"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised." - Luke 4:18
God is bringing us to a place where we know the Spirit of the Lord is upon us. If we have not got to that place, God wants to bring us to the fact of what Jesus said in John 14, "...I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you forever."
Because the Spirit of the Lord came upon Him who is our head, we must see to it that we acknowledge the same anointing, and that the same Spirit is upon us.
DWELLING IN HIM
There is no limit as to what we may become if we dwell and live in the Spirit. In the Spirit of prayer we are taken from earth right away into heaven.
We feel as we dwell in the Spirit that the fire which burned in the hearts of the two men on their way to Emmaus (Luke 24: 13-32), when Jesus walked with them, is burning in our heart. It is sure to come to pass when we walk with Him, our hearts will burn -- it is the same power of the Spirit.
They could not understand it then, but a few hours later they saw Him break the bread, and their eyes were opened.
LIVING IN THE SPIRIT
If we breathe His thoughts into our thoughts, and live in the unction of the Holy Spirit as He lived, then there will be evidences that we are in Him; and His works we will do.
"To know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God." -- Ephesians 3:19
"Filled with God" means you are emptied of self, leaving no room for doubting or fearing. You are filled with the love of Jesus flowing into your heart, and perfect love casts out fear.
LIVING IN ABUNDANCE
If we will only walk in the Spirit and the unction of the Spirit, there will be no lack. There is only lack where faith is not substance.
If we will obey the Lord there is nothing He will not give us since He has given us Jesus. The Spirit will have to reveal to us that fact that, because He has given us Jesus, He has given us ALL THINGS.
QUESTIONS TO ASK MYSELF:
Am I willing to lay down all that I may have God's all?
Am I willing to seek and don't stop seeking (Matthew 7:7,8) until I know the Spirit of the Lord is upon me?
Am I willing to cry out to Him until the Glory of the Lord is upon me?
