Famous Holy Spirit Quotes

O Holy Spirit, descend plentifully into my heart. Enlighten the dark corners of this neglected dwelling and scatter there Thy cheerful beams. Saint Augustine

Many people feel so pressured by the expectations of others that it causes them to be frustrated, miserable and confused about what they should do. But there is a way to live a simple, joy filled, peaceful life, and the key is learning how to be led by the Holy Spirit, not the traditions or expectations of man. Joyce Meyer

Never worry alone. When anxiety grabs my mind, it is self perpetuating. Worrisome thoughts reproduce faster than rabbits, so one of the most powerful ways to stop the spiral of worry is simply to disclose my worry to a friend. The simple act of reassurance from another human being becomes a tool of the Spirit to cast out fear because peace and fear are both contagious. John Ortberg

People from different backgrounds may not have natural affinity, but when the Word of God is treated right and the Holy Spirit is allowed to engage, it can bring together things, people, backgrounds, histories, races, colors, and cultures and hold them together in a way that natural affinity may not be able to do. Tony Evans

When God takes out the trash, don’t go digging back through it. Trust Him. Amaka Imani Nkosazana

The presence of the Holy Spirit is the keystone of all our hopes.  John Nelson Darby

To ignore, repress, or dismiss our feelings is to fail to listen to the stirrings of the Spirit within our emotional life. Jesus listened. In John’s Gospel we are told that Jesus was moved with the deepest emotions. The gospel portrait of the beloved Child of Abba is that of a man exquisitely attuned to His emotions and uninhibited in expressing them. The Son of Man did not scorn of reject feelings as fickle and unreliable. They were sensitive antennae to which He listened carefully and through which He perceived the will of His Father for congruent speech and action. Brennan Manning

I must ask the Lord to direct the Holy Spirit within me to drain the life out of sin and in prayer. J. I. Packer

You can only afford to be generous if you actually have some money in the bank to give. In the same way, if your only source of love and meaning is your spouse, then anytime he or she fails you, it will not just cause grief but a psychological cataclysm. If, however, you know something of the work of the Spirit in your life, you have enough love in the bank to be generous to your spouse even when you are not getting much affection or kindness at the moment. Timothy Keller

If the Holy Spirit can take over the subconscious with our consent and cooperation, then we have almighty Power working at the basis of our lives, then we can do anything we ought to do, go anywhere we ought to go, and be anything we ought to be. E. Stanley Jones

Never allow your ego to diminish your ability to listen. Gary Hopkins

I would say it simply No one can give that which he doesn’t personally possess, which means we cannot transmit the Holy Spirit in an effective way, render the Spirit perceptible, if we ourselves aren’t close to the Spirit. Pope Benedict XVI

Will God ever ask you to do something you are not able to do? The answer is yes all the time! It must be that way, for God’s glory and kingdom. If we function according to our ability alone, we get the glory; if we function according to the power of the Spirit within us, God gets the glory. He wants to reveal Himself to a watching world. Henry Blackaby

When you read the Bible, you are reading the Holy Spirit and not history books. When you read history books, you are reading about events, but the Bible is not an event. So, when you are reading the Holy Spirit, you are supposed to be carried along by it. T. B. Joshua

In my experience, self hatred is the dominant malaise crippling Christians and stifling their growth in the Holy Spirit. Brennan Manning

Red Letter Christians believe in the doctrines of the Apostle’s Creed, are convinced that the Scriptures have been inspired by the Holy Spirit, and make having a personal transforming relationship with the resurrected Christ the touchtone of their faith. Tony Campolo

Those in whom the Spirit comes to live are God’s new Temple. They are, individually and corporately, places where heaven and earth meet. N.T. Wright

I discovered that no revival comes if we don’t preach the Word of God under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. If we only have the Great Commission and only the Holy Spirit, we have power without purpose, or purpose without power. It is a package deal, and that is what God honors. Reinhard Bonnke

I used to tell young preachers, in order to preach you’ve got to have the power of God on your life. Now I tell them, in order to tie your shoes you’ve got to have the power of God on your life. Paul Washer

The institution of marriage works better when there’s a spiritual connection. If you’re marrying just for the sake of the woman, then you may lose interest in each other very soon. When we marry in the interest of the Holy Spirit with the intention of serving God and humanity, then it gives a much larger perspective. A. R. Rahman

Holiness, as taught in the Scriptures, is not based upon knowledge on our part. Rather, it is based upon the resurrected Christ in dwelling us and changing us into His likeness. A.W. Tozer

In my experience, take the Holy Spirit out of the equation of your life and it spells boring. Add it into the equation of your life and you never know where you are going to go, what you are going to do, or who you are going to meet. Mark Batterson

Your call will become clear as as your mind is transformed by the reading of Scripture and the internal work of God’s Spirit. The Lord never hides His will from us. In time, as you obey the call first to follow, your destiny will unfold before you. The difficulty will lie in keeping other concerns from diverting your attention. Swindoll Charles R.

I believe I have a calling. Do you know what that calling is? To stand up in a new and hard core, radical way for the Lord. In the process, if I insult a couple of people, if I offend a couple of people, and if I got to shake it up a little bit, as long as it is led by the Holy Spirit, amen. Stephen Baldwin

A good church is a Bible centered church. Nothing is as important as this not a large congregation, a witty pastor, or tangible experiences of the Holy Spirit. Alistair Begg

We are 100 percent responsible for the pursuit of holiness, but at the same time we are 100 percent dependent upon the Holy Spirit to enable us in that pursuit. The pursuit of holiness is not a pull yourself up by your own bootstraps approach to the Christian life. Jerry Bridges

There is no other way to determine the difference between the will of God and the crafts of satan. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. The Holy Spirit of God is the Comforter. Israelmore Ayivor

In our friendships we have to be wise that we choose godly people to be our friends. Somebody might say, well does that mean that you should never have a lost person as your friend? No, I wouldn’t say that. But you can’t have the same intimacy with a lost person that you can with a godly person in whom the Holy Spirit is living. Charles Stanley

The nativity mystery conceived from the Holy Spirit and born from the Virgin Mary, means, that God became human, truly human out of his own grace. The miracle of the existence of Jesus , his climbing down of God is Holy Spirit and Virgin Mary! Here is a human being, the Virgin Mary, and as he comes from God, Jesus comes also from this human being. Born of the Virgin Mary means a human origin for God. Jesus Christ is not only truly God, he is human like every one of us. He is human without limitation. He is not only similar to us, he is like us. Karl Barth

I want you to hear from God. God already spoke to me what I’m going to write out. You’re going to write your checks to Paula White Ministries. If God tells you to give $12.99, do it. Whatever the Holy Spirit speaks to you. If you need to give by credit card, do so. Paula White

The spirit of bondage works by fear for the slave fears the rod but love cries, Abba, Father; it disposes us to go to God, and behave ourselves towards God as children; and it gives us clear evidence of our union to God as His children, and so casts out fear. So that it appears that the witness of the Spirit the apostle speaks of, is far from being any whisper, or immediate suggestion or revelation; but that gracious holy effect of the Spirit of God in the hearts of the saints, the disposition and temper of children, appearing in sweet childlike love to God, which casts out fear or a spirit of a slave. Jonathan Edwards

It’s easy to write for God and about God, because what a thrill to remind the church that the Holy Spirit of God is in you. What a rush! What an amazing blessing! Francis Chan

In Christ, for the first time, we see that in God himself there exists within his inseparable unity the distinction between the Father who gives and the Gift which is given the Son, but only in the unity of the Holy Spirit. Hans Urs von Balthasar

Even in my own church I heard the words, Francis Chan more than I heard the words, Holy Spirit. Francis Chan

If I were to believe in God enough to call him a murderer, then I might also believe enough that he, as a spirit, exists beyond death; and therefore only he could do it righteously. For the physical being kills a man and hatefully sends him away, whereas God, the spiritual being, kills a man and lovingly draws him nigh. Criss Jami

What does God the Father look like? Although I’ve never seen Him, I believe as with the Holy Spirit He looks like Jesus looked on earth. Benny Hinn

To put it simply the Holy Spirit bothers us. Because he moves us, he makes us walk, he pushes the Church to go forward. And we are like Peter at the Transfiguration Ah, how wonderful it is to be here like this, all together! But don’t bother us. We want the Holy Spirit to doze off we want to domesticate the Holy Spirit. And that’s no good. because he is God, he is that wind which comes and goes and you don’t know where. He is the power of God, he is the one who gives us consolation and strength to move forward. But to move forward! And this bothers us. It’s so much nicer to be comfortable. Pope Francis

What does God the Father look like? Although I’ve never seen Him, I believe as with the Holy Spirit He looks like Jesus looked on earth. Benny Hinn

No man ever did, nor ever shall, truly go forth to convert the nations, nor to prophesy in the present state of witnesses against Antichrist, but by the gracious inspiration and instigation of the Holy Spirit of God. Roger Williams

I remind you that there are churches so completely out of the hands of God that if the Holy Spirit withdrew from them, they wouldn’t find it out for many months. A. W. Tozer

If something we think, see, hear, or do distances us from the Holy Ghost, then we should stop thinking, seeing, hearing, or doing that thing. If that which is intended to entertain, for example, alienates us from the Holy Spirit, then certainly that type of entertainment is not for us. David A. Bednar

I once faced a temptation that was so persistent and so overwhelming that I literally believed my whole world would go dark if I refused to give in to it, he said. All I could do was scream to the Holy Spirit to keep me from it. Wesley Hill

We think when God speaks to us, there’s going to be a boom out of Heaven or we’re going to get some chill bumps, but I really believe God’s talking to us all the time. He’s talking to us right in here. I call it our heart, our conscience, but it’s the Holy Spirit talking to us. Joel Osteen

The average man has no central core of moral assurance, no spring within his breast, no inner strength to place him above the need for repeated psychological shots to give him the courage to go on living. He has become a parasite on the world, drawing his life from his environment, unable to live a day apart from the stimulation which society affords him. A.W. Tozer

You may feel overwhelmed by your own poverty and the labors of the day. But if you decide not to wait until you have more strength and more money, and if you pray for the Holy Spirit as you go, you will, when you arrive, know what to do and how to help someone even poorer than you are. Henry B. Eyring

We don’t do the cleaning, the Holy Spirit does. R. Alan Woods

The early Celtic Christians called the Holy Spirit the wild goose. And the reason why is they knew that you cannot tame him. John Eldredge

Every true prayer is a prayer of the Church; by means of that prayer the Church prays, since it is the Holy Spirit living in the Church, Who in every single soul prays in us with unspeakable groanings. Edith Stein

In the Bible, ordination I don’t see that in the Scripture. In the Bible, it’s whether you’re filled with the Holy Spirit, whether you’re anointed by God, whether you’re called by God, whether you’re obedient to Him. I want to be those things, but I don’t see any purpose for me in being ordained. Anne Graham Lotz
