By The Spirit III

1Cor.12:31 “But earnestly desire and zealously cultivate the greatest and best gifts and graces (the higher gifts and the choicest graces) …” (AMPC)

1 Cor. 12:9-10to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.” (NKJV). The third gift is the gift of Faith. There are three types of faith in the scriptures. There is a saving faith. There is the fruit of faith. And there is the gift of faith.

Taste Test

Ps. 119:103 “How sweet your words taste to me; they are sweeter than honey.”

When people encounter you, what taste does it leave in their mouths? Bitter, sweet, or bland? God wants people to encounter us as His children and have an unforgettably sweet taste, a sweetness that they cannot shake off. Remember our illustration from yesterday’s devotional?

Disarm Distraction

Isa.8:13 “Make the Lord of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life. He is the one you should fear. He is the one who should make you tremble.”

The King James Version reads “Sanctify the Lord of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.” Do not be afraid of anything or anyone else? Read the rest of this entry

Endless Love

Lu.10: 25 “One day an expert in religious law stood up to test Jesus by asking him this question: “Teacher, what should I do to inherit eternal life?”

 

Even though the expert in religious law had a very questionable motive, the question he asked was very significant regardless of his motive. Jesus focused on the question and provided for you and I what has the potential to totally change our lives. Read the rest of this entry

Ability

Acts1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” [with emphasis]

 

When Jesus says, “…you will be my witnesses, a lot of people think that all He is referring to is evangelism. Yes, it is evangelism but there are deeper implications. Jesus is saying to us, “You will receive power to become all that God has destined you to become. Read the rest of this entry

Whose Are You?

Ps.100:3 [ERV] “Know that the Lord is God. He made us, and we belong to him. We are his people, the sheep he takes care of.”

 

You are young only once but you can remain immature for life. Even spiritually, you are young only once. Sadly, there are people that are thirty years old spiritually but immature. Meanwhile, some people, barely two years after getting saved, reach maturity. Read the rest of this entry

Bow

Matt.2:11 “They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.”

 

Please read Matt. 2:1-11. From the time of Jesus even up until this time, there are people who sincerely want to worship God. Their hearts are with God, their mouth are with God, they follow God like these wise men and they pay any price to locate Jesus. Read the rest of this entry

Will You?

Hab.2:3 But these things I plan won’t happen right away.  Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.  If it seems slow, wait patiently, for it will surely take place.  It will not be delayed. [emphasis added]

 

Now that we have gotten rid of the challenges to fine tuning, we will turn our focus to fine-tuning and learn how to fine-tune from two prophets in the Bible – Habakkuk in the Old Testament and John the Baptist in the New Testament. Please read Luke Read the rest of this entry

Fresh Fire

Lu.3: 2 while Annas and Caiaphas were high priests, the word of God came to John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness [with emphasis]

 

Yesterday, I began by telling you how the Holy Spirit used Luke 3:1-2 to ignite a hunger in me for the voice and the Word of the Lord. And today, I am going to show you details of this Scripture that can easily be missed but are essential to life change. Lu.3:1Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, his brother Philip tetrarch of Iturea and the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene, 2 while Annas and Caiaphas were high priests, the word of God came to John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness [with emphasis].

Hungry?

Psalm 32:8 “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.  I will advise you and watch over you” [with emphasis].

One question that is constantly on the mind of many believers is how to hear God consistently. Firstly, I implore you to settle this truth in your heart; you have all it takes to hear from God – You are fully equipped. Imagine you just got an expensive antique radio. You bring it out of the box and connect it to the power source. When the radio Read the rest of this entry
