Olive trees are there to pour out golden oil, Spirit of God. God anoints you with His Spirit for the assignment He has called you to do Zerubbabel went back to work after Zechariah and Haggai acted as olive trees in his life. You need olive trees, people who God brings into your life to support you, for a lifetime. Never ever reach a place where you think that the olive trees are no longer relevant in your life.

God is in charge and wants to lead you. You cannot move in the supernatural and miraculous, if you do not give the Holy Spirit His rightful place. God teaches you what is best for you; meaning you do not know what is best for you. Do not only obey God when it is convenient to you. Do not call Jesus, Lord, if you are not willing to follow His Lordship over your life. For God to effectively lead you, you must be dead to self.

Your hunger and thirst for God will determine how much you receive from Him. The state of your heart determines what you receive from God. What made Daniel and Moses outstanding is the Spirit of God upon them. Never try to do anything without depending on the Holy Spirit.
You should never ever get familiar with the Holy Spirit or God. No one knows what to pray for because we only know how to pray in the natural dimension. Only the Holy Spirit can reveal how to pray according to the supernatural dimension. There is a higher level of prayer that doesn't depend on what you are experiencing nor how you are feeling; whereby you flow in prayer according to how the Holy Spirit prays through you.

Let the river flow. For the holy spirit to flow we have to create a favorable atmosphere. The river only flows when there are no obstacles or barriers. Barriers to the flow of the holy spirit: 1) Attitude, 2) Ignorance (1 Corinthians 1:12), 3) Fear of the manifestation and 4) Despise -
too much rationality and spiritual background. For the holy spirit to manifest we have to create a conducive atmosphere, through: 1) Obedience, 2) Faith, 3) Prayer and 4) Unity.
Let the river flow calls for the manifestation of the holy spirit. Holy spirit will manifest in two ways: In us (Galatians 5:22) and Through us (1 Corinthians 12:1). When the holy spirit manifests in us our character is transformed to be Christ-like and through us
through spiritual gifts to bless others. The holy spirit can manifest in different ways, in each one of us, for the common good and for God to be glorified. Hence we have to aspire for the manifestation of the holy spirit.

Faith is important because we live by faith and not by sight. Faith is spiritual and the word of God is the source of faith. Faith is the only thing that produces miracles, new things. Faith is the only voice that God likes to hear and only language he respects. Faith is activated by your voice, it is not silent. Lastly faith is dependent on the word of God thus you have to saturate your brain with the word of God.
The work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of Christians:
1.He enables us to be in right standing with God and to be in step with Him (in harmony with Him).2. He enables us to come to the true knowledge of God.3. He enables us to live victorious lives (He strengthens us). 4. He enables us to live out our identity effectively and have positive influence in society.God declares us righteous when we get born again. The Holy Spirit recreates/renews our inner man and gives us a new identity. He continues to intervene so that we may live this new life/identity indeed. He helps us to resist/overcome temptation. He helps us to make a distinction between right and wrong. If we obey Him, by His power we are able to be a positive influence in society (being true witnesses for Christ).
When we come into Christ, God fills us with His spirit, the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit sanctifies us and guides us in the path of righteousness. Before we accepted Christ, we were under the influence of the world, but through salvation the Spirit of God takes over ( Gal 5:19 ). The Holy Spirit helps us to conquer the works of the flesh ( Gal 5 : 22) , the Holy Spirit strengthens us and it is through the Holy Spirit that we become the light in the world.
