Do you have the remarkable gift of the Holy Spirit? Our community was devastated when a local young girl committed suicide, and according to those who knew her, they had no idea she was contemplating taking her own life. I had met her once and never picked up on her deep despondency. Her death was a convicting reminder of how much I needed to stay tuned into God’s Spirit, because “he knows the secrets of the heart.” (Psalms‬ ‭44:21‬)

If I had been closer to God, I could have sensed that her heart was crushed and then, engaged the Spirit to pray for her effectively—even without knowing her particular circumstances. What?

Yes—God’s Spirit makes this phenomena possible.

The Bible says: “In the same way the Spirit [comes to us and] helps us in our weakness. We do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit Himself [knows our need and at the right time] intercedes on our behalf with sighs and groanings too deep for words. And He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because the Spirit intercedes [before God] on behalf of God’s people in accordance with God’s will.” (Romans‬ ‭8:26-27‬)

The Holy Sprit is a remarkable gift from Jesus—for all of us.

Jesus said, “ 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.” (John‬ ‭14:16-17‬‬)

If we want to “see” and “know” the Spirit, we must forsake anything that separates us from Him. How? In the verse right before Jesus made His promise to send us the Spirit, He said, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” (John‬ ‭14:15‬) God’s Spirit is “Holy,” and to be close to Him, we cannot engage in anything unholy.

Do you want to be able to sense what is in the heart of those around you, so that you can engage God’s Spirit to help them? Love God more than you love anything else. You will possess His supernatural sense and engage this remarkable gift. It could be the difference between life and death for a broken heart.

Our heart is priceless territory; and God designed it to be inhabited by His Holy Spirit.
