Like a Wildfire, Invade Us Now—–

“Come set our hearts ablaze with hope
Like wildfire in our very souls
Holy Spirit come invade us now
We are Your Church
We need Your Power
In us”

Father, Son, Holy Spirit. I talk to God on a daily basis. He is my father and my strength. I thank Jesus for being my friend and savior. But rarely do I ask the Holy Spirit for help. Which is odd because the three make up the mysterious majesty of God, the Trinity.

Why do we talk about the Holy Spirit like he is an “it”? He is God, just like the father and the son. He is God’s Spirit in us. He came into our hearts, made us alive, revived us, when we accepted Him as Savior and our whole life. Yet, I rarely ever ask Him for help specifically. Of course, God is beyond us and this isn’t me trying to explain to you this phenomenon that is the Trinity. I believe and I have faith. But I admit that it’s hard for me to think of the Holy Spirit for who He is. Since Jesus isn’t on earth anymore, He is inside of us in our souls! Holy Spirit. An amazing supernatural experience. We are more than our earthly shell, beloved.

I was flipping to Psalms this morning and came across a diagram if you will of truths specifically about the Holy Spirit. I knew I had to share it with you all! It blessed me so much and I hope it will bless you as well! It opened my eyes to the weight of glory in the Trinity. I am so thankful that God loves us so much so that He sent His Spirit to dwell in us, His redeemed & born again children who believe in Him.

  1. I too have never thought much about praying to the Spirit. I pray to God but the Spirit is something that has taken me a while to grasp and come to terms with. I love the list of what he has done in both the old and new testament! I look forward to referring to this in the future:)
