The Administrator of the New Covenant

Success is something everyone wants, but few people know how to find. Most people rely on their self-efforts to get ahead, with mixed results. Thankfully, believers have a much greater source of help. To be truly successful in life, we can live according to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

The new covenant is all about God’s grace; the Holy Spirit administers this new covenant. God sent the Holy Spirit, our helper and unseen partner, to teach us all things and remind us of what God has taught. After His resurrection, Jesus told the believers not to leave Jerusalem until the arrival of the Holy Spirit, whom the Father had promised. Where others follow their own ideas but fail, waiting for direction from the Spirit enables us to succeed in everything God wants us to do.

He’s the one who causes things to happen in our lives that we can’t take credit for. These supernatural manifestations force us to admit that it’s all because of His intervention. When good things that we don’t deserve show up, we confess that it’s the Lord’s doing, and it’s marvelous in our eyes.

The Holy Spirit isn’t just a religious concept. He’s a real person, given as a gift from God to minister to us and cement our relationship with Him. Every good and perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no shadow of turning. It’s the Spirit who opens doors for us that were firmly closed before, tells us things we didn’t know, and brings clarity and understanding to situations that were previously confusing to us.

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, Himself. Learning to trust in Him instead of in our own works frees us from any lingering mindset from the Law of Moses. If we’re led by the Spirit we aren’t under the law. With Him at the helm, we can’t go wrong.

Prayer:

God, You sent us the Holy Spirit to give us, Your children, the advantage in life that others don’t have. We’re guaranteed to succeed when we depend on Him. Thank You for this gift. In Jesus’ name, amen.
