Intimacy with the Holy Spirit eBook
This book leads you in meditating on and journaling about several hundred verses that discuss the Holy Spirit. You will grow in intimacy with the indwelling Holy Spirit, and the anointing within you will increase! You will exclaim as the disciples did on the Emmaus Road: “Did not our heart burn within us…while He opened to us the Scriptures?” (Luke 24:32)! In addition to being led to journal through these verses, you will read numerous two-way journal entries from Mark Virkler, as well as a powerful five-page prayer at the conclusion of the book.
How is the "Intimacy With the Holy Spirit" workbook structured?
We begin by answering the questions:
- Why explore the working of the Holy Spirit in our lives?
- Who is the Holy Spirit?
- How do I do two-way journaling?
- What are the steps to meditating on a Scripture verse?
Then we provide you 170 pages of workbook where you meditate on 170 verses about the Holy Spirit.
- The verse is written across the top of the page,
- followed by meditation questions and a place for you to record your response, and then
- a two-way journaling question, and a place for you to record your response.
So for your morning devotions for several weeks or months, you prayerfully meditate through these 170 verses and record what God is speaking to you, all the time moving into a more intimate awareness of the working of the Holy Spirit within your heart and spirit!
People often ask us, "What are good journaling questions?" Well, this book gives you 170 pages of good journaling questions. Enjoy it as you hear the Holy Spirit reveal Himself to you through Scripture!
Part of the concluding prayer summary at the close of Intimacy With the Holy Spirit
“Holy Spirit, I come to You. I choose to walk in obedience and faith, as these are Your requirements for receiving Your abiding presence. You flow freely when I live in love and unity with others and when I seek to build others up. I choose to be diligent to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. I will let people lay hands upon me to receive Your indwelling and anointing. Holy Spirit, I come to You.
“Holy Spirit, come. You drew me unto salvation. You grant me intimacy with God. You make me a temple of God. Holy Spirit, I seek all Your works in my life. Please indwell me, fill me, flow out from me and pour Yourself out upon me. I consciously welcomed You into my heart at the point of my salvation. I was baptized by You at the point of time I yielded my outer faculties from self control to Your control and asked for and sought Your empowering.
“You renew me each and every morning. Your daily filling requires a constant yielding of my heart and soul to You, which I choose to do. I desire for You to flow out through me. Empower me from within. I desire that You be poured out upon me. Through Your various workings, You give me victory over sin as well as victory over sickness, disease and the devil. Truly Your power sets the captives free. Holy Spirit, come.” (Four more pages of this prayer follow in the book.)
Perhaps nothing is more powerful than journaling through Scriptures. Make this book your daily devotional for a period of months. Journal about the Scriptures, letting the Holy Spirit grant fresh revelation and inspiration to your heart. Come alive and burn with the fire of God within.
