He will give you another Helper ...

"If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.

There is a symbiotic relationship between our love for God, desire to keep his commands and the power of His Spirit in our lives. They are inextricably linked together because God does not control us, but leads us, by the Spirit. It is a matter of cooperating with the Lord. When we, from a heart of love, take a step of obedience the Holy Spirit rises up within us empowering us. What sometimes seems to begin naturally takes on the supernatural.

Consider how Jesus called out to Peter to walk on the water. If Peter did not cooperate he would have never experienced the supernatural. It is the same, albeit a bit less over the top, when we respond to the call of God in our lives. We begin with a heart filled with loved for God then begin to take a step of faith as we sense Him leading us. As we walk we experience the power of the Spirit take us to places we have previously not been to.

Where you go I will follow Lord Jesus. Lead me dear Holy Spirit.
