Day 3 - Attracting Him to you

"...and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David..." (1 Samuel 16:13)

We've learned that the Holy Spirit is the same temple — God, father and son, who was, is and will always be inside of the heart of those who have been chosen by God for His purposes.

The story of David clearly shows when the Holy Spirit manifests Himself. When the Holy Spirit took hold of David, all his weaknesses became strengths and  power... in that moment the people didn't see a change in his life, his appearance stayed the same, humanly speaking, nothing happened... but inside, David obtained everything from God!

From that moment on, all that David couldn't do before because of his inabilities, he received the conditions to do, because inside of him was now the Spirit of God. And this way, the fruits, his attitudes, began showing what was inside of him. Like David, all the other men and women who make room in their life for the Holy Spirit, were used exclusively and extraordinary.

When one has the Holy Spirit, there is nothing impossible! The confidence inside of you is so strong that the world could be ending before your eyes, yet you strongly believe God is there with you. You can be going through an unexplainable situation, difficulties, but there is an assurance that you will overcome this for God.

Many want the Holy Spirit, but many have not tried to find out about the power in being baptized. There is not a complete surrender from their part, no sacrifice, they may even begin well, but they don't go to the end. Understand this, you need to want this first! There's no point in asking for something that you don't know, have you tried to understand that perhaps that's what is lacking inside of you?

David still being a kid, in front of men was insignificant, but inside of him, there was a big desire to know God, much bigger! This desire attracted God to him.

Do you want to be baptized with the Holy Spirit? So then, learn about Him through His word (the Bible)... the more you read about Him, through His word (the Bible), the more you'll desire Him inside of you, your attitudes will be determined (without emotions) to leave your old life, things that are against God... That's it!!! You will attract the Holy Spirit and say, "Ah, What a Day!" 

"A servant that has the same characteristics as God does not only do His work, but overall, His will."
