The Holy Spirit


Luke 11:13

(Jesus said) “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?”

When I read that scripture for the first time my first reaction was, “I’ve spent my whole life in church. Why have I never heard that scripture?”

I decided to stop right then and there and ask for the Holy Spirit. My life was never the same since. The Bible no longer was a history book. It became my prayer book. Jesus was no longer a person of history. He became my best friend. The Holy Spirit was no longer some vague theological concept. He became my constant companion and teacher.

The things I read about in my Bible became first-hand experience in my life. I saw people healed, saved, made whole. Jesus changed me from the inside out. My goals and interests changed. I became a new person in Christ. All this from one tiny prayer. Are you willing to pray that prayer?

Father God, I pray for Your gift
of the Holy Spirit.
Fill me.
Make me new.
I receive Your gift with gratitude.

As a side note, I’ve published a new 366 day devotional book entitled Looking Deeper. It’s available in paperback and e-reader. Looking_Deeper_Cover_for_Kindle
