Holy Spirit Relationship

Sound thinking makes for gracious living, but liars walk a rough road. - Proverbs 13:15

How many believers have you encountered who gave the appearance that everything was solidly put together on the outside, but inside life was full of pain from relational, moral, spiritual and emotional traumas?  So often what we see underneath is an undiagnosed or untreated spiritual fracture in a person’s relationship with the Holy Spirit. By default that person loses his functional power of his spiritual life to help him grow, change, heal, and experience health in his relationship with God and people. These men try to move things forward but they just don’t have the inner strength and spiritual power to do it, they don’t know the “how to,” for them ignorance incapacitates.

The most prominent way our relationship with the Holy Spirit is broken is the lie. We lie to the Holy Spirit when we wear the mask of faith in order to deliver pleasure, satisfaction or approval to our flesh. His character will not allow deception of any kind. Satan’s work is subtle, always examine your motives

We find that many Christians don’t know how to because they don’t know what spiritual fractures look like when it comes to their relationship with the Holy Spirit. The good news is that regardless of the severity of the fracture it can be realigned like a broken bone in our body. He is still in our physical body, still being held together by the structure of faith and still holding the potential to powerfully heal us and make us spiritually stronger than we were before.  He wants you to be filled with the Holy Spirit, ask him. He loves you.

Father, help me to be true to myself and others.
