God wants us to live a balanced life

It is a daily, personal relationship with God that brings us balance. The Holy Spirit points out our imbalance. He convicts, teaches, and guides us to recognize our personal needs and the solution to our problems. Listening and responding to the Holy Spirit brings us true peace and happiness.

There are tremendous advantages in understanding that there are three members of the Godhead and also in realizing the power they have to offer us. They know the end from the beginning. They can guide us and prepare us for the things that will be coming our way.

They know the answers to all our questions no matter how complicated. Jesus can be present with us through the Holy Spirit no matter how difficult life gets. Even if we are in the middle of the wilderness where no one is around to help us, God is there. He can speak to our minds. He can even impress our hearts to do good if we allow Him to. Consider these promises:

"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you" (Isaiah 43:2).

"Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, '
This is the way, walk in it,' Whenever you turn to
the right hand, Or whenever you turn to the left" (Isaiah 30:21).

  • The Holy Spirit is all-wise and all-present—able to be everywhere at once

  • God is all-powerful and can protect us.
