What does friendship with the Holy Spirit look like?
Well…the same dynamics that apply to your best friend also apply here.
Friends of the Holy Spirit carry a deep respect and loving reverence for Him.
We are more concerned about being with Him than about being with anyone else. And we care more for His presence than anything else.
Friends of the Holy Spirit trust Him.
He is perfectly reliable, and He knows what He’s doing. We may find ourselves in a place where obeying His voice brings about what seems to be a setback. In those times especially, we must simply say, “I don’t understand it, but I trust You.”
Friends of the Holy Spirit can hear Him.
He speaks in a still, small voice – a whisper.
Silence and stillness help us hear the sound of His voice. The Word helps us learn the vocabulary of His voice. And obedience helps us to become familiar with the tone of His voice.
Friendship with the Holy Spirit is life changing.
Never again do we have to face a day with even a slight sense of loneliness. At any given moment, we can become so aware of His presence that it seems as though there is someone else standing in the room with us. And there is.
Because once we are aware that He is near, once we know how to hear Him, the rest comes naturally and with ease.
Involve Him in your life.
