Who Is Your Internal Consultant?

Holy Spirit and you, Victor Uyanwanne

Consultants possess expertise in their given fields. They are often willing to help out in solving other peoples’ problem if they are engaged for that purpose, usually at a fee. Consultants can help you or your business:

  • Clarify ‘issues’ through research or data analysis;
  • Improve operational efficiencies;
  • Solve specific business problems;
  • Make informed business decisions;
  • Meet other specific needs you may have as their client.

As good as they may be, no consultant is all-knowing and all-powerful; they are often limited by the level of their knowledge, trainings and experiences in life. But the Holy Spirit does not suffer from any limitations. His wisdom is unfathomable and His power is limitless.

The Holy Spirit has been given to you by God as your ever-available Internal Resource. That means you can have Him as your personal Consultant to help you clarify issues, make better decisions, solve problems and improve your overall personal efficiency and effectiveness in life.

What is your relationship with the Holy Spirit like? Do you see Him as your biggest Partner in progress? Don’t you think your relationship with Him can be better than it is right now?

Several years ago as a new believer in Christ Jesus, I read Dr. David Yonggi Cho’s Holy Spirit My Senior Partner. In that book, Dr. Cho shared how he had been walking in close relationship (or partnership as he put it) with the Holy Spirit in his ministry and life.

He talked about the need to depend on the leading of the Holy Spirit for best results in our lives and circumstances. For instance, as a young preacher then, he said he would never stand before the congregation to preach to them except he had received a specific message from the Holy Spirit to share with the people.

That way, he was able to preach timely messages that met the specific needs of someone in his audience. It is not surprising then that Dr. Cho refers to the Holy Spirit as his senior Partner.

Just like Cho, all believers in Christ can have a meaningful partnership with the Holy Spirit at their individual levels. The good news is that He is already a willing and competent Partner, just waiting for us to engage Him. That is why He is in us in the first place!

As I examined the Bible Scriptures over the years, it has become very clear to me what role the Holy Spirit should play in my life as a Christian. He is my:

  • Helper
  • Guide
  • Comforter
  • Enabler
  • Teacher
  • and all….

But whether I am completely depending on Him to be all He should be in my life is a different matter altogether. I know the story is not too different for many believers I have come across over the years in my Christian journey.

Truth be told, all of us ought to be depending on the Holy Spirit for directions and guidance in life more than we are presently doing. We will suffer for it if we don’t. We will be happier if we do. For instance if you want the best results, you can use the leading of the Holy Spirit, in the following areas of your decision making:

  • Who to marry.
  • Where to invest in.
  • What job to accept or reject.
  • Which social organisation to join.
  • and so on and so forth.

There is no limit to the areas of guidance the Holy Spirit can give you. He is there for you in whatever aspect of your life – from the mundane to the spiritual.

Along this line recently, I read the personal testimony of Steve Sawyer wherein he referred to the Holy Spirit as his Internal Consultant. That expression embodies the spirit of this post. So I am borrowing those terms from him for the purpose of this discourse.

In that article, Sawyer explained that the Holy Spirit is His internal consultant because:

  • The Holy Spirit is always with him;
  • The Holy Spirit can answer any question he has with His Truth, because the Holy Spirit IS Truth;
  • The Holy Spirit teaches him every day the best way to respond to anyone in any environment or context.

It is not hard to see that all the above points are in line with what the Bible tells us the Holy Spirit will do in our lives. He is the Spirit of Truth and He guides us into all truth. He is in us as the voice that tells us what to do if we will listen to Him.

In this complex world where you have to make important decisions, wouldn’t you want to have accurate guidance and direction in all areas of your life? That is possible if you make the Holy Spirit your Internal Consultant.

What do you say?

    Very well done. Just this morning I learned a friend’s cancer spread. She had surgery last week to remove the issue and her doctor told her he was confident the cancer did not spread. She seemed confident is her doctors confidence. However, she learned yesterday it did spread. All morning I kept saying to myself, no matter how skilled a person is, we can only put our confidence in the Holy Spirit. Thanks for sharing!

      Thank you for you reading and commenting. Does your friend believe in divine healing? I hope she does! There is still hope for her in God, you know.

    Wow. Thanks. I just realised I haven’t ever asked Him what and where I should invest or even what society to join. It’s like He’s there yet not there. Thanks for the reminder

    A very uplifting Message Victor with much Truth, we can clearly see the Godhead or Trinity as They are called today both meaning 3 in One when we Focus on The Holy Spirit, as Confirmed in the Scriptures below and there are more if wanted.

    Jesus tells us He is The Way, The Truth and The Life and that He is the Only Way to God (John 14:6) and without The Holy Spirit we can’t know God’s Love and good will for us, as we see confirmed below..

    1 Corinthians 2:9-16 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of Man, the things which God hath prepared for them that Love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what Man knoweth the things of a Man, save the spirit of Man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no Man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which Man’s wisdom teacheth but which the Holy Ghost teacheth, comparing spiritual things with Spiritual. But the natural Man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are Spiritually discerned. But he that is Spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no Man. For who hath known the Mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? but we have the Mind of Christ.

    Jesus The Living Word tells us He is our only Teacher and also that The Holy Spirit will Teach us what He hears from Him.

    Matthew23:8-10 But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi for One is your Teacher The Christ, and you are all brethren. Do not call anyone on earth your Father for One is your Father, He who is in Heaven. And do not be called Teachers for One is your Teacher, The Christ. NKJV

    John 16:13 -15. Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide you into all Truth for He shall not speak of Himself but whatsoever He shall hear that shall He speak and He will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me for He shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine therefore said I, that He shall take of mine and shall shew it unto you.

    Jesus said only God is good clearly sharing His own Divinity, Jesus was conceived by The Holy Spirit, He has God’s Seed not Adams so He couldn’t Sin and did not Sin, Yes He is Holy and all Goodness and always was but when He bore our Sin on the Cross it Separated Him from God His Father, as all Sin does.

    Matthew 17a And He said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but One, that is God.

    1 John 5: 7 For there are Three that bear record in Heaven, The Father, The Word, and The Holy Ghost and these Three are One.(K.J.V)

    1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to Sin because God’s Seed remains in him; he cannot go on Sinning, because he has been Born of God.

    1 John 5:18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God Sins but He who was Born of God keeps him and the evil one does not touch him. (KJV)

    Hi Victor.

    Like you said, we could all go deeper in our relationship with the Holy Spirit. I love the name you have used to describe Him, “My internal consultant”
    Because the truth of the matter is that without Him I cannot do anything
