Neh. 9:20 You gave your good Spirit to instruct them and did not withhold your manna from their mouth and gave them water for their thirst.

Everything about the Holy Spirit is good. He is the goodness of Almighty God in action. He is the Father’s love, power, guidance, instruction, and purity. He is all of this and more, He is a distinct person, a member of the incredible Trinity. Having access to Him is the greatest privilege anyone can fathom. People try to get close to famous humans, even an autograph can be quite valuable. The Holy Spirit is the most awesome person and his has come to make His home with me and in me. Here are some thoughts from Spurgeon about the wonderful Holy Spirit.

“Common, too common is the sin of forgetting the Holy Spirit. This is folly and ingratitude. He deserves well at our hands, for he is good, supremely good. As God, he is good essentially. He shares in the threefold ascription of Holy, holy, holy, which ascends to the Triune Jehovah. He is good benevolently, tenderly bearing with our waywardness, striving with our rebellious wills; quickening us from our death in sin, and then training us for the skies as a loving nurse fosters her child. How generous, forgiving, and tender is this patient Spirit of God. He is good operatively. All his works are good in the most eminent degree: he suggests good thoughts, prompts good actions, reveals good truths, applies good promises, assists in good attainments, and leads to good results. He is good officially; whether as Comforter, Instructor, Guide, Sanctifier, Quickener, or Intercessor, he fulfills his office well, and each work is fraught with the highest good to the church of God.”

Once we yield to the Lord we actually begin to take on His goodness. We begin to live under the influence of His goodness and our life and lifestyle change. We come under His power and we begin to receive goodness. His goodness provides our daily bread and brings health to our bodies . In this dark and foreboding world the church needs the goodness of the Holy Spirit more than ever. I believe (and predict) there will be another great swing back to the person of the Holy Spirit in the very near future. I think our world is becoming painfully aware of its need for the power of His presence.

  3. The comforters presence is truly needed! At times the Holy Spirit will show up to let me know He’s still around! Sometimes it feels like my behavior needs to change on occasion! But even though the Holy Spirit is always welcome in my life! His truthfulness inspires me to improve my Christian walk! Thanks my Lord Jesus Christ!
