Spiritual Prayer

Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.

โ€” Ephesians 6:18 NLT

_________________________________

Your Spiritual prayers are not always something that your mind understand, unless you have the gift to understand.

Spiritual Prayer is about getting into an Extreme Holy place of solitude, a private chamber where you can lay out with the Spirit and let Him empower you with might.

Many of us do not get that moment or even that private time to be alone with God.  When I did my 30 days of prayer.  I had that opportunity at the sanctuary.   Many of us might have to go to the house of the Lord on a specific day and time to get into this Spiritual fix.

You might even have to shut in all night for 12 hours, or more.

Also, be persistent for ALL BELIEVERS EVERY.  Don’t be selfish in your prayer time with the Savior.  When given this time with God.  Never go into that moment with a one track mind.  If you habe the opportunity to reach Heaven through your Spiritual Prayer moment, then pray for everyone who is in the faith with you.  Those you know and do not know.

Pray all the time like this.  Somewhat ever it takes to get your Spiritual Prayer going each time you pray.  We should never pray, and not go through the Spirit to reach the Lords place.  Don’t toss prayers to Heaven.  You know those quick prayers that are not focused and directive.  The ones we say when we have forgotten to pray.

So I guess I should tell us that we should never pray outside the Spirit.  

How can you get a letter sent to another person, if you dont put the stamps on it?

How can you call long distance without the area code?

The Spirit is the way to pray and communicate with God.  Stop and focus, making sure your prayers have a directive.  You want results after all.

Groaning Within

Romans 8:23  Even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body

————————————————–

Your inner groaning have been heard of the Spirit.  He will bring about comfort for you as you rely on His instruction.

We try not to complain about our situations, but it seems that We have to tell someone because no one is listening to our hearts cry.  That is not the truth, God hears the cry of His children, and He will not let you suffer unjustly.  

Our Spirit is connected to the constant flow of the Holy Spirit.   He knows when things are hard for you to handle.  He is aware of the times you have held your peace.  Those times are when He goes into action for us.  He gives comfort for those difficulties that we cannot seem to press our way through.  If we lean on the knowledge that is in the Word of God.  Trusting that He has our best interest at heart.

We all await the final process of our adoption into the family of God.  He has taken our shame and hidden it from us that we do not recall the bad and ugly person we was before we came to the Faith.  None of us were good, we all had been full of mischief.  To the point that we ended up in the gutters if life and needed to be cleaned.  He has come in His Lordship and redeemed us from the curse of the Law of Sin and death.   Once we denounce our sinfilled way, and turn from that wickedness, then He will hear from Heaven and heal our lands.  

Accept the name of the Lord upon your life.

We should not be like most kids who know they are adopted.  That when they can live their life’s in the goodness that was provided for them by loving parents, they look for their real parents.  Only to find degradation of life, or maybe their mother finally got things together, but never came back and took them in.  Let us not be like those children, who have to know their history and find that we were lost and had no one who truly cared for our well being like the Lord has.

Don’t feel rejected, or lost anymore, now that you have a Father who cares for you.  A Lord thinks willing to share His Kingdom with you.

Your way out of here is your adoption in Christ.  New life begins as soon as you let your old one go.

What makes us groan inside for the Hand of God to come in and fix things?  It is when we are overwhelmed by what has taken place and we find filth and dirt creeping back into our lives.   We groan and moan for help from our inner man, because the outer man doesn’t have a clue.

Spirit begets Spirit.  God in us and through us, knows what is going on with us and He will come and fix the broken and contrite hearts that are run down by life’s issues.

If you let Him, He will, but if you and I go back to the dirt, it is not His fault.

ย I Speak What I Believe.

We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak.

2 Cor. 4:13

๐Ÿ––

What we believe is not given just to our generation alone to have, but to all generations past, present, and future. 

This place we live in now has many faiths.  I guess I should actually say, Mini-faiths, as in small faith, very little belief in anything that is greater than men’s ability.

People believe what they see over what is in their hearts.  They stand on the physical and not the Spiritual.

Do you speak highly of what you have learned and studied for yourself, or what others have given you through side-bar conversations.

Our faith cannot be of others and we have not put it to good use for ourselves.

I am a preacher because of those who called the gift in me to come out, but those elders are now gone.  What keeps me motivated to speak what is my belief now?

It is personal now.  To see the salvation of God revealed to those who need Yeshua for themselves.  My goal is not to be famouse, but to be Spritiual relevant to an individual’s growth.  That my involvement inspire another to reach into the soul of another to bring them to the Lord.

What you believe will inspire others to come to Christ.

Not A Simple God

Psalm 92:5  How great are Your works, O LORD! Your thoughts are very deep.

รทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรท

How deep God is, and how much we get to know of Him, .  if we seek for the knowledge.

God is not simple and easy to understand.  Anyone who tells you that you can know all there is to God our Creator and King, doesn’t have a grip on who He is.

God makes known to whom He chooses at the given time He sees fit.  No one knows God to the fullest extend of who He is.  They may only make references of who He is based upon books and study of various items that men have shared through out time.  To know God in the fullness of all creation.  Is not simple at all.

When we cone to grips with that truth, we can gather enough information to walk upright before Him.  To the best of our human ability, the rest is only known by the Spirit of God.  He reveals as much as you are capable of ingesting.

Just because I may be over weight outwardky, doesn’t mean I can match my outward ability to over indulge with my inner understanding.  Many of us will only get so far in our capacity to comprehend the depth of who our Creator God is.  Christ in the flesh and being deity, is still a concept we have not fully mastered.  

We argue over what is simple to the Master, and those in whom understand without doubt cluttering their minds.

Ask yourself, how much more are you willing to learn of the Creator?  Even put a question to investing in the knowledge of who He is as Creator God, not just some story book fantasy conjured up by old people to keep the kids excited or subservient to their rules.

Knowing God through the Holy Spirit, is intimacy on a level beyond flesh and materials.   You must know Him in Spirit and in truth.  At least they that truly worship Him and not what He made alone, but who He is in being and power.

Live Worthy of God.

We pleaded with you, encouraged you, and urged you to live your lives in a way that God would consider worthy. For he called you to share in his Kingdom and glory.

โ€” 1 Thessalonians 2:12 NLT

How are you supposed to share in the Kingdom and Glory of God, if you don’t live your life according to His will?

Many people seem to think they are God’s favorite, and they don’t live their lives according to His Word.  It is amazing to me that we can get comfortable with claiming a victorious life, and we don’t have to do right.

You want royalty status, on a beggars mentality.  It is wrong to want the best life, and live outside the boundaries of the Kingdom that you say you serve.  

Those people are the type that take the Grace of God for granted on purpose.  They refuse to be told how to live their lives.  Spoiled brats want the prestige that comes with being known, and they squander the riches that they haven’t earned.  It is because of mom or dad that they have this wealth.  They donor work hard for what they spend.  

We cannot live our lives like that before the Lord.  We might not be able to buy Grace and Mercy, but we sure can maintain its worth in our appreciation to the Lord for supplying our needs.

It is our job as leaders in the Body of faith to remind you how to live.  To urge you to trust and depend upon the Lord God.  He supplies you and I worth everything we have need of in our daily life.

Ask yourself, are you living life as God expects you to?  Would He be proud of your daily accomplishments?  If He is pleased with you, then you don’t have anything to worry about.  If you could improve your life, are you working on it?

Favor With God.

Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.

Ex. 33:13

Father, we long for you continues favor upon our lives.  We seek you in the midst of our circumstance.  How to please you in our lives and not walk in the pleasures of flesh.

The Apostle Paul has  concern for those he works with in ministry.  He wants then to walk in the full measure of their faith that they believe in.

The Grace cannot be earned, it is the gift of God towards man.  We must take the time to know His statutes and put them to action in our lives.  Grace is but for a time, and once that time limit has been reached, there will be no more extensions applied to man.

The author is asking for the Grace God gives to those who know Him and have found this favor of God.  Those who live a life in service to the King almighty.    The Grace of God cannot be handled by those who do not know why Grace is applied to man.  Many take advantage if Grace periods that have been given, to extend their time to pay a debt.  This debt that man owes the Father cannot be set aside.  The answer to the Grace that we have been given is to serve the Lord with gladness for the rest of our time.

When men give Grace periods they do it because it is what makes them look good to extend a person a specific time to get something done. We live our lives under the Grace period of men, not realizing we have been given just as much from God and more.  

We can’t take advantage of who God is, He will not be mocked by men.  Men should get to know the Lord through His Word, and because He extends Grace to us all.  God is not willing that every man be punished to death, but that we all come to the knowledge of the truth.

In Any Situation.

12I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little.

Phil. 4:12

Can you struggle?  Do you have the ability to live a content life off of nothing?  Many of us would say yes, because of our struggles now, but if we have the ability to read this little blog note, then we are not as bad off as we think.  If you and I can go once a month to a restaurant and eat and pay the bill, we are not as bad off as we think.

We must learn how to humble ourselves and live modestly before the Lord.  Just because we have the option, we should never show boat what the Lord has given us, because, to whom much is given, much is required.  There is also the Scripture about those who have much will be taken because we misuse our abilities and never give God glory for what He has Made available to us.

When we are in the middle of our struggles, we tend to be self centered.  We work hard at making sure that we have all our essential needs and we do not tend to think of others and what they do not have.

I seem to recall as a boy growing up seeing my Grandmother help others even when we didn’t have enough to eat for ourselves and sure would extend herself to give to those who had less then we did.

There is always a place in time when you have to put yourself on the back burner, because someone else is a little bit lower on the totem pole of life.  When you extend yourself beyond what your able and you live from the residual, God sees it and it is counted for righteousness.

It is important to our Spiritual growth, that we learn how to get by with what we need and not what we desire.  We have to move away from fantasy faith living.  People believing God for fancy stuff over useful items that help win this war.

We loose to the eyes and freshly desires, when we are focused on our personal wants and not what God has supplied for us. In the field of Spiritual battle the Lord has given us what is needed to pull in the harvest and to plant new seedlings that we may see growth is the Eternal promised family.

Father Abraham was given a for sure promise, and God Creator is not a man that He cannot carry out what He said.

We need to get on board now, and stop living our lives outside of the faith view.  We cannot serve two masters.  One being the Eternal Father and King.  The other being our own selfish greed.

Who Knows?

King James 2000 Bible

Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves. jn. 6:43  

Yeshua made many decisions that took Him all over the region, and some received Him while others thought to take His life because of what He was preaching.  After all He is doing miracles and they hated Him even more.  Let someone come up to you and me and say that they are the Lord and Savior we have been waiting for over centuries.  

You would be just as sceptical as those Scribes and Pharisees.

The Lords plans are set in motion from the beginning of time.  He planned everything to a particular point in time and His Word will not return to Him void.

Many people may find themselves in a place where their lives feel good and empty, but the Word ofnthe Lord will always have a report to turn in.

These men who think that they have all the secrets there is about the Messiah, are stumped at what the Savior has said to them about being the Bread of Life sent down from Heaven.

It reminds me if the time when Israel was hungry and the Lord God provided Manna from Heaven for them to partake.  All of a sudden they get tired of what the Lord gives and complains about that.

These men are in worse condition, because they have been occupied by the enemy and they have learned how to live in captivity.   They found a way to keep their lives going even under the rule of people who did not believe.

So, when the Messiah does show up after years of Prophetic utterances.  They are full of doubt and refuse to here with ears of Righteousness.  They no longer anticipated the coming of the Messiah in their season.  Many of us complain and grow comfortable under duress of oppression.  We don’t look forward to the miraculous hand of God.  We attempt a life around our turments.  We know how far the leash allows us to go and we do not pull against it anymore.  We stay tamed by the world’s rules of engagement.  They won’t let us believe as we should.  They have infiltrated the faith with their infectious lifestyles and now the Body of Christ is tarnished.  We suffer because of what we have grown accustomed to in this life.

Modern day Pharisees and scribes who turn the truth to for our daily habits.  They make us to believe that we are not free for sure.  Because, once we have sinned in their minds we cannot be free from it.  We claim sinner status because we do not believe that Christ has fully redeemed us from the curse, and we live our lives half way in and half way out.

Who knows what His plans are and how He is wanting to carry them out?  The Spirit does. and He will reveal in due time.  If we do not faint, or pass out under the weight of doubt and fear.

Hope and Wait.

It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.

Lam. 3:26

Noisy and obnoxious, is not really letting your true voice be heard.  People yell as if that gets them somewhere.  When all it does is cause others to close off from you.

Be quiet, peaceful when everything is swirling over your head.  Instead of bawling fists and swinging at the air for answers.   Throw up our hands in surrebder to God perfect unexplained will.

If you don’t have the directions to get somewhere and the person riding along knows the way.  Let them tell you all the turns you have to make, because you might not know the current status of the streets.

Detours are not predicted, they are expected.

I do believe in waiting on the Lord to give me my exit strategy.  I just need to learn how not to pace the floor in expectancy of what the Lord has done already. bathe delay is not for God to catch up on His part, it is for us to learn patience perfectly.

Committed To Trust

O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:

1 Tim. 6:20

We must have a foundation if faith that we stand on, so that we do not walk in false religion.

Faith and science don’t always mix, we must be careful not to allow those who only know what they see from telescopes and certain satellite pictures to be fact. We stand on principles that have foundation and proof on earth.

We have been untrusted with the secret of the Holy Spirit, who reveals to us as He sees fit.  He speaks the mysteries that we base our deepest faith on.  We can’t give up when we know there is more made available to us.

He only reveals these things to those who desire the depth it takes to go deeper.  Some people are saisfied simple and easy.  They only scratch the surface of deepness, they can not think harder than they choose to live.

As much of Him you desire to have, is as deep as you go.  There are deeper depths and higher hieghts in Christ.  Not more confusing patterns to follow, but a sold out committed life as a disciple who is willing to loose his/her life for the Words sake.

Invest everything in what you believe about Christ as The Son of God.  Give no thought of saving and soaring yourself as we fight for our Eternal existence.
