God Gave Us!
“For he whom God has sent utters the words of God, for he gives the Spirit without measure.” John 3:34
God’s Spirit is seen from the scripture above as a gift from God. This is such a beautiful and great opportunity that we have received. The Holy Spirit is freely given as a gift to God’s children, and the Spirit which is given has numerous functions and contributions to our life. But do you know we only operate a few and do not utilize the unlimited capacity of the given gift?
God does not limit His children, but ignorance and lack of understanding are a major factor that leads to limitation in a believer’s life. Our complacent attitude towards the things of God can lead our lives to be unfruitful, empty, and meaningless. Christian growth diminished when they are not thirsty and hungry for God’s Word.
Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you as My priests. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children.”
Brethren, only believers who become more thirsty for knowledge and wisdom in the word of God daily, never lose their faith in God because they are filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. It is through this thirst that we have been able to grow spiritually and become more like Christ. Through this thirst, we have been able to experience the love of God and the joy of living. We must always remember that God gives us the power to know without withholding anything.
The Holy Spirit is not a commodity that God should consider the money or riches you have before He can give unto humanity. He gives the Spirit liberally and without measure unto the hungry soul. So, we are not to see the Holy Spirit as a machine for doing one thing or the other; God gave us all the decisions and ways of our life. Proverbs 10:21 says, “The lips of the righteous encourage many, but the fools die for lack of knowledge.”
1. Lord, help me to know you more than I do now.
2. Holy Spirit, breathe on me the daily fresh power of God in Jesus’ name.
