Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit will never leave you. So, the Holy Spirit is always there.
John 14:16 NLT | “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you.”
Psalm 46:1 | ”God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”
So the Holy Spirit is always there. He is ever present with you.
You see, the issue isn’t whether or not the Holy Spirit is with you. The real issue is whether you are aware of His presence or not.
So many years ago —I was about 18 years or so—I had an encounter with the Holy Spirit where He told me that His mandate from the Father and the Son is to stay with us forever. He never leaves no matter what; that would be a violation of the will of the Father and Son.
“I’m always with you,” He said, “but you are not always aware of it.”
This is much like Jacob’s experience in Genesis 28:16,17 “When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, ‘Surely the LORD is in this place, and I was not aware of it.’ He was afraid and said, ‘How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven.’”
The Lord was there with Him, watching over him, guiding leading and protecting him each step of the way. Yet, he was not aware of it. But when He became aware of it, it changed His life forever!
As you go about your life today, know that the Holy Spirit is there with you. He will never leave you. He will not forsake you.
When you encounter unexpected difficulties, remember that the Holy Spirit is there. Tell yourself, “Though I may not feel it now, I know the Holy Spirit is right here with me and will not let me be defeated and disgraced.” Then ask for His help.
As you become more aware of His presence in your life, you will begin to experience more and more of the life of victory and abundance He has prepared for you.
