Do we realise how much we can become influenced by the people we spend our time around? Influence is a powerful possession; it can be used for both good and bad.
What would life be like if you spent eleven years in a Kings palace? How would you expect yourself to act, think and reason? Would you not be influenced by the King and His royal ways? If you spend enough time in the presence of a King His ways will rub off on you. Similarly, if you spend enough time in the presence of a thief his ways will rub off on you too. Who do you spend your time with? …. in the presence of a #spiritman
Who is He? That every foe should fear His name?
#Jesus #Spiritman. This is the Man that laid down his life for you. His life! #weneedtoknowHim
There’s no greater love than this, that a man would lay down His life for his friends. The Spirit Man!
Imagine a Man who was everything you ever wanted in a Friend and everything you ever wanted to be.
His miraculous provision:
Sometimes we can overlook the things that the Spirit Man does on a daily basis because we are too busy looking outward. Quick story: last week I got a parking fine for spending 10 minutes too long in a car park – I was meeting a friend to arrange something important. #Godswork
Anyway, in that same batch of letters I got a letter from the Employment Tribunal basically stating that a new law had been passed in 2017 and that they were reimbursing any fees paid within the Employment Courts between 2013 and 2017. I had a case in the Employment Appeals Tribunal in 2014 so I filled out a short form; they replied that they are going to reimburse me with a sum of money that amounts to ten times the amount of the parking fine that I received that day. You can call it perfect timing but the Spirit Man is a provider. #Hisprovision #Spiritman
“I shall rebuke the devourer for your sakes that he may not destroy the fruits of your ground.” [Malachi 3:11]
You don’t need to go and hang out with a particular person just so that they can do little things to boost your confidence or tell you how nice you look. You also don’t need to start comparing your life to someone else’s and developing feelings of inadequacy. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God. [Romans 8:7]. To be carnally-minded, means to reason with your flesh and be led by your emotions. “So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you.” [Romans 8:8]. #Spiritman
The more time you spend in the presence of the Spirit Man the more likely you are to be influenced by His ways. Sometimes we can seek validation in the wrong things, you need to hear what the Spirit Man says about you! If you spend time in His presence you will hear His voice:
“For your Maker is you husband the Lord Almighty is His name and your Redeemer is the Holy one of Israel, He is called the God of the whole earth. [Isaiah 54:5]
It’s really important to choose wisely how you spend your time because the time that you spend building up your flesh is time you could spent building up your spirit. The Spirit Man builds you up. #Jesus #SpiritMan #FromtheFathersownrighthand
When you pray ask questions – prayer is a two way conversation!
Some practical steps:
- When you pray, ask questions then use your journal to record the response, when things start to happen you can go back and reference the place in your journal where you wrote about that particular issue. Then you will see that the Spirit Man is real and makes daily moves.
- Make a conscious effort to read you bible and write down God’s Word so you can meditate on it throughout the day. [Psalms 1:2] –And in His law he meditates day and night.
- Spend time in the presence of the Spirit Man so that His character rubs off on you.
