The Holy Spirit lives inside of us

The Holy Spirit, who lives in us, is our guarantee of a greater glory that is to come .The Spirit is the firstfruits of that glory that is to be revealed in us. Our current state is only a foretaste of what lies ahead for us; we yearn to be clothed and to reside in our heavenly dwelling and to be at home with God

Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.
— Romans 8:23

Dear Lord, you have blessed us with so many wonderful blessings. We thank you for each and every one of them. At the same time, we do long to be brought into your presence in glory as your child. The pain and heartache of the world, the fragility of our body, and our frustration with our own vulnerability to sin keep us longing for the day that your Son returns in glory. Until that day, help us as I try to be your holy child. In Jesus' name, Amen.
