This entry is part 2 of 5 in the series 5 Keys to Hover like the Holy Spirit Series
What do you hover over? What are you thinking about or stressing about or dreaming about?

Have you ever seen a wind move land? Picture a wind blowing steadily on a pile of dirt. Slowly, surely, the earth moves!  Wind can transform any setting.

Yet wind is invisible to the eye. Formed by changing heat patterns in the earth’s atmosphere, wind is unpredictable and powerful, a change agent in any setting.

The wind can cool the hottest face and warm the coldest child. Wind can shift the sands of the desert and ice over a highway in seconds.

Holy Spirit is described as the Wind, or the Breath throughout the Scriptures.

Our Lord Jesus, when ministering to the seeker, Nicodemus, told him plainly, The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit. John 3:8

The Spirit is as the Wind!  Therefore, we who are born of the spirit through Christ Jesus, are as the Wind!

I want to share with you how you can effectively hover like the Wind of God, and operate as a Force in the Kingdom of God. Beloved, that is your destiny!

(Over the next few weeks, we will release this teaching weekly. Friends, would you take time to read this devotional? It will be of great encouragement to you and move you to new heights in your walk with God.)

Part One: Know Your Beginning

Genesis 1:1-3 describes the beginning of God’s creation:

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 

Genesis is the book of all beginnings. You must start your journey of understanding the Spirit from here, as it is a Book of Life, of all beginnings of life.

Visually, you might see that, in the beginning, the earth was formless. Yet the Spirit hovered.

Your world can be without form. Your marriage can be without form.  You can have a life that is void, just as the earth was void and darkness covered the earth. In the chaos, the Holy Spirit hovered over this waters until the Voice of God spoke.

The word in Hebrew for the Spirit in Genesis is ruach, for wind or breath. The breath of God hovered over the mess and waited.

The spirit was hovering. Though we want immediate breakthrough, God had no problem whatsoever to hover over something that was absolutely senseless.

Consider this: What may happen if we can hover in faith over something long enough? We must function like the spirit.

When your situation looks dark, when you are the least, when the marriage is rough, you are still made in the image and likeness of God.  The moment you got saved, things changed. Remember who you are! No matter is what is happening in your life, it is about to get clear as the Lord hovers over you!

Because we are made in the image and likeness of God, we should have results.

Are you hovering over your chaos with fear or with faith?  With prayer or with worry?

Will you do the hard work of hovering UNTIL the Father speaks?

Whatever the Spirit of God hovers over, God the Father is forced to speak over. Whenever you stand in the gap without budging, whatever you hover over, God has to send His Word over it.  That means, if your marriage is void, if your finances are troubled, if your children in pain, if there is confusion or lack of clarity, you who are born of the spirit, MUST stand in the gap and refuse to budge, until God speaks light over this present chaos.

God searches for a person who is patient and long-suffering like the Spirit, who will stand their ground.

Don’t quit. Don’t give up too soon. Whether you can hear it or not, the Voice of God is speaking over you. God our Father will speak!

Our Jesus took a group of messed up believers and hovered over the group for 3 years. Like our King, consistency is critical to bringing order to chaos.

After the resurrection, Jesus hovered over his believers another 40 days. He told them “Just Wait. Wait for the Holy Spirit. Wait.”

After Pentecost, the disciples asked for more of God, only a few days later. Beloved, we must stay dependant.

Stay co-dependant on God. Need Him for everything. Independence is the only way the enemy will bring you down. You were not made to be alone. We were made to be consistently under the presence of God.

Thousands of years ago, the spirit of God hovered over darkness, and with the revelation, order, structure, clarity, in fact, everything good came. To hover as the Holy Spirit hovers, one KEY is that you Know your beginnings! God started everything!

Hover by the Spirit over the chaos!

Be consistent with love, with honour and watch order come to every area of your life!
