Walking With The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the best gift to mankind after the blood of Jesus Christ that was shed on the cross for our sins.

And if there is a way the Holy Spirit has helped me since I began my Christian/spiritual journey, it has been firstly, teaching me to have self control.

Thia fruit has been by far most visible all my little assignments.

When we begin working with the Holy Spirit on some of the weaknesses and vices in our lives, we begin to see the many things we allowed in our human spirit that did not help us grow and were/are actually a hindrance to who God has called us to become.

I believe we unconsciously learn some bad habits in life: all the way from our teachers, parents and society in our younger years; which subsequently, take us more years to unlearn.

Yesterday, somebody mentioned to me that I was changing and I almost went into a panic, defending myself and giving justifactions as to why that was not true. Just then, the Holy Spirit said to me that it was true. I was changing. I am changing; which is not a bad thing: where I was more rigid in some things, I am now relaxing, where I was relaxed on some issues, I am now head-strong about them.

And the Holy Spirit revealed to me that the beautiful process I was undergoing is called: santification, and for this case — learning the spirit of discernment.

I know some of people may probably wonder how it is possible to have discussions with the Holy Spirit. But Jesus said, that He would give the Holy Spirit to all who would believe in Him, even on His name.

John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

I speak to the Holy Spirit as I would to a friend. For He lives in me.

But you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His —  Romans 8:9

And the Holy Spirit prompts me to speak out loud the conflicts I experience within so that He may sanctify my mind. I can be walking and all of a sudden you may hear me whisper: judgement, procrastination, mistrust, strife, anger, dissatisfaction, inpatience out loud.


The Holy Spirit is my friend, my closest friend. And He is working in me so as to manifest all His fruits. His friendship actually means that: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control walk with me every where I go. He teaches, guides and convicts me.

Peace can all of a sudden say, “there is something wrong, I am no longer present” and I have to look deeply within myself and figure out what has gone wrong. This whole journey is not easy but it is exciting because I am learning like never before, growing and becoming into God’s wonderful masterpiece.
