Ten Power Exhortations - January 14, 2019

 "[Your] faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus." - Philemon 6

We don't have to wander around and around the mountain, wondering where we are supposed to be going and doing a kind of "hit and miss" attempt at fulfilling the will of God.

God will show you what He has for you if you start to see by faith and believe YOU CAN HEAR FROM GOD.
By faith, He can release a word to you if you need confirmation – but He also puts His desires in your heart so that when you fulfill the will of God, it's delightful to you because it's in your heart.

 

 


To look anywhere for wisdom except in the leading of the Holy Spirit is to give oneself up to darkness.

 

 


Is our faith growing stronger, or are we going to slip into the majority that drifts away?


People tend to draw their security by how many people are with them. True faith doesn't. True faith is faith in God, not how many people are with us. True faith is demonstrated by patience, which is why we are told that it is through "faith and patience" that we will inherit the promises that God lays out for us in scripture.


"Then, knowing what lies ahead for you, you won't become bored with being a Christian, nor become spiritually dull and indifferent, but you will be anxious to follow the example of those who receive all that God has promised them because of their strong faith and patience." - Hebrews 6:12 (Living Bible)

 

 

 

 

When you discover who you are in Christ, you begin to measure your life and ministry by Jesus' model. You begin to want what He wants for the same reason He wants it.

 

 

 

 

"While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" (2 Corinthians 4:18).

We're not supposed to fix our eyes on what's temporal and get stuck there. The temporal things aren't going to last. Instead, we need to focus on what's eternal because what's eternal is going to last forever and it's in the Spirit realm.
The eternal is the unseen substance of what's in Heaven. In fact, the eternal overrules the material or physical realm -- the physical symptoms of the sickness that are in your body, and the physical circumstances of your life.

Therefore, we need to say, "Come Holy Spirit; so as it is in Heaven, it will begin to be on earth." As we invite the Kingdom of God and as we say, "Holy Spirit come," He brings the realm of God; He brings the activity of God.

 

 

 

 

You cannot defeat your Giant until you believe that what you have (Christ in you, the hope of glory) and who you are (the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus) is Enough!

 

 

 

 

John 1:38,39 -- Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, "What seek Ye?" They said unto Him, "Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest Thou?" He saith unto them, "Come and see."
Like James and John, we too, "Behold the Lamb of God." Just as He asked them, so He asks us, "What are you seeking?" It is possible to barely know Jesus because we never actually spend time seeking Him.

 

 

 


We are invited to receive the Spirit, live in the Spirit, embrace the gifts of the Spirit, and be sustained and blown along by the very breath of God to advance our DESTINY in the Spirit.

We cannot be in and out, this way and that way if we're going to move and operate and ascend into the incredible levels that God wants to release in us.

 

 

 

 

Self-righteous service requires external rewards. It needs to know that people see and appreciate the effort. It seeks human applause -- with proper religious modesty of course. True service rests contented in HIDDENNESS.

 

 

 


The first step toward sanctification is to admit we are not as holy as we would like to appear. Humility, therefore, is the substructure of transformation. It is the essence of all virtues. Like Jesus, we must delight in becoming "lowly in heart."

"trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and view others with contempt" - Luke 18:9
