Christian believers would not be easily disconcerted or defeated despite challenges and adversities had they faith in the filling of the Holy Spirit. Meeting the harsh and often grievous realities of life requires you not only identify with, but possess the Divine power which makes you an overcomer.
No one believer may claim they have been left out or denied God’s great gift of the Holy Spirit. Luke 11:13, assures, “…your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him”. Simply ask, God’s authority is available for use in every endeavor of your Christian labor.
Early disciples were given eternal life and made New Creations as they were baptized in the Holy Spirit at Pentecost; additionally, they received the filling of the Holy Spirit. They obtained what you now may have, the one who raised Jesus from the dead.
What greater assurance of faith can one have than to know you have the living presence of God within you. Nothing and no one can throw you off course, for as I John 4:4, declares, “greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world”. You are the very sons and daughters of God, and He has come to make His home in you.
