Topic: The God Advantage [TREM Devotional Wednesday May 30, 2018]
“Nevertheless, I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.” John 16:7 NKJV
Every Child of God is advantaged and not disadvantaged. The fact that you are connected to God, gives you an advantage over everyone else that’s walking the streets; you are not ordinary. Therefore, it is your responsibility to leverage on this, maximize your advantage. Far too many believers are walking around confused, depressed, disillusioned and this should not be the case. The Bible tells us that God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.
You see the Holy Spirit is our God-given advantage. Beloved, don’t toy with your relationship with the Holy Spirit. Jesus said it is to your advantage that I go because if I don’t, you won’t have the Helper. Therefore, you need the Helper, He gives you the edge over everyone else, He is available to tell you how to go about your business, your job, your family, your finances, your Christian life, He is there to help you be the best you can be in all spheres of endeavour. He was sent into the world to help you, to teach you, to counsel you, that is His assignment.
The help of the Holy Spirit is endless, but how many of us are taking advantage of our Helper? How many of us truly take out time to fellowship with the Holy Spirit? Have you asked Him about how to go about that contract, interview? Have you asked Him to reveal the scriptures to you? I urge you today to take out time to fellowship with the Holy Spirit, leverage on your advantage and change your world.
