In order to build a great partnership with someone, I believe that you must have a relationship with them. This is true in our personal lives as well as our professional lives.
When we are looking for someone to come to our home for certain things that need to be fixed, we will ask trusted friends for a recommendation. Someone they trust and have a relationship with.
Professionally we seek out others to partner with whom we have a relationship with. The Word of God asks, “Can two walk together unless agreed?” Amos 3:3
This holds true in our walk with Christ as well as our walk with each other. There is One who brings us closer to the Lord in both our spiritual walk and our natural walk.
When you partner with Him you will have a relationship with Him which opens up your life to the will of our Father, through the accomplishments of His Son Jesus.
The Him is the Precious Holy Spirit. He makes the relationship work so that you can be partners in this life with Christ then with each other.
I sense that the world is suffering from spiritual poverty. Our spiritual education should include the importance of the Precious Holy Spirit and how important He is to each of us. Do we all know this? The Book of Acts describes Him and the importance His partnership through relationship was with the Apostles. This is still true for us today.
When we have a partnership through relationship with the Precious Holy Spirit, He guides us, comforts us, instructs us, and protects us…..all toward the Father through the His Son Jesus.
John 14:26 (NKJV)
26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
The Holy Spirit is a partner that I would not want to be without. He is strong in me. He covers me, He loves me, He guides me, He walks with me, He shows me how to pray, and He takes my prayers to the Father. He opens up Jesus to me, He is personal to me, and He is relational to me. He is my life line to Jesus and the Father.
We will have many partnerships in our lifetime and many relationships in our lifetime but NONE will be as perfect, precious, protective, encouraging, exciting, loving, fulfilling and HOLY as your relationship with the Precious Holy Spirit. Let us not forget that we serve one God in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. AMEN
Be in glorious relationship this day with our Lord. Welcome the greatest comforter you can ever have by developing your partnership with Him through your relationship with Him. JustAsk and He will show you how.
I remain in His peace and love to serve,
