SIH TOTT ICONRevelation 3:1 KJV

“And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.”




In this devotional, we will continue to look at the seven ministries of the Holy Spirit (Isaiah 11:2), which is described in this passage as the “seven Spirits of God”.  For our devotion this morning, we will be looking at “The Spirit of counsel” and “The Spirit of might”.

What do we learn about the ministries of the Holy Spirit from these titles?   It is from the Holy Spirit that the saint is given divine guidance and instruction (counsel), and the strength and the boldness (might) to follow that His leadership.

The Holy Spirit leads us to do the will of our Heavenly Father.  Without this leadership in our lives, we would be unable to begin to discern the Lord’s will and know the path of life we are to take.  Then, following the Spirit’s guidance, we then find that the He strengthens us to boldly follow the will of the Lord in the face of persecution and sacrifice…

Psalms 18:32 KJV – “It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.”

This is the two-fold ministry that the Spirit performs among all of God’s people.  This is why He is described as “The Spirit of counsel and the Spirit of might”.


Folks, do we appreciate the Holy Spirit’s leadership for our lives?  And, likewise, do we appreciate His enabling grace which allows us to bravely do what we have been called to do?   Following His leadership and seeking His strength are two keys to living a successful Christian life.

May we all remember our frailties and the great need of the Spirit’s daily leadership and strength as we seek to fulfill our life’s callings.



May the Lord bless us as we seek to serve Him, the One that is so clearly revealed to us in the book of   the Revelation of Jesus Christ.


For an in depth look at this section of the Revelation:

    This is a great post, Rob! I’d also like to mention this about the Holy Spirit:

    “In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words;…” (Romans 8:26).

    I am ever thankful for the indwelling of God by way of the Holy Spirit as a “deposit” against the heavenly reward Christians have been promised!

      Amen! Thanks for adding these comments… the Spirit wonderfully intervenes in our lives as we pray…. what a blessing!

      • The True Light! says:

        God made us, Jesus saved us, and the Holy Spirit helps guide us…

        From beginning to end, the Almighty in three persons has seen to our every need!
