There is only one thing that is going to accomplish the purposes of God, and that is being in the Spirit.
God wants men and women who are willing to submit and submit, and yield and yield to the Holy Spirit until their bodies are saturated and soaked with God -- you then realize that God your Father has you in such a condition that at any moment He can reveal His will to you.
"Son of man, can these bones live? and I answered, O Lord God, Thou knowest" (Ezekiel 37:3)
EMBRACING HUNGER AND THIRST FOR GOD
The Lord desires us to enter into a deeper level of pressing into Him in 2019, or what is called "pursuit after Him." It is a stirring of the Holy Spirit deep within that literally awakens your inner man so that YOU KNOW THAT YOU KNOW there is something more that He wants to share with you. This is called HOLY HUNGER.
Hunger for God is one of the greatest signs of life a person can have. We must press past intellectual awareness to hunger for heartfelt encounters that change and transform.
"O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee; my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is." - Psalm 63:1
May the Holy Spirit show us our leanness and farness from the desired place of union. What we desire is a great hunger and thirst for God.
HEARING HIS VOICE
"O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord" (Ezekiel 37:4).
He speaks so loud and clear and so distinct that a believer who is filled with the Spirit hears every word.
The world has to be brought to a knowledge of the truth, but that will only be brought about through human instrumentality, and that will be when the human instrument is at a place where he will say all the Holy Spirit directs him to say.
"Be still, and know that I am God." (Psalm 46:10) -- the place of tranquility, where we know that He is leading and moving us by the mighty power of His Spirit.
It is only the Spirit that can make the crooked straight. Only yield, so that He may have full control of all you are. We must get to that place where we shall see God and know His voice -- then He sends us with a message that brings life, power, and victory.
Expectation pulls virtue out of God because one of the foremost keys in hearing from God is living with expectation toward Him. Expectation places a demand on the Holy Spirit. He is willing to commune and speak to us every moment of our lives and He is as close as our own breath.
Do you want to hear from God? Live with expectation. Pray with expectation. Listen with expectations. You WILL hear His voice.
GETTING INTO THE SPIRIT TO RECEIVE HIS WILL
"..and they stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army" (Ezekiel 37:10).
It is man's utmost degree of SUBMISSION that God finds to be His opportunity, and it is for His word to awaken. "..all things are possible to him that believes" (Mark 9:23). But if we are to do the will of God at the right time and place, we get into the Spirit and so give God a fair chance.
God is bringing my life to a new beginning.
I press into and lay hold of the kingdom of heaven in an aggressive way.
I have a burning heart of fiery witness and passion when it comes to exhorting others in their walk with God.
I repent from trying to do God's will without abiding in His presence.
