The Spirit that is within me that leads and guides me into all truth is again personified when I receive Christ as my Lord and Savior. The Spirit that is upon me after I ask for him is how I receive power. How could I believe that he would come upon me if I have not really received first that he dwells within me? This is what I wrestled with for many years. The problem was, I really didn’t believe the way I thought; And and maybe I also didn’t understand the purpose of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer. Bottom line, now that I think about it, I just didn’t believe right.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
—(2 Timothy 2:15)
Studying, studying, and studying; I was studying everything I could get my hands on to try and grow in the knowledge and understanding of God's word. I didn't just study the good stuff, I even looked at that questionable material written in the name of the Lord, but certainly not inspired by God. I did this just to get a feel for everything.
Because God is still giving revelation to men and women in the gospel, there are many anointed audios, videos, and books out there that have helped to shape my understanding of God’s work for my ministry. Still, there has always been something missing. I tried to make myself believe that the something was not having a close mentor, or maybe it was my immaturity in the role as a pastor. Maybe my tenure of just five years in the ministry was to blame. Whatever it was, I knew without a shadow of a doubt that something vital was missing in my walk with God.
