|A kind, strong, helping hand|
The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound,
but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going.
So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” John 3:6, 8 (NIV)
Just as we don’t see the actual wind but the effects of it, we don’t see the Holy Spirit. We experience His working.
We notice a person’s peaceful demeanor when we are around them. They share in another’s joy. We see their loving concern when they inquire about someone’s need or that person’s health.
They wait patiently for answers to prayer and outcomes in their lives and in the lives of others.
The person who possesses the Holy Spirit displays gentleness and is faithful to his or her word. He or she always uses kind words when speaking of others.When that person is dealing with difficult issues in his or her life, he or she has their emotions under control.
All these qualities we see in others’ life are only present because of the Holy Spirit working in their lives. When someone possesses these qualities, they don’t have to say they are a Christian. Their attitude and conduct speaks for them.
Thank You for placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts. Thank You for letting Him change us into who You want us to be. Please guide us as we walk the Christian path that we may do all things to please You. In the name of Christ, we pray. AMEN
