“FOLLOWING CHRIST IN THIS LIFE….”
…Requires one to have faith in He that dwells within us.
“And Jesus said to him, “‘If You can?’ All things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:23
Do we really know the ways of God? Do we really know how to keep in step with the Holy Spirit that dwells within us? The Word of God states that; “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Proverbs 14:12. The Holy Bible suppose to be our [B]asic [I]nstructions [B]efore [L]eaving [E]arth, however we tend to lean on our own understanding and begin to drift away from the truth of the Word and incorporate the things of the world; based on what we see, into our walk of faith, leaving us struggling within ourselves; flesh fighting against the Spirit and then we wonder why things aren’t working out according to the way we planned them. We receive many signals from the Spirit that tries to lead us, teach us, and guild us into all truth and the correct way to walk this walk of faith, but there always seems to be present with us this nature that keeps us from carrying out the things of God as we ought to…I’ve failed in this area many times in my life. God states that; “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9. And again the Apostle Paul states in Romans chapter 7:14-23; “For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I… For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.” The classic battle of the “flesh against the spirit.” As the Body of Christ…a spiritual church that is being built up in Christ, need to start realizing and claiming that identity in Christ and that authority given by Christ in this life and walk that walk of faith with such kingdom virtues that we begin to witness the power of the Holy Spirit just as if it were the yesterdays of our brothers and sisters that are now in that “Hall of Fame of Faith..” Hebrews chapter 11. Let us learn from them, for they were just as we are today, but with some exceptions…they believed; He said it…I believe it, should be our attitude when walking in faith…The Word said it, and I believe it. No room for doubt, confusion, discord, wavering or arguing amongst one another, but loving one another, praying for one another and speaking with the authority that has been given us from on high as men and women of God. Amen. Therefore, let us take on this attitude as we continue to walk in faith beholding before us the path many have already sacrificed to keep this torch, this flame of the Holy Spirit lit within us as children of the living God. May the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob watch over you, protect you, keep you and bless EVERYTHING you do and touch in Jesus name. Amen…God bless.
REMEMBER!!! Go take a peek at the novel if you haven’t yet. “Battlefield of Angels” It’s a glimpse at spiritual warfare around us and rate this. Though fictional in content many of the events are realand a shadow of my life.
