In Luke 10:17-20, Jesus sent His disciples out two by two. They came back to Him with a report that demons were subject to His name; the anointing moved in those meetings, but Jesus told them, “Rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” What Jesus was saying to them is, “celebrate your relationship with Me and not the fact that demons are subject to you. If you are with Me and you abide with Me, they will always be subject to you.”
A strong relationship with the Holy Spirit will bring the power of God into your life, but the power of God will not generate a relationship with the Holy Ghost in your life.
Here are some of the things to do to maintain a relationship with the Holy Spirit:
1.Be born again (John 3:3-8).
2.Meditate on God’s Word (Joshua 1:8, 1 John 5:7).
3.Pray in tongues (Jude 20).
4.Avoid works of the flesh (Gal. 5:19-21).
5.Avoid grieving the Holy Spirit (Eph. 4:30).
6.Yield to him in your heart (Ezek. 14:3).
7.Acknowledge God in the things you do (Proverbs 3:6-9).
8.Enquire, ask questions and initiate communications with God (Ps. 27:4, Gen 25:22).
9.Repent, not explain when the Holy Spirit pricks your heart over any wrongdoing.
10. Always check your heart for what God feels about situations.
11.Pray until the feelings in your heart become clear. (Joshua 9:3-7; Gen 27:6-29).
12.When the skin feels like Esau’s and the voice like Jacob’s, don’t act, pray more!
PRAYER: Lord, I receive empowered eyes, empowered ears and empowered minds to pick divine signals in Jesus name. Amen!
