Who is your closest friend or guide? We all have friends but they are not all on the same level of friendship, some are closer than others and one is closer than the rest. However, there is a personality that is closer to me than any friend that I may ever have, and He is the Holy Spirit. In this article I will be sharing more on the Holy Spirit as my closest friend and guide.
Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you" - Hebrews 13:5 (NKJV, emphasis mine).
However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come - John 16:13 (NKJV).
I have many friends but none is dear to me as the Holy Spirit. My human friends are wonderful and very helpful, but I won't trade the Holy Spirit for any of them. My friends are so limited in their ability to help and guide me. They don't stay with me all the time, they have other things to do too and they can only help me up to the level of knowledge they have.
Loop Entertainment presenting to you their first official single by the sensational Act 'Gad'. The act who is best known for dishing out nothing but good music from his kitchen is out with another mind blowing thrilling single titled 'Win Or Win'.
I know the title already making you ask yourself a lot of questions, well, find the answers for yourself by listening to this new tune.
Gospel music minister Tobby Joe releases a new single “Worthy is the Lamb” as a follow up to his last single “I will praise you“, which was well received by lovers of God and his worship.
“Worthy is the Lamb” has been described summarily as a sound that brings one into the very throne room of God as it soothes the spirit of the listener and makes him hunger and thirst for everything God.
When you say, “I can manage this problem by myself, Lord,” God says, “Okay, you do it then.” But when you say, “Help me, Lord! I need You. I cannot do this on my own,” God says, “Good, I have been waiting for you to say that. You cannot, but I can. Now, watch Me!” That is how God is—He loves it when you depend on Him.
You see, when you think that you are strong and don’t need God, He cannot help you. But when you need Him and look to Him, He will not leave you weak and helpless. He comes and becomes the strength of your life. He becomes the breakthrough that you need.
A church member with a smoking habit came to me one day and said, “Pastor Prince, please pray that God will help me. I want to stop my smoking habit.”
I told him simply, “You cannot, but God can.”
He replied, “Yes, I know that I can’t. But with God’s help, I will discipline myself and try my best to quit the habit.”
I told him, “No, you cannot, but God can.” I repeated this to him a few times until he realized that it was not his self-discipline or willpower that would help him overcome his smoking habit, but the power of God. He finally understood that true deliverance from this destructive habit would not come by his own strength, but by “[being] strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.”
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.
God’s going to get you for that! Most of us have said that kind of thing jokingly for years. We’ve somehow believed that God slaps us down with pain and punishment every time we sin. But that’s just not true. There are deadly wages for sin, but God is not the one who’s doling them out.
You see, the Bible tells us there’s been a curse in effect for thousands of years. And the devil is the cause of it, not the Lord God. God gave warning of it in Deuteronomy 30:19. After describing in detail the blessings that fall upon those who followed God and the terrible suffering that would befall those who separated themselves from Him, He said, “I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.”
