“Walk in the Spirit (let your steps be guided by the Spirit,) and you will not gratify the evil desires of the flesh.” Galatians 5:16
“Be filled with the Spirit.” Ephesians 5:18
Rich would the blessings of this day be if we were filled with the Holy Spirit. And the consequences of this sacred filling of the soul would be impossible to overestimate. Therefore, life, comfort, light, purity, power, peace, and many other precious blessings are inseparable from the Spirit’s gracious presence.
His Presence As…
- Sacred Oil — He anoints the head of the believer, sets him apart to the priesthood of saints, and gives him grace to execute his duties aright.
- Purifying Water — He cleanses us from the power of sin and sanctifies us unto holiness. And He is working in us to will and to do of the Lord’s good pleasure.
- Holy Light — He reveals the Lord Jesus to us and guides us in the way of righteousness. When we are enlightened by His pure celestial ray, we no longer walk in darkness, but in the light of Scripture truth.
- Purifying Fire — He both purges us from dross and sets our consecrated nature ablaze. And He is the sacrificial flame by which we are enabled to offer our whole souls as a living sacrifice unto God.
- Heavenly Dew — He removes our barrenness and nourishes our lives. O that He would drop from above upon us at this early hour! Such morning dew would be a sweet commencement for the day.
- Heavenly Dove — with wings of peaceful love, He broods over the souls of believers.
- Comforter — He dispels the cares and doubts which mar the peace of His beloved ones. He descends upon His chosen people, and bears witness to their sonship by working in them a filial spirit by which they cry Abba, Father!
- Wind — He brings the breath of spiritual life to men. And He performs the quickening operations by which the spiritual creation is animated and sustained.
O that we might feel the Spirit’s presence and influence this day and every day!
