Q:  Pastor Denise, what do I need to do if I feel spiritually empty inside?

A:  What’s interesting about your question is that you asked, “…what should I do if I feel?” You will feel many things throughout your life, but I want to tell you something special about the Holy Spirit. When He came into your life, He came to stay. He came with His power and love, and even planted His fruits of the Spirit inside you — your joy, peace, petitions, and long-suffering — those are in your spirit! But your flesh, your mind, your emotions, and your will aren’t saved yet. Your spirit is but not your mind, emotions, will, or body. Therefore you’re going to feel things, and you might even feel emptiness. But if you’re born again, the Holy Spirit lives inside you! And you can use your spirit language to pray out mysteries through His power! Jude 1:20 and 21 says, “But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” When you pray in tongues, you’re praying in the Holy Ghost, building up your faith, and keeping yourself in the love of God. That’s how you deal with emptiness!
