Sometimes in life, we can get so caught up in the things that we can see, what people think of us, what we think of them, business, work, ministry, etc, and our attentions and energies are all taken up. We may just forget the vital chemical that we were not made to function without - the Holy Spirit!!
Like oxygen, when we believe in Jesus, we can receive the person of the Holy Spirit - who is the spirit of God - to come and live in us! The Holy Spirit shows us EVERYTHING that God is, the way He thinks, the way He sees us, the reason He made us, and we know the strength and power of His character and person! How small the things we worry, fear or stress about then become!
John 16:14 But when He, the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.
James 4:5-6 He jealously longs for the Spirit he has caused to dwell in us. But he gives us more grace.
