Without the help of God, your struggle continues. Isaiah 50:7. We cannot attain anything tangible without his help. Rom 9:16. So God has offered to help us by himself (The Holy Ghost) John 14:16
Keys to Cooperating with the Holy Ghost
1. Recognize Him: Recognition is the foundation for all good relationship. You can’t relate well with whom you don’t recognize. The Holy Ghost requires you to know him if you must enjoy his ministry. John 14:15-16. However, you cannot recognize or relate with the Holy Ghost, if you dwell in the flesh and you don’t step into the Spirit . John 4:24, Rev 1:10
2. Communicate with him: Communication is the ingredients of any relationship. The Holy Ghost is a speaking Spirit. He is not dumb. 1Tim 4:1, when you speak to Him, do well to listen to hear him speak back to you. Get feedback from him.
How to Communicate with the Holyghost?
a. Talk with him first in the morning: This is value and priority. Matt 6:33, Ps. 66:1, Mark 1:35. Talk with him first thing in the morning and throughout the entire day, as a friend would.
Always ask his opinion on any issues.
b. Also, always create time for worship: worship activates your spirit
c. Pray in tongues regularly: 1cor.14:2
3. Walking in obedience: This is the number one requirement from God to walk with the Holy Ghost. Rom. 8:14. It’s not in man to guide himself. The Holy Spirit is given to you to guide you into all truths, howbeit, his guidance would demand your obedience and willingness to yield completely to Him.
4. Be filled with the Spirit: Many have relegated the Holy Spirit to the background, that is why his impact is not felt. Eph 5:18. Your reaction to the situations of life would be a reflection of what you are filled with. The room you give to the Holy Spirit, is the room he will occupy. 2Tim. 1:6-7, Acts 13:52, Rom. 14:17
The Apostles were able to preach the word with boldness after they were filled with the Holy Ghost – Acts 4:31. Also in Acts 13:8-11, The Spirit of God expressed his power via the Paul the Apostle
How to be filled with the Spirit? Acts 5:18-19
a. Speaking to yourself. Eph 5:19
b. Singing and making melody in your heart. Eph 5:19
c. Giving thanks Eph. 5:20
d. Honor each other: Eph 5
