The Spirit Who Surprises

Artwork for Flying Closer to the Flame

Most of us seldom give much thought to the Holy Spirit’s behind-the-scenes ministries. We open our Bibles to read and study God’s truth and rarely think of how He illumines our minds with an understanding of spiritual things. We pray, yet hardly ever consider the vital role He plays in that discipline. We get insightful and helpful thoughts regarding particular matters, especially how to deal with knotty problems, without realizing that such thoughts are revealed to us by the One who has been sent among us (and within us) to be of assistance in just such cases. As we shall be reminded, all these remarkable and wonderful ministries of the Holy Spirit were predicted by our Saviour shortly before He went to the cross. How blessed we are to experience the fulfilment of His predictions!
