As Believers, we must be aware of the Holy Spirit’s presence, or we will never know how to tap into His power. He lives within each of us;
therefore, we have the answer on the inside of us to every problem we
face. However, to receive His divine resolutions, we must begin to
cultivate a relationship with Him.

A. “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your
remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you” (John 14:26).

1. The Holy Spirit will help us in our everyday lives. He will bring teachings from the Word to our remembrance.

a. He enables us to have wisdom and success.

b. He gives us revelation of God’s Word and shows us things to come.

c. The Holy Spirit is a person, not a thing.

2. The Holy Spirit deposits the love of God in our hearts when we become born again (Romans 5:5).

a. The power of God is necessary to live a fruitful, productive life as a Christian.

b. Love is the foundation of the Christian life; love is linked to the power of God.

c. Both love and the anointing come from the Holy Spirit, and He lives within every Believer.

3. Like us, the Holy Spirit has a personality, which is the anointing or the divine enablement of God.

a. To anoint means to rub on; when we spend a certain amount of time with someone, his or her personality rubs off on us.

b. Likewise, when we spend time with the Holy Spirit, His personality (anointing) changes us.

B. “But as for you, the anointing (the sacred appointment, the unction) which you received from Him abides [permanently] in you…” (1 John 2:27, AMP).

1. The unction is a divine empowerment to do what you do in life (such as a call to ministry).

a. The Holy Spirit will reveal to you God’s specific will for your life.

2. The Greek word for anointing is charisma, and it describes a divine smearing or endowment of inherent qualities on the inside of us.

a. Because we are endowed with the power of the Holy Spirit, we have the ability to do anything Jesus did when He came to the earth.

b. Jesus said a Believer can be like God in character, and also in the demonstration of power.

c. However, to tap into this power, we must consistently spend quality time fellowshipping with the Holy Spirit.

C. Do not ignore the presence of the Holy Spirit within you; acknowledge Him.

1. Refuse to believe that you cannot hear His voice. For example, you can sense His leading when you do something wrong.

2. He convicts us of our sins, but He also helps us make the necessary adjustments.

a. A hardened heart comes from disobedience.

b. At times, the voice of our flesh (or our own desires) speaks louder than the Holy Spirit.

c. Therefore, to develop our sensitivity to His voice, we must obey Him.

When we obey the Holy Spirit, He shows us the path to the life God wants us to live
