The Spirit Who is from God: #10

Not only is the Holy Spirit here to comfort us but also to help us appreciate and use (for good) all of the gifts our Father bestows on us. In this way we are truly blessed. The song today requests that the Holy Spirit make our lives what they ought to be and use us so that others might see God’s presence in our lives.

Scripture:

1Corinthians 2:12  Now we have not received the spirit [that belongs to] the world, but the Spirit Who is from God,  that we might realize and comprehend and appreciate the gifts bestowed on us by God.

1Corinthians 12:7-9, 11  7.But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for good and profit. 8.To one is given in and through the Spirit a message of wisdom, and to another a word of knowledge and understanding according to the same Spirit; 9. To another faith by the same Spirit, to another the extraordinary powers of healing by the one Spirit;…11. All these [gifts, achievements, abilities] are inspired and brought to pass by one and the same Spirit, Who apportions to each person individually as He chooses.

Song:  “Holy Spirit Flow Through Me” – Written by Walt Mills, 1973

Holy Spirit, flow through me, Holy Spirit, flow through me,                                                    And make my life what it ought to be; Holy Spirit, flow through me.

Holy Spirit, rest on me, Holy Spirit, rest on me,                                                                            And use me, Lord to win the lost to Thee; Holy Spirit, rest on me.

Holy Spirit, flow out from me, Holy Spirit, flow out from me,                                            That others, Lord may see You in me; Holy Spirit, flow out from me.                                   Holy Spirit, flow out from me.

About Bonita B. Evans

Since I was young I have felt God's presence in my life. I have been singing Christian music since I was a small child. Reading and studying the Bible have become more and more important in my life. In 2008, songs started coming into my head when reading, driving and also sleeping, so I decided to write them down and share them. For Christmas 2008, I recorded a ten song CD for my family and friends. For Advent 2009, I shared the first version of "A Flame in My Heart" with my church, family and friends. In 2011, I created and shared in this blog "40 Songs for 40 Days" for Lent. For Advent 2011 and 2012 I posted revised versions of "A Flame in My Heart". For Lent 2013 I reposted "40 Songs for 40 Days". I am not sure why this has all happened but I consider it to be a gift from God.
