When we discuss the Holy Spirit and the Spirit’s effect upon our lives, we often forget that the Spirit IS God. It is easy to focus upon the Spirit being sent as a guide and comfort and lose sight that in the beginning That same spirit hovered above the waters and saw light being created. The Spirit saw the universe formed. That same spirit saw God form and fill the earth, the oceans and the garden which ultimately means us.
Who better than the Spirit of the God that is the creator and master of the universe to guide and comfort God’s greatest treasures, us. Please do not misunderstand, as a group, God’s chosen are at best a mess. But God Himself knew the mess we were to be as His Spirit hovered over the face of the deep. He knew we would make terrible choices and have amazing needs; the chief of which was a Savior.
When Christ ascended to rejoin the Father, He did not send the 2nd team in as a backup. He sent the Spirit of God who has guided His chosen throughout time. That spirit led Moses, David, Daniel, and the Apostles. The Spirit of God created us and knows us like none other! We simply need to trust and follow the Spirit’s lead. If we will, then that spirit will guide us to the truth, lead us through trials, temptations, and comfort us in the best and worst of times.
This journey is a faith journey. Knowing that, we need to trust God’s Spirit to lead us and complete the work started when we were saved.
God Bless You
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
