THE HOLY SPIRIT
THE HOLY SPIRIT

TEXT: LUKE 1:26-37
The Holy Spirit is the action personality of the Trinity. He is the part of the Godhead that moves people, situations and circumstances so as to bring to pass whatever God desires and declares to be done. When the Holy Spirit moves, every impossibility becomes possible. He (the Holy Spirit) is unstoppable, unmovable and unshakeable. In the scripture above, an angel declared that a miracle would happen to Mary. That miracle was that Mary a virgin would conceive and give birth to a son. Such had never happened in the history of mankind. Expectedly, Mary’s response was, “How can this be?” To her that was impossible because she was a virgin and had never known a man. But the Holy Spirit is a specialist in making impossible situations possible. The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will over shadow you and a miracle shall happen. You shall conceive and give birth to a son”.
It happened exactly as it was spoken by the angel. Mary became pregnant. The reason is that the Holy Spirit carries the power of God for creation. From the creation story in Gen. 1:1-3, you will recall that the earth was without from and void. Darkness was everywhere and the Holy Spirit of God moved upon the waters. Moving upon the waters was with creative power and God said, “Let there be…” and there was. All that He called forth came immediately into existence. The whole creation is a product of the works of the Holy Spirit.
Another example can be drawn from the story of Samson in Judges 14:5-6. On his way to accomplish an important task, a young lion confronted him. Samson would have fled for fear of being hurt but the Holy Spirit came mightily upon him. After the Holy Spirit empowered him, with his bare hands, he tore the lion apart.
All through the scripture, the Holy Spirit accomplishes great and unusual assignments in the lives of people. November is the month of the Holy Spirit. It is therefore a month of great miracles. In this month, anything is possible. Allow the Holy Spirit to come upon you and stay perpetually in you on a daily basis. Allow Him to also take over all aspects of your life and you will experience unusual supernatural miracles.
