God is no respecter of persons. When He gives out benefits to His children they are available to all of His children. Under the Law, God’s Spirit was an exclusive asset for a few. In Israel, there were select people who had access to God’s Spirit. Notables like Samson, David, Elijah and Elisha are a couple of examples of those who had access to God’s Spirit.
In the New Covenant, God says that a time is coming when His Spirit will be offered to everyone: Men, women, slaves, and free will receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
God knew that if His people were to live up to the standard that He had set, we would need His Spirit living within. If you are trying to live for God without His Spirit, then you are missing the joy of being Spirit filled and Spirit led. God wants to help you live for Him and He wants you to know how exciting your life can be when you are directed daily by His Spirit.
Ask today for God to fill you with His Spirit and He will.
