I AM THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE SPIRIT WHOM THE FATHER HAS GIVEN YOU
Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And by
this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.
1 John 3:24
I am the Spirit Whom the Father Has Given You. I am the One that Jesus promised to give you (See John 14:17). There are no good works you can do to receive Me; I am a gift. Just as a gift is given without obligation, so I am given freely to you. All you did was “believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ” (1 John 3:23), and I came into your heart to give you assurance of salvation. Because you have Me living in your life, you can know (have the assurance) that you are a child of God.
Holy Spirit, I gratefully receive You, as I would receive any gift. Thank
You for entering my life. Thank You for assurance of salvation.
I am a gift to all believers. When I was sent on the Day of Pentecost, I appeared as the sound of a mighty rushing wind and as cloven tongues of fire (See Acts 2:1-4). I was manifested with mighty symbols to tell all believers that I will do a mighty work when I enter their hearts. Just as I came upon all believers in the Upper Room, so I enter all who are saved. As a matter of fact, Paul says, “If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His” (Romans 8:9).
Holy Spirit, thank You for indwelling my heart. Thank You for the spirit
of confidence, which is greater than the spirit of anxiety. Thank You for
giving me the assurance of eternal life. Amen.
Reading: 1 John 3:16-4:11
