”Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? (Psalms 139:7)

The great privilege of a  Christian believer is the presence of holy spirit. The God’s incomparably great power that is the holy spirit dwells in us. Our body is the temple of the holy spirit. Holy Spirit is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine in our lives. The spirit of God comforts us when we are in trouble, give guidance to take life decisions, strengthens us during our weakness, our  peace in grief situations and be with us till the very end of age.

Once you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved and the holyspirit begin to take control over your life. It can perceive your thoughts from afar, you can’t flee away from the presence of God.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?

If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,

even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,”

even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.(Psalms 139:7-12)

God is our creator. We are fearfully and wonderfully made by the hands of God. Everything God does will endure forever. Nothing can be added to it and nothing can be taken from it.So what a great privilege that the spirit of God resides in us. The same power that raises Christ from death is dwell inside believers of Christ. His mighty power can turn anything possible. Surrender our life fully into the hands of creator, may holy spirit lead you. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”(Isaiah 30:20).Sometimes we follow our own voices and neglect  holyspirit which leads to a dead end.

Seek the presence of God. Finally be strong in his power and in  his mighty strength. Let the power of holyspirit may drives away our fear, anxious thoughts.. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.(2 Timothy1:7)The best antidote to anxious thoughts is  to seek the presence of God. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul(Psalms 94:19).You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand(Psalms 16:11).

The best antidote to grief is to seek the peace of God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.(Philippians 4:7).So whatever life situations troubling you, remedy is found in the presence of God by his spirit we are victorious. Then he answered and spoke to me, saying, This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, said the LORD of hosts(Zechariah4:6). God’s presence is heaven for us. Only God’s presence can satisfy human souls.

The Holy Spirit cannot dwell in an unclean person, particularly, an unclean Christian.” unclean” Christian is a believer who is living in known sin. The Christian demands  to the Holy Spirit’s leading in their life, they are “filled” with the Spirit, thus are controlled by the Spirit (Galatians 5:16, Ephesians 5:18). But even when the believer may drift  into sin, the Holy Spirit remains to convince the child of God that they are sinning (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). The Holy Spirit is the presence of God in the believer’s life to lead them to confession of sin and eventual forgiveness (1 John 1:9).

Lead a holy life so holyspirit can resides inside us.
