We don’t choose to come into the world, but we have the power to choose where we’ll spend eternity.

Day 20 of the Fast of Daniel

To have the Spirit of God means to have the same Spirit the Lord Jesus had.

When someone wants to know whether or not he has the Holy Spirit, all he needs to do is take a look in the Mirror of the Gospel, this is, the life of Jesus and His disciples.

For example, do you see in the New Testament, especially after the descent of the Holy Spirit, a servant of God complaining or whining about their situation, personal problems, love life, family, or finances?
I doubt it!

Only those who are eluded or deceived by deceiving spirits constantly lament their poor quality of life.

Receiving the Holy Spirit does not mean immunity from problems.

Jesus warned:

I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But be of good cheer. I have overcome the world. John 16:33

This is, even though they were born of and filled with the Holy Spirit, Jesus and His true disciples had to face enormous problems, but they overcame them day after day.

I don’t see any of them murmuring or complaining to the others about their problems.

Receiving the Holy Spirit gives conditions to overcome the world and not live in a bed of ​​roses.

Whoever has been sealed with the Spirit of God has strength, power, and spiritual vigor to resist temptations, endure when life hits hard, and remain firm until death.

The Spirit of God does not come to give us the gift of tongues, but to enable us to confront hell, the world, enemies of the faith, false brethren, hypocrites, injustices, persecutions and everything else without lamenting, murmuring, complaining or whining… And, still, remain firm until death.
