A Heart For Praise

heartOnly a merry heart can praise God effectively.
Without a merry heart, your song remains a noise but with a merry heart even your noise is turned into a joyful noise of praise.
No matter how bad the situation may be, never loose your heart to your present condition because it is not your portion.
Just look up unto # Jesus the author and finisher of our faith who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross.
Never set your eyes on the temporal negatives, there is no situation God cannot change, when man’s energy fails him, then the battle becomes attractive to God but He is not a manipulator or a busy body.
God is at the sidelines just waiting for you to invite Him.
Praise is the mysterious tool for attracting God to take active part in our battles.
2 Chronicles 14:20-22

PRAYER

Father please anoint me with the oil of gladness and take away every spirit of heaviness from me so that I can praise at all times and as I praise you, take over all my battles in Jesus name.

TEMPTATION101

Being tempted doesn’t make you a sinner but it is your giving heed to it that makes you a sinner.
Temptation comes to every christian on daily basis because even # Christ was also tempted on divers occassions.
God doesn’t tempt people to bring them down but God can test you to prove you.
God already knows you and what you are capable of but He proves you so that you may know yourself, which is a prerequisite for preparing you for your next assignment.
If you fail God’s test, He gives you a another chance, no punishment is attract for failure.
God is ready to give a minimum of seven chances because a just man falleth seven times but riseth again.
The devil is the tempter and he tempts you to bring you down.
God doesn’t allow the devil to tempt you beyond your ability to resist, so if you fall, it is your fault.
Whenever you give heed to the devil, punishments are attracted.
Temptation is just like an election where you choose to vote for # God or the devil.

Vision or Ambition?

Vision is not the same as ambition. Although, ambition can make you a multi-millionaire just as vision can, there are added benefits you tend to enjoy as a visionaire instead of an ambitionaire?
Firstly, in the realm of vision, your safety is guaranteed as well as your success. If you’re working as a visionaire and still going through tough times, it is because, “A great door and effectual is open unto me, but there are many adversaries”{1 Corinthians 16:9}. Your enemies will only try to stop you after perceiving your glorious future but since you’re waking according to God’s purpose for your life, they will never succeed because stopping you, is the same as stopping God.
For every creation, there is a purpose for it and this is only made known in the realm of vision. This is the major reason for failure in life as people resort to their earthly and fleshly ambitions instead of walking according to God’s purpose for them and you know when the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable.
God once gave Jonah a vision to go into the land of Nineveh to preach but he ran away from it for the satisfaction of his own personal ambitions. This almost led to his death and the death of other innocent travellers because ignoring vision doesn’t only puts you at risks, it also make you a risk. But at the end of the day when he had repented, he was ushered into the realm of sweatless success as he did in one day what could have taken him three days to do. Jonah’s ministry remains one of the most successful because an entire city fasted alongside all the beast in the land due to his ministry.

Don’t you ever underestimate the power of divine agenda because those who hold fast to it are never forsaken.

How To Discover Your Purpose in Life [Catching a Vision Of Who You Are]

Until you locate the purpose of any product, that product will always fail and won’t work for you because a product cannot function efficiently outside what it’s being created for.
To discover what a product is for and how it works, you’ve got to

  • ask the manufacturer,
  • refer to the manual accompanying the product,
  • ask those who know about the product, or
  • you make research.
  • Understand that you’re a product made by the manufacturer, you can’t decide what to become, you discover it. Most persons wouldn’t want to bow to this fact and that’s why they are failing big time but hear me now, you have a maker who said, “…before I formed thee, I knew thee…”{Jeremiah 1:4}. He formed you alone hence, He knows you alone. You are unique and you remain the original copy of who you are regardless the nature of your birth. Your loved ones, teachers or mentors did not make you hence they have no right of telling you who you are. No matter how poor, bad, rejected, or disfigured you’re, your manufacturer has a plan for you, which is “…a thought of peace and not of evil to give you an expected end“{Jeremiah 29:11}. No matter how wicked a manufacturer might be, you don’t expect him to sit down to make something that he expects to fail, how much more your righteous heavenly father.
    You don’t have any rights telling your maker who you want to become or rejecting His purpose for a pot can never be greater than the potter hence He said “woe is he that striveth with his maker”{Isaiah 45:9} for, “…my counsel shall stand and I will do my pleasure”{Isaiah 46:10}

    So, how do you locate your purpose?

    BE BORN AGAIN: This is the first step to discovering your purpose as this gives you a divine connection to God. Please never try to infer that not having a divine connection to God means that He’s no longer your creator.

    PRAY: The scriptures said, “Ask me of things to come concerning my sons and concerning the works of my hands, command ye me”{Isaiah 45:11}

    PRAISE: God lives in praise and when you praise Him He comes down to you. Whenever He’s with you, expect to hear from Him.

    READ THE BOOK:The bible is a very special book from God that can help you discover you. Christ and John the Baptist discovered their purposes via the book. Go and look into that book because until you look into it, no one looks at you.

    READ OTHER ANOINTED BOOKS: Daniel used this and it worked for him-“…I Daniel understood by books…”{Daniel 9:2}. You too can.

    ENGAGING THE HOLY GHOST: “I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh…your young men shall see visions”{Joel 2:28}. A young man is someone with 6 years like Samuel and 100 year’s because they both saw visions between this age range.

    I hoped you’ve been blessed by this post. Please comment, contribute and share. Thanks.

    What is Vision?

    Whenever we hear the word vision anywhere near the church, we are always inclined to thinking of a situation where an anointed individual is sensing or seeing something very unusual but vision is much more than that. In this post, I’m going to be broadening your view about this subject of vision.
    So, what is vision?

    It is the discovery of God’s plan and purpose.

    In my previous post I talked about purpose not being something you decide but something to be discovered and here, we see that there is a huge relationship between purpose and vision because vision is the process of discovering it. Note that there are so many ways of discovering it which I shall be discussing later on. This was the kind of vision that opened up Christ’s ministry here on earth.

    It is an attraction getting event

    After Christ got the vision of God’s purpose for Him, the bible recorded, ‘…the eyes of everyone in the synagogue was fastened upon Him'{Luke 4:20}. Also when Moses got the vision of the burning bush, he said, ‘I must look to see this great sight for the bush burneth without being consumed'{Exodus 3:2} It becomes very difficult for you to be seen, favoured, remembered if you’re yet to see God’s plan and purpose for you.

    It is your thinking

    ‘For as a man thinketh in his heart so is he…'{Proverbs 23:7}. Visions, dreams, and imaginations are some of the most powerful forces on the earth ‘…because it will surely come to pass, it will not tarry{Habakkuk 2:3}. Although Joseph’s vision was delayed for years, it came to pass. Although Caleb and Joshua’s vision of conquest delayed for over 40 years, it still came to pass likewise that of the other 10 spies who envisioned defeat and death.

    It is as far as your eyes can see

    ‘God said unto Abram, lift up thine eyes northward, southward, westward and eastward. For all the land which thou seest shall I give to you and your seeds'{Genesis 13:14-15}. Similarly, God is saying, look from Genesis to Malachi, from Matthew to Revelation and all the boldness, godliness, grace, power, prosperity etc will be yours.

    I hope I’ve been able to help you understand the word vision? All your comments, contributions, question and feedback are welcomed. Please also remember to share with your friends. God bless you.

    How To Deal With Masturbation And Pornography

    FLEE FROM EVERY APPEARANCE OF EVIL: What you see determines what you think. Fleeing not just physically but every part of you. Do away with those website, books, pop songs, devilis confessions, movies, devices… also remember to distance yourself from those friends who are not living right because evil communiaction corrupts good manners.

    MAKE PUBLIC RESOLUTIONS: I don’t mean you go telling people about your condition but in times of altar calls in your church, seminars… come out boldly and declare right there to yourself in front of God’s altar that you are done with such additions. Make vows that will keep you in faith and be determined not to go back to your old ways. It takes a lot of courage to come out in public to confess your sins and to receive Christ but it brings the feel of seriousness and genuity hence spuring you to hold fast.

    FORGET IT AND SHUN FEAR: Is it really possible to forget? Yes. Just live your normal life with God and stop thinking you have a problem. This is faith. Interestingly most people can’t stop out of fear of themselves. You no longer trust yourself because you feel so guilty about it-but just move on for Jesus has already overcome for you.
    Say that to the devil and he will flee.

    PRODUCTIVE ENGAGEMENT: Personally I don’t think you enjoy this more than making money or some other things you like. Try to be more engaged in other things and with time you will lose interest. You love the internet so much but it happens to be your main reason for doing this? ok. Why don’t you start a blog & dedicate your time to being useful.

    SPIRITUAL EXERCISES: This is an oppression of the devil and Jesus was called to deliver the oppressed so, call on Him for deliverance. Make kingdom service, fasting, prayer and praising God a lifestyle.

    I hope this was helpful to you. Please share this with your friends and also remember to share or add your views. God bless you as you do so.

    What The Word Is

    There are scriptures in the bible that would help us in getting an in-depth look at what The Word really is and I shall showing them to you via this post.
    So what is The Word?
    TRUTH: “…thy word is truth”{Jo
    hn17:17} and “…the truth shall set you free”{John8:32}. When The Word is in you, you can never be under the devil’s oppression.

    LIGHT:”Thy word is lamp unto my feet and light unto my path”{Psalms119:105}. Whenever light appears, darkness disappears.

    SPIRIT: “…the words that I speak to you, they are spirit and they are life”{John 6:63}. A spirit is untouchable.

    POWER:”Where the Word of a king is, there is power”{Ecclesiastes 8:4}.

    A WEAPON: “For the Word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than a two edged sword…”{Hebrews4:23}

    WISDOM:”The entrance of thy word giveth understanding”{Psalms 119:130}

    A SEED: Remember the parable of the sower{Matthew 13:3-23} and that is why The Word produces different level of success in different individuals.

    The list Goes on and on. Whenever you lay hold of The Word, anything that it represent begins to manifest in you. As you take that step of getting closer to the Word of God, I see your story changing. Please remember that it is not all about hearing but practicing also what has been commanded. God bless you.

    Why Do We Need Faith?

    “And what shall I more say? For the time would fail me to talk of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson and of Jephtah; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouth of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight age army of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again…”[Hebrews 11:32-40]

    The scripture above just gave us a brief summary of the benefits we tend to enjoy when we walk by the winning faith but I would love to break it down for us here. the benefits of walking by the winning faith are:

    For obtaining promises
    Abraham, Jacob etc

    Conquering fear
    Daniel and the 3 Hebrew boys


    For defeating the devil

    Jesus Christ

    For righteous living
    Joseph

    For obtaining supernatural strength
    Moses, Abraham, Samsom

    For moving God to act in favour
    The woman with the issue of blood, Blind Bartimus. etc

    …those are just some of the benefits of having the winning faith. Please if you know of any other benefit, please drop them via the comment box. God bless you.

    What Is Faith

    THE OPPOSITE OF FEAR: Fear is just a false immagination of danger. If you do not agree with my definition, the bible’s definition might convince you, ”Now faith is the substance of things (not an abstract feeling) hoped for, the evidence of things (not immaginary) not seen”.[Hebrews 11:1]

    AN EYE OPENER: Faith is an eye opener that
    enables one see beyond the physical. Abraham saw himself as the father of many nations even when he was
    still childless. God once said to Abraham, “lift up now your eyes and look from the place where you are… all the land which thou seest to thee will I give it and to thy seed forever”.[Genesis13:15]

    The question here is ‘is it possible for the eyes i
    of a man to see through all the length and breadth of an ordinary city let alone a big country like Israel while standing on a point?’

    We walk by faith and not by siten.

    A SPIRITUAL CONVERTER: Faith is one great converter that is capable of converting prophecies, dreams, visions, promises, the testimonies of others etc into reality in your own life.

    A SPIRITUAL WEAPON: Our Lord Jesus Christ once said ”…if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place: and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you”.[Matthew17:20]
    Examples of common mountains are

  • Mtn Kilomanjaro
  • Mtn Everest
  • Mtn Atlantic ocean
  • Mtn Eathquake
  • Mtn Mr President
  • Mtn Witchcraft
  • Mtn Unemployment
  • Mtn Poverty
  • Mtn Boko Harem
  • Mtn Hiv
  • etc

    Is there any mountain around you? drop their names into the comment box. They are all going to be levelled before you know it in Jesus name. Amen.

    How To Live A Life Of Signs And Wonders

    KNOW WHO YOU ARE: This has been a major issue among christians since the world began. When Elisha’s servant saw that they were being surrounded by the Syrian army, he became frightened because he didn’t know who he was but Elisha who knew who he was said,”Fear not: for they that be with us are greater than they that be with them…[2Kings 6:16-18]

    BELIEVE IN THE MINISTERATION OF ANGELS: The Holy Spirit has already been given to us to be our comforter i.e to proctect us and to make us comfortable and as such, you need not be afraid of anything.

    BELIEVE IN THE MINISTRATION OF ANGELS: All angels including angel Michael are subjects unto us. Angel Michael ability to defeat the devil shows that we are greater than all evil powers. All angels can be sent on errands to work for us as recorded,”My God has sent his angel and he hath shut the mouth of the lions”[Daniel 6:22]

    BE PRAYERFUL:If there is a man to pray, there is always a God to answer.

    PRAISE:Praise has a minimum of the doubled effect of prayer. Praise brought down Jericho’s wall, opened the prison gate for Paul and silas…

    SOUL WINNING: “…I have chosen you and ordained you that ye should bring forth fruit(win souls), that your fruit should remain; that whatsoever ye shall ask of the father in my name He will give it you”[John 15:16]

    TALK GOOD:Always dream big, talk big(not pride or lies),

    TESTIMONY: David testified of how he kill a bear and a lion and he ended up killing a giiant ,”for they overcame him by the blood of the lamb and the words of their testimony”[Revelation12:11]

    Benefits Of Signs And Wonders

    SUBDUING THE DEVIL: Without signs and wonders, the devil can never be subdued. All problems
    , diseases and oppression are of the devil and to deal with these, signs and wonders must be performed.

    MAKES YOU DIFFERENT: Signs and wonders is capable of making you different just as it made Daniel different from all other politician in his days.
    WITNESSING EFFECTIVELY: By witnessing effectively, I mean being able to prove to others that JESUS is the one and only true God. The apostles of old witnessed Christ effectively because signs and wonders followed them.

    PROOF OF BELIEF:The scriptures says, “And this sign shall follow them that believe…”(Mark 16:17). This means that for you to truly prove that you believe in God, you need to either perform or enjoy signd
    s and wonders.

    PROSEPERITY & PROMOTION: This is what most people in church are lookin for as everyone wants to prosper and do well. This is one of the things signs and wonders brings to the table.

    In Joseph’s life, signs and wonders was all around- right from his father’s house, he had the gift of interpreting dreams.
    In Portiphar’s house, he subdued the devil in Portiphar’s wife.
    In Portiphar’s house and also in the prison, he was different from others hence he was made to lead.
    When he interpreted Pharoah’s dream, he was being promoted from being a leader in the prison to ruling a nation.

    Know of any other benefit of signs and wonders? Please do well to share them with us via thw comment box. God bless you.

    What Are Signs And Wonders

    Signs and wonders are not ordinary occurrences, the are supernatural. When they happen, science, nature, philosophy is proved wrong.

    Signs and wonders brings about surprises and joy.

    ‘When God turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dreamed. Then was our mouth filled laughter…'(Psalm 126:1-2)

    Without being born again, you cannot be an agent of signs and wonders. 1

    ‘And when He had called Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power…'(Matthew 10:1)

    Signs and wonders do not occur on their own, they have to be provoked.

    God is the true source of signs and wonders.

    It takes faith to be able to provoke signs and wonders. Without faith it is impossible to please God. If you don’t pleaseGod, do not expect anything special from Him.

    Signs and wonders are to be worked out. You don’t just think it or talk it, you have to try you faith on it just s Peter tried his faith on walking on the sea and he succeeded

    Signs and wonders are pointers to the presence of God. ‘And a great multitude followed Hi when they saw the miracles He did…'(John 6:2)

    Signs and Wonders are entitlements of every believe.

    ‘And this signs shall follow them that believe;In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak in new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.'(Mark 16:17-18)

    The Gift Of Wisdom

    There are 3 basic types of wisdom which are
    devilish
    earthly
    godly.

    Amongst all the types of wisdom, Godly wisdom superceeds others as it gives you access to the common earthly wisdom and it won’t lead you into sin just as devilish wisdom would always do.
    My pastor told me that every man is being remembered for two things which are either for the problems you created or for the problems you solved.
    The gift of wisdom makes you a solution instead of being a problem.

    By the gift wisdom, Joseph was taken from the prison to become a prime
    minister in a strange land. As it is written,’pharoah said unto his servants, can we find anyone as this, a man in whom the spirit of God is?…forasmuch as God as shewed all this, there is known so discreet and wise as thou art…'(Genesis 41:38-44).

    By Godly wisdom, Daniel remained useful and important to different regimes of government as a politician despite all the power changes that took place then through death/inheritance and coup. He was a recognized solution provider as written,’…O Daniel, declare the interpretation thereof, forasmuch as all the wise men of my kingdom are not able to make known unto me the interpretion; but thou art able: for the spirit of the holy gods is in thee,'(Daniel 4:18). The gift of wisdom also made him find favour in the eyes of men as stated,’Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him: and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.'(Daniel 6:3).

    HOW TO GET THE GIFT OF WISDOM
    The first step is that of recieving the holy spirit into your life.
    Afterwards,’Covet earnestly….(1 Corinthians 12:31).

    Benefits Of Soul Winning

    I never knew that soul winning had so many benefits until one of my pastors shared some of the benefits with us in church and I shall be using this medium to share them with you. The benefits of soul winning are:

    DIVINE BREAKTHROUGH:
    The divine breakthrough enjoyed here is for both parties. In my church, so many testimonies have been gotten via the platform of soul winning. When Christ went out for soul winning, every of his words had power. This power brought about a net-breaking draught of fishes in the same river that Peter couldn’t catch anything all night.
    We have a fair God who loves fairness and justice. Had it been that Peter didn’t catch anything when Christ asked him to cast his net into the river, he wouldn’t have given his life to Christ and as such, died a sinner. Just try to imagine what would have happened on judgement day if Peter was to say he refused to give his life to Christ because there was no evidence to show that He was Christ. This same thing can happen with you. All you need is to speak and things would just start happening because God wouldn’t want anyone who refuses to give his life to Christ to have a commanding excuse as the one stated above.

    DIVINE BEAUTIFICATION: Most people do not go out for evangelism or for soul winning because of shyness or some minor limitations but the simple truth is that whenever you go out for soul winning{with understanding}, you would be beautified by God just as the bible recorded, ‘And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever'[Daniel 12:3].

    DIVINE PROTECTION: The scriptures says, ‘…Go ye into the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved. And these sign shall follow them that believe: in my name shall they cast out devils, they shall speak with new tongue; They shall take up serpents and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them and they shall lay their hands on the sick and they shall recover'[Matthew 16:15-18].

    DIVINE HEALTH: Immediately you got born again, that scripture above is being directed to you and as such, you are being seen as a messenger or an ambassador. The bible says, ‘A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health'[Proverbs 13:17].

    PRAYER ANSWERS: One of the conditions attached to prayer answers is soul winning- ‘Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and ordained you, that ye should in and bring forth fruit{win souls} and that your fruit remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the father in my name, he may give it you'[John 15:16]

    DIVINE WISDOM: The bible says, he that winneth souls is wise. I do love scriptures which sound like this. It very apt and direct. That passage simply means that if you are able to win souls for christ, whether you like it or not, wisdom has been deposited in you.

    Wow! Soul winning really pays. Start now!!!

    Understanding Spiritual Gifts

    There are several spiritual gifts being given out by God to born again christians.

    All these gifts come from the same spirit and the spirit is called The Holy Spirit.

    ‘Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same spirit'[1 Corinthians 12:4].

    After anyone receives Christ, at least one spiritual gift must be given to that person and this gift would serve as a sign.

    ‘Wherefore tongues{and other gifts} are for a sign…'[1 Corinthians 14:22].

    Different gifts are for different purposes and God distributes these gift at His own will.

    ‘But all these worketh, that one and the selfsame spirit, dividing to everyone as He will'[1 Corinthians 12:11].

    Spiritual gifts are not permanent.

    ‘…whether there be prophecies, they shall fail: whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away'[1 Corinthians 13:8].

    Having a spiritual gift is not a guarantee that you will make heaven.

    You can ask God for any particular spiritual gift and receive it.

    ‘But covet earnestly the best gift…'[1 Corinthians 12:31]

    Spiritual gifts can be impacted from one person on another in different dimensions. Elijah impacted his on Elishah in double dimensions. Moses also impacted on Joshua. Paul also did.

    ‘And when Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Ghost came on them: and they spake with tongues and prophesied'[Acts 19:6].

    How Can Someone Receive The Holy Spirit?

    The Holy Spirit is the spiritual being which was sent to us by our Lord Jesus Christ and there is need for us to receive Him into our lifes. There are so many ways for receiving Him and I would be sharing some of them with you. They are:
    BELIEVE IN GOD: Believing in God is the first requirement for receiving the Holy Spirit. The scriptures says, ‘ He that believeth on me …out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water'[John 7:38]

    BE BORN AGAIN: The Holy spirit doesn’t dwell in filthy environments that’s why He is called holy and this makes it a necessity for you to be born again and then live a holy life so that He can dwell in you. The bible says, ‘Even the spirit of truth whom the world [sinners] cannot receive because it seeth Him not neither knoweth Him…'[John 14:17]

    THIRST FOR IT: To receive the Holy Ghost, you must thirst genuinely for Him as the scripture saith ‘…if any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink'[John 7:37]

    PRAYER: Our Lord Jesus Christ said, ‘…I will pray the father and He shall give you another comforter…'[John 14:16] To give something to me, you need to stretch out your hands and for me to receive that gift, I need to reach out for it by stretching out my hands too. This same phenomenon is needed because our Lord Jesus Christ has prayed for it and to receive it, we ought to pray too.

    HAVE FAITH: Without faith, it is impossible to please God and if you don’t please God, you can’t get anything from Him. Your prayers can never be effective except it is backed up with faith as written in the scriptures, ‘And all things whatsoever ye ask, believing, ye shall receive.'[Matthew 21:22] Furthermore, the Holy Spirit was promised and we need to follow the footsteps of our fathers ‘who through faith, obtained promises'[Hebrews:11:33]

    LISTENING TO GOD’S WORD: The scriptures saith, ‘While Peter yet spake the word of God, the Holy Ghost fell upon all them which heard the word'[Acts 10:44]

    LAYING OF HANDS: Through laying of hands by someone who already has the Holy Spirit, the spirit can be impacted. The bible recorded- ‘And when Paul had laid his hand upon them, the Holy Ghost came upon them: and they spake with new tongues and prophesied’.[Acts19:6] Speaking in tongues and prophesies are the major proof of the presence of the Holy Spirit in one’s life.

    Please add any other way for recieving the Holy Spirit you know in the comment box. Also remember to share this with your friends. God bless you.

    Why Do We Need The Holy Spirit?

    The Holy Spirit is the third person in the Holy Trinity and He was sent to us our Lord Jesus Christ after He ascended into heaven. The Holy Spirit dwells only in holy people and His job is to help and to give comfort. In this post, I shall be sharing with you 5 reasons why you need the Holy Spirit as I was taught in my church. They are:
    HE GIVES YOU POWER: Without the Holy Spirit, you are powerless as a christian. It might interest you to know that the major difference between christianity and othe religion is power and as such the Holy Spirit should always be in you. The scriptures said, ‘But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you'[Acts 1:8]

    HE GUIDES YOU: Whenever you read the word of God without understanding, then you know that you didn’t give the Holy Spirit His place in your life to guide you. The scripture says, ‘…when the Holy Spirit is come upon you, He will guide you into all truth: for He will not speak of His himself: but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall he speak and He will shew you things to come'[John 16:13]. Also, when you pray, you need the Holy Spirit to guide you on how to pray and what to pray for.

    HE KEEPS YOU FROM SIN: Most times, when you make your your mind to stop a particular sin, it would be difficult because you didn’t engage the help of the Holy Ghost. He is your helper and as such you can call on Him to keep you from sin. The bible says, ‘…walk in the Spirit and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh'[Galatians 5:16].

    HE SEALS YOUR SALVATION: When you have the Holy Spirit at work in your life, it becomes extremely difficult for you to deviate from the way of the Lord because He is the seal of your salvation that prevents you from backsliding. The bible said, ‘In whom ye trusted after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom after that ye believed, ye were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise'[Ephesians 1:13]

    HE GIVES YOU BOLDNESS: Before the Holy Spirit came upon Peter, he wasn’t bold enough to confess Jesus Christ even in front of a little girl but after the Holy Spirit came upon him, he was empowered to confess Jesus before 3000 persons. The Holy Spirit gives you boldness as written, ‘For God hath not given us the spirit of fear but of power, and of love and of a sound mind'[2 Timothy 1:7]
