The Holy Spirit shows us God’s Divine order 6
To flow in God’s Power, we have to live according to His Divine order.
There is something about Power that humans crave for, we know there are different types of Power, we have money Power, physical Power, countries have their military Power, – and America prides itself as being the most powerful country in the world.
Now what I find hilarious is that countries with Power, try and stop other countries from getting Power. ( Anyway let me not get involved in politics, I don’t think it’s my calling).
The only Power I know is from my helper, some call Him the Holy Ghost, and some call Him the Holy Spirit, I call Him both of the above, but also He is my best friend.
I can’t survive without His Power.
However, there are conditions to the Holy Ghost power, which is, one MUST live by the Holy Word of God. (God’s Divine Order).
The main reason I do my best to live according to God’s divine order is that I need His Power.
I have a lot of enemies,(everywhere I go, they show up, it’s not if, it’s when and how therefore I need Holy ghost power to discern what they are up to) so when they come against me I MUST be ready to fight the good fight of Faith, which we call Spiritual warfare.
There are some things my flesh wants. Hence I have to put my flesh in check and let my spirit have and take dominion.
13 For if you live according to [the dictates of] the flesh, you will surely die. But if through the Power of the [Holy] Spirit you are [habitually] putting to death (making extinct, deadening) the [evil] deeds prompted by the body, you shall [really and genuinely] live forever (Romans 8:13 Amplified Bible)
If the enemy already has you, he doesn’t fight you, if the enemy doesn’t have control over you, then he fights you everywhere you go, so that’s the story of my life. Am an old soul, so I’ll be alright, my eyes are on the eternal weight of glory.
The Bible says we vigilant & watchful, nowadays we need eyes all around our head, (joke) in spiritual terms our discernment must be strong.
The Bible says:
8 Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [[a]in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour. (1 Peter 5:8)
That’s why one can’t afford not to live by God’s Divine order, as we live by God’s word, not only does it give us confidence, that we would win the battle, it provides us Faith that we can hear God clearly.
Some folks say we don’t live by emotion but by Faith, which is true but Faith works alongside with Peace and Peace is an emotion.
According to hopefaithprayer.com, Peace is the Emotion of Faith. Peace is that condition of the heart that communicates to us that God is fully involved in our situation.
Yes, we live by Faith not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:6b), and when God is in it He back it up with the assurance of PEACE.
Therefore if in doubt, don’t move, continue to seek God, if there is no peace about a situation, and put it on hold, trust me, there is a reason.
Like the lyrics of a song (Sarah Reeves, I just want you) goes, if God’s not in it, I don’t want it, and if God’s not in it, there will be no peace about it.
In fact, our prayer should be, if You are not in any action I want to take, may it never happen and may I have no peace about it.
Let us never underestimate the Power of Peace. The Bible says
7 and the Peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 New King James Version (NKJV)
The amplified version puts it this way, And God’s Peace [shall be yours, that [a]tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that Peace] which transcends all understanding shall [b]garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
When one is full of the precious Holy Ghost, it’s obvious and conspicuous, but more importantly, it’s that state of tranquillity – I have written it before that the Holy Ghost is the answer to the mental health issues that is so rampant at the minute.
In the early Church, such a term never existed; all they knew was that God had given them a spirit of POWER, LOVE & SOUND MIND.
My heart goes out to the people that suffer by it, especially in the body of Christ. However, there is a big problem here, which is members of the congregation.
If a Pastor takes his life, who is meant to be the pillar of the Faith and strength, it’s an important issue that Church leaders need to address, as it doesn’t help content for the Faith.
Again, my heart and prayers go out to the loved ones and families that have lost someone due to mental health issues.
I also believe that there is something terribly wrong in the Christian faith protocol, and It needs to be addressed, many of their practices are nowhere found in the Bible, please don’t forget, everybody will account for their actions.
Such protocol involves so much manipulation, and this is hindering God’s plan. The good thing with God is that, He always has many other options.
Preachers should cut out games and keep it real. People and not stupid, when games are being played, people realize it, then it causes mistrust.
I wonder what percentage of people don’t trust preachers. I think a poll needs to be done in this area. – Just saying.
To end on a positive note, we all need the Power of the Holy Spirit to endure to the end, especially the body of Christ, mechanical religion will not cut it.
Remember Jesus Christ is the Light & Saviour of the World.
Until Next time, Keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving.
Peace. Daniel – The Christian Activist & Warrior.
