The one who sent Me is with Me, He has not left Me alone, for I always do what pleases Him.
The Father was always with Him. He was always a blanket of comfort and an anointing of power. Jesus never felt alone.
Why have you forsaken Me?
Jesus felt the presence of God at all times. He cultivated His life to always know that the Father was with Him. On the cross was the only time that He could not feel the presence of God. Jesus only spoke what the Father told Him to speak. He only did what He saw His Father doing. He relied on the presence of God. He never felt alone. He constantly was in fellowship with His Father. The witness and presence of His Father gave Him boldness.
Jesus told us that the Spirit of God would be with us after He left. He would send the holy Spirit. That we too would have that blanket of comfort and that anointing of power. To feel the presence of God when walking through your day. When fear comes against you. When you face difficult times and situations, you too can rely on the presence of the Father. The holy Spirit’s presence can be with you all day if you develop a sensitivity to His presence by abiding in Him.
Jesus told us that He would be with us! How? By the holy Spirit that He would send in His name. The same Spirit that resided upon Him would reside upon us.
2 Corinthians 13:14
The fellowship of the holy Spirit be with you all.
1 John 4:13
We know that we live in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.
1 John 1:3
We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.
The fellowship with Jesus through the presence of the holy Spirit is not just for church services but all the time. He wants us to abide in Him continually.
The Father and Jesus via the holy Spirit want to make their home with us. We are the Temple of the holy Spirit. He wants constant connection with us. You never have to feel alone when you can call upon Him!!! That is something to shout for joy about.
So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
Paul called it walking in the Spirit. When you walk in the Spirit, you walk in the Kingdom of God. You won’t fulfill the lust of the flesh. The lust of the flesh wars against the Spirit.
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “ Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
The Spirit testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. The holy Spirit desires to reveal Jesus to you. He desires to comfort you. He desires to teach you all things. He desires to be with you everywhere you go. He is not waiting for you to be perfect or to overcome the flesh. He wants you to walk in Him then you won’t fulfill the lusts of the flesh.
