Romans 6:11 Likewise you also, reckon yourselves (comes from the Greek word: Logizomai) to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I found that every believer who didn’t focus/devote themselves to build the Divine Logic in their lives, they would always face struggles and spiritual fluctuations. There’s always a time when the nature/the existence of the ‘old man’ manifesting itself again in the believer’s lives. Whenever the ‘old man’s’ nature still manifested in the believers’ lives, there will always be chaos that injure and destroy the structure of the Body of Christ which should be manifested in the midst of believers (James 3:16, 4:1-2, 1 Cor 3:1-4).
I found that it is very important for us to understand the ‘secret of the Kingdom of Heaven’ (Matt 13:11-12). For if we really ‘do not have’, then, automatically we will lose everything that we thought we already have; on the contrary, if we really ‘have’, God would automatically give more abundantly.
The reason why many believers failed to build Divine Logic in their lives is because they ‘didn’t have’, so that they lost what they ‘have had’ and what they ‘thought they have’.
What should we ‘have’ to grow in Him and easily build the divine logic in our lives? When I prayed and sought God’s face, Holy Spirit guided me to ask several things from the Father, because He has promised that if we ‘do not have’ what we supposed to have, we may ask from Him and whatever that we ask for, the Father will give it to us (Matt 7:7-11).
- Ask for a heart that is thirsty and hungry for God – a heart that keeps burning with first love in Him
- Ask for a spirit that is meek, teachable, easy to be mold, and willing to change
- Ask for the spirit of prayer to work in us
- Ask for the spirit of wisdom, revelation and knowledge of God
- Ask for a spiritual stature that is always victorious, full of authority, impactful and powerful.
Those are the five aspects that we need to start building the divine logic in our lives!
~ Without a hungry and thirsty heart for God, automatically there would be thousands of reasons that we could give to not devote ourselves in the apostle’s teaching.
~ Without a meek spirit, we tend to believe the human logic – that we already have – more than having the openness to receive the word (which mostly are contrary from the acceptable logic of many peoples) and we would find it hard to make the word as a standard/new pattern that we should build in our lives.
~ Without the spirit of the prayer’s work in us, automatically there will be no dynamics of the work of the word & of the spirit in our lives.
~ Without the spirit of wisdom & revelation’s work in us, it is hard for us to receive the mind of Christ & to know His ways! Isaiah has prophesied in Isaiah 55:8 – “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
~ Without the victorious dimension that always go with the believers’ lives, automatically they would live under pressure and intimidation.
But when we ask again to the Father for the kingdom aspects (the 5 points above) – by starting to ‘have’ – the Father will give more and more. The word, devotion, strong determination and the dynamics of the Spirit that we need to start build the divine logic will automatically be with us abundantly.
My prayer is so that the Father will release the work of the Word & of the Spirit that we need to build the divine logic into our lives.
