Once again, Holy Spirit reminded me to stay focused and not to be distracted by everything that stops my mind from being fixed on the things of the Spirit. Because “distraction” (the diversion of issue or focus) is the enemy’s attempt to clog the flow of living water in our hearts. When the flow of living water is blocked (stopped flowing), we will once again become someone who is humanistic, carnal, and religious.
We often become deceived by the enemy’s work in the form of distraction. Easily, our mind is shifted to busily think about things that are human rather than things of the Spirit. Because of one or two incidents, conditions, or arising circumstances around us, we become easily distracted.
Holy Spirit reminded me: don’t be deceived by the work of the enemy. There is a sign when we are being tricked; our mind shifts and no longer thinks about the things of the Spirit. Be careful of that deception!
From what Holy Spirit said, I realize that our true fight is not against flesh and blood. Every day, we are battling against the deception of the Devil. And that battle takes place within our MIND. When we can FOCUS OUR MIND TO THINK ABOUT THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT, and make sure that the FLOW OF LIVING WATER KEEPS FLOWING, then truly, WE ARE LIVING IN A VICTORIOUS SPIRIT – our lives will surely be DIVINE.
Simply observe: when we start to manifest the flesh or our humanity, it must surely start from our mind which is thinking about things that are humanistic or carnal. And observe as well when we manifest a divine life – it also starts from a mind that is set on the things of the Spirit!
Romans 8:5 (NASB) For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.
So, to manifest His divinity, we must start with a determination to win the battle in our mind and to govern it with God’s truth every day!
Joshua 1:8 (NASB) This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.
Since the start, God is consistent. God has talked since long ago to Joshua that the true battle is within the mind. When Joshua won the battle in his mind by meditating and speaking the word, then the battle in this natural world will simply follow. The natural will align itself with the divine! Death has been swallowed up in victory!
Right now, our part is to have the determination and perseverance to meditate and declare the word. As for the rest, Holy Spirit will help and lead us to walk in the truth (His divinity). #ILoveGod
