8 Things The Holy Spirit Will Do For You?.
Have you ever wonder who the person of the Holy spirit is and what He does? But in short explanation of the person of Holy Spirit, He’s the third in the right hand of the throne of God. He is not different from God and if you have seen the Father you have actually seen the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit is that which proceed out of the Father (God).
In Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Before the creation of the earth, the Holy Spirit has ever been in existence, moving on the face of the water. And till date, the Holy Spirit of God still exist! And neither did He changed His identity. And He’s always in need to touch our lives if we grant him access to our daily activities. No wonder a chapter in the Bible says, And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit. So, in this article, we’ll focus on 8 things the Holy Spirit will do for you as a Christian.
1). The Holy Spirit will comfort you in trials and tribulations
The Holy Spirit of God will comfort you in the time of tribulation and tries. Looking at the meaning of “Comfort” it defines as: A Conditions in which somebody feels physically relax. That is what the Holy Spirit does to Christians. He makes you impregnable by circumstance that looks like your world is coming to an end.
In John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commandments. “And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another comforter, to be with you forever,”
Jesus Christ speaking about the Holy Spirit described it as another comforter. Though as another comforter, which in Greek words translate “KASKOL” or “Paraqleta”. Though Jesus was leaving, he was not actually leaving them alone. Though he would no longer be physically present with them, he would be spiritually present, through the Comforter.
In other words having the Holy Spirit is absolutely like having Jesus Christ with you in person. And the Holy Spirit does for those who follow Jesus what Jesus did for his disciples when he was physically present i.e. teaches them, guides them, admonishes them, comforts them. That’s why it is called ANOTHER comforter.
2). The Holy Spirit Counsel you Daily
Have you ever been in a situation you need the right counsel, trying to make a choice between two rigorous decision or decide on what to do without deep insight of what lies ahead?
Looking at the book of the Bible of in John 14:16-18 says, “The Spirit of truth, whom the world can’t receive; for it doesn’t see him, neither knows him. You know him, for he lives with you, and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans. I will come to you.”
The Holy Spirit of God will never leave you as orphan without guide and direction! Always in the best position to counsel you, if you’ll listen to is words. The Holy Spirit is the best counselor you would want to have. Because from the above scripture it an indication God will never leave you alone in time of troubles. What He does is to send the Holy Spirit to Counsel us in truth the world cannot accept.

3). The Holy Spirit Brings God Presence to you
“When the Holy Spirit comes into your life and you allow Him take charge of your life, He’ll bring in the anointing. The anointing of God’s Spirit will come upon everything you do.”
Mark 10:27, And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. That is what the Holy Spirit does. It makes the impossible, turn possible! Because of the anointing that comes with His presence has the ability to cause miracles.
4). The Holy Spirit help improve your negative attitude to positive
Galatians 5:22- “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”
When you have the Holy Spirit, all negative attitude is being replace by is strength. Where your life is full of reproach, becomes a life of impact. Where hatred is manifested in your life is easily replace with love. Where you lack peace of mind, joy is becoming unmeasurable.
5). The Holy Spirit Will Teach You All Things
John 14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you.
Sometimes most people strive hard in life to understand simple things, they read and find it hard to grab knowledge. They read but still fails because they are forgetful. You might have encounter students in school who read but still lacks knowledge and sound mind. What such people need is the Holy Spirit to bring all things to their understanding to quit the failing lifestyle.
Colossians 1:26-27 tells us: “the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints.”
The Holy Spirit of God is the master teacher. He will teach you all things and even bring to your mind supernatural and sanctified thoughts, mastery of hidden truths. In the scripture of James 1:5, “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” I.e. if you the Holy Spirit to teach you, he will! Because that is the purpose of God to His children to teach them hidden things.
6). The Holy Spirit Help Us In Weakness
The Holy Spirit helps our weakness when it looks beyond our ability to overcome.
Have you been in a situation trying to quit an addiction? You have severally tried will all medical terms but it still didn’t make a change. You feel like giving up, and you are somehow confuse if it you are destined to live the rest of your life in pain. But that is emphatically not true. What you need is the Holy Spirit to help you overcome any addiction of ( pornography, drugs, prostitution, stealing, fraudulent, fear) or anything that bring shame to your personality.
In the same way, the Spirit also helps our weaknesses, for we don’t know how to pray as we ought. But the Spirit himself makes intercession for us with groanings which can’t be uttered Romans 8:26. Romans tells us the Holy Spirit will help us in our weakness (Sins), in order to do the things that please God and changes us into a person that is more like Christ.
7). The Holy Spirit helps you feel the glory of the Lord
John 7:37- “On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”
It’s my opinion that Jesus was doing two things here: 1. fulfilling an Old Testament prophecy (Jeremiah 2:13) and 2. making a prophecy about the Holy Spirit. Pretty awesome.
8. The Holy Spirit gives us power
Acts 1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
In conclusion, I so much believe every true Christians need the Holy Spirit to live daily to grow and overcome temptation in life.
