Our Connection, our Hope

Romans 5:5
“And this hope will not lead to
disappointment. For we know
how dearly God loves us, because
he has given us the Holy Spirit to
fill our hearts with his love.

In each step of our lives, we are connected to one person or the other. In defining connection in this context I mean, being linked to people of great influence who can help or assist in one way or the other. Having several connections will mean that you will enjoy more exemptions and favour from people. Also, the type of connection you have sometimes determines the places you can go to; which means that being connected to highly influential people will lead you to places of great influence. And the connections you have will either draw others to you or away from you. The question though is, do these connections give you a hope that you can cling on to for long? Do these connections fill that emptiness or pain you feel within??

Now, a light bulb can only be connected to a source of power before it can function correctly. And this source of power is the hope that the light bulb has to function properly. The same with us all, no matter the connections we have, we will never be as fulfilled or function as we should without the connection of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the power that works within us to function as we should. Your connection with the Holy Spirit restores your Hope in your calling and the assignment ahead. The bible says Christ in us, our hope of glory (Colossians 1:27).

With our connection to the Holy Spirit we are continually reminded of the greater glory ahead of us which far exceeds any other thing or person in this world.

1 Peter 1:3-4
“Blessed be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ, who
according to His abundant mercy
has begotten us again to a living hope
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ
from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible
and undefiled and that does not fade away,
reserved in heaven for you.

When two individuals love each other they spend a lot of time together in order to build a strong connection between them. The same with Our Precious Holy Spirit, we stay connected to Him through consistent personal prayer, worship/praise and fellowship.

Jeremiah 29:12-13
In those days when you pray,
I will listen. If you look for me
wholeheartedly, you will find me

Consistency is the key to developing a strong connection and a strong connection builds a strong hope in Jesus Christ. Remember, it is through your connection that others would also want to be associated with you, so today, I challenge you to stay connected to the Holy Spirit for a renewed hope each day.

…Inspired by the Holy Spirit 😊

    Mmm…….Our connection………. God richly bless you Dear.
    This takes my mind to sharing the ‘GRACE’ at church….“ MAY THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, THE LOVE OF GOD AND THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BE WITH US NOW AND FOREVERMORE”. This is based on scripture, 2 Corithians 13:14. Now we have the love of God, and we are enjoying grace through Christ Jesus but our fellowship with the Holy Spirit is weak. To fellowship is to friendly associate with someone whom you share same or common interests and feelings with. The Holy Spirit is a person and He needs our fellowship. To fellowship with Him is to get to know Him, what He likes and what He dislikes, how He feel and what He would like us to be doing at every point in time. Using the light bulb analogy, we can also notice that there can be a good wiring system to influence the flow of power and the light bulb can be connected to this power source alright but until we press the ‘switch’ we can still live in darkness even though we have a bullb which is already connected to the main power source, but the moment we press the ‘switch’ we see light and the bulb also begins to function. Pressing the SWITCH is fellowshipping with the Spirit, until we connect intimately with Him through prayer by getting to know Him more, He will just be there, and He is so gentile that He will never force us to communicate with Him until we are ready to do so.
    Let’s go to the Kitchen…. Most of us like using the blender, but before we can blend, we get our fruits or vegetables ready, connect the blender to the source of power, press or turn on the switch, and even regulate the speed depending on how fine or smooth we would like our veggies or fruits to be. The same way our efforts and desires to know God and fellowship with His Spirit also counts.
    Our fellowship with the Holy Spirit in prayer is not just finding some special time for Him alone, but constantly staying in tune with Him and paying heed to the still small voice at every moment and at any place.
    May the Lord cause us to desire Him more and to seek and fellowship with Him in our everything in Jesus’ Name….. Amen…!!!
