He reveals God’s plans! Thank You Lord!
Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. Luke 25:26-27

He gives us God’s word to speak. Thank You Father!
…for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say Luke 12:12

He gives us great counsel, teach and remind us of Jesus truths. Thank You God But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. John 14:26

He gives us instructions. Thank You God.

Then the church throughout Judea, Galilee and Samaria enjoyed a time of peace. It was strengthened; and encouraged by the Holy Spirit; it grew in numbers, living in the fear of the Lord. Acts 9:31
