"I will bless the LORD who guides me; even at night my heart instructs me." - Psalm 16:9
The promise is that even as you sleep there will be revelation. We are instructed to set our mind and our affections on things above, not on things on earth(Colossians 3:2).
Only when our affections, our emotions, our mind, and our thoughts are set on things above can the peace of God truly come; and it's a guard. We need to let the peace of God rule; it guards our hearts and minds. Then the door of the spirit realm opens up and we begin to live in the supernatural realm because there is a direct connection between peace, the mind, and having our hearts set on entering into the realm of the Spirit. Set your affections on things above!
"Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me." - Psalm 51:10
John 17:16,17 - "They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth."
WE'VE BEEN PLACED IN ANOTHER WORLD; OUR CITIZENSHIP IS IN HEAVEN. WE ARE TO LIVE BY HEAVENLY PRINCIPLES, AND ONE OF THOSE PRINCIPLES IS THAT OF FRAMING OUR WORLD WITH THE WORD OF GOD.
I DON'T CONFESS WHAT I DON'T HAVE - I CONFESS WHAT I DESIRE TO HAVE.
I DON'T TALK ABOUT WHAT I CAN'T DO - I TALK ABOUT WHAT I CAN DO THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME.
GOD HAS DONE HIS PART - HE SENT JESUS. THE HOLY SPIRIT INDWELLS ME, AND I HAVE GOD'S WORD. I USE IT TO FRAME MY WORLD.
Luke 13:20,21 - "To what shall I liken the kingdom of God? It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened."
Much like light that exposes, or salt that preserves, leaven influences its surroundings in a subtle but overpowering way. So it is with the infiltrating power of the Kingdom of God.
Without a revelation of what God intends to do in our lives regarding our CALLING in Christ, we cannot move in overcoming faith.
When the main goal of our faith is to keep us safe from the devil, our faith becomes inferior to what God expects. Jesus had in mind more for us than survival. We are destined to overcome.
Every conversion plunders hell. Every miracle destroys the works of the devil. Every God encounter is an "invasion of the almighty" into our desperate condition. This is our joy.
Revelation 12:11 - "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death."
