Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional February 10th – What Makes The Lord Happy?

(The Spirit’s True Desire And Delight)

TO THE BIBLE: Proverbs 8:30-31 RSV
“…I was beside him, like a master workman; and I was daily his delight, rejoicing before him always, rejoicing in his inhabited world and delighting in the sons of men.”

Have you ever thought about what delights the Holy Spirit or what makes Him happy? The answer to that can be found in the opening scripture.

Also, Jesus said, “And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you” (John 14:16-17).

These words corroborate the Spirit’s true desire and delight as revealed in Proverbs 8:31 RSV: “…Delighting in the sons of men.”

It’s the deepest desire of the Spirit of God to dwell in you and have fellowship with you. His desire wasn’t to live in heaven without us but to be with and in us.

This explains one major reason we got filled with the Holy Spirit. He came to live in us because He loves us and desires deep fellowship with us. That’s why Jesus encouraged us about fellowship with the Holy Spirit.

It also brings to mind Paul’s beautiful prayer for the Christians in Corinth: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen” (2 Corinthians 13:14).

At the end of all things, His ultimate desire will be made manifest, because Revelation 21:3 NIV says, “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.”” Hallelujah!

Think about the fact that this awesome infinite personality of the Godhead—the Holy Spirit—lives in you in all His fullness, making you the headquarters of His operations on earth.

You’re His moving house, bearing His grace, glory and righteousness. This has always been His desire. Hallelujah!

If you’d learn to fellowship with the Holy Spirit, He’ll transform your life. He’ll cause the glory of Christ to be seen and expressed through you in ways you never thought possible.

Dear Father, what a blessing it is for your Spirit to live in me in His fullness. I’m His moving house, bearing His grace, glory and righteousness. I take advantage of your glorious presence in me and declare that your glory, wisdom and excellence of divinity are evident in and through me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
