We were in the midst of a major exam, a physics course for that matter. It was in my year two on campus. I had forgotten a formula without which I could not proceed with the question. I would miss the remaining questions too and may eventually fail the course, unless I do something fast. Cheating was not an option but the Holy Spirit was my advantage. Despite the tension in the hall, I took a break to pray in the Holy Spirit, the answer was supplied. I passed the course with an excellent grade!

Friend, the greatest advantage you ever have in this world is not your certificate, your money, your location or your status, it is the Holy Spirit. No wonder Jesus said, “…It is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper won’t come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you” (John 16:7). You have got an advantage! Oh, how I wish you can grasp the length, breadth, height and depth of the operations of the Holy Spirit today and know how to deploy His power into every area of your life! This will be the end of all your struggles.

You would succeed better in your career and business. Your headache about your children and family would be over. You would not allow small stuff in your life to cause you pain. You would turn them over to Him. Why would you live an ordinary life when you have got an extraordinary person on your inside (Psalms 82:5-7)? Why would you be disadvantaged when you have an advantage in the Holy Spirit?

As you step into today, I charge you to bring back the ministry of the Holy Spirit into your life again. He is not in your for decoration or fun. He is beyond speaking in tongues. He is a person, an advantage. Someone you can and should bring into your life practically. Even the minutest details of your life are worth His involvement. Learn to listen to Him. Don’t take decisions without consulting Him. Take to His leading and instructions (John 2:5).

Don’t do business with your sense, do it with the Spirit. Don’t struggle the same way others are struggling, tap into supernatural intelligence by the Holy Spirit. Live a PEP life. Live a prophetic life; know things beyond the physical and before they happen. Live an effective life; let the Holy Spirit show you where to deploy your energy and resources. Live a productive life; achieve unusual results via His help. Take advantage of your advantage in the Holy Spirit and become all that God has ordained you to become. Amen!
