How Much of the Holy Spirit Do You Want in Your Life?

The Holy Spirit is for you! He is the most amazing person you can ever meet.

I think having a personal relationship with Him is one of the most incredible adventures we can have in life. When we are walking with the Spirit, He loves to reveal His love to us in new and exciting ways every single day. But not only is the Holy Spirit for you, but the baptism with the Holy Spirit is for you and everyone!

I had such a profound and powerful encounter when I was baptized with the Holy Spirit when I was 18 years old. I have never been the same.

Ever since that day, I have seen thousands of people receive the baptism with the Holy Spirit in numerous ways. Whether it has been at churches praying near the front, in prayer groups, beside me in church vans, at residential treatment foster care facilities, standing outside near the gun ranges or even remotely, I’ve witnessed Jesus baptizing His kids in the Holy Spirit.

Whether I’ve laid hands on people or not, or encouraged people to go home and pray, many report how the Spirit of God filled them up and they spoke in tongues. Acts 2:1-4 shows us the amazing encounter where the Holy Spirit was poured out for the first time. But ever since then, the Spirit is poured out in power for everyone who calls on the name of Jesus (Acts 2:38-39).

The promise is for you and your children. My kids were between the ages of four and six when they received the Spirit baptism. As I’ve heard it said before, “There is no junior Holy Spirit.” Kids receive the same Holy Spirit you and I do when we are baptized with the Holy Spirit.

And the Holy Spirit is given to you and me without measure. That means we can have as much of Him as we want. There is no limit!

How much of the Spirit do you want in your life? I want to be so filled up, I am overflowing everywhere I go. And I have been overflowing since I was baptized with the Holy Spirit.

If you need to receive this precious gift of the baptism with the Spirit, start asking right now. {eoa}
