Isaiah 59:21 NIV 2011
“As for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the Lord. “My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of you children and on the lips of their descendants—from this time on and forever,” says the Lord.
God spoke of His covenant and staying with His people. Genesis 17:7, “I will establish an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you…” But a new covenant was to come. Jeremiah 21:31, “‘The days are coming,’ declares the Lord, ‘when I will make a new covenant with the people of Judah.’” God’s Spirit remained with His people. Luke 22:20, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.” The Spirit abides in all who make Jesus Lord of their lives.
If you’ve been awakened in the middle of the night at just the right time to help someone, you understand the workings of the Holy Spirit. I have a friend that saved her husband’s life exactly that way. When I found out her story I knew the Holy Spirit was involved. We serve a mighty God that uses His ways to reveal His power in our daily lives. Making a choice to follow Jesus Christ I know the Spirit abides in me.
How is the Spirit at work in our lives?
