“Every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm has already been lavished upon us as a love gift from our wonderful heavenly Father, the Father of our Lord Jesus—all because he sees us wrapped into Christ. This is why we celebrate Him with all our hearts!” Ephesians 1:3
The Holy Spirit always, always wants to bring order to the things in our life! When God offered the salvation, it was never meant just for the forgiveness of sins. No! Because He saved us, He cares for every affair in our life, here and now. He wants to be involved. The only way to live victorious life here on earth is to have insight of the things in heaven, and to know that we are enabled to bring them here as they are there. Truly we are blessed with every possible spiritual (given by the Holy Spirit) blessing. Having this in mind we have to come to a point in the relationship with God, where we begin to develop close friendship with Him. So many times many of us make that mistake of seeking the tasks we ought to do, but never change the approach toward God. Out of the closeness with God, the task will reveal itself so naturally. Know this: Unless the experiences we obtained in the Kingdom of God make us more intimate with God, everything will be in vain. Now, wanting to be close with God is a decision not task!
All comes from there-the intimacy with the Holy Spirit. Even the most recited prayer-to be Christlike, will be possible through the closeness with God on earth, the Holy Spirit. The character is built in the midst of processes and storms, but it’s being formed within the close fellowship with the Holy Spirit.
The spiritual gifts are great blessing, but being intimately close with God is irreplaceable, because the Holy Spirit will never lead us through His gifts in us, but through His closeness.
