When I watched the Virtual Sunday Service, I received a directive impression from the Holy Spirit when we’re pushing into His presence:
1. The Holy Spirit will bring us to grow in wisdom, stature, and favor.
God wants us to stretch out the measure of faith in our lives in such a way that grows desire and hope for the Spirit to raise us in wisdom, stature, and favor.
Hebrews 11: 6 (NASB) “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him”
(We’ve discussed this in the last few days)
2. The Holy Spirit will bring us to experience the revelation of ‘the blessed field’ – the kind of work that He has set to become our profession and our field of service as well
When everyone is ‘at home’ and many companies have to stop producing, this is the best time for us to reset our lives – especially in our work aspect!
If all this time we are actually ‘not enjoying the kind of work we are doing’, it is just because to meet family daily needs – then it is the best time to reset our lives! We are getting ready to start a new life once this pandemic ends!
So ask the Holy Spirit to reveal what is in the heart of the Father regarding the type of work we must begin as soon as this pandemic ends. Learn to recognize the type of passion that God is burning up in your life. Make the passion that the Spirit blazes up every time you pray or worship as a guide or standard in designing our lives after the pandemic.
Here is the standard: ‘Ora et Labora’ – we pray, seeking the guidance of the Spirit in our lives until the Holy Spirit reveals the thoughts of God that is what in His heart for us (1 Corinthians 2: 10-12). Only after the Spirit has revealed the Father’s plan, we will move to follow the Spirit’s direction.
I believe, as we continue to build fellowship with the Father, the Holy Spirit searches diligently the depths of the Father relating to us, and He will reveal upon us!
The journey of life as a child of God is not filled with ‘predictions’ or unclear guessing, but it is very clear, systematic, measurable, and progressive! The Holy Spirit will lead us to move forward and progress in Him!
If all this time our journey of life seems only ‘wandering around in the spiritual wilderness’, this is the time for us to reset our lives to step in and conquer our promised land!
When Isaac prayed released his birthright blessing to Jacob, the Bible records:
Genesis 27: 27-29 (NASB) “So he came close and kissed him; and when he smelled the smell of his garments, he blessed him and said, “See, the smell of my son Is like the smell of a field which the LORD has blessed; Now may God give you of the dew of heaven, And of the fatness of the earth, And an abundance of grain and new wine; May peoples serve you, And nations bow down to you; Be master of your brothers, And may your mother’s sons bow down to you. Cursed be those who curse you, And blessed be those who bless you.”
The Bible emphasis, when God brings us into the fields that He has blessed, we will enjoy:
(1) God will give life that everything we do to prosper in our hand,
(2) God will provide the type of work or profession that will make us enjoy various blessings or abundance from Him,
(3) God will make us enjoy the promotion from Him, which makes our existence famous among peoples and nations,
(4) God will raise us among our relatives or family,
(5) God will bless those who bless and do good to us, but He will also punish those who intend to do evil to us.
This is a guarantee of the blessing that He provides for all those who want to listen to God’s voice and perseveringly harmonize their lives in God’s ways. #ILoveGod
