by the gift of the Holy Spirit! Thank You God!
Allow for several minutes, your heart and thoughts to swell with gratitude and thankfulness at the fact the Lord provides to us an Advocate. One destined to take the place of Christ, to lead us to a deeper knowledge of the gospel and provide divine strength to see us through challenges and oppression for the Kingdom’s cause. Reflect on the Truth that the Holy Spirit of God is a guarantee of our inheritance from God, and we belong to Him. A guarantee. Take in the moment and knowledge of the fact the Lord has identified us as His own, by placing His Holy Spirit within us.
Breathe deep and allow the Holy Spirit to fill every nook and cranny within every place of your mind, heart and body. With prayers and praise and thanksgiving, allow the Holy Spirit to quicken your life and heart this Thanksgiving season. With this quickening allow the Holy Spirit to lead you to share His faithfulness with another, who may also be ready to receive the gift of God’s Holy Spirit in their life – a soul ready and craving an Advocate to represent them publicly before God, as only Christ can.
Thank You Jesus for Your goodness and faithful love and the Promised Holy Spirit who guarantees all we have in You!
