This morning, there are several directives I received:
1. KEEP YOUR HEART HUNGRY AND THIRSTY FOR THE WORD OF GOD.
Keep your consistency in reading God’s word and perseveringly live the Word out. With or without an impulse of the Spirit, see yourself as someone who is thirsty and hungry for the Truth (that is the identity we should have). So we don’t need to have spiritual decline or ups and downs in thirst for His Word. Read the Word more often, whether you are on work or not, that is your first priority. During the busy times we need even more as a source of strength and at the same time keep us to remain accurately connected with heavenly frequencies. Therefore reading God’s Word has to be the first priority in all circumstances.
2. KEEP LIVING A LIFE IN THE DEATH OF THE FLESH
Whatever the situation and conditions we face, decide to walk on the way of the cross. No need to be confused with making decisions. Test and ‘detect’ what smells of thoughts and decisions we want to make. Make sure it is only the smell of death of self-love, love of money, and love the world or in short, only the scent of obedience we have in our lives. If we detect the ‘other’ smell, immediately crucify that decision or desire.
In the days to come, as the world turmoil continues, people will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, and lovers of the world – that’s what makes the world darker. We must be different because we are the salt and light of the world. At the time of wickedness on earth is increasingly reaching its peak, the death of Christ in our lives must be more perfect. So that we will be lifted up by God to destroy evil and to present the reality of the Kingdom of heaven!
3. NOTICE CAREFULLY EVERY VOICE OF THE LORD THAT COMES IN OUR LIFE – FOLLOW EVERY SIMPLE DIRECTIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT GIVES.
For example, the Holy Spirit encourages us to be diligent in reading God’s word, just obey, it’s not a difficult direction. And believe it has a meaning and purpose for the future.
We must consider that our current existence is greatly influenced by our obedience to the voice of the Spirit in the past. If our emotions remain positive today and there is no fear even in the midst of world turmoil, it is the result of following the Holy Spirit’s direction in the past. Maybe it was as simple as joining a prayer group, praying, and declaring the Word every hour, etc. For those who followed that direction diligently, we find that our lives remain stable in all aspects today – from emotional aspects to the economy, etc. We experience God protecting and preserving our lives. Thus the simple Holy Spirit’s directions today are important for our preparation in the future.
It seems God’s directive has nothing to do with finances, family, and other aspects of life, but our part is just OBEY. When we obey, then we will experience God lifting us up! We are brought into the world of God. Others may shake, but we don’t! Not by our strength nor by power, but because God brought us to live in a different world! #ILoveGod
