Book Review | Understanding the Holy Spirit Today

Understanding the Holy Spirit today

By Doris Wynbeek Rikkers


I thought I knew the Holy Spirit when I was in my early twenties. I wasn’t like most young adults, I had a Christian media company at age 21, and I was very much into reading and praying half of my days. God and I were tight, and we are still tight, but at age 21 with no worries, it was a very tight relationship.Understanding the Holy Spirit |

That relationship was tested when I hit 26, then 27, then 28, and finally 29. When I turned 29, I finally understood it all. I understood the importance of prayer, meditation, and why we need to remain connected to God’s word day and night. Why? Because there is something called Life, and life brings a lot of pressure.

That’s why I would recommend this book, Understanding The Holy Spirit because we need to know what our spirit is saying at all times. We are so consumed with technology that we forget that we, too, are machines that need rest, nurture, prayer, and the right food and care. God wants us to function at our highest capacity, and we have to make sure that we know when to stop and connect with the Holy Spirit that’s alive within us today.

This reminds me of Wellington from my new book, The Revelation Begins, he didn’t really pursue God after his father’s death, and he never surrounded himself around Christians. He started to do his own thing when God’s calling came knocking. It’s funny when you make a promise to God when you have no worries, but then when life gets tough, you forget about the promise? Well, God doesn’t forget about anything, and the promise you made will manifest with you feeling less worthy or worthy to be in God’s presence. Wellington felt less worthy but soon realized that his calling was going to happen, and that’s why he embraced the Holy Spirit to guide him.

The book ‘Understanding The Holy Spirit today’ is filled with chapters and several parts on how to understand the Holy Spirit in different situations, and how the bible showcased the Holy Spirit working in different people’s lives.

So tell me, do you understand the holy spirit inside you? If so, tell me. How do you know? Is it a nudge or whisper or a joyful abundance? Leave your comments below.

    It’s wild to think that March last year and March this year are totally different in how the Holy Spirit has led me and how I have learned to listen to the Holy Spirit even more than I ever had. I suppose operating from ground zero will do that to you. 😉 And now heading into mid-May, it’s astounding to see how the Holy Spirit has led me even further into what God has for my life and how it takes a simple “yes” from me and action to move forward and do whatever it is that God has for me.

      Amen! I remember November 2017, I had a feeling to take a step back and move back home. However, fast forward six months, I’m glad that I listened to the holy spirit because my life changed for the better 🙂
