What is it to be led of the Spirit? Is it always moving in the gifts? Speaking in tongues?
The Spirit led life is one of constant communion and fellowship with the Holy Spirit. How can we be in this constant communion with the Lord?
We as human beings have a pattern of functioning in our daily living. Each one of us is made of three parts – spirit, soul and body.
- Our spirit is something that is designed to connect with the Holy Spirit
- Our soul is our will, action and emotions knit together, designed to be a balance (like a weighing scale balance) which can shift its loyalty towards the spirit or towards the flesh our body.
- Our body is our flesh which has natural appetites for touch and pleasure.
It is the order of which we give priority or preference in our daily living that determines the outcome in our lives. The Bible, the Word of GOD, is a manual for living a healthy, prosperous, abundant life; it emphasizes that the order should be: spirit, soul and body.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 – Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and the body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Anytime this order or priority is changed there is internal conflict, confusion, strife; and the results are seen in different areas of an individual’s personality or life; affects on both emotional and physical health.
The answer for our lives is found in the Creator Himself as we were never made to function without God! We were created by GOD for GOD; and the only way to connect to God-His Spirit, is through our spirit.
John 4:24 – “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
I am excited at this point as we are learning these things. Wow! Amen! Thank you Jesus!
Each one of us is like a weighing balance. What I mean by this is that when we feed on the things of God, mainly the Word of God, our soul (will, action and emotions) will be influenced and will lean towards our spirit. Our spirit connects to the Holy Spirit, and we begin to hear the voice of GOD! On the other hand, when we feed ourselves with the things of the world, they draw us away from God.
With this let’s recommit our lives afresh to feed our spirit, which nurtures us and takes us closer to God. The only way for this is the Word of God. The Word of God is the Voice of God, those who read, meditate and listen are drawn closer to God! Jesus wants you to be close to Him because safety lies in following the Shepherd’s Voice. God loves to invest in our spirit and fuel our soul with His heavenly Kingdom passion; never ending, never ceasing until we demonstrate the nature of God!
Repentance is a shift from being led by fleshy appetites to being led by the spirit! It’s time we press into God!
Pray: Lord, I choose Your ways and not my own; let me be moved by You for You. Lord, open Your Word and teach me Your ways; I want to hear afresh from Your Spirit this day onwards.
I pray the heavens will open as you pray this in Jesus’ mighty name! Let the eyes of your spiritual understanding be enlightened in the mighty name of Jesus! Amen!
I pray this teaching was a blessing, do let us know your thoughts.
