The Key to Developing Relationship with The Holy Spirit (Morning)
Psalm 25:14 The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant
We need to know someone first before we can love them. To get to know someone, we first need to communicate with them. It takes time, process, and effort to get to know him better. Likewise, if we want to build a relationship with the Holy Spirit. Communication is the main key. The intense and uninterrupted one.
Many people experience the ups and downs of a relationship with the Holy Spirit. Some even cut ties with the Holy Spirit because they are disappointed about something. They start feeling bored to pray and read God’s Word, then have no more interest at all. Some still read the Bible, but they have lost their passion or feel that they have nothing to do with it. The love becomes cold, there is no more intimacy with the Holy Spirit. As in humans, without proper knowledge, there will be no deep bonds of affection or love. Without knowing who and how the Holy Spirit is, we will easily experience ups and downs in building a relationship with Him. Sometimes He feels close, but there are times when it feels far away. Does the Holy Spirit like to come and go from our lives? The answer is, of course not!
In the Bible it is written, the Lord is near with those who fear Him, and He shows His covenant to them. The Spirit of God is not a Spirit whom we cannot reach. He is not far away, the Holy Spirit is in the heart of every believer. The Holy Spirit is also very joyful if we realize His existence. Greet Him, invite Him to talk and discuss, and invite Him to participate in every activity we do. When we build a relationship with the Holy Spirit, we will know Him more deeply and love Him more. In this year of the Holy Spirit, He is ready and longing for us to come closer to Him, so that He can work fully in our lives.
The key to BUILDING RELATIONSHIP with the Holy Spirit is COMMUNICATION.
