1 Corinthians 2:14: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
Man cannot analyze the ways of the Spirit because his natural mind cannot comprehend God. In vss 9 and 10 it says that God has revealed the deep things of God to us through His Spirit. If His Spirit dwells in you then you have access to the deep mysteries of God. As you spend time in His Word, don’t approach Him with your natural mind, ask the Holy Spirit to open your spiritual eyes. You will be amazed at what God has in store for you…a supernatural lifestyle!
1Corinthians 2:10 "God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God"
There are great rewards in living a life in the Spirit. One of those rewards is that we get revelation and insight concerning our life purpose. Do you feel like you are going nowhere slowly? Do you feel like you are stagnant? Tap into the Spirit by asking the Lord to show His great plans for your life.
Philippians 4:19: "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus"
How many times have I used this scripture to declare that my needs are to be met? Eina, wrong verse to use as Pauls writes and says that “your” needs will be met, yip, it does not say my needs. So, as we sow our seed not grudgingly nor sparingly we will reap what Paul wrote. Today, enjoy sowing and your needs will be met.
John 14:12 - “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”
“he who believes in Me” means everyone which includes you and me. God is raising up a radical generation who will have a revelation of this truth. It’s time to get hungry for more!
Proverbs 4:18 "But the path of the just is like the shining sun,That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day."
You are the righteousness of God; or in other words, you are the showpiece of God’s saving grace and His forgiveness on this earth. As you seek God and allow Him to take control of every facet of your life you will find that your life shines brighter and brighter and God will use you more and more to change and impact other peoples lives.
Hebrews 12:1-2:“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
We must wake up as believers. What we do on this side of eternity will determine our reward for the rest of eternity! Run your race! Don’t wait for eternity…you’re in it now!
III John 1:2: "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth"
According to John my health and prosperity is equated to the way my soul prospers. My soul is made up of a mind, a will and emotions. May you today grow in understanding, may your will engage by using that understanding and may your emotions not distract you from what you understood.
2 Corinthians 12:9 “And he said to me “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
In our weakness, He is made strong. In our weakness, as painful as it can be, that is where we truly depend on God and through it, He shows Himself strong in our lives. Don’t be afraid of your weaknesses, for God is there and through that, He not only reveals Himself to you, but also to the world.
Romans 8:26 “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words”
Have you ever found yourself dealing with a challenge and realise that you are unable to pray or that even though you pray you do not feel like you are breaking through? Well, take courage! You do have a Helper. In the Spirit we have a promise of continual covering of prayer. The Spirit is interceding for you and making sure you win.
Psalm 139:1-5 "1 O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. 2 You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. 3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. 4 You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord. 5 You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head"
There is nothing that your Heavenly Father doesn’t know about you. He deeply cares for you with an everlasting love. He knows you pain, your worries, your insecurities. He knows exactly where you are at in life. Every single step, He is there! In every single moment He is with you! Practise His presence…. In the middle of your day stop and thank Him…talk to Him. He is waiting for you!
