A short essay of the scripture translated from the original language
|1 John 4:13 - "ἐν τούτῳ γινώσκομεν ὅτι ἐν αὐτῷ μένομεν καὶ αὐτὸς ἐν ἡμῖν, ὅτι ἐκ τοῦ Πνεύματος αὐτοῦ δέδωκεν ἡμῖν." Translated: "By this we know we abide in Him and He in us, because out from the Spirit of Him He has given to us."
The Holy Spirit is strong. Is it in you? Yes. Do you recognize and interact with it? Perhaps not. Becoming led by the Holy Spirit is not necessarily the easiest thing. It is difficult to get it started sometimes, but once you do it becomes increasingly easier. First you have to recognize the Spirit. The easiest way is to feel a 'conscience'. People talk about their conscience, there is no conscience, it is the Holy Spirit. When you feel something tugging at you that you think is your conscience, it is the Spirit. It is at this point that the enemy will try to break your connection. Where it is so hard to engage. But if you stop, and realize this is the Holy Spirit attempting to lead you, and follow it, you have that feeling of accomplishment. Then next time you feel the Spirit, you recognize it and how it feels inside you. Then you follow it again...and it becomes easier to feel and understand. Soon you will be able to interact with the Spirit and your connection with God will strengthen beyond description. You will feel Him inside you like never before, and in a way those who do not allow the Spirit to guide them will never feel. Find the Spirit, and let it lead you, it will NOT lead you wrong!
