The Spirit of God


The Spirit of God is described in many ways in Scripture, but no matter how it is described, it’s always there somewhere…  In Genesis, it’s spoken of this way:

n the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

Genesis 1:1-2

The Spirit of God wasn’t hovering over the waters without a purpose in mind, for the next verse is where God says “Let there be light.”  That light of course is God’s Truth.  Where ever we find the Spirit of God, we find also the Truth of God, and it seems to me that finding the Truth of God is an important thing indeed.

Where is the Spirit of God in our lives?  Is it found in our daily living?  Is it found in our homes, our jobs or in our families? Surely it’s found in our service.

As you go through your day, seek out His Spirit, for when you do, you will also find His Truth, and His purpose.  When His Truth and purpose shines in your daily living, His presence is made known to those around you, and you will make a difference in the lives of others.

    been searching thro some of your work… excellent! went thro and liked and commented too. this post catches my eye quickly because it headlines my Best Friend- The Holy Spirit. It kinda cuts me deep tho just because you keep calling my Best Friend “it” rather than “He”. Other than that, great post…
