6/25 Spirit-Taught Words

1 Cor 2:13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.

Being taught by the Spirit, what could be better? He is the best teacher you could have. He gives instant insight. He gives revelation untaught and ready for the moment.

You need to engage in the spiritual realm and counter the arguments with spiritual wisdom. He gives it. Be in the spirit and see his wisdom pour from you. This happens through engagement with opposing philosophies. Be forward leaning into the dialogue and love with passion that is divine, where there is no defense.

Learn by the Spirit through each encounter. Find avenues to be in the fight with divine power. Confront everywhere you go, the bondage and deceit of the enemy, to see the captives set free by Holy Spirits power and wisdom.

6/19 Overflow With Hope

Rom 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

A prayer of blessing. Receive it and give it. You will be filled with joy and peace and not only, also hope. As you trust him you will be filled.

Faith in him gives you joy and peace. Everyone is chasing this. You are given it freely as you apply faith to Jesus. And then there is hope.

This hope carries through the valley of the Shadow of Death. Hope that is great through the power of the Holy Spirit is beyond measurable of a gift.

Apply faith and you get it all!

6/15 He is Speaking to You

Rom 10:8 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,”[a] that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim:

The word is near you. It is actually stated more powerfully in the Greek. It is like saying that the word the Lord is speaking to you is near you. These are not just words from the Bible written 1,000s of years ago but the “now” present word of God from his mouth to your ear.

It is in your mouth and in your heart. It is a “now” word from him. This is a “now” close relationship as you continue in his love. This is the Spirit of God working in you and through you. It is alive and working moment by moment as you live in love. This love is in you and flowing through you.

What is he speaking? It is “trust me.” “I love you.” “Love them as I loved you.” “Remember that I am near.” These words and more reside in you to encourage you. They guide you to love and live and wait for the gift of eternal life that he has promise.

He says “I am coming soon!”

6/6 Holy Spirit Intercession

Rom 8:27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

In the book of James it makes it clear that by calling for the Spirits wisdom that you shall receive it. This, with the fact that the Spirit intercedes for you can give you great confidence to pray.

He shows you how to pray. He prays for you and gives you the words to pray. This is God’s Spirit, yes it is a mystery! But trust him as you remain in his Spirit that he is doing all this. Persevere! Deny yourself the privilege of sight and believe.

Pray! Pray in the Spirit and you shall see through eyes of faith. Reject your sight and see. Rejoice in your spiritual eyes. Have fun with this end enjoy the pleasure. Oh, you are so blessed.

6/5 Powerful Helper

Rom 8:26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.

As you struggle in faith and discover the difficulties and experience the pain of life in the Spirit, you have a helper. This helper is the Holy Spirit. He understands your weakness. He isn’t surprised or disappointed in you. He knows you are but flesh and blood with a limited perspective, walking in blindness, but still, still trusting him.

You must depend on him. Don’t rely of feelings. Accept this and thank him even in the distress and the pain. This will strengthen you with hope. Trust him! He is leading the way to something great. He is doing this in and through you.

He is called the helper and he has his eye on you. He will never leave nor forsake you. Thank him and praise him. Count on him!

5/28 Things of the Spirit

Rom 8:5 For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.

The Spirit of God has a certain agenda and disposition. It is opposed to the flesh which has its own nature. In the faith you have this Spirit’s disposition. Yielding to the Spirit, you perform as the Spirit would on any occasion. You are the physical representation of the will of God.

This is tremendous. You are actually the expression of the will of God in your very actions. What he wants to do is expressed through you perfectly as you yield. Maybe you thought it would be more dramatic, with sounds from Heaven or dramatic Hollywood music. But it is in your life without the seeming fantastic. The Spirit is simply performing acts of love and mercy through you.

You will know this by the love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness and self-control. This is it. You will see it as you say “Yes” to the Spirit. It is manifest through you. Yield from moment to moment knowing the Spirit of God is expressing himself through you for the extension of the gospel.

5/26 Way of the Spirit

Rom 7:6 But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.

This is liberating. No longer judged. No longer looking to be justified but liberated to be in relationship with God. You are filled with his Spirit and guided as you yield.

Before, you could only feel guilt for you fail at some point to following the written code. No matter how you try you are always guilty. But what a freedom you have now. Use it and enjoy it.

In yielding through prayer and to his love you can be confident of his leading. If you mess up push restart. This is liberty.
