This morning there is the direction of the Holy Spirit that I need to observe: Keep building the awareness of God’s presence in daily lives through praying in tongue, declaring and reading the Word. This should be your focus.
Put your focus not in the external. Stop building the awareness of the external things, because the principle is: you are a spiritual man. When your spirit is burning, then you can conquer all the external things.
Ensuring the spiritual man to always be burning and blazing are the most essential things in this life. There are many people that resolutely build their natural/external lives, but it is not for you! Every day, you have to resolutely build your spiritual man!
Retrain your mind that has always been “busy” in building outward life, direct your mind to build your spiritual man to be what God wants: To be sharp in listening to God’s voice, hungry and thirsty for the word, able to move according to the intention of the Holy Spirit and be in a strong prophetic dimension. And experience the awareness of the reality of His continuous presence every time. There should always be an effort from us to increase the intensity of the reality of His presence by praying in tongues and declaring the word in such a way until we keep progressing.
I am hearing the Holy Spirit says: Let’s do it this wholeheartedly, fervently and all the way!! It really determines other aspects to be accurate. That is the meaning of ‘love your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength’. Thus, obedience to His word is no longer a difficult thing, we become the doers of the Word ‘easily’ because our spirits are always burning!
The Holy Spirit reminds me to be careful with this kind of thought: “It is not possible for our spiritual condition to always be burning and blazing, sometimes it can decrease and it is normal!!” Realize it! It is the mind of the devil! And it’s a perverted thought! That’s not natural! Because our lives’ standard is the word of God! And the word of the Lord said:
Romans 12:11-12 Not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer;
Ephesians 6:18 …praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—
Therefore, I make my decision, I will not let any decrease in my perseverance in building the awareness of God’s reality. I will make sure that every second, my spirit keeps burning!! This is not something impossible, I can do this!! I will keep actively directing my mind to think of things from the Spirit and pray in the Spirit!! This is the only way to experience life in the Throne Room of God! #ILoveGod
