Note. There is a divine power constantly being broadcast from Heaven’s throne. It is part of the Father Himself, being the precious Holy Spirit; but unless we desire it, hunger and thirst after it, and ask the Father earnestly to give it to us – our life will be void and empty of this power. We will be like the car with the generator disconnected; there will be no light or strength within us. The Holy Spirit is the power that ignites virtues in the soul. It gives us light and noble aspirations. The Father is more willing to give it to all who ask than an earthly father is willing to give food to his hungry children.
