Having been prayerfully reflecting, I woke up Friday am being reminded by the Holy Spirit of a powerful truth and asset concerning the Holy Spirit. I immediately saw it for our reflection and reminder through this medium this morning. The most powerful truth and asset for a believer in God is the very presence of Jesus Christ through the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit. Nothing seems most profound a reality from the Scriptures than this truth: that He who created the entire universe including humanity, you and I is always a personal God abiding with us 24X7 in and under any circumstances if we believe! This truth is entrenched in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
God is Spirit and created us as a spiritual being so we can relate to Him and He with us (Genesis 1:26-28, 2:7). In spite of his transgressions, as Jacob trusted and returned back to God, he was assured, “Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land. For I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” (Genesis 28:15). Talking o Moses with a definitive assurance as he led the people of Israel, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” (Exodus 33:14). King David walked with and depended on God and believed Him thus, “You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever” (Psalm 16:11).
The powerful Psalm 139 assured that no one can hide from God. The God-incarnated and resurrected Jesus promised us His Holy Spirit (John 14-16) and also assured His constant presence (Matt 28:20). All these are a source of empowerment to us. (2 Tim 1:7). Dr. Johnson Omoni
