John 3:29,30 - “The bride belongs to the bridegroom….He must increase, but I must decrease.”
His life is manifested power overflowing. We must decrease if the life of God is to be manifested. there is not room for two kinds of life in one body. Death for life – that is the price to pay for the manifested power of God through us.
As we die to selfish desire, there comes a fellowship within, perfected cooperation, you ceasing, God increasing.
God in us is a living substance, a spiritual nature. You live by another life, the“faith of the Son of God” (Galatians 2:20).
Mark 16:17 - “And these signs shall follow them that believe;…"
Because of the tense used with the Greek word for "believe”, this verse would be better translated“These signs shall follow them that are constantly believing…” In other words, these signs don’t come automatically just because a person once walked aside and gave his heart to Jesus. These signs follow those who are constantly believing for them to occur.
Like everything else in the Kingdom of God, signs and wonders are activated by faith. Ask the Holy Spirit to rekindle the flame in your heart to see the supernatural signature of God on your life or your ministry. For the miraculous to occur, He needs you to be constantly releasing your faith – for it is your faith that activates the supernatural!
Philippians 3:13,14 - “Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
Press into God by “adding to.” Add a few minutes more to your prayer time, Praise a few minutes more. Stretch yourself. Press through the limitations your flesh has tried to impose on you. See yourself turning from the past toward the future God has for you in Christ Jesus.
Settle in your spirit and in your mind what you need to do to advance in God’s PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE. Now, see yourself rising up and marching toward those marks with faith in your heart as the Holy Spirit leads you and give you His strength to get there.
Isaiah 26:9 - “My soul yearns for you in the night.”
What is the most worthwhile thing you can experience on earth? Nothing less than God Himself! What is the first and most important thing to be done each day? It is nothing less than to seek, to know, to live, and to praise God.
So begin every day of the year with the impassioned prayer of David:“O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you…in a dry and weary land” (Psalm 63:1).As you persevere in this, you will learn to expect the presence of God to surround you throughout the day.
So be ablaze with His passion! And you will step into a new confidence this day. You will not be fooled by the voice of the intimidator, but you will rise up with more freedom and spontaneity than ever before. You will rise up "wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove"! (Matthew 10:16)
"And the God of peace will swiftly pound satan to a pulp under your feet! And the wonderful favor of our Lord Jesus will surround you." (Romans 16:20)
Revelation 3:20 - "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me."
In order to embrace the love of God, invite Jesus in and commune with Him basking and soaking in His love until you become love. Now you have the God kind of love flowing from your spirt in to the lives of others.

John 8:39 - "They answered and said to Him, 'Abraham is our father.' Jesus said to them, 'If you are Abraham's children, do the deeds of Abraham.'"Abraham was an alien and a stranger on the earth. The goal of his life was to have a place in what God…Continue
