Hi Banjo71,I've been baptized but life has been miserable in a way that doesn't make sense to me. My pastor told me that upon baptism in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, that I indeed have the Holy Spirit in my life. Now people are asking me if I've received the Holy Spirit or not. I'm confused. But I do want to receive Him, I just don't understand what is taking place and how I do this.
If you ask God to have the Holy Spirit live through you, and you have faith, God will make this happen. It is that simple. Don't listen to any voice that says it won't. This is all you have to do is ask.
It is easy, simple, and I know God wants this for your life. I believe that you are the wonderful person that I see you to be from God for God made you with a beautiful purpose. I know from God that God made you with a beautiful purpose. The life of the Holy Spirit is for every believer that asks.
