Before I dive into this post I would first like to thank everyone who followed, liked, shared and read my last posts. I really appreciate you all, I also apologise for being awol for a while was battling writers block. In case you missed my previous post, here it is – Why not try again.
Imagine you had a destination or a place to go, a place you don’t know, a road you aren’t familiar with. To make matters worse your GPS isn’t getting any satellite signal. You then had to drive round and round, depending on people to direct you. Their directions appear suspect and you end up getting into bad roads that damage your car and are unable to get to your destination. Your time is wasted; your journey has to be put on hold. If only you had a working GPS to direct you, you wouldn’t have gotten on the bad roads.
I would like you to imagine your life as a car, and the world we live in as the open road we drive on. It’s easy to get lost on this road, take wrong turns, be on the wrong road, which eventually affects when and how we reach our destination. That is where the GPS comes in or in this case, GPS means General Positioning Spirit. This is the spirit that we have in us naturally, till we get connected to the Satellite which can be likened to God through His Son Jesus Christ. We are driving through life’s road without a guide. A lot of times in my life I have wasted time and energy doing things that weren’t pertinent to my destination or my destiny. Time that cannot be gotten back, actions I totally regretted doing.
I have heard stories where people would say that they almost took a bus or boarded a plane or travelled by a boat that went on to have an accident but they didn’t because something in them told them not to enter. I have heard accounts from people saying they almost made a decision or did something but then something in them told them not to some listened some disobeyed and regretted it in the end. You might be wondering what that voice is or that thing in them that told them what to do and what not to is. It’s simple, that is the Holy Spirit of God or for the purpose of this writing, the GPS which stands for God’s Positioning Spirit.
What /Who is this GPS or Holy spirit?
The Holy Spirit is the spirit of God, Gods spirit that was promised to us by Jesus when he was about going back to heaven as seen in, John 14:16 – And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever. This comforter which Jesus promised us is the Holy Spirit or The GPS.
What does the Holy Spirit do?
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. The Holy Spirit as Jesus promised us would be sent to us to teach us the things which we should know, how we should go, where we should go and when we should go just like a GPS would give you directions saying, “go left”,” go right”, “ take the next turn”,” bad roads ahead.”If we don’t have the Holy Spirit in our lives or if we fail to listen, we will just be doing our own thing and that isn’t safe especially in a world we know nothing about.
Apart from directing and ordering our steps, the Holy spirit teaches us about God, puts the attribute of God in us, as in Gal 5:22-23; but the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance and many more.
How can you get the Holy Spirit?
To get the Holy Spirit you have to be connected to God’s satellite first – you have to know Him. There is no other way to get God’s network except through God’s network provider which is Jesus Christ. The bible confirms in John 14:6-7; Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also; and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. So when you have subscribed to God’s network, all the bugs and malware in your life would be formatted and you will be returned back to factory settings where you can easily connect to God’s satellite. After being connected also, your connection which is your faith has to be strong. The only way to have a strong connection with God is by developing your faith through having a relationship with God via prayers, quiet time, reading the Word of God. How else can you believe in a God you can’t see except by faith? Hebrew 11:1;Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Also without faith we can’t please God. Hebrew 11:6; But without faith it is impossible to please him; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. The moment you are able to accept and be saved by Jesus, automatically God’s spirit will come upon you and as you strengthen your connection with God further, the Holy Spirit manifests in you. You also need to always be obedient to the Holy Spirit.
In conclusion, going through life’s road without God’s Positioning Spirit can be really stressful as often times we would just be going in circles, until God’s Positioning Spirit gives us guidance and direction straight from God the Father who knows all. Please try to get connected to God’s satellite as going through life on your own is risky, dangerous, and unnecessary strenuous.
