Stepping Stone #11

How to Become God's Property

Psalms 62:1

Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from Him cometh my salvation.

I trust you're taking one step each day which is vital to your success. Your patience in waiting does not go unnoticed by your Father.

I join you again today with much enthusiasm, because this Stepping Stone is really something to be excited about.

Today we are going to talk about the Holy Spirit. You noticed that the title of this step is Christian Surrender to the Lord and Savior, and you might be thinking that all we are talking about is surrendering your problem.

But, that is not all.

To become God's Property fully, we are also talking about surrendering your time to the Holy Spirit ... The Comforter that Jesus left us to help us with all of our problems. What does it mean to be filled with the Holy Spirit? It means to voluntarily surrender your life to the control of the Holy Spirit who lives within you.

Remember ...

1 Corinthians 6:19

What? know ye not that your body is the Temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

He is the provider of the Truth that we have been talking about in this God's Property Path and in Truth.

He is the Spirit of Truth:

John 14:16-18

16 And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of Truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

John 14:26

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 15:26

But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of Truth, which proceedeth from the Father, He shall testify of me:

John 16:7-8

7 Nevertheless I tell you the Truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send Him unto you.
8 And when He is come, He will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

John 16:13-15

13 Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come.
14 He shall glorify me: for He shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that He shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

We need the reality of God to actually be in our lives. The Holy Spirit is real. He was sent to be with you forever. A sign that you are God's Property.

Christian Surrender to the Lord and Savior is Essential

The Holy Spirit is a real entity, not some cool ideology or peaceful bed time story. He can speak and has a rather unique personality. He wants to be your friend.

He is God's Spirit ...

Never forget Jesus or God, but you cannot be in touch with them without the Holy Spirit.

John 4:24

God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in Truth.

Seek the voice of the Holy Spirit in your soul. He will speak to you if you listen:

Hebrews 3:7

Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear His voice,

And He will even tell you exactly what to do and say when confronted with problems.

Luke 12:12

For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

Being God's Property, the Holy Spirit talks with our own spirit and reveals to God what is in or heart.

Romans 8:26-27

26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the Saints according to the will of God.

The spirit of man is a divine light, a candle of the Lord's lighting.

Proverbs 20:27

The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.

That part is so cool. Being God's Property, the Holy Spirit knows your deepest and darkest secrets.

Christian Surrender to the Lord and Savior Today

Pray With the Holy Spirit

When you pray ... Pray to God through Jesus, by the Holy Spirit. He is the best prayer partner there is.

Get to know the Holy Spirit better. He is right there with you. Never ignore the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit gives out an incredible sensation that feels like electric running down your spine. You will know it when you feel it.

When the Holy Spirit abides within you, He will answer any and all of your questions, but you have to choose to ask Him. You may begin to feel unworthy and may even begin to cry but that is because you know He can see inside of you.

But always remember ... His Grace.

The Holy Spirit will become more and more present in your life when you become God's Property.

Invite the Holy Spirit to read the Bible with you and explain to you the things you don't understand. You'll find wisdom like you never found before in your Bible when the Holy Spirit is your reading partner. The Holy Spirit is from God and was given to us to teach us of God.

Become excited to study and pray with the Holy Spirit. When you leave your study place, ask the Holy Spirit to join you as you go about your regular routine, and He will.

Get the bad weeds out like you have learned all along this God's Property path, then fill the void with the Holy Spirit of Truth.

Christian Surrender to the Lord and Savior by way of the Holy Spirit. Many things happen when the Holy Spirit enters your life. You will become a changed person. Your actions and reactions will be decided by the Spirit as will your instincts, as you become renewed.

You get to know His presence. You can feel when He is near. The more you talk with Him, the deeper the relationship becomes just as with any relationship.

But it is a two way street on God's Property Boulevard.

The Holy Spirit is right there with you, do not quench the Holy Spirit by ignoring or denying Him.

1 Thessalonians 5:19

Quench not the Spirit.

His feelings can be hurt. He is a Spirit, so He is a bundle of emotions. Kind of like an innocent child.

When you hurt a child you scare them off, but if you show love to a child they never want to leave. He wants to stay close to those that love Him. When you leave, He leaves.

On this God's Property Stepping Stone, I urge you to invite the Holy Spirit to fill your life. Talk to Him with your heart ... Listen to Him with your heart.

In your mind's eye, get out a big white flag and Surrender to the:

Put the world aside and hang out with the Holy Spirit! Spend a few minutes a day to just talk with Him. You can include this as one of your Miracle Grow activities if you like.
