Our X-Factor

We’ve been studying the Holy Spirit in our Church for two (2) weeks now. Now, my knowledge about His works has become clearer to me.

Last February 12, I’ve learned that the Holy Spirit is our X-factor to level up in our life and there can never be an exceptional harvest, without His active, dynamic, personalized work. In short, without Him our exceptional harvest is impossible. Also, the Holy Spirit is the gift that the Father promise to give for us.

Once when he was eating with them, he commanded them, Do not leave Jerusalem until the Father sends you the gift he promised, as I told you before. 5 John baptized with water, but in just a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”
(Acts 1:4-5, NLT)

Once we receive the Holy Spirit, he will fill us with power, authority, wisdom and discernment.

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
(Acts 1:8, NLT)

Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you.”
(Luke 10:19, NLT)

Last Sunday, Pastor Anthony describes the Holy Spirit as the “Wind beneath our wings”. We even sang the Wind beneath my wings by Bette Midler.

Did you ever know that you're my hero (HELPER),
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.


The main context of the message came from the book of Isaiah 40:28-31, NLT, “Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”

The Holy Spirit is the wind of God. The eagle knows how to wait for the wind because the eagles knows that the stronger the wind, the higher he soars. We need the Holy Spirit like the eagle needs the wind.

There are three (3) things for us to know about the Holy Spirit.

First, we should APPRECIATE the Holy Spirit. Like us human, we love to be appreciated by our fellow human being and He is also like that. He loves to be appreciated, to valued and to be enjoyed.

Second, we should ACKNOWLEDGE the Holy Spirit. To acknowledge Him means to recognize His authority in our lives.

Lastly, we should ALLOW the Holy Spirit. Allow means to let, to permit, to yield and to submit. Do not box the Holy Spirit because He can do great and mighty things in your life and God is not looking for beautiful vessel, He is looking for yielded vessel.

Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ he wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
(John 3:5-8, NIV)


We must recognize one important factor that you and I need today. THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Remember…

The Christian life is an exceptional life.
The exceptional life is a supernatural life.
It is the level of the impossible!
It is where the impossible becomes possible.
It goes beyond logic, human reasoning.


Let’s pray.

Dear Daddy God,

Father, we thank you for our comforter, helper and teacher which is the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit, we appreciate you, we acknowledge your unlimited power and we allow you to move in every area in our lives. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen!
