Ephesians 3:19 - “Be filled with all the fullness of God."
We want our whole being to be so full of the life of Jesus that the Holy Spirit can speak and act through us. We want the Word in our heart and the faith it produces. We want to live always in Him.
We cry out for the inspiration of the God of power. We want to act in the Holy Spirit. We want to breathe out divine life. We want the glory, miracles, and wonders that work out the purpose of God for our life.
We want to be absorbed by God, and we want to know nothing among men except Jesus and Him crucified(1 Corinthians 2:2).
2 Timothy 1:7 - “for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control."
The innocent desire you have to protect yourself will cost you dearly when it comes to walking with God. It infected the Israelites to such a degree that they forgort the signs and wonders(Exodus 14:11).Suddenly they saw themselves as just people again - - not people with whom God dwells, but just people.
Satan will get you into a natural rather than a supernatural perspective – that you are just a natural person. That’s why you need to think with the mind of Christ.
Affirm and meditate on His Word continually. Speak it to your problems…and watch faith rise up. Then you’ll have the right perspective and victory will be yours!
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!
Isaiah 10:27 - “And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.”
Jesus is the Christ. The Greek word for Christ means “the Anointed One”. And since Isaiah 10:27 tells us the yoke of the devil is destroyed by the anointing, we don’t have to run scared when the devil comes against us. You are destined to overcome. You have that anointing – the Anointed One – residing on the inside of you if you are born again.
Stir up that anointing. Stand up in the midst of the storm. As you speak to it with all the power and authority that’s been given to you, you’ll dominate the storm.
Romans 8:33 - “Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies."
The book of Job tells us that Satan came to God’s throne and complained about Job.(Job 1:6-12)God’s throne is the most holy place. So why did God allow Satan to come before Him in the most holy place? Because of Adam’s sin, He had the right to take Adam’s place and come before God.
So, what happened to Job cannot happen to us. Job longed for a mediator, but he had none.(Job 9:33). Today we have Jesus as our Mediator, mediating the New Covenant between God and man. However, since the devil cannot come before God any more, he comes to you on earth and accuses you in your conscience. Satan cannot come before God to accuse you because it is God who justifies you through the terms of the New Covenant. Jesus’ holy blood has given you perfect standing in the presence of God!
2 Chronicles 16:9 - "The eyes of the LORD search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him."
So often we try to figure things out instead of just trusting God and doing what He says in His Word. As a result, we end up in disobedience -- which always leads to unbelief. Don't let the giants in your life scare you into hiding. Let God know you'll trust Him and His Word no matter what the circumstances say or look like. Then worship Him knowing you'll see Him demonstrate His power and faithfulness on your behalf.
Affirmation: I keep my heart faithful toward God so that He shows Himself strong on my behalf.
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)
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
