You cannot live a faithful Christian life with your own strength. God has not left you alone. He has given you a Helper, the Holy Spirit. You need the help of the Holy Spirit in your Christian journey. Holy Spirit is the third person of the triune Godhead. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He is the Helper given by God to every Christian to progress in their Christian journey. When you accepted Jesus as your personal Savior, the Holy Spirit came within your heart. He dwells within you and guides you with His gentle voice. You need to carefully listen to His voice and obey Him. He will teach you the truth and regulate your everyday life. He will strengthen you in your weaknesses. When you do not know what to pray, the Holy Spirit Himself prays for you. The Holy Spirit will give you the power to exercise your faith in Christ Jesus. Though the Holy Spirit dwells within your heart, a complete submission and attentiveness to His meek voice would lead to an explicit work of God in your lives. The presence of Holy Spirit in your life is known through the fruit of the Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. It is God’s desire for your life to exhibit the fruit of the Spirit. The Holy Spirit also provides special abilities to Christians. They are wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, speaking in tongues, and interpretation of tongues. These are called the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The gifts of the Holy Spirit is given to the believers by the Holy Spirit as He wills.

4. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. (Ephesians 4:30)
Father, I thank you for giving me the Holy Spirit to help me through my onward journey. May Your Spirit fill me and may I be a blessing to the world. May the Holy Spirit rest and abide with me forever and ever. Amen.
