Today’s 333 Devotional: “Bringing Back the Spirit for Thanksgiving”
It was the Holy Spirit who led the Pilgrims to make this journey to this new land and to start a new work for God, a new work that would form a nation whose foundation would be Jesus Christ, and a nation that would adhere to follow God’s word.
And to get us back to what God had originally set forth for us as a nation to be, we need to bring back the Holy Spirit. But such a work cannot be legislated; rather it must be enacted within our lives.
Take a look with me at several elements of the Holy Spirit’s work.
First He Guides Us
The Holy Spirit will guide us. To guide means that He will lead us and show us the way we are to walk in this world.
“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not be presenting his own ideas; he will be telling you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future.” (John 16:13)
Next, He Abides With Us
As believers in Jesus Christ, we are not facing life all alone because Jesus promised that He would not abandon us as orphans. And so He sends to us the Holy Spirit to live and abide within us continually.
“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever.” (John 14:16)
And finally, He Encourages Us
If there is anything that we need more of in this world is encouragement. Jesus said that He would not leave us as orphans, and it’s the Holy Spirit that reinforces that in our lives.
“The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.” (Romans 8:16)
And so, seeing that the Holy Spirit guides us, abides within us, and encourages us should we be anything but thankful.
