Although God will bless His people, there are some things that He will not agree with--for example, our religious mindsets. The Holy Spirit cannot stay and dwell in these wrong concepts as they are contrary to the truth, because He is the Spirit of Truth.
THERE ARE THREE MINDSETS WE NEED TO CHANGE:
The FIRST mindset is one that most Christians can be guilty of. Either consciously or unconsciously, WE ARE TRYING TO CHANGE OUR OLD NATURE (OLD MAN) AND IMPROVE OURSLEVES. We fail to realize that Jesus never came to do that. Jesus crucified the old man so that by faith, we can walk in the new man who is already created in righteousness and holiness.
Because of this, the enemy tries to make people feel they are not qualified to live in service to God (God's purpose for our life)--but remember, satan is a liar and a thief. Jesus qualified us 100 percent. It's never 90 percent God, 10 percent us--it's 100 percent Him. Living in the Golry of God is who we are.
As you behold the glory of the Lord "...we are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord" (2 Corinthians 3:18).
He is going to "...present you faultless before the presence of His glory...." (Jude 1:24).
We are His trophy and His workmanship. He is the One who does the work, while we do the yielding. We need to live in what He has done, and not in what we are trying to do. Don't pray for God to send His glory--He already has. We aren't changed from glory to glory by trying--we're changed by His Spirit.
The SECOND thing that we are prone to is "false responsibility." We are responsible for what He gives us, and that is it! A heavy spirit makes people feel responsible for things and people they can do nothing about. We cannot change anyone, and we certainly can't make anyone do something.
Our responsibility is to do what He tells us to do, say what He asks us to say, and go where He wants us to go. That is all God requires from us--and we get to keep our joy!
The THIRD religious thing we fall into is carrying "false burdens." As intercessors, we need only to yield to the Spirit. When that anointing falls on us and we do some warfare, we have to remember that it isn't us, it's the anointing from Heaven. We may do some declaring, or we may laugh, weep or fall down on the floor and cry out, but no matter what, the burden will eventually lift because Jesus is the Ultimate Intercessor seated at the right hand of the Father.
Sometimes we just have to sit at the feet of Jesus, rest, and let Him shower us with His love. He is not asking us to run around 24/7 getting all worn out.
He is the lover and keeper of our soul. We are the apple of His eye, His beloved. We can rest and live in His glory because He has covered us with it. He called us for Himself--we are His treasures!
