The bible says that those who sow with tears shall reap in joy (Ps. 126:5), but the fact that we can be in deep distress, and therefore be crying in our despair, does not change the law of sowing and reaping. It’s all about whether we sow God’s solution or not. Even in a state of despair we need to sow the Word of God. Those who sow the Word of God, even when it is done in tears, will harvest a good harvest. But those who just weep will not harvest. At least, they will not reap the solution they need.

The Bible says that we will reap what we sow. When you find yourself in a difficult situation, you need to sow the change that you need. You need to speak out the promises from the Word of God regarding your situation. If you choose to speak out how impossible your situation is, and that there will never be a solution to it, it is sowing bad seeds, and you don’t want to have the harvest from it! The problems are difficult enough without you sowing and reaping even bigger problems. What you need to do is to choose not to talk about how bad it is, but to speak the solution instead.

Note that ALL who had gathered in the upper room on the day of Pentecost were filled by the Holy Spirit. And then we read in Acts 4:31 that ALL were being filled at the prayer gathering, in order to get boldness to preach. We can be assured that at least some of those who attended the meeting on the day of Pentecost also attended the later gathering. If that was the case, it means they were being filled again! To be filled with the Holy Spirit, then, is not a one-time event. The Holy Spirit wants to fill us over and over again.

The Holy Spirit leads us to where He wants us to go, but it may not necessarily be to “green pastures”. He can also lead us into the “desert”. He did so with Jesus (Matt. 4:1). Are you ready to obey the Holy Spirit even if He leads you where you don’t want to go? It saddens the Holy Spirit if we do not do as He says. He has come as our Helper, and He has the best for us. When we stand against Him, and choose our own ways, it makes Him sad.

The wind blows where it wants. Have you tried to tell the wind in what direction to blow? Of course not! It is the same way with the Holy Spirit. We cannot tell Him what He should do. Our part is to listen to Him and do as He says.

The Holy Spirit has come as our Helper. He came on the day of Pentecost, and he came into your life when you invited Jesus into your heart. The Holy Spirit will help you to get to know Jesus more and more. Think about Paul who was a theological scholar, who visited heaven, who received the revelation about the church and who founded dozens of churches. At the end of his life, he was willing to throw all his knowledge in the garbage just to get to know Jesus better. The Holy Spirit will help you too to get to know Jesus better.

A church that listens to the Holy Spirit, and does as He says, will last and develop in the right way, while churches that do not obey the Holy Spirit will sooner or later perish. A division in the body of Christ will become more and more visible. The dividing line is, whether to listen and obey the Holy Spirit, or not to.

During our walk in life, we usually carry with us a lot of thoughts and opinions. We can carry many such thoughts in our ‘backpack’, and what’s interesting is that we actually may have completely contradictory thoughts and opinions there. Let’s look at one example; the situation when someone has done you wrong. You may have the thought “I detest that man” and the thought “I am called to bless him” in the same backpack. What determines how you will act? The answer is, the thought that is at the top of the backpack, i.e. the thought that has the highest priority, will control how you act. It’s you who decides what priority the various thoughts will have.

When Jesus tells us to love our enemies, He does not mean that we should feel for them in a special way. He says that we should share God’s love for them, and that love we have within us (Rom. 5:5). It is not about feelings, but about our willingness to give the love that we already have!

Paul and his team was mightily used by God, and yet it happened that they were wrong  (Acts 16:7). But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, was there to help them understand when they were wrong. We need to take the Holy Spirit’s warning signs seriously.
